Illegal aliens okayed to pilot over U.S. Skies
Since the 9/11 tragedy, most might assume that stringent safeguards would be put in place to keep illegal aliens from being able to access flight training. But apparently not. According to the report, "a 'weakness' in TSA's Alien Flight Student Program, doesn't check immigration status."
First of all, who even knew that the TSA had an Alien Flight Student Program, and given the fact that it is an alien flight student program wouldn't it make great sense to check immigration status at the very top of the list?
Oh, and there's more ...
According to the report, three of the 25 illegal aliens who were approved for flight training already possessed flight credentials -- three had FAA pilot's licenses, two held FAA private pilot certificates and one held an FAA commercial pilot certificate.
The news didn't set well with Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL) chairman of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security, who told CNSNews, "Ten years after 9/11, there are foreign nationals in the United States trained to fly just like Mohammed Atta and the other 9/11 hijackers did, and not all of them are necessarily getting a security background check."
Given how this administration panders to illegals -- undermining efforts by U.S. Border Patrol agents, threatening individual states that attempt to protect their own borders, it would be foolish to think this is an isolated incident.
As a nation we are under siege and we have a President who is using Executive Order, and subverting the U.S. Constitution to ensure that even more illegals flood across our borders!
Given the climate of our nation, it's hard not to argue that we are headed for another 9/11 attack!

Petition Opposing Obama's Illegal Fast-Track Amnesty Efforts
n recent weeks, the Obama Administration has taken two dramatic actions to create "backdoor" amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. First, by Executive Order, The Obama Administration announced a policy that allows hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants to gain a "Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver" putting them on a fast track to legal status. Then, on June 15, the administration decided (without Congress) that illegal aliens with legal relatives (spouse, parent or child) in this country can claim "extreme hardship" and thus file for the Amnesty Waiver without having to leave the country.
From the beginning of the illegal immigration debate, Grassfire Nation has been on the leading edge in spearheading grassroots efforts to educate and mobilize citizens to action -- to protect and preserve our sovereignty and security.
These latest "backdoor" amnesty efforts by President Obama have drawn harsh criticism from key members of Congress who believe his actions are unconstitutional and Grassfire Nation is moving rapidly to mobilize an additional 50,000 citizens who oppose Obama's Amnesty Actions and support legal and legislative efforts to stop the unmitigated flow of illegal alien traffic into our nation.
The Petition States:
As a concerned citizen, I oppose the Obama Administration's efforts through Executive Order to fast-track illegal aliens toward legal status. These efforts by Obama are an affront to our Constitution and will weaken immigration law while creating a fast-track to legal status for law-breaking illegal aliens. To this end, I support state's rights to secure their borders, as well as all legal and legislative efforts to force Obama to abide by the established laws of our nation.If you are interested in signing this petition, visit this link.
