Honolulu TSA Agents Engaging in Racial Profiling of Mexican Passengers

Most of us are pretty sick and tired of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) policies at the airports but realize they are in place to protect all of us.

Well it appears that a group of Honolulu TSA agents were taking their job a bit further and profiling folks that looked like Mexicans.

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), the ranking Democrat on the Homeland Security Committee, wrote a letter to TSA Administrator John Pistole after reports that Mexican passengers were targeted by TSA at airports in Honolulu, Hawaii and Newark, N.J.

The officers, who Thompson said were part of TSA’s Screening of Passengers by Observation Technique (SPOT) program, were engaging in racial profiling, the Mississippi lawmaker said.
