The fees are currently $2.50 for a non-stop flight or $5.00 for a trip with a layover, but with next month’s increase that Congress approved back in December, the new fees will be $5.60 for a non-stop flight and an extra $5.60 for each leg of the trip when the flights are over four hours apart.
“The revenue is to be used to offset TSA costs for providing civil aviation security services, after stipulated amounts are applied to reduction of the Federal deficit,” stated Ross Feinstein, press secretary for the TSA, in a press release to Fox Business.
In other words, the TSA wants to charge passengers more money for having their rights violated with impunity while also ensuring that airports across America are zones of Orwellian tyranny intended to turn America into a compliant prison population.
Time and time again, passengers have complained about being sexually assaulted by TSA screeners, yet the agency has done nothing to stop such practices even though the TSA has quietly admitted that the invasive body scanners and pat downs are ineffective at stopping a threat of which the agency admits “there is no evidence.”
“…Both the nude body scanners and the pat-downs are more extensive and intensive than necessary to detect non-metallic explosives in light of available alternatives,” reads a Statement of Argument for a court case regarding the TSA’s security practices. “Additionally, they are ineffective at addressing the threat at hand and are incredibly invasive, which is to be balanced against the risk of a threat for which the TSA has admitted there is no evidence. Accordingly, both procedures are independently unconstitutional.”
Another sealed document from the same court case points out that the TSA “analyzed hijackings in 2007, and found seven hijacking incidents across the globe, but none of them involved actual explosive devices,” adding that the last attempt to bring an explosive on-board an airplane through a U.S. airport occurred over 35 years ago.
“…The government concedes that it would be difficult to have a repeat of 9/11 due to hardened cockpit doors and the willingness of passengers to challenge hijackers rather than assume a hijacking merely means a diversion to Cuba,” the document added.
Yet the TSA’s abuse of Americans continues.
Back in October, for example, a TSA loudspeaker announcement warned travelers who cracked jokes about the agency’s absurd security practices could be arrested for engaging in free speech.
“You are also reminded that any inappropriate remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your arrest,” the message stated.
The TSA has also ordered travelers who had already passed security to “freeze” on command.
