Calls for TSA changes after 11 passengers bypassed security screening at JFK

Terminal 5 at John F. Kennedy International Airport in 2008.

"Early reports indicate three passengers did not receive required secondary screening after alarming the walk through metal detector", the TSA said, noting that carry-on bags were appropriately screened and "a K9 team was present at the checkpoint at the time of the incident", the Post reported.

TSA expects to screen almost 29,000 passengers on Presidents Day, an 11 percent increase over the same day previous year, said TSA spokeswoman Lorie Dankers.

Trump administration directs Border Patrol, ICE to expand deportations
The Department of Homeland Security has not denied the existence of the memos but has not provided further details. Immigrant advocate and attorney Patrick Young says the new deportation guidelines are frightening and unnecessary.

"TSA management must refocus their people on screening passengers and cargo", McClain said. And despite law enforcement flooding the airport looking for the passengers, they were not found.

The TSA accidentally let several people waltz through a security checkpoint without being properly screened on Monday morning - and to make matters worse, it took the agency two hours to alert police to the security breach.

Three of the wayward passengers set off a metal detector, and none of the 11 bothered to remove their shoes, according to a photo obtained by the NYDN.

She heads the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, Azerbaijan's largest non-governmental organization. She and her husband have two adult daughters and a student son.

Worse yet, TSA agents didn't notify police about the incident until two hours later.

"Once our review is complete, TSA will discipline and retrain employees as appropriate", the agency said.

Congress' Subcommittee on Transportation Security is now reviewing the bill. They said they searched the terminal for those passengers around 8 a.m. after getting "belated notification" from the Transportation Security Administration.
