There’s a huge question being raised after an illegal alien who was being deported was able to escape the airport and jump into a cab to flee: Why in the world would airport security or the ICE agent take off the handcuffs of a “violent deportee” while going through security? How could this be the policy? Remember that there is an alternative to the metal screening. The agents could also pat down the guy like they do to other passengers.
Fox News reports:
A man described as a “violent deportee” reportedly managed to escape from federal immigration custody Tuesday night at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City.
U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) agents removed the unidentified man’s handcuffs while going through airport security, law enforcement sources told the New York Daily News. He eluded authorities at Gate B23 in Terminal 4 at around 8:30 p.m. local time.
He was supposed to be escorted onto a plane. Where was he going? All of these things are big questions not being answered by authorities. Not to mention, a photo of the guy that would be great to have. Don’t the authorities want to alert the public?
The man was previously arrested on a weapons charge, according to the New York Daily News.
A law enforcement source told the newspaper that video captured the man jumping into a taxi and leaving the airport….
So this guy is on the loose now and there is no picture provided of him.
