WTF? While the TSA is groping grandmas, forcing people with insulin pumps to walk through metal detectors, referring to the naked body scanners as "dick measuring devices", "randomly selecting" attractive women for extra screening, hiring priests who where defrocked for child molestation and making our travels significantly less enjoyable, illegals and people on the no-fly list are teaching and attending flight school and even becoming pilots.

After 9/11, TSA founded the Alien Flight Student Program (AFSP) to screen non-US citizens in order to provide a threat assessment before an individual’s flight school clearance.
Yet somehow 26,000 foreign nationals who finished their flight lessons between January 2006 and September 2011, “ had not applied to the AFSP or been vetted by TSA before taking flight training and receiving an FAA airman certificate."
Furthermore, US Customs and Immigration found that illegal immigrants were being trained to fly.
In 2010, a Boston-area flight school trained 25 students who "consisted primarily of visa overstays and illegal aliens," according to investigator John Woods. The operator of the flight school was also undocumented.
