‘There Is A Plan To Destroy America’: TSA Sign Says Migrants Without ID Can Choose Not To Have Photo Taken When Entering U.S.

A photo taken from Miami International Airport showed a notice from the Transportation Security Administration indicating that migrants entering the U.S. at the airport did not have to supply a photo or have their photo taken in order to enter the country.

Political commentator Dave Rubin snapped the photo, tweeting, “This is the state of absolute insanity happening at our airports. I’m in the Pre-TSA line, where migrants don’t have to have an ID to get through security and it’s their choice whether they want their picture taken. There is a plan to destroy America.”

The sign read, “U.S. airport Non-U.S. Citizen Document Validation Using CBP One Technology.” CBP One is a mobile application launched in October 2020 to help immigrants preschedule appointments at ports of entry.  

The sign continued as follows:

TSA is partnering with CBP to test the use of CBP One at certain TSA checkpoints to validate adult non-U.S. citizen travel documentation when the traveler does not otherwise have an acceptable form of identification.

How it works: 1. Notify the TSA officer that you are a migrant. 2. The TSA officer will take a photo (optional). 3. If requested, provide your alien identification number or biographic information. 4. Follow officer instruction.

Photo capture is voluntary.  You may decline to have your photo taken. If you do not wish to have your phot taken, please notify a TSA Officer. You must still provide your alien identification number or biographical information to the TSA Officer, even if you do not have your phot taken.

CBP One only verifies the information you previously provided to CBP and will not store your information. Because your information is verified through CBP One, TSA will also not store your information as part of this process.


U.S. Customs and Border Protection noted last year, “On February 23rd, CBP One™ released an update to streamline the photo capture and scheduling process. This includes requiring individuals to submit their information prior to and separate from scheduling an appointment. Updates were made to enhance the geolocation service required to schedule an appointment. Starting April 29, 2023, the CBP One™ application will remove the vulnerability requirement in preparation for the end of Title 42. Starting May 10, 2023, the CBP One™ application will allow for additional time to complete the appointment request process.”
