(FreedomBeacon.com)- As Federal Air Marshals (FAM) are being sent to the southern border to facilitate the arrival of new illegal immigrants by the day, Al Qaeda terrorists are plotting new plane attacks in the United States, according to Judicial Watch.
“Al-Qaeda says upcoming attacks on US, possibly involving planes, will use new techniques and tactics,” reads a new intelligence alert from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sources.
The threats come at a time when the Biden administration is sending 150-200 FAM to the border to assist with what they call “a surge in irregular migration” by providing watch over hospitals and distributing welfare checks. The deployments will reportedly continue, and the specially trained agents are frustrated about their new mission. FAM was created under the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) after 9/11 to prevent another terrorist attack.
The Air Marshal National Council, which represents thousands of air marshals nationwide, has come out against the TSA Administrator David Pekoske and FAM Director Tirrell Stevenson. They accused the two of violating federal law by assigning marshals to assist with the border which has no relation to the TSA’s mission.
“The statute does not give the Administrator any authority to deploy TSA or FAM employees to the southern border to perform non transportation security related matters,” the complaint to the DHS Inspector General states.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Pekoske, and Stevenson received a letter from the council after they learned of the terror plans, urging them to stop the deployments and “do what the American taxpayers pay them to do,” which is to protect transportation passengers. The letter continues to ask how is it that marshals are being sent to the border if the border is allegedly secure. If there is no emergency, then the marshals are being wasted.
Meanwhile, the transportation system and passengers are at risk.
