Homeland Security’s inspector general is investigating complaints that the TSA is illegally profiling passengers.
The Federal Times reports  that a TSA employee in Minneapolis complained that a supervisor told him to treat Somali residents “differently from others who visit the Minneapolis TSA office.”
The TSA has been under fire in recent years over claims by federal officers that they were instructed racially profile people.
The TSA responded that it does not condone profiling.
“The Transportation Security Administration does not profile, nor does it tolerate profiling by employees,” a TSA spokesperson said. “TSA welcomes the Office of Inspector General’s investigation and will cooperate fully, but cannot comment until the investigation is complete.”
