Trump’s choice for Homeland Security Adviser Could Impact Travelers Using TSA’s PreCheck

President-elect Donald Trump’ choice for homeland security adviser could impact travelers who use the TSA’s PreCheck process.

Thomas P. Bossert, a former aide to former President George W. Bush, has expressed skepticism about the PreCheck process, saying more stringent background checks and longer wait times may be necessary, the Palm Beach Daily News reports. 

“Tom brings enormous depth and breadth of knowledge and experience to protecting the homeland to our senior White House team,” Trump said in a news release. “He has a handle on the complexity of homeland security, counter terrorism, and cyber security challenges. He will be an invaluable asset to our administration.”

In op-eds, Bossert said the TSA “is not an intelligence agency. It is historically a consumer of intelligence gathered and analyzed by others.”

More people are using PreCheck to alleviate long waits at airports, with more than 4 million people signed up.

However, some observers have criticized the system as lax and may have holes in the background checks process.

“There is no screening algorithm and no database check that can accurately predict human behavior — especially on the scale of millions,” former TSA administrator Kip Hawley said last week in an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times.
