A union representing Border Patrol agents charge that the TSA is allowing undocumented immigrants to board American planes without a passport or other official identification, Fox News reports.

TSA strongly denies claims that the TSA is allowing immigrants to board planes with a “Notice to Appear” in lieu of proper identification.

“This is the dream of every terrorist in the world,” Shawn Moran, vice president of the union, told Fox News. “There is no way of knowing who is on board the jetliners.”

Fox News says Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, confirmed immigrants were boarding planes without proper ID.

“TSA is letting them go around security,” the source told Judicial Watch. “No picture ID, just a slip of paper.”

The TSA says it’s not true.

“These reports are false,” the TSA said in a statement. “A Notice to Appear, issued by the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), is not an acceptable form of ID at the TSA checkpoint.”
