ROSKAM STATEMENT ON IMMIGRATION RAID AT O'HARE AIRPORT

Congressman Peter J. Roskam (R-IL) today issued the following statement after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raided O'Hare International Airport, located in Roskam's Congressional District, to arrest illegal immigrants with false documents who were being allowed to load cargo onto airplanes:

"While law-abiding citizens walk through metal detectors to board their planes, illegal immigrants have skirted security measures at O'Hare to become baggage handlers gaining direct access to planes.

"The continued pattern of security lapses at O'Hare Airport has made it clear that countless American lives are at risk. We live in a dangerous world where terrorists will exploit any weakness in our transportation system. This said, we must require all airport employees go through continual rigorous background checks to expose any security risks."
