A passenger who recently traveled through Atlanta believes he is the victim of such a theft. From fox5atlanta.com: “I said, ‘What happened?’ She said, ‘Your bag is delayed.’ I said, ‘What do you mean, delay?’ She said, ‘It didn’t make the flight.;”The gun owner says a helpful Delta agent in Fort Lauderdale told him the airline map indicated the gun was still in Atlanta.But once he returned to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Sunday, that story changed.“He goes to type...

    CLEVELAND (WJW) — Ramps near Cleveland Hopkins International Airport were blocked Saturday afternoon starting around 3 p.m. due to a reported protest. Although the ramps reopened, a law enforcement presence was on scene for a while afterward, as seen on Ohio Department of Transportation/OHGO camera footage. At the time, ODOT described the shutdown as an “other incident,” but FOX 8 camera crews were able to get footage of people standing next to parked cars, some holding Palestinian flags. The two blockages were at ramp I-480 Westbound to SR-237 Southbound and ramp I-71 Southbound to SR-237 Southbound. Cleveland police released the...

    The Transportation Security Administration began developing the new system five years ago to make screening more efficient and give passengers more autonomy and control over the pace of their screening. The TSA checkpoint being tested in Las Vegas — initially only for TSA PreCheck customers and only in the English language — incorporates a screen with do-it-yourself instructions for travelers on how to smoothly pass themselves and their carry-on luggage through pre-flight screening with little or no help from uniformed TSA officers. Testing is being done at a unique “innovation checkpoint” the TSA unveiled in 2019 in Harry Reid Airport’s...

    A video exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation appears to show a U.S. service member guarding a room chock-full of illegal immigrants at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International airport. Republican state Sen. Colton Moore, who is the vice chairman of the Georgia Freedom Caucus, took the video Tuesday night and told the DCNF that he learned of the hidden room full of migrants through a “whistleblower” at Atlanta’s airport, who noticed an influx of illegal migrants coming through the facility in recent months. In the video, there appears to be a uniformed soldier guarding a room full of migrants and...

    The governor of Massachusetts is calling on the Biden administration to act, as nearly 100 migrants camp out in Boston’s international airport while the city’s shelters are at capacity. Dozens of migrant families, including several with young children, have been sleeping on the cold floor of Logan International Airport’s international terminal, reports the New York Post. The sad scenes look similar to those at the Chicago O’Hare Airport, which local reports have described as a “scene from Mad Max,” a dystopian movie set in a post-apocalyptic world.

    Virginia is warning travelers that they may have been exposed to measles earlier this month at the two airports in the Washington, D.C., area. The Virginia Public Health Department said it was notified of confirmed cases of measles at Dulles International Airport on Jan. 3 and Ronald Reagan National Airport on Jan. 4. Health officials are especially urging those who are not fully vaccinated against measles to monitor for symptoms — which typically emerge seven to 14 days after the initial exposure. The health department also noted that there are two stages of measles symptoms.

Libs of TikTok found this going on at Chicago's famed O'Hare Airport, one of the country's largest and busiest: BREAKING: I received this from a source in O’Hare Airport in Chicago. Parts of the airport were sectioned off to house illegals. There were too many illegals and now they overflowed into the terminal area. My source says they were mainly Hispanic men and he was asked not to record. Why are they trying to hide this?! Obviously, they ran out of space but...

Tommy Dorfman, a biological male who identifies as female and uses she/her pronouns, posted a TikTok video showing himself at LaGuardia Airport on December 22. He was waiting to board a flight to his hometown of Atlanta, presumably to celebrate...
