Illegal Immigration: No Security Threat?
Six illegals nabbed in Atlanta airport's secure areaTechnorati Tags: illegal immigration, security, terrorism, atlanta airport
ATLANTA Authorities say six illegal aliens hired to do work in the secure area of one of America's busiest airports are now under arrest.
Investigators say all had security badges giving them access to the tarmac and other normally restricted areas at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. All six are said to be Mexicans working for a private company that was hired to do some drywall work.
Federal immigration officials don't believe the men posed a specific threat. But the government is concerned that they managed to get clearances for the airport's secure area.
Neither the airport nor the company the men worked for immediately responded to messages for a comment.
In more than three and a-half years, immigration officials say they've found close to six-thousand unauthorized airport workers in the U-S.
