The U.S. Federal Air Marshal Service is planning to defy Democrat President Joe Biden and refuse to deploy to the southern border to help with the migration crisis.
Air Marshal National Council President David Londo said:
“The rank and file air marshals are going to refuse to deploy and risk termination.
“You’re almost going to have a mutiny of a federal agency, which is unheard of.
“Morale is so destroyed from this.
“I’ve never seen anything like this.”
Londo wrote a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas that said “these highly skilled air marshals are being made to perform mainly non-law enforcement civilian humanitarian duties.”
The Transportation Security Administration denied Londo’s claims saying they are “entirely inaccurate and does not reflect the critical and professional law enforcement role these officers perform.”
Air Marshal National Council President Sonia Labosco called on Biden to stop sending air marshals to the southern border earlier:
“We have been decimated,” Labosco said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends First.”
“We have been depleted.
“We’re on less than 1% of flights.
“These ground-based duties that they’re pulling us out of the sky to go to the border are just demolishing our chances at stopping another 9/11.
“They have a humanitarian heart. We empathize with what’s happening at the border as human beings.
“However, it does not take away the responsibility or the oath that we have as air marshals to protect our aviation domain.
“We actually wrote him another letter over the weekend because we had a level four and a level three incident.
“Level four means that they tried to breach the cockpit.
“Level three, we had two of those, which means there were life-threatening behaviors on one of those aircraft.
“An individual had a straight razor to a passenger’s throat.
“So these are very serious incidents.”
“The Air Marshal National Council is calling on the president and DHS Secretary Mayorkas, to please stop this deployment of air marshals from the aircraft and reallocating them to the border,” Labosco said.
