Should the TSA Stop Letting Non-PreCheck Travelers Into PreCheck Lanes?

Argument in favor

The TSA’s PreCheck program allows low-risk passengers to use expedited security lines because they have been subject to background checks, provided biographical information about themselves, and paid a membership fee for the program. Air travelers who haven’t completed these procedures aren’t low-risk, and shouldn’t be allowed to use expedited screening lines due to security considerations.

Why isn't your head exploding over this. As a pre-check passenger, I had to jump through the hoops and pay the bucks, so as an American, I can fly around America. That, in itself, should piss you off. it does me. However, since I had to jump through those hoops, why should joe public be allowed to get into my line and reap the same reward as me? If the lines are to long, then put more staff and more gates to work. Remember, it is the government who mandated full body searches, so do your job and make it work.

I paid $80 and had to go through fingerprinting and a background check. What was the point of that, if just anyone can go through the line?

Absolutely. What’s the point of going through the process of Pre-Check if it’s open to everyone regardless of compliance with Pre-Check requirements.

Argument opposed

Long lines at airport security are a bigger security risk than moving people who’ve been cleared by explosives-sniffing dogs into the PreCheck line. Forcing the TSA to end the practice of diverting people from regular security lines into PreCheck lines will inevitably make air travel less efficient and more unpleasant for travelers, as well.

Why is this an issue? This isn’t a law, it’s a service offered at the airports. Pay for it, use it, be offered it as a complimentary benefit, how exactly is this a concern or issue of the public good. We have children still ripped from their families, we have escalating healthcare issues, we have a national disgrace in the form of A person and his actions. Next item please...we have a Country to be stewards of. This item is trivial and not worthy of Congressional intervention. I paid and I don’t care a cent about this. #Vote

Children or elders traveling with someone who is already cleared should be allowed through the precheck line with he cleared person.

    While hundreds of TSA agents have been arrested for theft and other offenses, they have not caught a single terrorist. There is no accountability in the current bureaucratic nightmare that is the TSA. The whole agency should be scrapped and private security companies should be hired by the airports/airlines instead.

    Can we maybe address important things? Healthcare? Stagnant wages? Gun control? Education? Things that are not micromanaging the length of a queue at the airport. Because on the scale of important shit that’s pretty low. Oooo you paid some money. Oh my you had fingerprints done and a background check! GOSH, LIFE IS HARD. Remind me again, this is precheck thing is VOLUNTARY right? It IS? So no one was FORCED into it? Gosh. Maybe then folks should stop acting like entitled brats whining about sharing their toys with their siblings.

    What’s the purpose of having PreCheck lanes if any/every body can use them? Either use them properly or don’t have them at all.

    Yes but that's only the first step. The main goal should be the abolition of the TSA and other wasteful government agencies

    This is what OUR Congress is up to right now? MICRO-MANAGING the TSA? Good God - there are many more important things to do. If this is your best, resign and let someone with vision serve.

    Having been behind an “over 75” passenger that required THREE passes through the metal detector to finally find all his change, get people who haven’t been cleared OUT of the lane I paid and passed a background check to use. Age doesn’t determine threat. Set up a senior lane if that’s more efficient.

    TSA is at best security theater and at worst a violation of the 4th amendment. The entire burden, the presumption of "suspect till proven innocent", should be made as light as possible, to the point of removal.

    If political correctness did not exist, and we implemented our airport security like they do in Israel, we could do away with much of the TSA and the long lines. It’s only because of political correctness that profiling is not allowed. We know that all terrorists are Muslim but not all Muslims are terrorists. Simple logic would tell you to screen Muslims boarding planes. Also, our FBI and CIA should know who to be watching. If not, just talk to the Israel’s and they’ll tell you how to do it efficiently and cheaply with out inconveniencing every American traveler.

    Have Americans been so frightened by this Administration that they feel unsafe If a child under the age of 12 or a senior over the age of 75, traveling on the same reservation as someone who has passed pre-Security, goes through with them? What happened to America the brave? Every single Administration prior to this one has kept Americans safe without a wall, without extreme vetting, without federal agents snapping people off of our streets.

    The whole purpose of precheck is for those of us that have gone through the process, not for those that didn't so they need to go through the regular lanes.
