Biden’s woke Transportation Security Administration has spent $18.6 million on policies and systems to screen “non-binary” air travelers.
The federal waste watchdog group OpenTheBooks.com revealed the new screening policies that go on line as Jan. begins.
The $18.6 million comes from President Joe Biden’s annual budget, the FY22 Omnibus Appropriations fund, to improve Advanced Imaging Technology units in airport checkpoints, updating the algorithm for “increased accuracy and efficiency.”
When travelers’ assumed genders don’t match what the imaging technology identifies them as, they are subject to additional screenings and sometimes pat downs.
TSA receives 26,542 screening complaints annually, Fox News reported, 6 percent of which are from members of the LGBTQ community.
TSA Executive Director for Travel Engagement Jose Bonilla said he is confident the new sharper imaging technology will cut down the number of people subjected to pat-downs and the number of complaints from minority communities.
“This technology should really be gender-neutral, you know it really should be, and we’re there,” Bonilla said.
The TSA also launched a webpage dedicated to transgender/nonbinary and gender nonconforming passengers traveling through the nation’s airports that details all the steps the agency is taking to ensure they are treated with dignity and respect.
It’s just another example of the Biden administration wasting millions of our tax dollars to push the radical LGBTQ agenda.
