"Secure Flight" and the Right to Travel
I've been getting too many questions to answer individually about the regulations issued last week for the so-called Secure Flight program to require ID and permision for air travel in the USA: What does it mean? How will it work (and will it work)? When will it go into effect?
I've worked with the Identity Project on a set of Answers to Frequently-Asked Questions about Secure Flight which may help. If you still have questions after reading the FAQ, let me know.
And if the question that you are left with, after learning about "Secure Flight", is "What can I do about it?", you might want to read the recommendations submitted to the Obama transition team by the Identity Project, identifying what the new Presidential administration, and the new Congress, could and should do to restore and protect the right to travel in the USA. I hope those recommendations give you ideas for letters to the the editor of your local paper, to the President-Elect, and to incoming and incumbent members of the House and Senate.
