Sonia Labosco is the executive director of the Air Marshal National Council. The Biden administration has made air travel more dangerous and could lead to another disaster like 9/11. They are removing the air marshals from the planes and moving them south border to ensure that they are safe.
It is obvious that another 9/11 must be stopped. In the past two weeks, there have been numerous incidents. This is a threat of level 4. This means someone tried to enter Southwest’s cockpit on Tuesday. Let’s do the job that we were trained to …
We’re now in decline. They take us out of the air for border crossings, and these ground-based duties threaten our chances of stopping another terrorist attack.
She said that marshals are present at more than 5% of all flights during normal operations.
As we enter peak holiday travel season, the Biden administration has been pulling hundreds of federal Air Marshals out of the skies & redeploying them to the southern border to perform humanitarian tasks w/ migrants and essentially be social workers. https://t.co/sGGbSshPXU

Their website states that the Air Marshal National Council (Advocacy Group), is dedicated to protecting marshals’ rights. It “exclusively [fights] for] Federal Air Marshals to receive maximum legal protection. Labosco wrote President Obama a letter recently but didn’t receive a response.
He wrote us another letter over the weekend because we had Level 4 and Level 3 incidents. The person who cut someone’s throat with a straight razor is serious.
The Department of Homeland Security requested that the marshals be diverted to the border. Alejandro Mayorkas (DHS Secretary) didn’t admit there had been a crisis earlier in the month. At a congressional hearing, he stated that the border was safe.
Rep. Mayorkas was interviewed by Jeff Van Drew (R–NJ) about the deployment of air marshals.
You deployed highly-trained and highly-skilled Federal Air Marshals to combat the border crisis. They can also perform other law enforcement duties such as transport, hospital watch, and transport.
DHS ordered hundreds of Air Marshals to be removed from the skies during one of America’s busiest travel seasons. This is despite the fact you claim America’s aviation infrastructure is under threat.
Mayorkas didn’t refute the accusation but he simply flatly denied that marshals were doing janitorial work.
Recent incidents have demonstrated the importance of air marshals. These “covert travelers” are trained to respond to in-air emergencies.
Merrill Darrell Fackrell (41), was arrested after he held a straight edge to the throat and neck of another passenger on a flight between New York City and Salt Lake City.
Frontier Airlines flight from Cincinnati to Tampa was due to land on Friday. However, it made an emergency landing in Atlanta on Friday. After another passenger threatened passengers with a boxcutter, the plane made an emergency landing in Atlanta. Both men had already passed security at the airport.
