Still think Israeli airport security is 'too expensive'?

I have written many, many posts over the years calling on the United States to implement Israeli style airport security. The excuse I keep hearing is it's 'too expensive.'

On Sunday at Chicago-OHare - an airport I fly through from time to time - 'dozens' of people missed their flights and ended up spending the night at the airport on army cots due to security lines that were three hours long.

What does that cost you, America?

Let's go to the videotape.

For the record, in Israel, from arrival at the airport to the end of passport control, I am through the airport in 30-45 minutes (okay, I have the equivalent of a trusted traveler card in Israel, so I don't wait in line for passport control).

As the @Instapundit says

Nothing to do with expense and everything to do with profiling.

Sheriff Joe Arapacio was just hit with contempt of court by a federal judge because he was profiling when checking people for being illegals. For some reason, he was checking Hispanics - which the judge said is illegal.

Unfortunately, there were no illegal Swedes or Chinese for the Sheriff to check.

pellehDin, An even worse thing happened in Montana.
The Montana Supreme Court threw out the last of an immigration bill the voters enacted. ----------------------
The law required state officials to deny services to people found to be in the country illegally, and to turn over their names to immigration officials for possible deportation proceedings. The law used the term "illegal aliens," which is not found in federal immigration laws...

What do you call these people then???

It defined "illegal alien" as a person who is not a U.S. citizen who unlawfully entered or unlawfully remained in the United States.

Seems pretty straightforward.
Whats the problem???

The courts ruled the state was attempting to meddle in an area of federal jurisdiction using a term that is unconstitutional...

If that term is unconstitutional then what do you call people that fit that description???

This is insanity at its worst.

"Uninvited freeloaders"?? "Anticipatory deportees" ? "Unarrested criminals" ?? "Inchoate invaders". ? דמד

That security guy in the white koppel looks like Vlad Putin.
