    The U.S. government already requires international passengers to participate in the Advanced Passenger Information System, providing their full name, gender, date of birth, nationality, country of residence, and travel document type and number to the TSA before boarding. Under the proposed Secure Flight Program, this procedure would also be required on domestic flights.
    Currently, individual airlines are responsible for checking the passenger manifests against the "no fly" and "enhanced screening" lists provided by the TSA. The new programs are part of a concerted effort to centralize this process, so that the TSA itself will check all supplied information against these lists, and then instruct the airline or airport staff as to how to proceed.
    The Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) has criticized the new Secure Flight rules for their secrecy and lack of accountability. The association has expressed concern that there is no clear appeals process for passengers denied boarding or continually forced to undergo enhanced security screening.
    "On the surface, the new Secure Flight program no longer relies on commercial databases and appears to have reduced the number of names on the ‘No Fly’ list," said ACTE Executive Director Susan Gurley. "It also seems that the responsibility for checking data is no longer abrogated to the airlines. While this is a step in the right direction, it prompts the industry to ask what was the origin of this new data, how is it stored, who has access to it, and how can it be corrected."

    Guys the APIS system is old as hell, basically used to make sure that the airlines are transmitting the correct number of passenger thats onboard of the aircraft and making sure non are are on a certain list blabla. I would say go ahead and do it. the funny thing about it is that these monkeys in washington come up with all sorts of IDEAs to implement but in reality the APIS system is taxed as it runs a day late so adding the ton of domestic flights will only weaken the system that much more. by the time they figure out the error more then likely either the person was caught or released the latter being more common lol.

    Oh and by the way TSA is a stupid agency that needs to be undone... screeners hired can't think for themselves, and TSA keeps trying to ride the authorities given to other agencies cause their authority is so damm limited. When the change in administration occures hopefully the Thousands Standing Around will go back to the private sector as it was. their are studies out their that I don't have right now that says it has cost the government more money to get the same or worse level of screening as before. Who would have thought it. Fire them all and get isrealies in this.

    They have been demanding our papers for years now and no-one seems to mind, it keeps drunk drivers from running over mad moms.
    I was arrested once for "concealing my identity" in Jacksonville because I refused to produce my papers when a LEO demanded them while I was taking a walk one morning before daylight. Had to have my wife come to the police station with my "papers" to get me released;still wonder if they would have shot me if she hadn't came?

    This is very true, and I think in my state if you are being detained for questioning on something you have to show your ID if requested if you refuse it's off to the slammer for you. The question then becomes why they questioning you at the time, is it just because you are walking down the street before light? In that case I think you have a good reason to fight the arrest.
    When I was a kid growing up in a large city they had laws on the books about more that 3 people in a group constituted a gang and you were arrested on the spot, people didn't complain about this because there was a huge gang problem.

    Problem I have is I don't need papers as all the cops here know me, well I use to work in LE and my wife does now so it's hard to keep a low profile, drive to work and they all wave at me in my car, every morning I get a police spot light in my living room window as the patrol car drives by, good thing I live in an area where the cops are normal people and don't typically have the gestapo mindset.
