UPDATE: The TSA has responded:
TSA’s policy is that officers will not ask parents to do anything that would distance them from their children during the screening process. Our goal is to provide the highest level of security while ensuring that all passengers are treated with courtesy and respect. TSA is currently reviewing the circumstances involving the screening procedures for this family and will take appropriate action if necessary.
There is not much we can add to this tale of a woman from Annapolis traveling with her infant son through Atlanta. The TSA separated her from her infant while they searched him and refused to heed her cries and pleas.
We have not received a comment from the TSA at this point, but you can read Nic’s tale here!
