Transportation Security Administration agents are now able to stop passengers who attempt to board a plane at an airport, a change that critics say will lead to more Americans being stopped.
The TSA has been allowed to temporarily restrict the travel of passengers who refuse to show identification, according to documents obtained by Politico.
Passengers are now required to show a valid government-issued ID at the check-in counter.
This includes people traveling to a country with a no-fly zone or who are traveling in the U.S. for a business trip.
The TSA’s new policy allows agents to request that passengers present a government-issue ID.
Passengers can also be asked to show proof of identity.
A spokesperson for the TSA told Politico that the agency has been following the court orders, and that it is “reviewing and adjusting our policies and procedures to reflect the Supreme Court’s rulings.”
The new policy applies to flights from Chicago, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Miami, Las Vegas, Dallas-Fort Worth, Orlando and New York.
Travelers with non-US passports are also required to present a photo ID and travel documents, the spokesperson said.
The policy was announced after President Donald Trump signed a sweeping executive order that allowed the TSA to temporarily suspend travel restrictions for travelers coming from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, Libya and Iraq.
