Bill would expose TSA screeners to laws prohibiting sexual assault

President of Electronic Privacy Information Center says body scans, pat-downs are unconstitutional

Ron Paul, a Republican congressman from Texas, introduced the American Traveler Dignity Act to the House on Wednesday in response to a growing controversy surrounding the use of body scanners and “enhanced” pat-downs being used by the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) at airports.

“I am not alone in believing that we Americans should never give up our rights in order to travel,” Paul said.

The bill, HR 6416, would remove legal immunity from federal employees who subject an individual to any physical contact, x-rays, or aids in the creation of any part of a individual’s body as a condition to travel in an aircraft.

“It means they are subject to the same laws as the rest of us,” Paul explained.
