An illegal immigrant from Guyana stole the identity of Anthony Frair of NY and used it to get a job as a flight attendant with Spirit Airlines. Jophan Porter, 38, is charged with identity fraud and is currently in Miami-Dade County jail.

 

In addition to securing a job at American Airlines, Jophan Porter, 38, used the stolen ID to obtain a US passport, a US Department of Transportation ID card and at least three Florida driver’s licenses.
The New York Post reported -

In a colossal failure of 9/11 security measures, an illegal immigrant used the stolen ID of a Bronx man with an arrest record to get hired as an airline flight attendant, and flew several trips as a trainee before he was busted yesterday, authorities said.

Besides getting a job at American Eagle, Jophan Porter, 38, used the stolen ID to obtain a US passport, a US Department of Transportation ID card and at least three Florida driver’s licenses, law-enforcement sources told The Post.

Porter was caught after ID-theft victim Anthony Frair of The Bronx was denied food stamps because government records matched him to the airline job. A law-enforcement source confirmed that Frair, 40, has an arrest record. Public records show a man with his name and age was busted in Florida in 2008 on domestic-assault charges.

It’s unclear how long Porter used Frair’s identity, sources said. American Eagle hired him in March, and he worked from the airline’s Miami base, said company spokesman Tim Smith.

Smith and spokespersons for several federal agencies couldn’t explain how Porter cleared the security checks needed to become a flight attendant — or why the airline didn’t realize the ID he had stolen belonged to a criminal suspect.

Smith couldn’t say whether the airline even did a Google search, which would have uncovered Frair’s arrest in Florida.

Porter was born in Guyana, and records show he’s also a former Bronx resident.

He was arrested at Miami International Airport early yesterday just after he’d returned from a personal trip to London on an American Airlines flight, Smith said.

  1. Big Sis – doing her job – working for her pension and trying to be as competent as Obama

  2. Undocumented American.

  3. Everyone knows that in government the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing.

    Who doesn’t believe that such colossal failures will also be experienced with Obamacare? Only then it won’t simply be paperwork that will be screwed up – it will be our entire lives.

  4. Well we are going to FIRE every one of them stupid a$$ holes come November 2012!

    Hey states get rid of the electronic voting machines and go picture ID….NOW!

    btw….. I bet he is a PLANT! What better way to control and take down a flight then to have the flight attendant do it! Scary Keep your eyes, ears, and cameras ready in your neighbor hood and make sure you PROFILE because this CORRUPTED government we have will not!

  5. Don’t forget – the most heavily government regulated space in America is an airline passenger cabin.

    This was true on 9/10/01, and it remains true today.

    This is just another example of your government protecting you…

    .

  6. Seems like Jophan was doing a better job being Anthony than Anthony was. At least he had got a job and wasn’t living on food stamps.

  7. I don’t understand why he was being allowed to fly. The article says that he was hired in March (this year?). My daughter flew for Continental. She had to go through 6 1/2 months in training (in Houston) and did not take her first training flight until a week before graduation from the training center. Did the imposter pay for that trip to London? My daughter had to earn flight miles before she could travel (riding in the jump seat if no other seats were available) to Europe. And, AND, she had to provide her birth certificate before Continental would even let her go through training along with her graduation/high school records.

    Is American Airlines lowering their standards for FAs? Was he a product of an affirmative action hiring policy so he was allowed to by-pass the standard requirements? American Eagle is the comuter line for American Airlines so he should have been required to go through their academy which is six months long.

    I view this as more of a failure on the part of American Airlines than I do the DoHS. American Airlines should have used E-verify and they would have known that the SS# was stolen. Did they not do the standard criminal background check that Continental did on my daughter (they even knew about a speeding ticket she got when she was 17). This all seems like a major fail on the part of American Airlines.

  8. Did Anthony Frair ever report that the ID was stolen?

  9. He looks black in his photo…that is why no checks on the guy…now if he were white he never would have gotten hired no matter what.

  10. so, if the illegal immigrant was able to obtain a job using a person on food stamps’ identity, isn’t it logical to assume that if the person on food stamps himself applied for the job then he wouldn’t need to be in food stamps at all?

    It’s bad that the illegal immigrant was given a flight attendant’s job on a stolen identity, but it’s just as bad that the person who owns the identity is still on food stamps!

    If you had read the article you would have seen this sentence:

    Porter was caught after ID-theft victim Anthony Frair of The Bronx was denied food stamps because government records matched him to the airline job.

  12. He’s dark skinned so they can’t be checking up on him in the usual way.

    It’s only white Americans they need to fear.

    I’m sure the illegal alien in the White House will get right on this “abuse” of the undocumented worker only wanting to work to support his family, blah, blah, blah, blah.

  13. This is all about the failures of Affirmative Action. Like so many other businesses who are under extreme pressure and scrutiny from black lawyers in the Injustice Dept to hire more and more black people, the people in the Personnel Dept of American Airlines (most likely all black people) purposefully lowered the standards that they hold white people to, and waived the background checks out of fear that a past criminal record might arise which would preclude him from being hired. Happens all the time.

  14. You all seem to have missed the single most egregious event in this whole tale:

    The fraudster used his stolen ID to acquire a US passport for which you have to submit a birth certificate!

    ❛If you had read the article you would have seen this sentence:

    I had read the article and your quote doesn’t answer my question. Was the ID reported stolen before the guy was hired?

  16. A birth certificate is not required to obtain a passport.

  17. I won’t fly anywhere because I have a subcutaneous patch from a hernia repair that will show on the scanner, and will end up being groped by some TSA agent. Yet this SOB is allowed to become a flight attendant by using stolen ID. We have some things gone terribly wrong in this country.

  18. Granny, you need a birth certificate to get a Florida driver’s license as well. And it can’t be a hospital birth certificate either!

  19. I bet he voted in the last election too. . and not for McCain. . .welcome to Obama-nation!

    He is now going to charge authorities for using racial profiling to arrest him. . .

    While big Sis and TSA grope children and old people. . thugs like him get away with crimes. . . good job Obama!

  20. I had read the article and your quote doesn’t answer my question. Was the ID reported stolen before the guy was hired?

    What? He found out when he was denied food stamps! Geez.
