So if some average run-of-the-mill immigrant can access a plane that easily then how hard would it be for a terrorist?

Getting access to a plane is much much much easier than carrying out a terrorist plot on a plane. FA's still go through the same security screenings that passengers had to go through, all of their bags are scanned, they are x-rayed, etc. Also, it would be nearly impossible for him, or any immigrant/terrorist to get a hold of the airplane as a pilot. They are screened more than anyone else at most airports, the gate agents know who the pilots are for each flight (most know each other personally), and any other person would be found just like that.

We should give amnesty to illegal immigrants who are overly creative.
