Dhs Follows ‘boston Legal’ Episode With Redress Inquiry Program

BALTIMORE, January 17, 2007 — One day after a Boston Legal (ABC) episode took on the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) No-Fly List administration process, the agency announced today it will launch the DHS Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (DHS TRIP), an easy to use, single point of inquiry for travel-related issues.

DHS TRIP was developed to provide a central gateway to address watch list misidentification issues, situations where individuals believe they have faced screening problems at immigration points of entry, or have been unfairly or incorrectly delayed, denied boarding or identified for additional screening at our nation’s transportation hubs.

“A year ago today, Secretary Rice and I pledged to take significant steps to renew the United States’ reputation as a welcoming nation to legitimate travelers while still securing our country from those who want to do us harm,” said Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff. “DHS TRIP will offer the legitimate traveler a clearly-defined process through which to report travel-related discrepancies thus improving the traveler experience overall. Ensuring that personal information is accurate and complete allows us to focus fewer resources on legitimate travelers and more resources on national security and law enforcement issues.”

Coincidently, the DHS announcement followed Monday night’s Boston Legal episode where character Denny Crane was dismayed to learn his name is on the federal No-Fly List. Crane enlisted character Alan Shore’s help in taking on Homeland Security and the arduous process of clearing his name from the list.
