Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free

Airport-type “security” screening to visit the Statue of Liberty.

(Look at the URL. Methinks “journalists” in New York have no idea what “to the hilt” means).

Ticket holders are screened at a checkpoint, manned by Park Police, before boarding a ferry for the short trip to Liberty and nearby Ellis Islands. The screening includes magnetometers and X-ray machines. A second check is conducted once visitors are on the islands.


[A visitor] was surprised by the rigorous screening, much like an airport, with screeners asking visitors to take off their belts and shoes.

This is freedom?

Oh the irony.
