    You are wrong. This is not discrimination on the basis of national origin, but on the basis of citizenship, which is not unlawful. National origin discrimination would be a rule that requires any person born in a particular nation, say Nigeria, to be screened differently, even if such person were not at present a Nigerian citizen.

    So looking at the TSA website, I find this:

    “Because effective aviation security must begin beyond our borders, and as a result of extraordinary cooperation from our global aviation partners, TSA is mandating that every individual flying into the U.S. from anywhere in the world traveling from or through nations that are state sponsors of terrorism or other countries of interest will be required to go through enhanced screening.”

    So let’s say I am traveling from Syria to the US via Amsterdam, and I happen to book that trip in two parts, on two PNRs, with two different airlines. How’s the Amsterdam screener supposed to know where I came from?
