An 8-week-old baby is being monitored by the Department of Homeland Security due to the child’s father’s actions on January 6.
Former federal air marshal Sonya Hightower-LaBosco told former Fox News host Glenn Beck that the youngest person the the terrorist watch list is isn’t even old enough to sit up by themselves.
Beck and Hightower-LaBosco discussed how federal Air Marshals have had their wings clipped after being reassigned to work on the Southern border, or investigate people connected to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
On a recent episode of his eponymous show, Beck asked the Air Marshal’s National Council Executive Director where the Air Marshals were if not posted on U.S. flights.
DHS allegedly assigned air marshals to make UBER EATS orders at the border and SPY on Americans connected to Jan. 6 rather than protect flights.

“They’re either on the border or they’re following individuals that were in the national capital region around January 6, 2021,” Hightower-LaBosco explained.
She said it was a “shocking debacle” that Air Marshals are not performing duties that are “anywhere close” to the specialized training they have to “thwart hijackings” in the air.
“We’re down on the border doing non-law-enforcement duties: handing out water, driving people to the hospital, [and] waiting for them to get stitches to bring them back to the Border Patrol facilities,” the Executive Director detailed.
When Beck asked if the Air Marshals had essentially become “candy stripe girls,” she agreed.
The former Air Marshal pointed out that under the direction of United States Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, they were also picking up food through Uber Eats.
Despite these revelations, the most stunning was that the Air Marshals that are still on planes aren’t there to monitor domestic flights for potential terrorist attacks, like they did after 9/11, but to monitor those connected to the Capitol riot.
You are being gaslit by the Biden administration about more than just the economy. If you dare to show concern over the border crisis, you are VILIFIED. Why? Because they don’t want you to know about the RAMPANT sexual assaults, homicides, and kidnappings happening under Biden. pic.twitter.com/2ySATdb4BX

Under their recent “Quiet Skies” special missions, Air Marshals are tracking an eight-week-old infant, who “was not even conceived” during the events of January 6, 2021.
According to The Blaze, Hightower-LaBosco returned to Beck’s program the next day to discuss how the Air Marshals were monitoring the child.
“This 8-week-old baby is on the terrorist watch list. And it’s not just one Air Marshal that will be assigned. It’s a minimum of three,” she explained “You will have three air marshals following this 8-week-old baby.”
Hightower-LaBosco said that it didn’t matter that the father, who was reportedly charged with entering the Capitol, wasn’t traveling with the child when his fiance flew with the baby to see family in Puerto Rico as Air Marshals tracked them.
“No matter if the baby travels with the grandparents. If the baby just travels with cousins. It doesn’t matter,” the former Air Marshall elaborated. “Once the baby is on the list, by their name, the baby is going to stay on that list.”
Prior to the Puerto Rico trip, Hightower-LaBosco had been unaware that the infant was on the watch list.
“I knew that we had been following a 6-year-old boy and a 9-year-old child. I knew that. That was the all-time low for the information we received,” she told Beck.
“But when we received the information on the 8-week-old baby, I mean, how low can you go?”
Shockingly, the littlest member of the terrorist watch list isn’t the only baby the U.S. Government has ever tracked.
A seven-month-old from California was flagged as a “known or suspected terrorist” sometime in 2012, when Transportation Security Administration officials saw that his boarding pass had an “SSSS” designation.
As the child and his mother were going though security, they patted the baby down, put him through “chemical testing,” and examined his diapers.
The infant, who was only identified by Baby Doe, eventually became part of class-action lawsuit filed by Michigan branch of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) four years later.
The lawsuit alleged that Baby Doe and others were experienced “an injustice of historic proportions” when they were secretly added to the government’s Terrorist Screening Database following the events of 9/11.
“Through extra-judicial and secret means,” the lawsuit stated according to The Intercept.
“The federal government is ensnaring individuals into an invisible web of consequences that are imposed indefinitely and without recourse as a result of the shockingly large federal watchlists that now include hundreds of thousands of individuals.”
Three years later, a federal judge found that the watch list, which was conceived by the by the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center and had 1.2 million people on it at the time, was a violation of the rights of Muslims.
“The vagueness of the standard for inclusion in the TSDB (Terrorist Screening Database), coupled with the lack of any meaningful restraint on what constitutes grounds for placement on the Watchlist,” began Judge Anthony Trenga of U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia in his 32-page ruling.
“Constitutes, in essence, the absence of any ascertainable standard for inclusion and exclusion, which is precisely what offends the Due Process Clause.”
Trenga’s decision was hailed by CAIR in a statement that September. “The judge’s ruling was a historic victory on behalf of all Americans and one of the most significant victories for the American Muslim community,” said Lena Masri, CAIR’s National Litigation Director.
“The list violates the most basic due process rights of Americans because they’re being added to a watch list without any type of process or opportunity to contest their status.”
