Abstract

Airline passenger profiling raises important constitutional considerations that should not be dismissed simply because more security is needed at the nation's airports. Rejecting the notion that security is possible only at the expense of liberty and privacy, this article recommends an aviation security policy in which profiling plays an integral and lawful role.
