American Federation of Government Employees President J. David Cox said airport security workers need to be protected by armed officers after a machete-wielding man attacked two TSA workers at New Orleans Louis Armstrong International Airport on March 20.

“For years, AFGE has advocated for a new law enforcement unit within TSA, specially trained and armed to respond to such attacks, and for other safety measures at screening checkpoints,” Cox said in a statement dated March 21.
