Horizon Air — the regional airline that is part of Alaska Air Group, carrying passengers on shorter flights throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond — is cutting its flight schedule this summer because of a severe shortage of pilots for its Q400 turboprop planes.

The shortage became a crisis this past month when Horizon was forced to cancel more than 318 flights because it didn’t have enough pilots to fly all its planes.

To do the jobs Americans just won’t do, like being pilots, we must let in a few million more illegal aliens to keep flights from rotting in the airfields. The only alternative would be to pay American workers more, but that’s just un-American.

It’s probably the fault of Trump’s Muslim ban keeping America from getting enough Syrian refugees in here to fly airliners.
