The Terminal

Your CBP inspection's in three days.
The FBI and Homeland Security
will tour the airport,

spend two hours observing these offices
before your interview process begins.

How much does Navorski make?
How much does he make?
How much are they paying him?

They're paying him cash under the table.
I know that. How much?
$19 an hour.
Do you know that's more than I make?

That's New York City construction.
One of my own men
came up to me the other day.

Asked me
if I wanted to join the big pool.

Look at him.
Place a bet on when Navorski's
going to leave this airport.

Have you heard about this?
I have January 3rd.
Bring him in.
Jake, he has no nationality.
OK? No country.

He's a national security risk, according
to my interpretation of Section 2.12.

I want you to put him in a detention
center and run a clearance on him.

That's all I want.
What about a federal prison?
What about another airport?
Hello? Hello?
We're detaining so many people,
there's no room anywhere.

- Did you try the FBI?
- I tried everybody. Nobody'll take him.

You want me to bring him back
to the terminal?

No. From now on, Navorski lives here.
The people who are coming here today
will be observing me, inspecting me.
