“Recently, we’ve had shootings here, somebody killed here, at LAX. There have been in the past bombing attempts, past terrorist bombing attempts,” Rubin said. “I want, and I intend, to have police resources to be used in those kinds of matters. Not this.”

The stowaway originally arrived at LAX from San Jose.
