The Florida triple-amputee veteran who garnered more than $20 million online to help build a wall along the southern US border was filmed being thoroughly searched by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents in Tuscon, Arizona.

A concerned fellow traveler filmed Purple Heart recipient Brian Kolfage, 37, being subjected to an ‘invasive TSA pat down’ on Saturday morning at Tuscon International Airport, following a ‘We Build The Wall’ rally in Sahuarita, which took place on Friday.

‘They groped and searched under his hips and buttocks, his groin and his half arm searching for what?’ YouTube user ‘james hoft’ wrote in the caption with the video, uploaded on Saturday.

‘Brian is an Afghanistan War veteran. They also swabbed his prosthetic legs and wheelchair for explosives.’

The video shows the TSA agent first explaining to Kolfage the areas where he will be searched, and Kolfage then nodding, apparently to show his understanding.

The agent asks Kolfage to remove his hat, and swabs the inside of it, along the portion that rests against the front of his forehead.

From there, he asks Kolfage to extend his arms and proceeds to pat down his left arm, the collar area around the back of his neck, and then his right arm.

‘Lean forward just a bit,’ the agent says to Kolfage, who complies as the agent pats down his back.
