Trump administration plans to introduce the new regulation within the next year. These scanning faces of peoples will accommodate travelers and also the US citizens will be photographed while entering and leaving the country. This is done for security purpose according to the report we got. The introduced regulation to be issued in July as per the plan by the Homeland Security Department, being a part of a broader system to track travelers as they enter and exit the United States.
Okay now, I have a question for you all. Do you think scanning the faces of the citizens is good? Please comment down. In my view, it is the best way of giving security to the citizens of any nation.
Trump administration’s administrative program explained The face scan will help combat fraudulent use of U.S. travel documents and support the identification of criminals and suspected terrorists. The people will have 30 to 60 days to comment on proposed US regulations. This will later be reviewed and responded to by the federal agency.
In the following plan, the Trump administration also mentions the plan to issue separate fast track regulations this month. This will allow the entry-exit project to move beyond a pilot status.
The pilot programs are already being attended by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, they collect photographs and fingerprints from foreign travelers.
The idea has brought opposition from privacy advocates, “Travelers, including U.S. citizens, should not have to submit to invasive biometric scans simply as a condition of exercising their democratic right to travel.” – Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst with the American Civil Liberties Union exposed his disagreement in a written statement on Monday.
An internal audit discovered technical and operational issues during a pilot program at 9 US airports in 2018. This proposed doubts about DHS meeting a self-imposed deadline to confirm all foreign departures at the top 20 U.S. airports by the fiscal year 2021. The non-partisan Pew Research Center estimated 45 percent of newcomers in the United States without any legal status accessed on a valid visa but did not depart when it expired.
