American airports are now scanning and storing the faces of travelers

According to Associated Publishers, who announced the plan on Wednesday, the scanning pilot plans on the face are now moving forward into six American airports- Boston, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta, New York City and Washington DC. And the airport has increased for the next year

In the current privacy assessment, DHS has written that “The path of specialization to safeguard someone is not collection of biometric data while traveling internationally, that is to stay away from the journey.”

In recent days, face recognition has become more popular in federal and local law enforcement: a 2016 George Town research found that part of adult Americans is already in such a biometric database.

“Americans believe that when they fly overseas, their goods are being investigated,” said Harrison Rudolph, a judicial partner of George Town. “People do not expect their face to be scanned, it is an extension of a program that was never allowed to American citizens.”

In charge of the system, customs and border security officer John Wagner said that the Bureau will remove such scans within 14 days. But he also said that the Bureau can keep a long scan so that it goes through “review and approval of fair confidentiality”.

As he wrote:

American citizens are not left with this method for two reasons: First of all, it does not need to have two separate boarding rules for American citizens and non-U.S. Citizens, and secondly, to ensure that American citizens travel to True carriers are passports they are showing for travel

If the image captured on Boarding is equal to the American citizen’s passport, the image is removed after a short period of time.

In essence, document control for American residents has been replaced by an old process that is done by a machine staff or CBP officers in a automated process. It is important to see that CBP is committed to privacy and intervened in our privacy office at every stage in this process to add biometrics to the deviation process from the United States.

A Georgetown law teacher, Alvaro Bedoya, who led the 2016 study said that there is no water in the case of DHS.
