Customs And Border Protection Seeks Biometric ID For All Major U.S. Airports by 2022

Recommended Posts

Over the past several months I’ve been covering the rapid acceleration toward mandatory biometric identification at U.S. airports.

At the core of this increased push is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection mandate 15 years in the making to integrate government databases for ID verification. As we’ve seen with airlines such as JetBlue, private companies will be merged into the government system in order to speed up biometric processing.

Despite Customs and Border Protection admitting to ongoing privacy concerns over data retention (currently planned for a 2-week maximum), an article in The Business of Federal Technology highlights that a rapid expansion of biometric airport security is imminent.

Until now, biometric ID has been used or tested at 5 international airports. Although there was a clear assumption of a wider roll-out, it was unclear what the timetable was for implementation and how pervasive the program would become. Apparently, if all goes well for CBP, it will be in ALL U.S. airports within just 4 years, according to statements given to senators by Commissioner Kevin McAleenan!

This is actually worthy news.. this will more than likely happen,. maybe not by 2022. 

I remember around 2002 2003 when ron paul  was trying to bring attention to *at that time, the proposed real ID Act, to the u.s. citizens..  in typical .gov status quo fashion he was smeared for it.

Now the real id act  has been established and slowly has been implemented since 2008(phase 1).   Here it is, starting January 2018 phase 4 comes into play and people still have no clue.  so yeah biometric ID (less intrusive then RFID chips) .  Is definitely going to happen.

A lot can happen in 4 years... I think whatever comes will tie it all together!

btw, the Wall is not to keep immigrants out. It is to keep Americans IN.

It was Toronto, the worst airport in the world, and I have been though quite a few, but I digress!

you should be careful too.

....Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me...:club:

 

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me
