DHS, The Patriot Act & The Threat To Freedom
Recently, I just finished an article on Reason.com that I found very disturbing.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is required by statute to develop and implement a biometric entry-exit data system. To facilitate the implementation of a seamless biometric entry-exit system that uses facial recognition and to help prevent persons attempting to fraudulently use U.S. travel documents and identify criminals and known or suspected terrorists, DHS is proposing to amend the regulations to provide that all travelers, including U.S. citizens, may be required to be photographed upon entry and/or departure.
Security was to oversee & coordinate America’s defense. close to Against possible terrorist threats as well as to prevent future attacks.With nearly a employee’s it is one of the largest government agencies in America. Like most government agencies it’s aims seem to be expanding. Plans have been in the works since 2017 to implement this system & now it is being rolled out on mass.
The 15 airports already using facial recognition have had 15,000 flights and over 2 million passengers pass through the biometric exit system. Of those, over 7,000 passengers were detected as overstays.
The DHS, like most government agencies, it’s mission into areas it was never intended to be involved in. The solution of course is for We The People to limit the power of government & fight to protect our freedoms.
Because, Big Brother is watching us…
