TSA Plans to Use Face Recognition to Track Americans Through Airports

[excerpted] The “PreCheck” program is billed as a convenient service to allow U.S. travelers to “speed through security” at airports. However, the latest proposal released by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reveals the Department of Homeland Security’s greater underlying plan to collect face images and iris scans on a nationwide scale. DHS’s programs will become a massive violation of privacy that could serve as a gateway to the collection of biometric data to identify and track every traveler at every airport and border crossing in the country.

Currently TSA collects fingerprints as part of its application process for people who want to apply for PreCheck...But this summer, TSA ran a pilot program at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and at Denver International Airport that used those prints and a contactless fingerprint reader to verify the identity of PreCheck-approved travelers at security checkpoints at both airports*. Now TSA wants to roll out this program to airports across the country and expand it to encompass face recognition, iris scans, and other biometrics as well.

While this latest plan is limited to the more than 5-million Americans who have chosen to apply for PreCheck, it appears to be part of a broader push within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to expand its collection and use of biometrics throughout its sub-agencies.

Congress seems poised to provide both TSA and CBP with the statutory authority to support these plans. As we noted in earlier blog posts, the “Building America’s Trust” Act would require the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to collect biometric information from all people who exit the U.S., including U.S. and foreign citizens. And the TSA Modernization Act, introduced earlier this fall, includes a provision that would allow the agencies to deploy “biometric technology at checkpoints, screening lanes, bag drop and boarding areas, and other areas where such deployment would enhance security and facilitate passenger movement.” The Senate Commerce Committee approved the TSA bill in October.

These agencies aren’t just collecting biometrics for their own use; they are also sharing them with other agencies like the FBI and with “private partners” to be used in ways that should concern travelers. For example, TSA’s PreCheck program has already expanded outside the airport context. The vendor for PreCheck, a company called Idemia (formerly MorphoTrust), now offers expedited entry for PreCheck-approved travelers at concerts and stadiums across the country.

We cannot overstate how big a change this will be in how the federal government regulates and tracks our movements or the huge impact this will have on privacy and on our constitutional “right to travel” and right to anonymous association with others.

All Americans should be concerned about these proposals because the data collected—your fingerprint, the image of your face, and the scan of your iris—will be stored in FBI and DHS databases and will be searched again and again for immigration, law enforcement, and intelligence checks, including checks against latent prints associated with unsolved crimes.

*excerpts from TSA proposal document: "In June and July 2017, TSA launched a proof of concept initiative at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Denver International Airport to determine whether fingerprints from TSA Pre✓® Application Program applicants, who volunteered to participate in the proof of concept, could be used for identity verification at airport security checkpoints. TSA is using the operational throughput information from this proof of concept to determine how to implement optimally the use of biometrics collected during enrollment (fingerprints, iris, and/or facial image) for identity verification at airport checkpoints. TSA intends to continue to expand on the use of biometrics for identity verification at the time of travel.

TSA is seeking a revision to the currently approved request to allow for the collection of additional biometrics, particularly facial images but may include other biometrics such as iris, from TSA Pre✓® Application Program applicants. Currently, TSA collects fingerprints from these applicants, which are used for, among other things, criminal history records checks. The regular collection of biometrics, such as facial images, will provide TSA with the ability to use those biometrics for identity verification at TSA checkpoints, potentially eliminating the need to show identity documents and improving both security and the customer experience."

Totalitarian control. There is absolutely no other purpose to construct such a system. The "TSA"? What is that anyway - oh that's right, they only came into existence as a result of what was probably the greatest staged-crisis-event in the history of the United States, namely 9/11. Birthed just about nine weeks after the fact:

"The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that has authority over the security of the traveling public in the United States. It was created as a response to the September 11, 2001 attacks...The TSA was created as part of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, sponsored by Don Young in the United States House of Representatives[1] and Ernest Hollings in the Senate,[2][3] passed by the 107th U.S. Congress, and signed into law by President George W. Bush on November 19, 2001." - wiki  [11/19 - 9/11]

Classic ordo-ab-chao as there is. Note sixth paragraph in excerpted article linked above the bolded words "regulate" and "track". TSA created by 9/11, for a purpose. That is the exact purpose. Totalitarian i.e. absolute control over all movement in the beast-kingdom. That system, never before possible, is truly now on the very threshold of becoming functional. Anywhere a person goes instantly 'facial recognition' identified. The 'regulating' comes after that - that's the whole purpose actually. Know all about it.
That system is looking like this [Note: beware - i.e. block - the multiple eye-of-horus hexes in this video]:
