Biometric System May be Used to Track Incoming Visa Holders

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is in preparations to enact a new system that will effectively trace all incoming immigrants into the United States. The design of the system will call upon use of biometrics to utilize technologies that recognize people based on their physical traits and behaviors. The use of this system has been a long time coming, as the Homeland Security department has been looking for a method of employment such as this since the 9/11 attacks. In effect, the biometric-based system will allow government officials to better track down immigrants in the U.S. whose visas have expired.

The biometric system which will likely be adopted by DHS is hoped to help prevent against future terrorist attacks. According to statements released by U.S. Representative C. Miller, more than 35 convicted terrorists were residing in the U.S. on an expired visa. As such, it is easy to understand where the concern is coming from; however, introducing a system such as this could also be seen as invasive and unnecessary. Thirty-six immigrant terrorists in no way account for the entire population of immigrants who reside in the country, but under the biometric system all will be susceptible to the biometric read on an immigrant's physical and behavioral traits. Officials plan to keep closer tabs on immigrants who show a criminal record, but all will be tracked using the biometric system regardless.
