BREANNA MORELLO: The DHS, CBP, and TSA Are Misleading Americans About Their Biometric Facial Recognition Program

The DHS, CBP, and TSA are misleading Americans about their biometric facial recognition program.

According to research by Breanna Morello, the DHS, CBP and TSA are misleading the American people about their biometrics facial recognition program. My research is below for reference. Both CBP and TSA have directly confirmed this story with me (in writing).

TSA tells Americans it erases their facial recognition biometric photos after they’re taken by a TSA officer. This is misleading because these images are forwarded to DHS before they are erased. TSA tells me they do this, ” In a limited testing environment, data is provided to DHS Science and Technology Directorate for evaluation of the effectiveness of the technology.” They did not provide me with a number.

On CBP website, they claim their facial recognition biometric photos of “any” traveler are erased, but non U.S. citizens are having their biometrics stored for 75 years. CBP confirmed this (off-the-record) and I found it in a 2018 document which is cited below.

These agencies have failed to keep up with the audits of private companies they’re working with as well. So this biometric data is vulnerable.

The American people can reject these photos. It’s within their rights to decline the images at the airport. So far, CBP has taken over 500 million images of travelers.

TSA is refusing to hand over this information regarding this program, so I am now suing them over it. CBP and DHS will be next because they declined my FOIA within the first 5 hours of it being sent. They claimed I didn’t provide them with enough details. I will re-submit it one more time and if they do not respond within 20 days, I will file another lawsuit.

Breanna Morello discussed the DHS’s Facial Biometric Database at Airports this week with Stephen Crowder.

Breanna Morello will discuss all this on the Joe Hoft Show this week.
