The US Department of Homeland Security is set to kickstart a controversial new pilot to scan the fingerprints of travellers departing the United States.

By Brett Winterford~ IT News

From June, US Customs and Border Patrol will take a fingerprint scan of international travellers exiting the United States from Detroit, while the US Transport Security Administration will take fingerprint scans of international travellers exiting the United States from Atlanta.

Biometric technology such as fingerprint scans has been used by US Customs and Border Patrol for several years to gain a biometric record of non-US citizens entering the United States.

But under the Bush Administration, a plan was formulated to also scan outgoing passengers.

Michael Hardin, a senior policy analyst with the US-Visit Program at the United States Department of Homeland Security told a Biometrics Institute conference today that the DHS will use the data from the trial to “inform us as to where to take [exit screening] next.”

“We are trying to ensure we know more about who came and who left,” he said. “We have a large population of illegal immigrants in the United States - we want to make sure the person getting on the plane really is the person the records show to be leaving.”


The original exit scanning legislation planned by the Bush administration stipulated that airlines would be responsible for conducting the exit fingerprints.

But after much protest, Hardin said the new Obama administration re-considered this legislation two weeks ago and is “not as sold that private sector should be agency for exit fingerprints.”

“The new administration feels that perhaps it is more appropriate that Government should take that role.” more

Yea the prison country ...... more people in jail here than anywhere else on earth, of course they want to make sure you are tracked and printed before you leave the prison. Can't have someone escape to semi-freedom somewhere else.

Their whole premise is outright bull shit THEY DON'T HAVE MY PRINTS SO HOW THE FUCK CAN THEY KNOW IF IM WHO I SAY I AM ?!!?! THATS RIGHT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BULL SHIT THEY JUST GAVE YOU!! I have a drivers license and a PASSPORT is that not good enough NOW?? Do they have all the "terrorists" fingerprints somehow now?? NO THEY DON"T, this isn't about terrorism its about keeping the slave in line and training them to fingerprint at every point the psycho control freaks setup!! Its also about making sure the freemen and women who have spoken out and get arrested and PUT ON THE NO FLY AND NO GUN LIST SO YOU CAN'T TRAVEL!!

Just let em set it up America your going to get whats coming to you for sure, if you think Stalin was bad ... o wait I'm may be speaking to Americans who don't even know who Stalin is beyond a few sentences... Just wait Americans just watch and see what your complacency and outright retardedness is going to buy you.

Are humans really this dumb ?? I'm asking how does the public not see the blatant lies they are fed??
