Senators urge homeland security to release mandated report on its use of biometrics
from Next Gov
A pair of senators are pressing the Homeland Security Department to release a mandated report on its use of biometric identification technology — and a detailed explanation as to why that information is nearly a month overdue, according to a letter published recently. “American travelers deserve to fully understand exactly who has access to their biometric data, how long their data will be held, how their information will be safeguarded, and how they can opt out of this data collection altogether,” Sens. Ed Markey, a democrat from Massachusetts, and Mike Lee, a republican from Utah, penned to Homeland Security’s Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan.
