Can DHS Push Harder on Biometrics?

President Donald Trump’s Jan. 27 executive order restricting citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the U.S. for three months also pressures the Department of Homeland Security to develop its biometric entry/exit system in double-time.

DHS said in a Jan. 29 statement that for “the next 90 days, nearly all travelers, except U.S. citizens, traveling on passports from Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Iran, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen will be temporarily suspended from entry to the United States.”
