Six major US airports now scan Americans’ faces when they leave country

To expand a 2004 biometric-tracking law meant to target foreigners the Department of Homeland Security has been pushing a plan that if enacted would require all Americans submit to a facial-recognition scan when departing the country. This will happen on the major airports of the US beginning at Boston, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta, New York City, and Washington DC.

In a recent privacy assessment, DHS noted that the "only way for an individual to ensure he or she is not subject to collection of biometric information when traveling internationally is to refrain from traveling."

In addition there is no economic altenative: "US Citizens are not exempted from this process for two reasons: first, it is not feasible to require airlines to have two separate boarding processes for US citizens and non-US citizens, and second, to ensure US citizen travelers are the true bearer of the passport they are presenting for travel."

But this is not true as we see when we are entering the US, there's a line for US citizens and green-card holders, and there's everyone else.

Since last summer at Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport, the busiest airport in the world, they are busy in testing biometric scans for leaving passengers.
