Trump's Controversial Immigrant Biometric Data Collection Efforts


New York, NY -- (SBWire) -- 09/22/2021 --Biometrics is an area that offers opportunities for a wealth of progress and evolution. But it can also have its challenges. During the Trump era of presidency, a system was proposed that would collect the biometric data of immigrants, no matter what their age. The proposal also sought to include anyone who was connected to an immigrant, including someone who was acting as a sponsor, who was a beneficiary or associated with that person. This would have spread a net very wide as all of these people would, under the Trump proposal, have been required to present themselves for gathering of biometric data no matter what their age or individual circumstances. Earlier this year the Biden administration withdrew the proposal, indicating it was not consistent with the approach that the current president sought to take in terms of immigration. And so, for now, immigrants to the US are under no obligation to hand over all their biometric details.
