Brain - Homeland Security wants airport face scans for US citizens
Key Highlights

US citizens, not just visa holders and visitors, should go through a mandatory facial recognition check when they enter or leave the country

He also contended that this was an unfair burden on people using their " constitutional right to travel, " and pointed to abuses of power, data breaches and potential bias as strong reasons to avoid expanding use of the technology

The ACLU told Engadget that it's "calling on Congress" to put a stop to widened facial recognition, but can't say if it'll take further action as the full proposal isn't available
