Rogers on CBP’s Proposed Rulemaking for Biometric Entry/Exit System
WASHINGTON – Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), House Homeland Security Committee ranking member, today applauded the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s proposed rulemaking to update the biometric entry and exit system established to protect our nation’s borders.
“I applaud the proposal of this rule. This biometric identity verification was a recommendation from the 9/11 Commission Report and helps CBP improve security at our ports of entry, facilitate travel, and better enforce existing immigration laws. This technology has a track record of success at our border crossings and is an important tool for DHS. The proposed rule is a step in the right direction.”
