Jeh C. Johnson, Homeland Security Secretary, recently said that the 'Secure Our Border First Act of 2015' is "unworkable extreme, and impossible to achieve". Also included in the bill is a provision to remove the 'Carrizo Cane' in the Rio Grande, which the bill says "Provides Concealment To Potential Terrorists."

Other items of interest in the bill (H.R. 399) include a 'cocaine seizure effectiveness rate' section, a 'Biometric Exit Data System' and establishment of a 'Border Security Verification Commission.'

The 'Biometric Exit Data System' provision of H.R.399 involves taking biometrics from vehicle and pedestrian traffic and would "allow matching against, other Federal databases that store biometrics of known or suspected terrorists." It would also "require that the biometric data that is obtained for a person upon entry to the United States is matched against the biometric data of such person when such person exits the United States."

Shockingly, Section 19 of the bill states "There is authorized to be appropriated for each of fiscal years 2016 through 2025 $1,000,000,000 to carry out this Act and the amendments made by this Act." That's a heck of a lot of money.


The bill mandates a pilot program be established and that Congress report "The effects of such pilot program on legitimate travel and trade" and "The effects of such pilot program on wait times, including processing times, for such non-pedestrian traffic." The pilot program will involve taking biometrics from vehicle and pedestrian traffic and includes a section on data matching: "The biometric exit data system established under this section shall require that the biometric data that is obtained for a person upon entry to the United States is matched against the biometric data of such person when such person exits the United States." "Such pilot program may include a consideration of more than one biometric mode" and shall measure "Its effectiveness in combating terrorism."

The Secretary of Homeland Security shall 'establish a biometric exit data system', it says. The government will also take into "consideration of how other countries have implemented a biometric exit data system" and "establish a biometric exit data system at the 15 United States airports that support the highest volume of international air travel, as determined by available Federal flight data."

It also shall "be interoperable with, and allow matching against, other Federal databases that store biometrics of known or suspected terrorists."

Of course it is written in extremely convoluted legalese, which is difficult to decipher ther actual meaning. Note that Section 13 (f) (1) states "IN GENERAL.—The biometric exit data system established under this section shall include a requirement for the collection of biometric exit data for all categories of individuals who are required to provide biometric entry data." (2) EXCEPTION.—This section shall not apply in the case of a citizen of the United States. (g) COLLECTION OF DATA.—The Secretary of Homeland Security may not require any non-Federal person to collect biometric data pursuant to the biometric exit data system established under this section, except through a contractual agreement. (h) MULTI-MODAL COLLECTION.—In carrying out subsections (a)(1) and (b), the Secretary of Homeland Security shall make every effort to collect biometric data using additional modes of biometric technology.


Here is an excerpt from SEC. 13. BIOMETRIC EXIT DATA SYSTEM, which begins on page 56 of the bill, in PDF form here.

(A) the 15 United States airports that support the highest volume of international air travel, as determined by available Federal flight data;
(B) the 15 United States seaports that support the highest volume of international sea travel, as determined by available Federal travel data; and
(C) the 15 United States land ports of entry that support the highest volume of pedestrian crossings, as determined by available Federal border crossing data.
(b) IMPLEMENTATION.—
(1) PILOT PROGRAM AT LAND PORTS OF ENTRY FOR NON-PEDESTRIAN OUTBOUND TRAFFIC.—Not later than one year after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in collaboration with industry stakeholders, shall establish a six-month pilot program to test the biometric exit data system referred to in subsection (a)(2) on non-pedestrian outbound traffic at not fewer than three land ports of entry with significant cross-border traffic, including at not fewer than two land ports of entry on the southern border and at least one land port of entry on the northern border. Such pilot program may include a consideration of more than one biometric mode, and shall be implemented to determine the following:

(A) How a nationwide implementation of such biometric exit data system at land ports of entry shall be carried out.
(B) The infrastructure required to carry out subparagraph (A).
(C) The effects of such pilot program on legitimate travel and trade.
(D) The effects of such pilot program on wait times, including processing times, for such non-pedestrian traffic.

(2) AT LAND PORTS OF ENTRY FOR NON-PEDESTRIAN OUTBOUND TRAFFIC.—
(A) IN GENERAL.—Not later than five years after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall expand the biometric exit data system referred to in subsection (a)(2) to all land ports of entry, and such system shall apply only in the case of non-pedestrian outbound traffic.
(B) EXTENSION.—The Secretary of Homeland Security may extend by two years the initial date specified in subparagraph (A), and may renew such extension for a single additional two-year period, if the Secretary certifies to the appropriate congressional committees that the 15 land ports of entry that support the highest volume of passenger vehicles, as determined by available Federal data, do not have the physical infrastructure or characteristics to install the systems necessary to implement a biometric exit data system.


(3) AT AIR AND SEA PORTS OF ENTRY.—Not later than five years after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall expand the biometric exit data system referred to in subsection (a)(2) to all air and sea ports of entry.
(4) AT LAND PORTS OF ENTRY FOR PEDESTRIANS.—Not later than five years after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall expand the biometric exit data system referred to in subsection (a)(2) to all land ports of entry, and such system shall apply only in the case of pedestrians.

(c) EFFECTS ON AIR, SEA, AND LAND TRANSPORTATION.—The Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with appropriate private sector stakeholders, shall ensure that the collection of biometric data under this section causes the least possible disruption to the movement of people or cargo in air, sea, or land transportation.

(e) DATA-MATCHING.—The biometric exit data system established under this section shall—
(1) require that the biometric data that is obtained for a person upon entry to the United States is matched against the biometric data of such person when such person exits the United States;
(2) leverage the infrastructure and databases of the current entry system established pursuant to section 7208 of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (8 U.S.C. 1365b) for the purpose described in paragraph (1); and
(3) be interoperable with, and allow matching against, other Federal databases that store biometrics of known or suspected terrorists.
(f) SCOPE.—
(1) IN GENERAL.—The biometric exit data system established under this section shall include a requirement for the collection of biometric exit data for all categories of individuals who are required to provide biometric entry data.
(2) EXCEPTION.—This section shall not apply in the case of a citizen of the United States.

  • In October, California launched its' own Pilot Program To Charge Drivers By The Mile. The author admits that the law will "burden families." Carpool lanes in Southern California, which were paid for years ago by taxpayers, are now being turned into toll roads to fleece the people. Orange County, CA alone was issuing 15,000 photo citations PER DAY after motorists were confused about the new system.
