face scans: They have been required by law since 2004 to submit to biometric identity scans but to date have only had their fingerprints and photos collected prior to entry, according to Toronto Star. Now, DHS says it's finally ready to implement face scans on departure aimed mainly at better tracking visa overstays but also at tightening security. The Department of Homeland Security says it's the only way to successfully expand a program that tracks non-immigrant foreigners. It says it won't keep the face scans of U.S. citizens, but privacy advocates are skeptical and say Homeland Security is overstepping its authority. DHS heard that and decided to scan everyone. Congress authorized scans of foreign nationals. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
