FOR INTERNATIONAL TRAVELERS
WASHINGTON— U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced today the deployment of facial recognition biometric technology at one Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint at John F. Kennedy International Airport for 30 days. As part of this technical demonstration, CBP is partnering with TSA to utilize international travelers’ photographs taken at TSA’s Terminal 7 international checkpoint to compare against travel document photographs.
The Office of Congressional Affairs serves as the single point of contact within CBP for all communications between CBP and Congress. OCA is committed to addressing any question or concern Members of Congress or their staffs may have related to CBP’s complex mission.
