BioMetric Update 
May 10, 2013
Reports are emerging today regarding the possibility of a national biometric database of U.S. adults, following references to a “photo tool” administered by the Department of Homeland Security in immigration reform measures currently in front of the U.S. Senate.
According to a report in Wired published this morning , buried in the legislation – called Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act  – is “language mandating the creation of an innocuously-named ‘photo tool,’ a massive federal database administered by the Department of Homeland Security and containing names, ages, Social Security numbers and photographs of everyone in the country with a driver’s license of other state-issued photo ID.”
Under the new system, employers would have to cross-reference new hires in the database to ensure they really are who they claim to be.
