Homeland Security's Data Vacuum Cleaner In Action
An Investigation by the Identity Project
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has quietly perfected and begun to implement their scheme that will require Americans to seek and get permission from DHS in order to travel both domestically and abroad.
The results of an investigation by the Identity Project show that DHS is actively collecting information on what Americans read, with whom they associate, and the ethnicity of individual American travelers. DHS is also actively acquiring the travel records of Americans that document non-US travel, e.g., intra-European flights.
Almost one hundred pages of travel records were turned over by DHS to the Identity Project in response to Privacy Act requests. These documents – many heavily redacted – make clear that DHS is not being honest and forthright with the American public.
