CLASP Comments in Opposition to Proposed Rulemaking: Collection and Use of Biometrics by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

The Trump Administration published Proposed Rules in the Federal Register on September 11, 2020. Taken together, the proposed rules would radically change and infringe upon the privacy of immigrants and their U.S. citizen family members, subjecting them to unnecessary surveillance that will lead to further discrimination of immigrants. CLASP firmly opposes the proposed rules in their entirety and submitted these comments on October 13, 2020 calling on USCIS in DHS to withdraw them.
