The wiki link says the US started biometrics in 2005 and HART was started in 2017, Senator's Lee and Markey are trying to stop the facial recognition being tried now at airports but this is too big a juggernaut to stop, maybe slow it down but they're not going to stop it.
Pennsylvania is pushing hard for the Real ID drivers license's and so far it's optional. My wife and I don't plan on flying or going on or into federal property so we're going to wait as long as we can. Did you see what hoops you have to jump through in order to prove you are you? Reminds me of Lily Tomlin's operator Ernestine; "Hello, have I reached the party to whom I am speaking?"

Also makes me wonder if HART is the reason 2016 was the last year for Person of Interest.

Run length 2:09, showing the computer having problems with facial recognition...

Art imitating life or life imitating art??
