And now, the TSA isn’t just groping hapless American passengers at their checkpoints: they’re using facial recognition technology and artificial intelligence to identify you and decide whether you’re too much of a “risk” to “allow” to travel.
Sign the petition below to DEMAND your Congressman Defund the TSA!
|Whereas: Repeated internal testing of TSA’s screening procedures have shown the systems have up to a whopping 95 percent failure rate to detect weapons and explosives; and|
|Whereas: Since its inception the TSA has engaged in wholesale violation of Americans’ most basic bodily privacy, through intrusive technology and old-fashioned groping; and|
|Whereas: Without authorization, the TSA is now experimenting with facial recognition and artificial intelligence, developing profiles of American travelers without any warrant; and|
|Whereas: Congress has a responsibility to cut wasteful spending and the billions of dollars in security theater is a great place to start;|
|Therefore: I call upon you to DEFUND the Transportation Security Administration in future budget legislation.|
