Another round of illegal USA travel controls
Recently, while I've been travelling, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the USA Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a press release announcing new, illegal, identity verification procedures for travellers at airports in the USA, while the DHS Customs and Border Protection (CBP) division has published a formal proposal for a new, illegal, Electronic System for Travel Authorization for visitors to the USA. See my comments on both proposals in the linked articles in the Identity Project blog.
