DHS Begins Tracking Exit Data on Canadian Border

In a major development, the New York Times reported today that DHS will begin tracking departure data on the Canadian border. In collaboration with the Canadian government, biographic information contained on passports presented to Canadian border officials by persons exiting the U.S. will be shared the the Department of Homeland Security. That data will be compared to data collected upon entry to the U.S. to monitor whether persons have overstayed their authorized duration of stay.
