“On Wednesday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) asked representatives of Facebook and Twitter if a pro-life tweet quoting Mother Teresa constituted “hate speech.” They remained silent for ten seconds, and then the Twitter representative attempted to dodge the question.

CBP says it keeps photos of US citizens in the Traveler Verification Service system for 12 hours, and photos of noncitizens for 14 days. It also sends photos of noncitizens to the US Department of Homeland Security IDENT database, which stores information for 75 years on visitors to the US.
The airlines and airports aren’t allowed to keep copies of the photos and must immediately purge them from their systems, according to CBP. However, they’re allowed to use other photos they take with the same cameras for commercial purposes. That means they could take a second photo and use it in their own facial recognition system to target ads to you.
