MISSION –  A new U.S. Customs and Border Protection biometric pilot program at the Anzalduas International Bridge is expected to go live in August.

CBP says the use of facial recognition technology is to confirm each passenger is who they say they are on their passport or other travel documents.

The information will be temporarily stored by CBP.

Back in 2004, Congress required the Department of Homeland Security to develop a biometric entry and exit system.
