DHS proposes vetting all passengers prior to departure

This? Scary scary scary.
Accordingly, with this proposed rule, CBP is proposing two transmission options for air carriers to select from at their discretion: (i) the submission of complete manifests no later than 60 minutes prior to departure or (ii) transmitting passenger data as individual, real-time transactions, i.e., as each passenger checks in, up to but no later than 15 minutes prior to departure. Under both options, the carrier will not permit the boarding of a passenger unless the passenger has been cleared by CBP.
This is worse than the "watch lists", because it completely does away with the presumption of innocence. Meaning, unless Homeland Security clears you (under a completely opaque process, and you know how well the watch lists have been working for everyone) before your plane or boat or train or whatever is scheduled to depart, you could be stuck in NYC, or Alaska, or Bagdad - indefinitely.

You can read The Identity Project's comments on the proposed rule here.
