The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has withdrawn a proposed rule that would have expanded DHS authorities and requirements for collecting biometrics. The proposed rule would have removed age restrictions, thereby requiring submission of biometrics for every applicant, petitioner, sponsor, beneficiary, or other individual filing for or associated with any immigration or naturalization benefit or request unless DHS waives or exempts the biometrics requirement. Additionally, the proposed rule would have codified the authority to use DNA test results and authorized the use of additional types of biometric modalities.
