The purpose of the Framework is to support the important work of the Department of Homeland Security's Apex Air Entry and Exit Re-Engineering (DHS AEER) Project as a key stakeholder, and urges Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to deploy a cost-effective and efficient airport biometric exit program that adheres to 16 years of federal statutory mandates with Congressional oversight and funding.

Speaking to the urgency of a comprehensive biometric entry-exit immigration system, Working Group member James Chaparro, former DHS Deputy Undersecretary for Intelligence and former Immigration and Customs Enforcement Assistant Director for Intelligence, and currently Executive Vice President of Strategy at SE Solutions, said this about the urgency of implementing biometric exit now:

"Terrorist threats we face at our borders and ports of entry continue to evolve and both lawful and unlawful pressures on our borders continue to increase. Better processes to facilitate travel but assure against illegal entry, and good data on overstays, are essential to keep our country safe. Our nation cannot afford to rely on antiquated technology and processes to secure our borders, and improving our biometric entry and exit screening processes should be a top priority in our efforts keep our nation safe."

The Framework makes clear that the implementation of airport biometric exit program and improvements to biometric entry processes are not only doable and capable of meeting essential border control criteria, but are long overdue. Janice Kephart, SIBA CEO and a former border counsel to the 9/11 Commission who testified before House Judiciary in November 2013 on the subject, stated the reasons for creating a Working Group and drafting the Framework:

"SIBA's members are innovators of solutions that protect and secure identity across private and public platforms. The Working Group we have formed includes innovators that have worked with DHS for years on identity solutions, and others responsible for deploying huge biometric border systems overseas. These are the people that     know how to develop and deploy holistic identity and biometric solutions that meet the demands of the traveling public, national security and privacy. It is pivotal that the Department of Homeland Security properly engage the Airport Entry and Exit Working Group now so the best biometric entry-exit solutions can be deployed as quickly as possible."

Don Erickson, CEO of SIA, whose mission is act as a primary resource for the global security industry, said this about the formation of the Working Group and release of the Framework: "The security industry has a long history of working with other stakeholders to provide technology solutions addressing border security and immigration issues. I am hopeful that formation of the Working Group will foster the kind of productive public-private sector partnership that is essential to solving our nation's most pressing challenges."
