Letter to the editor

Regarding facial recognition and a national ID card: We could use this technology and other biometrics such as fingerprints and iris scans to improve visas and passports and eliminate fraud.

If this information, along with the information we currently print on existing documents, were simply digitally signed and encoded on a national ID card, most fraud would be halted, and known travelers could get through immigration lines much quicker.
