US airports will reportedly soon get facial recognition systems, designed to track visa holders as they leave the country.

A new project titled Biometric Exit is slated to soon be implemented across all US airports and aims to use facial matching systems to identify visa holders boarding international flights, according to reports.

All international flights and border crossing in the US are expected to soon incorporate facial recognition.

The new project reportedly involves passengers having their photo taken just before they board their flight.

However, the Trump administration's increased focus on immigration reportedly looks to expand the program to more US airports in the summer.

Although DHS chief Jeh Johnson planned to roll out the program by 2018, President Trump's executive order and aggressive focus on border security has reportedly expedited the process.
