"Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced the publication of new proposed rule that would establish Global Entry--a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) voluntary initiative that streamlines the international arrivals and admission process at airports for trusted travelers through biometric identification--as a permanent program. 'Global Entry expedites the customs and security process for trusted air travelers through biometric identification while helping DHS ensure the safety of all airline passengers,' said Secretary Napolitano. 'Making Global Entry permanent will improve customer service at airports across the country and enable law enforcement to focus on higher-risk travelers.'"
