Legislators Find Full Fingerprinting in Violation of Texan’s Civil Liberties

The Texas Department of Public Safety is under fire from Texas lawmakers for taking full fingerprints on state ID cards and driver’s license applications from January 2014 to February of this year. Legislators state that they only approved taking one fingerprint and that taking all 10 fingerprints invades Texan’s privacy and civil liberty. In order to stop this process as soon as possible, legislators created a ban on full fingerprinting that was inserted into a bill aimed at punishing commercial drivers without a license. The bill also states that any full fingerprints taken during that time would need to be destroyed by the end of December this year and that fingerprinting must be limited to thumbprints or index fingerprints. Supporters of full fingerprinting believe it is the best way to protect us from terrorism and human trafficking amongst other crimes.
