Homeland Security officials are reportedly preparing to expand DNA testing of illegal aliens in their custody, an effort to clamp down on rampant immigration fraud at the southern border.
The Trump administration is hoping to give Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents the ability to extract DNA material from illegal aliens in their custody, according to a draft regulation obtained by BuzzFeed News. Such authorization would better help authorities crack down on immigration fraud and prevent criminals from entering the country, but it would likely face pushback from immigrant-rights and progressive groups.
Officials within the Department of Homeland Security would use software that enables them to extract genetic material from any undocumented immigrant in their custody in only five minutes time, according to the draft regulation proposed by the Justice Department.

If the regulation is put into place, hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants could be tested annually. Such a move could be a game-changer in dealing with the influx of family units appearing before the U.S. southern border, many of them found to be lying about their familial relations in order to skirt immigration laws.
