President Calls for the Elimination of Controversial Program

Washington, D.C.

The White House recently announced that the controversial National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS) will be fully dismantled by President Barack Obama before he leaves office in January. Groups like the American Civil Liberties Union and others had advocated for just such action and thousands of Americans had already signed petitions that called for the president to take such action. 

The NSEERS program is a special registration system designed for Muslim and Arab immigrants that was established by President George W. Bush in the wake of September 11, 2001—will be dismantled, President Obama announced last year. Since the program’s implementation, critics claimed it has proven to be ineffective, intrusive and clearly discriminatory.
