Democratic senators demand HUD investigation for facial recognition

Democratic lawmakers have sent a letter to Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson today, demanding information about the usage of facial recognition technology in federally assisted housing. Signed by senators Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and Ron Wyden among others, the letter expresses concern over ’invasive, unnecessary and harmful government surveillance.’

Presumably, facial recognition is being used in public traffic areas like hallways. I would hope it's not in someone's house/apartment. I can see where the technology could be abused by the government and I'm totally against its use (esp. in housing); however, I don't think it's use is racially motivated at all. If it's being tested in HUD units, then of course it's on low income areas. It also makes sense to test it in high population areas. Of course the racist left sees race in everything.

It’s still unbelievable that Ben Carson (along with many agency picks in this administration) was chosen for HUD. Absolutely no experience and has been completely unable to answer basic questions from congress.
