ESPN Staff – AUSTIN, Texas — The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced it will stop issuing green cards to people whose biometrically scanned records indicate they have been living in the United States for more than six months.
The USCIS will begin removing those individuals from the U.K., France, Germany, Ireland, Australia and Canada from the list of those who must submit biometric records to the government, according to the announcement.
Those individuals must submit their fingerprints, iris scans and photographs for biometric identification, which the government uses to verify citizenship, according the USCIS.
This is not a ban on those who may be living in another country.
This is an effort to limit people’s access to the United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia, which offer the same biometric security as the U., USCIS said.
Those applicants will have to submit an additional biometric information when they visit the U, which could include a social security number, passport number, or a driver’s license number.
The US has been considering banning citizens from certain countries from obtaining green cards and visa extensions after the Supreme Court upheld a law in 2014 that would have allowed the US to do so.
The decision came with a caveat that the ruling could be appealed.
But the Supreme court decision has caused concern in Congress, as well as some governors and immigration experts, who say that a ban could have serious repercussions for the economy.
In 2016, the Supreme to the US Supreme Court ruled against the federal government’s effort to ban citizens from five Muslim-majority countries.
A panel of the court said that the federal law violated the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment of the U to limit the federal power to regulate interstate commerce.
The court’s ruling was a blow to the Obama administration, which had been seeking a compromise between its demands for greater access to visas and an increase in the number of people who are eligible for them.
The law, which was introduced by California Sen. Dianne Feinstein and passed by the U-S Senate, would have created a national biometric database of foreign nationals.
The Obama administration said the database was necessary to combat the threat posed by terrorists who have targeted the U of A and other U.s. institutions.
The database would have provided a centralized location for the federal authorities to share information about individuals who have been admitted to the country.
