What's on the Inspector's Screen About You?

Readers may wonder what Department of Homeland Security port inspectors and other officers may have available to them about travelers and other persons they are inspecting or investigating.

A reader of the web publication Philosecurity submitted for publication a copy of a full travel history document the reader obtained about himself through a request under the Freedom of Information Act. Philosecurity published the document with an article. Both DHS and then the reader have redacted personally identifying information, but the reader has added annotations in red to give a sense of the nature of the surprising detail.
