Supreme Court has ruled that privacy is a fundamental right, but it is obvious that the limits on the rights of the citizen and whether or not they are being curtailed are up for question. The collection of biometric data was one among several concerns that the right to privacy raised. This judicial process resonated with a similar concern that was taken up in the aftermath of 9/ 11 in the United States. As the Patriot Act came into effect, concerns about the evasion of individual civil liberties were brought to the fore. Finger printing and other biopolitical practices at airports became the norm after 9/11.
