Child photo

A mother holds her child up to take a photo using CBP’s facial recognition system at the Mariposa Port of Entry.

Emerging from the Dennis DeConcini Port of Entry, Samuel Guevarra was sporting a thin moustache and short haircut as he walked up Grand Avenue last Wednesday.

A few moments earlier, his likeness had been captured and stored by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection camera.
