No, the Cancelled Security Program wasn’t a “Muslim Tracking” System

The Obama administration formally announced the death of the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS), a program Obama put on permanent hiatus soon after he took office.

In a letter addressed to the President, Schneiderman wrote that NSEERS, created after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, did not reduce terrorist activity and instead “undermined trust” in law enforcement and instilled fear in some communities.
“We can’t risk giving President-elect Trump the tools to create an unconstitutional religious registry,” Schneiderman said in a separate statement.
Here is the truth about the NSEERS program, why and when it was developed, and how it was to be used…
