Why Did We Spend Millions on Babel X To Connect to Climate Migrant DNA?

By using this DNA footprint Migrants could be rounded up and identified by DNA and evicted from the country once their purpose is served! A REPORT FROM THE INTERCEPT REVEALS!

Ukrainians currently living abroad can submit DNA samples at their current location to help locate their missing relatives under special circumstances, The FBI collects DNA from migrants seeking Visas. The US Supreme Court has ruled that requiring a forensic DNA sample upon felony arrest does not violate rights guaranteed by the 4th Amendment of the US Constitution.

Babel X is an industry-leading linguistics and text analytics tool which the FBI just purchased 5000 licenses for so they can legally investigate and gather information on American citizens on social media. The platform offers a unique cross-lingual searching capability. Users enter search terms in their language of choice to retrieve multi-lingual results. The FBI has increased racial/ethnic diversity by 6.4% and increased in the proportion of female employees by 5.1%. Increasing the diversity breakdown across executives, supervisors, and non-supervisors of current FBI employees as of April 20, 2024.

The FBI has amassed 21.7 million DNA profiles — equivalent to about 7 percent of the U.S. population. The FBI aims to nearly double its current $56.7 million budget for dealing with its DNA catalog with an additional $53.1 million, according to its budget request for fiscal year 2024. “The requested resources will allow the FBI to process the rapidly increasing number of DNA samples collected by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security,” an appeal for an increase says. In an April 2023 statement submitted to Congress to explain the budget request, FBI Director Christopher Wray cited several factors that had “significantly expanded the DNA processing requirements of the FBI.” He said the FBI collected around 90,000 samples a month — “over 10 times the historical sample volume” — and expected that number to swell to about 120,000 a month, totaling about 1.5 million new DNA samples a year.

“When we’re talking about rapid expansion like this, it’s getting us ever closer to a universal DNA database,” Vera Eidelman, a staff attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union who specializes in genetic privacy, told The Intercept. “I think the civil liberties implications here are significant.” The rapid growth of the FBI’s sample load is in large part thanks to a Trump-era rule change that mandated the collection of DNA from migrants who were arrested or detained by immigration authorities.

The FBI began building a DNA database as early as 1990. By 1998, it helped create a national database called Combined DNA Index System, or CODIS, that spanned all 50 states. Each state maintained its own database, with police or other authorities submitting samples based on their states’ rules, and CODIS allowed all the states to search across the entire country. At first, the collection of data was limited to DNA from people convicted of crimes, from crime scenes, and from unidentified remains.

Even those categories were controversial at the time. When CODIS was launched nationally, most states did not submit DNA from all people convicted of felonies; the only point of consensus among the states’ collection programs was to take DNA from convicted sex offenders. “If you look back at when CODIS was established, it was originally for violent or sexual offenders,” Anna Lewis, a Harvard researcher who specializes in the ethical implications of genetics research, told The Intercept. “The ACLU warned that this was going to be a slippery slope, and that’s indeed what we’ve seen.”

Today, police have the authority to take DNA samples from anyone sentenced for a felony charge. In 28 states, police can take DNA samples from suspects arrested for felonies but who have not been convicted of any crime. In some cases, police offer plea deals to reduce felony charges to misdemeanor offenses in exchange for DNA samples. Police are even acquiring DNA samples from unwitting people, as The Intercept recently reported.
