Border Control Outsourcing
According to scientists, the establishment of the de facto should be prevented. They write: “Remember that for Big Tech companies, ‘You can check in anytime you want, but you can never leave’.”
This relates to well-known points of interest such as privacy, security, legislation, and financial uncertainty associated with immigration. Transfer of data outside European territory also requires attention. The professors write about this: “When the NSA formulates a legal basis, it is likely that the US government will be able to gain access to the email traffic and data of students and staff at Dutch universities. Take physical access to our country as a yardstick: Can we outsource border control in Schiphol? Issuing passports for a foreign country?
In addition, the professors argue that the US government can compel companies and organizations to cooperate with US political desires. This raises questions about the data of foreign students and staff from countries with which there are geopolitical tensions, for example from China or Iran. Is it reasonable for the US government to force us to ban students from certain countries? “
