How This Impacts Mobility
While it is not the intent of the CBP to release the sensitive data of individuals, the manifests currently provided to data brokers often includes the PII of transferees and military personnel shipping household goods shipped to the United States. The CBP does not believe it has the authority under statute to remove the PII. The data brokers post the manifest information online to provide an analysis and trends on shipments not intending to expose the PII of transferees. This provision, if enacted, would correct this problem.
