Under current rules, US citizens and permanent residents can refuse to have their faces scanned at airport terminals by talking to a CBP officer or an airline representative.

I assume anyone foolish enough to mess with Big Brother is, by objecting, immediately suspected of "having something to hide" and their life made a misery.
