Homeland Security ATM's?

Over the last couple of months at SEA I've seen the appearance of machines that look like ATM's with the Dept of Homeland Security seal on the unit, a screen and a slot that looks wide enough to insert a passport. They are all over the place behind security, but I'm curious what they are supposed to be used for. Anyone know?

Thanks,

Charles, SJ

They are part of the US-VISIT program. When you leave the US, you will scan your passport, match your fingerprint, etc. It is to speed up the exit process.
