>DHS to begin full fingerprint scans for visitors
The Homeland Security Department intends to begin scanning all 10 fingerprints for foreign visitors starting Nov. 29 at Dulles International Airport in Virginia, department officials said Tuesday.
Foreigners visiting the United States on visas must have a digital photograph taken and a scan of their two index fingers under the U.S. Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology program. DHS has built a database of 90 million fingerprints in the four years the program has been in operation.
Expansion to 10-finger scans, which has been in the planning stages for several years, is now beginning, Robert Mocny, U.S. Visit director, told journalists at the Foreign Press Center in Washington yesterday.
The 10-finger U.S. Visit scans are being rolled out at U.S. airports and at all land and sea border crossings, with a goal of being fully operational by the end of 2008, according to press reports of the briefing.
Fingerprint the foreign visitors who actually go through the trouble to get a legal visa but allow illegal immigrants to enter our country across our unprotected borders and once they get here, the Senate tries to give them amnesty and the governor of New York wanted to give the illegals driver’s licenses until we the people revolted. Anyone else see anything wrong with this picture?
Department of Homeland Security, headed by the dual Israel/US citizen Chertoff, is not trying to stop terrorism. If they were concerned about stopping terrorism, they would close the borders. Instead, our government is building a Fascist Police State and this is one more solid step in that direction.
