fingerprinting visitors

The UK's Guardian Unlimited reported earlier today that a proposal to photograph, fingerprint, and collect detailed information from visitors to the United States is being considered by the Bush Administration. People seeking to enter the United States to live in the country are presently required to submit that type of information but visitors usually aren't. Attorney General Ashcroft's prepared statement on the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System was released today.
