It's not a matter of hidding. Probably 99.9% of the people entering in the US are not terrorists.

It's the way the US is generalizing its foreign affairs in a matter of "if you are not with me you are against me". :rolleyes:

Why should latin american countries be considered dangerous?

There is no point to fingerprinting anyone. What purpose would it serve? Hell, there are people here on student Visas that are no longer enrolled in school. They can't even keep track of that, how are fingerprints going to help.

Maybe we should just begin tagging people like they do sea turtles for tracking purposes. A nice big hoop right in the ear should do. :rolleyes:

it wont help in every case , but if they are a marked terroist (which they have plenty of info on) they can do fingerprint matching and face recognizing technoligies to identify. and if they stop one it is worth it.

are these people really scared by having their fingerprint and photos taken?

come on

That's funny, if the government was concerned about victimizing everyone, they would do less or nothing. That is fallacious, actively doing something to help guard against attack is victimizing? Bah!

mari,

are you blind to real world, by marked i mean people that are known or at least supspected terrorist on a watch list. that is what i am talking about.

i think it would be worth it to any of the families who would have lost a loved one in the attack.

that is true gandalf, just another bonus.

Stored with those fingerprints will be other private indentifying information. Hopefully the servers storing this info will be more secure than the DOD's computers that were hacked this year (I think it was DOD, or military ?)

Fingerprints have never been studied to determine how unique they really are. The only people who say fingerprints are unique are the people who make their living looking at them. Scientists have not researched their claims.

Unlike DNA, experts say there are no studies to disprove that over a large enough population there will be at least several different people with at least one fingerprint that matchs.

My objection to the collection of prints from innocent people is that they have the right to be left alone by government, unless probable cause exists to believe a crime occurred. People should object to fingerprinting merely for creating a database for unknown purposes in the future.
