Homeland Security To Fingerprint *US Citizens* *Exiting* USSubmitted by paulbu on Fri, 05/29/2009 - 00:00
From /. : "The US Department of Homeland Security is set to kickstart a controversial new pilot to scan the fingerprints of travellers departing the United States. From June, US Customs and Border Patrol will take a fingerprint scan of travellers exiting the United States from Detroit, while the US Transport Security Administration will take fingerprint scans of international travellers exiting the United States from Atlanta. The controversial plan to scan outgoing passengers — including US citizens — was allegedly hatched under the Bush Administration. An official has said it will be used in part to crack down on the US population of illegal immigrants."
All I can add is "WTF?!" And I still remember how I was getting an "exit visa" to leave Soviet Union... Anyone here bets it is not coming here soon as well?
