This new security event applies only to foreign passengers, who will be fingerprinted as they leave the U.S.. I question the need for having the fingerprints of someone who is now gone out of the country. This new security measure is an unfunded mandate which must be paid for by the carrier, and all cost will be passed on to paying passengers. I see it as just another travel tax. Not much different than the Alaska Environmental tax or the proposed California Law enforcement tax. It all feels warm and fuzzy, but someone is gonna have to pay the bill. That someone is you and me. What's next ?
