Cool Biometric tracking system of foreign visitors rejected by Senate Judiciary

Biometric tracking system of foreign visitors rejected by Senate Judiciary

"Essentially the amendment to the bill would have required at every point of entry in the U.S. a biometric system that can capture biometric information such as iris scans and fingerprinting to identify people. This requirement would have to be reached prior to enabling illegal immigrants eligibility for permanent residency or a green card..."

You know you hear about the Adminstration's efforts to track down terrorists by following phone calls and internet contacts and then you see that the Senate judiciary doesn't want to support a biometric tracking system. Probably not politically correct.

It wouldn't effect those who are here illegally, only those who are here legally. If this was implemented then the bad guys would just sneak in from Canada or Mexico.
