New US security regulations are coming into force that will see most foreign visitors having their photographs and fingerprints taken. The rules apply to visa holders and cover all but 28 countries.
 

Those arriving under the visa waiver programme - which includes most Europeans - are not affected.

But claims of discrimination are still being made by some of those countries whose nationals are affected.

Brazil has made formal complaints and started fingerprinting and photographing all US citizens arriving at its main international airports.

When I got back travelling from Canada, I saw these new (I think) fingerprinting devices when they checked my papers at customs. I also saw they had a webcam sitting on top of the computer pointed at me. I'm not sure if it was on or not, but it's still pretty freaky.

Well this is just the first step into the loss of all privacy. Eventually we will all have to give fingerprints and retinal scans to get a drivers liscense. And no I am not kidding or joking in any way. It will all be in the name of Homeland security which is begining to sound alot like der faderland.
