Thread: Another reason to get Citizenship

  1. #1
    For those of you out there who are qualified, still deciding weather to become a USC, this might just be the push you need:

    Department of Homeland Security Expands Collection of Biometrics for Visitors

    Release Date: December 18, 2008

    For Immediate Release
    Office of the Press Secretary
    Contact: 202-282-8010

    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced today that it is expanding the categories of non-U.S. citizens required to provide digital fingerprints and a photograph upon entry to the United States through the US?VISIT program.

    http://www.dhs.gov/xnews/relea...r_1229620172131.shtm

    It also addresses that grey area of PR abandonment in that it seems an LPR is now considered a visitor to the US.

    Exactly davdah! Now imagine the Government trying to make USC's do this on entry and soon on exit from the country. There would be a revolution. Talk about a police State!

    I also assume once they start the exit checks, you'll have to comply with that as well. The only way any potential terrorist could possibly bypass this new system was if they kidnapped you while abroad, had plastic surgery to look like you and scalped your fingerprint and grafted it onto theirs! That's quite a lot to do, even for the most committed terrorist.

    There must be a little DHS think-tank somewhere whose only purpose in life is to dream up all the possible ways to enter the country via fraudulent methods and ways to stop it, no matter how absurd it seems.

    Another issue is, what line will you use to enter as an LPR in future? The USC/LPR or the visitor lines? Given currently all the equipment needed for US-VISIT is on the visitor lines, I guess you might have a long wait to enter the country you live in.

    Notice at the end "The Department of Homeland Security has not announced any plans to fingerprint U.S. citizens at the border"

    "Some visitors to the U.S. will continue to remain exempt, including non-U.S. citizens younger than 14 or older than 79, as well as Canadian citizens on short-term visits under B visas. US-VISIT stands for United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology. "

    Canadian citizens need B visas to visit?

    It's the Brave New World Order according to the DHS remember Smeagolrocks

    My experience is that they make it really hard for legal immigrants while nothing is done to illegals.

    BTW, is this a good way to use tax payers $$$?

  10. #10
    Indeed Smeagolrocks. Why would a terrorist go to all that bother to enter legally when just crossing the border is easier
