Fingerprinting Visitors to the U.S.

MIAMI — U.S. Immigration officers began fingerprinting and photographing tens of thousands of visitors arriving from certain other countries Monday, in what federal authorities described as a sophisticated new security measure to monitor who enters the country and how long they stay.
Citizens of 27 countries, including Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and most European nations, are exempt from the program if they are visiting as tourists for fewer than 90 days.

Wow, is this extreme. We can’t do better on the intelligence end, to prevent this from being necessary?
