10 Finger ID

U.S. Increases Fingerprints IDs

International visitors flying into New York now face being identified by all ten fingerprints, part of a heightened security system aimed at identifying potential terror suspects and visa fraud, officials said on Tuesday. The upgraded system, part of the U.S. government's Homeland Security program and its war on terror, increases the chances of catching illegal or potentially dangerous entrants into the country, officials said at a media briefing at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Tuesday. The system expands the digital fingerprinting of international visitors to ten fingers from two.
