Criminalization of Canadian Workers

So much for the Harpocrites claims for sovereignty regarding the longest undefended border in the world. While US Canada security passports come into effect in 2008, for Canadians working in the U.S. we are being treated to being just like any other suspected terrorist.

Last time I checked being fingerprinted was done when you commited a crime.

US proposes fingerprinting Canadian workers

Under new rules proposed by the Bush administration, Canadians who work in the United States are set to be fingerprinted and photographed every time they enter the country by air or sea.

The rule, proposed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, expands on the so-called US-VISIT program, which has been in effect since 2004.

It will affect any Canadian working in the U.S., including nurses, agricultural workers, those travelling through the States, as well as students and their dependents.

Of course this is also part and parcel of the expansion of NAFTA into the
"establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security community" with a common "outer security perimeter."
