The US is 0.002% safer thanks to border fingerprints

According to ClickOnDetroit, the US-VISIT program which fingerprints and photographs people at the 50 busiest border crossings in the US, has registered 17,000,000 people and stopped 372 people entering illegally.

That makes these 50 crossings (forget for a second all the others) 0.002% safer than they were.

I can only hope that we get something similar in the UK.

(Thanks to Rory for the heads up).
