Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

CHICAGO The government is adding more airports and seaports to its system of checking whether foreign visitors are leaving the U-S as scheduled.

Homeland Security Undersecretary Asa Hutchinson announced in Chicago today that another eleven airports and two seaports are joining the list of checkpoints.

Foreign visitors traveling on a visa are fingerprinted and photographed when they arrive at major American airports and seaports to check for terrorists and other illegal entries.

A Homeland Security spokesman today said between 35 and 40 percent of undocumented immigrants have overstayed their visas.
