As part of the continuing efforts to make it clear to the rest of the world that they’re not welcome here in the good ol’ U.S. of A., three U.S.-Canada border crossings are now going to start forcing non-Canadians who cross into the U.S. to carry wireless RFID-cards that’ll contain their personal information. Apparently photographing and fingerprinting visitors wasn’t keeping enough people out. It’s a test program at this point, but that just means it’ll be a little longer before it spreads to every point of entry.
