Foreigners leaving the country through any of the nation's 30 busiest airports would undergo mandatory fingerprinting under an amendment senators added Monday to a sweeping immigration bill. "This is an agreement that we need to build toward a biometric visa exit system," said Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who offered the amendment by Hatch, who was absent Monday. "Implementing this biometric exit system is long overdue." (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)
