    anything SL is looked with a 3rd eye..sigh.. Sl need to monitor the movements offoreignersas well. I rem after 91 USA made it compulsory for ALL citizens to be finger printed and photographed. An American who generally get visa onarrival to MANY countries traveled to Brazil and refused to be photographed and fingerprinted. When he was photographed BY FORCE , she stuck his middle finer by his side burns. THE immigration officer arrested him and produced him in courts. The judge sentenced him to be jailed for obstructing an officer to carry his duties and told the suspect. IF a Brazilian was to be photographed and finger printed it should be the same for an American when visiting Brazil..Since then the American Immigration added Brazil as a country in their visa waiver program.... MY hats OFF to the Judge..
