United States
I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

Having travelled to the US recently, I can confirm that they absolutely make you feel like a criminal at point of entry.

I stood in line for around an hour and a half, only to have my photo taken, fingerprints scanned, motives questioned, and friends called at home by unidentified immigration officials.

As a one-off, abroad, I can deal with paranoid authoritarian bullying, but I'm sorry Tony I'm not putting up with that at home. If you want to print a barcode on MY neck I've got a single-digit biometric you can scan instead.
