Dear Editor:
Cyrus Mehta asserts in his November 26 Immigration Daily article, that the INS special registration program to fingerprint nonimmigrants from countries with significant Muslim populations is "troubling because it inherently profiles an individual based on his or her nationality regardless of individualized guilt or suspicion." This is the same old tired liberal argument against profiling. Profiling is indeed needed in this situation as the terrorists of today are overwhelmingly, if not 100%, of radical Islamic background. Have Christian, Buddhist, or Latino nonimmigrant terrorists attacked or want to attack the US? I believe that most Americans of reasonable mind see that this is simply common sense to check on men from those countries that pose the greatest terrorist threat to the US and who are only here on nonimmigrant status. The program does not cover immigrants or men with asylum applications filed before November 23, 2002. If this were really targeting Muslims for no reason, why is North Korea, an atheistic and communist country where one probably cannot even practice Islam, on the list?
