In the section on excessive expense and lack of oversight of contractors they observe that 1.2 Billion USDollars have been spent on fingerprinting technology for US-VISIT. They they say that people are still overstaying their visas.

For a billion USDollars you could hire many investigators to expend shoe leather to work on overstaying visas.

To add insult to injury, RFID is proposed as a solution. Sigh...
