“You’re Not Integral to the Project…”

immigration.jpgWell, this here is pretty fucked up.

According to Britain’s gay news site PinkNews.co.uk, the European Union just agreed to a new “security” measure for European citizens flying into the US. This agreement requires that all passengers submit much more personal information to their airline than ever before while booking their ticket.

This information will include, just for starters, “ethnic origin, political and philosophical opinions, credit card numbers, trade union membership, sex life and details of the passengers’ health,” and, once collected, will be made available to any US government agency that wants it, with no limit on what they can do with it.

Franco Frattini, vice president of the European Commission, said more sensitive information would be filtered out, and only used, “in exceptional cases, and to fight terrorism and other serious crimes.”

Yup, they’re using the good old “terrorist” chestnut again.

So now, the US government knows exactly how many gays are entering our land, and exactly where to find them, and whether they like Bush or not.

Does anyone seriously think this is a good idea?

Read the full story here, and see what you think.
