    The Sanchez article highlights concerns that were reported back in 2006, when the "secure" U.S. passport was issued. It also restates some of the concerns of stealing data from chipped passports.

    What his article doesn't do is make any real point. FAIR, CIS and Numbers are all one and the same - there is no distinction between them, other than spins on the same anti-immigration fervor.

    The article manages to impugn Muslims and foreign nationals, who have cleared various levels of security checks to obtain valid visas, but doesn't offer any solutions.

    But then again, that is in keeping with FAIR's typical approach in advocating a closed-border. No one comes in, no one leaves - problem solved, right?
