Security at any price?

Two of every five immigrants living illegally in the US have overstayed their visas, according to estimates quoted in the May 14, 2013 Washington Post. 
It seems there's been a law since 1996 that calls for the government to use biometric data to verify when visa holders enter and leave the US. It hasn't been implemented. Costs certainly played a role in the decision

The Senate committee pondering immigration reform today rejected an amendment that would have required Homeland Security to use biometric indicators to track visa holders' entries and exits. The bill does include a provision that would strengthen verification using biographic data like photographs.
