Minority Report - The Home Game


El Manana reports that the U.S. will test out iris identification technology on undocumented immigrants in the McAllen, TX area.  Officials want to evaluate the efficiency of this security measure for possible use in the future.  Testing will take place in October.

The futuristic gadgetry has been made popular in the movies, especially ones starring Tom Cruise.  I'm including a scene from his 2002 flop hit movie only because it features eye scanners and has the words "minority" and "report" in the title.  The irony couldn't be more glaring.
