Well, illegals certainly can’t manufacture DNA, but they’ll definitely try.

Eventually, the analyzer also could be used to positively identify criminals, illegal immigrants, missing persons and mass casualty victims, he said.

The machine, known as a rapid DNA screener, is expected to cut days or weeks and hundreds of dollars off the per-use cost of DNA analysis.

Definitely try? How do you figure that's going to happen?

BTW, before any of this can be implemented there'll need to be laws passed for preservation of evidence, handling of the evidence, training manuals to be written for the LEO operators, laws passed to ensure that only LEO operates the machines, laws passed which define exactly how such a machine can be used, transported, not tampered with, calibrated, etc., etc..

But I'm sure you know that. What exactly would you like to discuss about this machine?

If they are willing to have themselves mutilated to live in this country illegally, I would say the sky’s the limit.

(Reuters) - A doctor from the Dominican Republic was convicted and sentenced in Boston on Thursday of offering to surgically alter the fingerprints of illegal aliens, the Department of Justice said.

The case is one of a number of attempts in recent years to subvert the U.S. government's powerful new biometric border security program, known as the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System.

The advances in Science/DNA will in the near future will allow law enforcement to quickly determine even those related to Illegal Aliens such as their Anchor Babies and whoever else they might be related to.

Look at the recent case of the Grim Sleeper serial killer in Los Angeles, they found him through a familial DNA match from his son.

In the near future criminals lying about who they are really related to and/or claim to be will readily be proven. A friend of mine knows of an Illegal Alien with a Criminal record that is working under her LEGAL sister's s/s# and ID. In a case like this if this person was scanned her true identity could more readily be made apparent or perhaps be logged for future use if needed to be accessed.

Thanks for an interesting post Benicar !!!

I believe you believe that this machine would be used identify who is an illegal alien. There is no machine or test[as of yet] that can determin immigration status. It's evident from the piece that the main use would be to identify kinship of persons appling for asylum or visas; or in cases of identifing persons injured or deceased.

You took the term "Illegal immigrants" and supposed that to mean that it would become a tool for law enforcement to identify who is in the country illegally.

No one can be determined to be an illegal alien[through this process] unless they have previously been determined to be so, and given a DNA sample to be stored in a data bank.

Altering DNA is not analogous to altering fingerprints...unless aliens hook up with Dr. Bruce Banner, changing one's DNA is not that posible[unless you are a Comic book charcter].
