Seems Reasonable To Me

From the Christian Science Monitor:

Sen. Susan Collins (R) of Maine, ranking minority member of the Senate Homeland Security committee, added a call for the US to cancel all US visas for people whose names are listed in the broadest database of potential terrorists. This database, the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment, is overseen by the National Counterterrorism Center and contains well over 500,000 entries.
Given how many totally legitimate visa requests get denied, it's ridiculous--absurd, really--that individuals suspected of being terrorists can still legally enter the US.
