registration pains

In the last few days, I posted rants (here and here) about the registration process imposed by INS on all non-immigrant males from Middle Eastern countries. I just stumbled on something equally vitriolic: The law is not applied in the same way from one INS office to the other. Take a look at the breakdown by office. I suppose there’s no need to point out yet again that the registration process, even if it were justified and constitutional, is not being applied in a manner that can lead to proper analysis and tracking of data for future anti-terrorism activities by the relevant agencies. But, this, Mr. Ashcroft thinks, is what is going to make the country safer.
