“As a foreign traveler, Punit Pawar is used to the security when he flies into the U.S., so he barely noticed Tuesday when he was asked to put his 10 fingers on a digital scanner as part of an enhanced security system rolling out at airports across the country.”It didn’t take much of my time, so it didn’t bother me,” said Pawar, a citizen of India and a student at Boston’s Northeastern University. “I’m OK with it, if this is what they need to do for security.”” (AP)
