Simple, the same way they do in some countries. On entry to North America
you are given a temporary internal passport. At each airport or mass transit
terminal you swipe your card or go to the local police station to check in.
The only addition is that the card now needs bio identification (iris scan,
finger print etc)given the fact the terrorists used fake ID's. If we could
build NORAD this should be easy. Hungary used to do this with old fashion
crank telephones and ledger books.
