Iran to subject Americans to 'enhanced security measures'

In response to an American announcement that it will subject nationals of 14 countries seeking to enter the United States to 'enhanced security measures,' one of those countries - Iran - has announced that it will subject Americans seeking to enter to similar enhanced security measures.
Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, told the semi-official Mehr news agency that Iran had already started fingerprinting American visitors in response to an earlier US decision to fingerprint Iranian visitors.

The Iranian parliament drafted a bill and lawmakers passed it, he said, adding that all US citizens who intend to enter Iran will now also be screened

“For some time now, the Islamic Republic of Iran has reacted to America’s decision to fingerprint citizens by reciprocating this move and placing on its agenda the fingerprinting of its [American] citizens, and the latest action by the Americans is not excluded from this matter,” Boroujerdi said.
Something tells me that a lot more Iranians want to visit the US than vice versa.

Maybe Iran can be convinced to try the Saudi solution.
