As would I be from "the country that has your fingerprints on file".
Mine are on file as well, for completely different reasons (but not as
the result of a criminal record.)

Leaving one's fingerprints isn't a matter of political process, it's a
new condition of being a guest and visiting the United States. It's
simply the result of other people not having been good guests in the
recent past. It's also the result of the political process in D.C.
needing to make sure that all guests are treated equally (yeah, some
minor, niggly Constitutional issue prevents the government from
profiling guests entering the country or some silly issue like that.
