Non-citizen Muslims must report to the INS for special "registration"

One of my friends at my ex-workplace is from Bangladesh. Last night I caught him on Windows Messenger, and he said that all non-citizen Muslims had to report to the INS for special "registration" early this morning. He speculated that in the best case, they would fingerprint him, take his picture, and watch him closely from then on. Worst case, they might stick him on a plane back to Bangladesh. I offered shaky sympathy. It was late, no one was awake but me, and several TVs were still on around the house, broadcasting creepy war stuff. I was in that strange state of consciousness you get into when you are in something like an accident and everything turns unfamiliar and surreal.
