WASHINGTON (AP) — America's registered child sex offenders will now have to use passports identifying them for their past crimes when traveling overseas.

The State Department said Wednesday it would begin revoking passports of registered child sex offenders and will require them to apply for a new one that carries a "unique identifier" of their status. Those applying for a passport for the first time will not be issued one without the identifier, which will be a notice printed inside the back cover of the passport book that reads: "The bearer was convicted of a sex offense against a minor, and is a covered sex offender pursuant to (U.S. law)."
.....

State Department officials said they weren't aware of any other group of felons who'll be identified as offenders in their passports.

 

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Still sort of processing different thoughts about it but my first reaction is not positive. Megan's Law is already pretty heavy and now they are extended it internationally?
