thank you. what is the purpose of making the copies?
thank you. yes, there are no laws against it and many places in many states do it now.
while i am not sure the purpose, i can tell you the information is kept there to communicate the information quickly to someone who is not connected to the database. for example, police could quickly collect names, addresses and race of everyone passing a roadblock or boarding an airplane.
if you are very adverse to this policy, then you can take it up with your elected state officials in the General Assembly and see about a law prohibiting such a policy.
