Why not instead have a bit of oversight over the Immigrations personell at the airport?
Aside from serious immigration decisions made knee-jerk(e.g. enter as tourist with future student visa in passport, they may cross the visa out, no expl., no recourse, and you must now start the student visa process over from the beginning, incl. fees.), there's the verbal abuse backed with threats directed at tourists, that one may observe e.g. in Boston.
(Eg: Sign in full waiting-line room says "no cellular phone use". "cellular" is not easily understood from any other language. Suited non-uniformed agent yells across room at non-Anglophone tourist: "turn off your phone, can't you read?" Tourist doesn't realize he is addressed. Suit marches over and yells about being deaf and understanding English, but no mention of phone) Tourist begins to understand and apologize, during which Suit (still yelling) threatens him with confiscating the phone. Stuff wannabe-cop security guards only dream of.
