routine DNA sampling

Should the US start taking DNA samples from everyone who is arrested, including illegal immigrants, just like they routinely take fingerprints?

Or is it too intrusive because "unlike fingerprints, DNA profiles have the potential to reveal our physical diseases and mental disorders?" Do you think it would "exacerbate the pervasive problems of profiling?"
