Because the fingerprint proves that you are background checking the person that they say they are. Not a different person. Without the two, anyone could be anyone, via identity theft.
It doesn't necessarily stop a future event but if the person has a background in any state it will come up in the database.
Right now, Cori checks are put in place but that only checks Mass. We live very close to Rhode Island and many people move from there to here so that alone misses a lot of potential past crimes. Never mind people moving from any other state.
I don't see a problem with it. If you don't want a background check don't apply for that job. I have had background checks before and just had to go through another one because the company I work for sold software to Miami-Dade Corrections and they require background checks even though I don't work directly for them just because I might have contact with their employee data.
