U.S. won't delay passport requirement to cross Canadian border

The new passport requirements are set to take effect June 1 for all citizens of the United States, Canada, Mexico and Bermuda -- who previously were allowed to travel between their countries without stringent proof of identity. The Canada-U.S. border has been a problematic one, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday, which is why both countries are working together to "harden" the Canadian boundary. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Tuesday she would halt delays in implementing the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, which requires Americans and Canadians to present passports or other secure documents proving citizenship before crossing the U.S. border with Canada. U.S. citizens will be required to carry a U.S. passport or passport card, a valid "trusted traveler program" card, an enhanced driver's license, a military ID accompanied by official travel orders or a U.S. merchant mariner document. Canadians must meet similar requirements.
