“New rules for the types of identification U.S. or Canadian citizens must present to cross into the country shouldn’t cause significantPassports delays and won’t be strictly enforced at first, a senior federal official said.

Under the rules going into effect Thursday, people will no longer be allowed to simply declare to immigration officers at border crossings that they are citizens, said Jayson Ahern, deputy commissioner with U.S. Customs and Border Protection.” (AP)
