“A lot of Americans grumbled, but there were no major delays or disruptions at this bustling border station in the last two days as United States citizens were required for the first time to show a passport or other identity documents to return to the country by land.

Across the 1,900-mile border with Mexixo, inspectors applied the new measures gently. Americans who did not have the proper documents underwent additional questioning and were given a written reminder of the requirements, but were not turned away, border officials said.” (NYT)
