May I remind you and oters that the passport requirement is to also include trips to/from Mexico and cruises!

I am not for it since we are permitting illegals from South American countries into the U.S. with a promise to return to a immegration hearing in 90 days. Illegal Mexicans are deported still however.

MayI also remind you that Mexico and Canada are more lax than the U.S. (if that is possible) on who they admit into their countries?

Due to international business travel requirements, my wife and I have carried passports for 30 years. I realize obtaining and maintaining a passport may be yet another inconvenience, but the fact is that it's a different world since 9/11.

I am opposed to this new law as I feel it will create more problems than it will solve.That said I am not opposed to a new standard database photo id for Canada,USA,and Mexico for those that frequently cross the border.

What would be the point of having a separate ID card rather than a passport? If the ID card is made sophisticated enough to prevent making fakes, it is bound to be costly. If this ID card is "for those that frequently cross the border" ...what about those that don't cross frequently? Wouldn't a passport be the best bet? ...and it can be used for travels to other countries too.

Let's see . . . passports are required for countries besides Mexico and Canada. If it makes sense for the other countries, why would it not make sense for Mexico and Canada, then?

Sure, passports should have been required all along.

Last time I looked, you had to have a passport in all of Europe to travel. Why should we be different here. For my money, if it keeps just one illegal out, it is worth it all.
It burns me no end that schools are "required" to teach illegal immigrants. If we know they are illegal, why are they still here?

I'm confused by your statement. First, you come out with the fact that everyone has the right to express an opinion, and in the same breath, you want him to justify it. Well, he is entitled to his opinion. And he voiced it. Why should he now defend what he has the right to express?

Steve,
was kayo being asked to 'justify' the statement?
part of a conversation is being able to gently prod someone to keep talking on a point they have raised that interests you.
that point interests me as well. I live near what is arguably the BUSIEST border crossing point in the world - the SanDiego/Tijuana area. And I certainly want continued easy access to Canada and Mexico, but I remain very interested in just who else beside those two countries we are giving access to here in the States.
I personally would not be even slightly insulted if I am professionally asked for my passport when I ski Whistler or fish Ensenada.
Mike

Steve I would like to hear the reasoning behind the statement that Canada is "more lax" on who we let into the country. If based on facts then lets hear em.
