TUCSON (AP) Motorists passed easily through border checkpoints Thursday as tougher identification standards for U.S. and Canadian citizens went into effect without the backups and confusion some travelers had feared.

People entering the country will no longer be allowed to simply declare to immigration officers at border crossings that they are citizens. Instead, those 19 and older will have to show proof of citizenship a passport, trusted traveler card or a birth certificate and government-issued ID such as a driver's license.

The only problem is, illegal aliens DO NOT CROSS through border checkpoints stations, they sneak over the border somewhere else!!! Good grief.
