However, Belitsky asks that travelers be prepared to present documentation such as valid U.S. passport, U.S. birth certificate, or Naturalization certificate to avoid
delays. And he encourages people to secure a valid passport within the year
to help expedite traffic at the Tunnel. But Belitsky says, "You do not need a
passport before next January to travel between Detroit and Windsor."

Recognizing the unique relationship we have in this region, the Tunnel is
currently supporting the Departments of Homeland Security and State in
developing a special card for people who frequently travel between Detroit and
Windsor. However, people can now apply for a NEXUS card which will allow them
expedited travel across the Tunnel. "NEXUS is a pre-approved clearance
program that has succeeded at the Detroit Windsor Tunnel. NEXUS travelers are
given a special card that allows them to enter a NEXUS dedicated lane and
avoid the waits." The Tunnel has added a special feature to NEXUS and
provides NEXUS approved travelers a NEXPRESS(R) card upon request, that allows
them to enter the tunnel through a special lane, avoiding even further delays,
often making travel between Detroit and Windsor seamless.

For now! I have been listening to Canadians complaining about the long lineups to get their passports. These same people had a year of warnings. Likely people will again wait untill the last moment. The law will not change. Canadians are classified as any stranger to the USA and will be required to have a passport. If you plan on going to the USA, be prepared. It would be no different then any other country.

Have'nt we heard of this kind of branding before?

Government monopolized corporate controlled access to travel due to right wing xenophobia. Is this not what fascism is?

So next year when people crossing by vehicle need passports, will Nexus be eliminated?
