(Host) Senator Patrick Leahy says he’s glad that the Department of Homeland Security won’t require passports at the U.S.-Canadian border until next year.

A law adopted after September eleventh will require anyone seeking entry to the United States to show a passport to prove their identity and citizenship.

The Bush administration wanted that requirement to go into effect this year. But Leahy says the Homeland Security Department has backed off, and the new rule won’t be enforced until next year.
