May 06, 2005 — Senator Chuck Schumer met with North Country leaders yesterday in Watertown. The New York Democrat discussed the impact of proposed requirements for crossing the border with Canada. Last month, the Department of Homeland Security said everyone would need a passport to cross the border by 2008. The announcement caught most people by surprise, even President Bush, who said he read about it in the newspaper. The President has urged the government to look for other options.
