WASHINGTON - It won’t matter if you’re a college student looking to party in Puerto Peasco for spring break or a tourist shopping for inexpensive prescription drugs in Nogales, the Bush administration wants U.S. citizens traveling to Mexico to have a passport to return home.

The proposed passport requirements, unveiled Tuesday by the Department of Homeland Security, would be phased in by the end of 2007 and would apply to U.S. citizens visiting Canada, Bermuda and the rest of the Americas. Canadians and most Mexicans would be required to produce a passport to enter the United States.

The measures, officials said, are part of the federal government’s strategy to further secure the nation’s borders after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, a move that could be felt most in Southwestern and Northern border communities.
