lol.. this is funny... i just started another thread on another board about this same thing. i am leaving for mexico Dec 27th, and not returning till Jan 2. i knew i would be ok gettign across.. just wanted to make sure my happy ass can get back come Jan 2nd. after alot of reading and seeing either Jan 1, 2006 and Jan 1, 2008, i finally called up Homeland defence from work and they said i am "technically" good till 2008. They said for now, if i cant get a passport b 4 i leave, just take my ORIGINAL birth certificate and my DL and SS card. So i am going to try and get one, but seeing how its the holidays and i am broke.. i dont know if i can afford it ($96 and wait 2 weeks) or ($180 for 24 hr turn around).
a guy at work has a wife who goes to mexico and america (was born in mexico, got married and lives here in AZ now, but goes to visit family alot), and he said he has yet to have a problem and still just takes his DL and Birth certificate with him. he said i shouldnt have a problem since i have no accent, and am a 6'3" blonde ahir blue white guy.
