Enhanced Minnesota driver's licenses can be used to cross US border
FARGO - Minnesotans can now apply for enhanced driver’s licenses that will double as passports when crossing U.S. borders.
The roughly $10 extra charge for the license gives drivers proof of citizenship and fewer hassles when crossing into Canada or Mexico.
It also helps Border Patrol agents be more efficient. Since the ID has radio frequency identification technology, agents can scan the card before the person meets them at checkpoints.
