A proposal to implement mandatory fees, for crossing into the United States from Canada or Mexico, was cut out of the Senate immigration reform bill but is still being analyzed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). According to Fox News Latino, strong opposition is being faced in some areas that border Canada, while southern states have shown less concern but hope that fees would be used to improve local infrastructure.

A two dollar entry fee is already tagged onto tickets when entering the country by air or sea and some locations in Texas do currently toll travelers at international bridges. The Texas tolls are collected by the bridge facility, not U.S. officials.

Concerns have been expressed by authorities and locals that a toll would slow down the already backed up crossing at San Ysidro.
