Do you need a passport to travel to Mexico from US?

As of 2020, if I enter and leave Mexico Tijuana from the US will the border require me to show passport? Can I show my birth certificate and ID as an alternative? I was told they can not hold us since we are citizens of the us.

    Get a passport card.

    If traveling by land or sea transport you can use a passport card or an enhanced driving license.  Only a few states issue enhanced DLs.

    If you fly to Mexico you need a regular passport booklet.

    Being able to enter Mexico and return to the USA using your ID and birth certificate ended in 2009.

    Americans traveling to Mexico must present a valid US citizen. Passport Anyone traveling by sea can present a passport card and a valid driver's license in order to return to the United States. However, travelers must verify with the chosen destination whether these documents are accepted.

    Yes, but you can use a passport card at a land border when it's open again and travel is allowed.

    A passport is required any time you cross a country border whether you're going in or coming out.

      It might even be harder now but not because of a passport issue: https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/news/2020/03/19/u-s-mexico-officials-look-ban-non-essential-travel-across-border/2874497001/
