The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke has learned that the new Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) Secure Certificates of Indian Status will be accepted by the United States Department of Homeland Security as identification when crossing the border, by land, into the United States.

As well, the deadline of 1, Ohiarí:ha/June to use the new Secure Certificate for border crossing into the United States has been delayed. No new date has been announced.
