Jul 22 '17 at 2:27 comment added phoog @larry909 the birth certificate goes about as far as one can go to prove citizenship without showing a passport. If you renounced citizenship, for example, the passport would be cancelled or at least entered into a database of invalid documents; the same does not happen with birth certificates. If the guy had truly had serious doubts about your citizenship, he would not have let you in.

Jul 21 '17 at 17:02 comment added Dennis Actually the fact that Canada hasn't changed its own law to require Americans to have a WHTI document to enter is probably as good an indication as any that the US very reliably takes its own citizens back without one. All the CBP can do is make reentry as inconvenient as possible.
