Bush gives Mexican truckers access to American highways
Is this a by-product of the recent Montebello Summit where the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America and the North American Union, were top-of-the-agenda topics for Bush and his Canadian and Mexican counterparts?
Associated Press covers this important story:
The Teamsters Union said it will seek an emergency injunction from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to block the Bush administration’s plan to begin allowing Mexican trucks to carry cargo anywhere in the United States. Saturday will mark the beginning of the authorization of expansion of Mexican truckers beyond border areas. Mexican trucks are required to stop within a buffer border zone and transfer their loads to U.S. trucks.
“What a slap in the face to American workers, opening the highways to dangerous trucks on Labor Day weekend, one of the busiest driving weekends of the year,” said Teamsters President Jim Hoffa.
