Opening the Country To Mexican Trucks

Once again taking the side of Mexico, the Bush administration urged a federal appeals court yesterday to let Mexican trucks cross our border and freely travel anywhere in the US.

The Teamsters Union has requested that the Ninth Circus Court stop the program which could begin tomorrow.

The administration's argument is that to not allow this will strain diplomatic relations between the US and Mexico. Aren't relations already strained? Why doesn't Mexico seem concerned that its continuing brazen illegal abuse of our border will strain relations?

This should be a no brainer. Allowing access and free travel anywhere for these foreign carriers is opening us up for more abuse by a nation that has shown zero respect for our laws. Still, one never knows what judicial jabberwocky will emerge from the Ninth Circus.
