The Trucks Are Coming

CNN reports a truck carrying more than 25 tons of dynamite exploded Monday in northern Mexico, killing at least 23 people and injuring more than 140, a government spokesman said.

Of the 140 injured, 30 suffered critical wounds and five were listed in extremely critical condition, said David Aguisn, spokesman for Humberto Moreira, the governor of the state of Coahuila.

Meanwhile, Mexican trucks are crossing the border freely and where they're bound is anyone's guess.

Who is checking for a license, registration, insurance? Who is making sure they understand English, American roadsigns and traffic regulations. Who is checking to make sure they are well rested and sober? Who is making sure the vehicles meet all safety and emissions standards? Has anyone done or are we even able to do back round checks on the drivers?

These are just a few of the questions that should be answered before we permit a mechanized invasion of our borders. However, it seems that our president is determined to push his Mexican agenda down the throats of American citizens.
