    Here Come More Drugs?! Mexican Trucking Companies To Travel U.S. Roads In 60 Days

    Associated Press article - http://www.guardian.co.uk/worldlates...436341,00.html

    Bush Administration pilot project will allow 100 Mexican trucking businesses to place their cargo carrying trucks on roads throughout the U.s. in around 60 days. This is connected to the North Aberican Free Trade Agreement.

    U.S. inspectors are supposed to insure safety by inspecting each truck as it crosses the boarder. They are supposed to check to make sure each Meican truck driver knows English, isn't carrying illegal freight, and that they are insured by American companies.

    Union leaders, members of Congress and advocates for public safety are heavily criticizing the Bush trade decision.

    I say this is an open door to make drug trafficing easier. This is happening at a time when we have little control over our boarders, and we have all but lost the war against drugs.

    Inspecters will not be able to keep drug cartels from Mexico and elsewhere from slipping drugs over the boarder. Once these trucks hit our roads, i predict that it will only be a short matter of time before drivers are busted throughout our nation...and narcotic associated problems significantly increase.

    What do you think?

    Wonder if these thousands of Mexican trucks will be required to be smogged, and if the companies will pay transportation taxes or fees for upkeep on our roads. Somehow, I get the feeling that the answer is NO in each instance.
