MEXICANS' TRUCKS DEBATE * USA
* Union Hypocrisy On Immigraton As Teamsters Try To Block Legal Mexican Truckers At The Border
Washington,DC,USA -kxmc.com, News/sayanythingblog.com -Aug 29 2007: -- A few things worth noting before you read the article: This isn’t the Bush administration’s plan. This is part of NAFTA, which was passed under the Clinton administration (though I don’t doubt that Bush supports it)... The Mexican trucks aren’t any more dangerous than American trucks given that they must pass American DOT standards in order to travel US roads... Keeping that in mind, bask in the glowing light of organized labor’s self-serving hypocrisy: There are a lot of things about NAFTA I don’t like, but this isn’t one of them... America's unions support amnesty for illegal immigrants and oppose any effort to stop more illegal immigrants from coming into this country... Unions also oppose America's NAFTA treaty with Mexico, which promised Mexican trucking companies access to our entire country, when they're hauling loads that originate in Mexico. This access was supposed to have been granted to Mexican truckers by 2000, but it¡s been delayed by protectionist union lackeys like North Dakota's Byron Dorgan who don't want those Mexicans competing with American truckers enrolled in the Teamsters Union... So my question for the union supporters is this: Why oppose allowing Mexican truckers into America legally, under the NAFTA treaty, in order to conduct legitimate commerce but support Mexican immigrants coming into this country illegally? Put another way, why do unions support foreigners who come here and thumb their noses at our law but oppose foreigners who come here at the express invitation of our laws?... I'd really like an answer to that one. Because it's clear, to me, that allowing Mexican truckers access to the American market is a good way to help enrich Mexico's economy and thin out the number of people fleeing poverty in that country by forcing their way into ours. In fact, I'd say it's immoral not to grant these Mexican truckers access to our economy. After all, competition among business and the unencumbered flow of commerce is good for all of us, Mexican and American alike...
