    SAN ANTONIO — Congress resumes consideration of the U.S.-Mexico cross-border trucking pilot program this week when the Senate takes up the Department of Transportation’s appropriations bill.

    “The talk on the streets of Washington is about how the Obama administration treats cross-border trucking will be a litmus test on bilateral relations with Mexico,

    I bet you would be hard pressed to find ANY USA truck drivers that are enthusiastic about driving their rig into Mexico. I would be very suspicious of any truck drivers that would be open to driving into Mexico....especially right now with all the violence down there.

    Next...how does it benefit the AMERICAN PEOPLE to have Mexican trucks crossing into our country? There is nothing being made in Mexico that we cant make here.

    Mexico would impose trade sanctions against us, that’s great news if it means they would stop illegally exporting their people to this country to send U.S. dollars back to mexico.

    It needs to be stopped as it was suppose to be over a year ago and Mary Peters should be in jail!

    If they impose trade tariffs on products from the US, may I recommend that we imposed some sort of tariff on the unfettered importation of human and drug products from their country? After all, all the profit gets back to Mexico and all the other countries without our knowledge or control.

    This needs to be stopped just as we stopped it before with the help of the protests at the border. And let us not forget the phone calls and e-mails to the politicians.

    I would not even care if there was good in it for the American people and the country. I think it is just wrong and very dangerous. Just another way of possibly propagating more drug and human trafficking and cross border violence as what has been happening in Mexico.
