Nothin' To See Here, Folks.

Move along now...

Ahh. The sound of more American jobs flushing down the toilet -

1st Mexican truck rolls across border under cover of darkness
Official: 'Logistical Trans-Corridor of North America' open for business

The first Mexican truck authorized by a Bush administration program opening U.S. highways to trucking companies from south of the border crossed into the U.S. this morning at approximately 1:50 a.m. EDT at Laredo, Texas, headed for North Carolina, according to a report from Trucker.com.

*snip*

In attendance were Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters, together with her Mexican counterpart, Luis Téllez, secretary of communications and transportation, and José Natividad Gonzáles Parás, governor of Nuevo Leon.

There Peters officially blessed Transportes Olympic as the first Mexican trucking company that would be allowed to operate freely in the U.S. under NAFTA.
God bless America. I'm glad my tax dollars are being used to sell out more jobs to other countries.

And then, ironically, there is this story about the same time:

Mexican Dynamite Truck Explodes; 37 Die

PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Mexico (AP) - A truck carrying explosives for the mining industry exploded after running into another vehicle in northern Mexico, killing at least 37 people, a federal police official said Monday.

Oops!
But they're just as safe as ours. :)
And how can any politician say they are tough on terror when they increasingly open our borders, unchecked, to outsiders?

Are we going to be a second-world country first, or are we going to go straight to third-world?.

I'm contacting my senator.
