One of the issues that Luz Robles worked on as a member of the Mexican Advisory Board (CCIME) during her tenure as a "Consejera" (2006-2008) was the Mexican trucks issue.
See the document at ufire.net for more information about Ms. Robles' links to Mexico.
Of course, she sided with Mexico - in spite of the fact that she is a U.S. citizen.
The issue has returned.
This is how Jerome Corsi, of wnd.com, described what was in the works last January:
"Department of Transportation officials and the U.S. trade representative's office are in Mexico this week negotiating final details of a renewed Mexican truck demonstration project with the goal of allowing foreign long-haul loads to roam U.S. roads by summer."
Creating jobs on both sides of the border?
An article by Phyllis Schlafly gives a very nice summary of points as to why this is not a good thing for the U.S.
The article is at: http://www.eagleforum.org/
One of the most interesting points of this article is the claim that NAFTA is not a treaty at all, but merely a law passed by Congress.
If that is true, and it appears to be so, then Congress certainly has the ability to curtail this new threat to American jobs and our trucking industry.
At the end of her summary of the issue, Ms. Schlafly reminds us to contact Congress about this outrage.
This is a very good recommendation.
