Kansas City is now the Mexico/US border. Thanks, Jorge.
” “containers nonstop from the Far East by way of Mexico,” through “a ships-to-rail terminal at the port of Lazaro Cardenas in Mexico,” then up “the evolving trade corridor” to Kansas City, Missouri, where they would have their first inspection.
A Kansas City SmartPort brochure explains further: “Kansas City offers the opportunity for sealed cargo containers to travel to Mexican port cities with virtually no border delays.””
A new way for China to bomb the U.S. ‘What’s that ticking I hear, Miguel?”
An extension of the notorious Trans-Texas Corridor. Will this thing ever go away?
Welcome to Free Republic :)
I was watching CNN, and employers are practically dancing in the street over H1-B visas. Can't remember the exact amount, but someone with the same skills as an American/legal resident is quite a bit lower.
Now what does Uncle Sam plan on doing with all these displaced workers?
In all honesty who cares where Mexico decides to inspect cargo incoming to their Country?...... That is the purpose of the Mexican Customs in KC is to inspect cargo entering Mexico from the US. If inspected in KC then it doesn’t have to stop and wait customs clearance at the border...
The *Powers that be* realize the opposition to the TTC and will use the influx of 1000s of nasty Mexican trucks to *persuade* people otherwise.
If you can’t beat them, beat them some more.
Our nation is being run by corrupt people who don’t care what we think.
I think it might be impossible to save America Inc. from being irreversibly damaged.
My tagline says it all.
This is why we NEED Duncan Hunter as President. These little deals will kill us all in the long term. He is the only candidate that sees the problem with unfair trade with China and giving Mexico the keys to the kingdom. He wants to keep American jobs here.
I’m glad the neo-con’s came along, it was sooo boring living in a sovereign nation without a global economy./sarc.
I don’t know what to say.
More on Mexico leasing “sovereign territory” in KC.
Since we continue electing globalists, I guess it’s time to develop a ‘Republican’ attitude...
I’ve spent years defending the Constitution and sovereignty of the US, to no avail...
So tell me fellow Republican FReepers, How do I get on the bandwagon to make a fast buck off my fellow Americans while they’ve still got some money to spend???
They have been talking about this since I was in college 30years ago. It is no secret.
“take jobs away from U.S. longshoremen in Los Angeles and Long Beach who earn $140,000 a year and replace them with Mexican laborers at $10,000 a year”?
Reminds me of an old “All in the Family” episode in which a newly-hired female forklift driver was going to suggest that a ramp up from the warehouse floor would allow her to pick stuff outa trucks in one smooth move, until Archie complained that moving stuff from the dock to the floor was his entire job. Vivid memories of an old US News story that compared $16 Mexican Chrysler welders output and quality to $36+benefits ($55/hour?) Americans...
