Court: Mexican trucks program to proceed (9th Circus says 'Let 'em roll!')
AP on Yahoo ^ | 8/31/07 | Jordan Robertson - ap

Posted on 08/31/2007 6:32:37 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

SAN FRANCISCO - The Bush administration can go ahead with a pilot program to allow as many as 100 Mexican trucking companies to freely haul their cargo anywhere within the U.S. for the next year, a federal appeals court ruled Friday.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied a request made by the Teamsters union, the Sierra Club and the nonprofit Public Citizen to halt the program.

The appeals court ruled the groups have not satisfied the legal requirements to immediately stop what the government is calling a "demonstration project," but can continue to argue their case.

The trucking program is scheduled to begin Thursday.

In court papers filed earlier this week, the Teamsters and Sierra Club argued there won't be enough oversight of the drivers coming into the U.S. from Mexico.

They also argued that public safety would be endangered in a hasty attempt by the government to comply with parts of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

The trade agreement requires that all roads in the United States, Mexico and Canada to be opened to carriers from all three countries.

Canadian trucking companies have full access to U.S. roads, but Mexican trucks can only travel about 20 miles inside the country at certain border crossings such as ones in San Diego and El Paso, Texas.

The famously liberal 9th Circuit thumbs its nose at the Sierra Club and the Teamsters Union and sides with business? Me thinks Sierra and the Union didn't ante up enough bribe money.

Many of these Mexican trucks are the cast-offs of American companies; trucks whose economy of upkeep has exceeded their worth. In Laredo one day on a delivery to our terminal there,I noted ten year old cab-overs with Mexican registry with parts of the body hanging-off and dragging and on the ground. Were I to pull into a weight scale in such condition I’d be shut down, fined, log book sodomized, and defamed by every other trucker in line to be scaled.

Lord help those who are driving alongside these trucks.

So, so far today I have read the courst say -

Students suing because of in-state tuition for illegal aliens have no standing

Mexican trucks can roll anywhere they want in the U.S.

The government cannot enforce our immigration laws by having employers check Social Security numbers

We are losing the battle people!

Mexican trucks already travel up to 100 miles inside the US wherever they want anywhere along the border. Now the rest of the country gets to share the joys of being a Border community.

“Mexican trucks already travel up to 100 miles inside the US”

AP is saying 20 miles?

‘Canadian trucking companies have full access to U.S. roads, but Mexican trucks can only travel about 20 miles inside the country at certain border crossings such as ones in San Diego and El Paso, Texas.’

When I lived in TX 6 years ago it was 100 miles. I think it still is. Wouldn’t be the first time Ap got it wrong.

The ninth circuit is a collection of the most extreme liberals. The wikipedia entry on them elaborates ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Court_of_Appeals_for_the_Ninth_Circuit

“According to the most current count, the Ninth Circuit has the highest percentage of active judges appointed by Democratic presidents, with 59%. Until 2003, this percentage was much higher; a political stalemate over judicial nominations subsequently kept several vacancies on the court for several years.

Critics point to this preponderance of appointees of Democratic presidents as evidence that the court has a liberal bias. “

If one wants to see what our country would look like with all three branches run by the RATS. They need not look further.

This is just outrageous and extremely foolish. What possible benefit does this bring to our nation? Maybe lower shipping costs for a few companies?
Just another way to bring US wages down. Anyone that thinks safety standards won’t be compromised is taking more than one drug.
I don’t care about NAFTA and all the stupid theoretical econometric arguments.
We are a sovereign nation and our laws should put our citizen’s interests at the top of the list.
This calamity in the making does not do that.

50 million more illegals and 200 million more anchor babies. If you don't like that idea, you are a racist, bigoted, homophobic, know-nothing, unappeasable, mouth-breathing, anti-American, 2 percenter fringe conservative with neo-nazi leanings (and your mother wears army boots). The Department of Homeland "security" will shortly send out a certificate.

First of all, there is a 40 ton Gross Vehicle Weight without permits. If ANY combination vehicle of 26K exceeds this without permits, there are stiff penalties. Also, there are specific limits of axle weights designated and controlled by each state DOT.

As an OTR trucker, I assure you, that any Mexican truck that pulls into a scale in any state that does not conform to that state’s DOT regulations, he/she will be paying some hefty penalties and may be shut down or impounded. States throughout the US will be performing heavy monitoring of Mexican trucks.

Regulating of the trucking industry provides high revenue for the states due to fines.

From the American truckers out there, it will be open season on the Mexican truckers. They are not wanted nor welcomed. I pity the Mexican truckers starting in this program. I predict lots of accidents where Mexicans are run off of the road.

“stiff penalties”

I generally here and feel what you’re saying. I wanted to grab that quote that just happened to be from you, and ask the rethorical question of...

What stiff penalties did the 9/11 hijackers receive?

You’re right. And I’d be willing to bet (though of course you know I’m not betting man) that the trucks will be decaled by door, and people will know which haulers are which.
