Oh man....jihad johnnies ready for action!
Who runs that threat matrix thread.
Illegal aliens should be deported.
Don't give me that BS about them doing jobs Americans won't.
It's not just trucks. Imagine these folks with supertankers. We can't keep such a close eye on those because lots of them are foreign.
Just great! /sarcasm
Well, that makes me feel a lot safer. Any of these guys need an ACLU or CAIR lawyer?
Scary - maybe when the WOT gets up close and personal we can get serious about winning in Iraq and strike the heads off a few copperheads at the same time.
Theere was an accident near here some time ago involving an illegal alien driving a semi. The guy was from Eastern Europe and could bearly speak English. He ran a stop sign and hit a car, killing a family. I don't recall that it was HazMat though, but it was still horrible. He had been hired by some company in Nevada. They claimed they didn't know he was illegal and he had his CDL. He had to have an interpreter for his arrest and trial. So how did he get a CDL?
CDL is a tough license to get. They have to at least speak and read English.
The utter stupidity of giving a gasoline truck CDL - HAZMAT license to a FOREIGN NATIONAL, no matter what their credentials state is appalling to me. It's akin to giving one of these licenses to Mohammed Atta (before 9/11). How the &@99 do they know the intent of these people? Freaking incredible. All this guy needs is a pack of matches and a place to light them next to a "designated delivery site".
Wow. Unbelievable that even in the face of these reports still little or nothing is done about our security. They caught 6 out of thousands.
To get the hazmat endorsement these days you need to submit your fingerprint, this corruption stinks, but thanks to NAFTA everyone who wants to drive in the USA can just go thru our friend Mexico and not have to wait or pay as much.
Something MUST be done to the cheap labor-adddiced employers (and members of government) who are willing to sacrifice America's safety for the sake of a buck.
