You send companie's to mexico,china, japan. now you bring Mexicans in to drive trucks.
India taxi driver's and outsource phone operations oversea's. So many american job's taken away what job's are Americans going to be able to do? if every American has a degree you still need a skill to fall back on just incase you lose a job or can't find one for your degree.

GOOD OLD ALLARD BEING A RETARD. Yea lets let the mexicans drive across the border with semis and not check them out or require them to be legal. All this does is allow illegals to hang out in the back of semis to come to america and basically ALLARD saying its cool. SHUT THEM DOWN< YOU DRIVE ON AMERICAN STREETS YOU HAVE TO HAVE A VALID AMERICAN DRIVERS LICENSE> OR ATLEAST A PASSPORT> BUT THESE MEXICANS DONT HAVE SQUAT EXCEPT A DECEASED PERSONS SS# and false ids

Completely agreed. It drives me nuts how they always say, "well, we do the jobs that you guys won't do". I bet if you went down to a homeless shelter, you could find a homeless teenager or young adult who'd be more than happy to scrub toilets or flip burgers. I have a friend who was in contruction for the longest time, then his company started hiring what were more than likely illegals. Eventually he lost his job because they could pay two illegals what he was making by himself.

Just another republican taking kickbacks from big business. The large corporations are the ones that want the mexican truckers because they're so much cheaper. The silly republicans are just pawns for big business. sad

Well, i guess i'm not voting for wayne allard next round. Once he loses the next elections, i'm sure he'll feel right at home having a mexican moving van show up at his house and taking him his family and belongings to mexico.

Hasta' wayne, you illegal alien lover.

Politicians all around are bad. Guess we'll just have to keep track and pick the lesser of two evils.

Typical republican. All they have done is export our jobs, import cheap labor which depresses wages for what jobs are left, cut taxes for the rich and services to the poor (whose numbers are growing), and screw the average hard working American middle class. On top of that he continues to spout the "great lies" that are the Republican talking points on the war. Things are getting better and all's well with the war. What a crock. And by the way, we were told, among other grand fibs, that the war would be won in "weeks not months", by the Dickster Cheney himself. It's about time we have a mechanism to immediately remove from office anyone who tells bald face lies to the public, especially when they do it repeatedly in the face of overwhelming evidence that they are lying.

Who is monitoring the mexican trucks? The mexican DOT? There is no mexican DOT. They have no drug testing. mexico doesn't have a CDL program. mexico is so corrupt and Wayne Allard is dumb enough to allow this. No more votes for Allard or any other republican or democrat. The only reason I am keeping my republican party affiliation is so I can vote in the primary for Tom Tancrado.

While I understand your frustrations and logic, if we removed every single politician from office who told a bold faced lie, how many politician's would we have left? I can't think of any politician that hasn't told one. All politician's lie about something or another, it's just part of what they do. Our job as American citizen's is to pick the lesser of two evils knowing that at some point or another a politician is going to lie or do something that we don't like.
