I'm not amazed at all by this. Like everyone in DC bammer is taking taking corporate bribes to support mexico. Maybe he's even taking bribes from the mexican govt.

America is all about corruption today.

It's good for the chamber of commerce. It's bad for the Teamsters. It's good for greedy corporations. Bla, bla, bla. When the hell is our government going to start making their decisions based on what's good for Americans? We'll lose jobs. We'll lose safety. We'll lose tax revenue, etc. etc. What are these idiots thinking of now? This is just another slimey political move.

Just another way to sneak in illegals. And just another way to kill off citizens in traffic accidents.
Bush destroyed this country and Obamy is burying it.

You are 100% correct! Does Obama have a clue about anything except taking vacations? He is a danger to our country,even the liberal democrats are starting to wise up to the fact that he is a snake oil salesman.

Bush opened the border to Mexican trucks. Obama stopped it in exchange for Teamster support in his election. Now he is breaking his promise to them and all of America to keep them out! His "Dream Act" failed to pass, maybe Obama is trying to look more pro-Mexican to all the disappointed illegals.

I was sitting in a resturant having breakfast with some of the fellers. One is a truck driver two "were" construction workers. After hearing the trucker complain, one old boy looked up and laughed. All he said was"welcome to our world". Illegals will do the same to trucking as they did to construction. Deflate wages and benifits for American citizens. My advice is to buy guns,ammo and a woodchipper. Find a friend with a catfish farm and set up shop.

The commuity agitator is taking more jobs away from Americans and giving them to FOREIGNER again but this time is is doing it on American soil!!!

I wonder how many Americans will be killed by the mexican truck drivers and how many Illegal aliens will be stashed in their trucks.

Time for Americans to stop the madness!!!

If the American trucking unions don't feel compelled to stop this then 'F' them and feel free to flip the American bird to any mex tin-can rolling by on the road.

It's the unions on one side bringing in and protecting the f'ng illegal mex (SEIU, Teamsters, Carpenters) and only the truckers' union side that seems to feel that they are getting screwed so if their leadership has turned liberal traitor like the other unions then let them screw their union brothers and see if anyone feels American enough to fight back?

New Study Shows Foreign Workers Gain Jobs While U.S. Workers Lose Them
A new study from Northeastern University shows that between 2008 and 2010, 1.1 million newly arriving aliens gained jobs while U.S. household employment declined by 6.26 million.(Reuters, Jan. 20, 2011) The study, commissioned by Reuters and performed by the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University, reviewed U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and Census Bureau data for 2008 through 2010.

The study shows that aliens who are still landing jobs tend to be young, uneducated, unskilled or semi-skilled. Of the 1.1 million aliens landing jobs in the past two years, 42 percent were under 30. Yet, the unemployment rate for all Americans without a high school diploma in this age group is extraordinarily high, about 27 percent to 29 percent. Particularly noteworthy, the study found that many of the jobs obtained by these aliens were in the construction industry—jobs that are routinely sought by American workers.(Id.)

Professor Andrew Sum, Director of the Center for Labor Market Studies, said it was fair to estimate that around 35 percent of these workers were undocumented or illegal. "Employers have chosen to use new immigrants over native-born workers and have continued to displace large numbers of blue-collar workers and young adults without college degrees." said Sum.“One of the advantages of hiring, particularly young, undocumented immigrants, is the fact that employers do not have to pay health benefits or basic payroll taxes.”(Id.)
