Uhhh, how bout we make sure these trucks are not filled with......hmmmmmmmm....not human or drug cargo, or worse yet...bombs first? Who gives a rats ass how long it takes as long as America and it's citizens are fully protected. Also, hispandering government, let's make sure these trucks are safe and well maintained.

How about this/-- We put a high import tax on all goods from previous American factories who moved to Mexico for cheap labor. Make the tax high enough that it would benefit the company to relocate back to the U.S..

This would drastically reduce the number of trucks crossing the border. It would also provide jobs for Americans.

Cornyn wishes to speed up the Mexican truck traffic so the Mexican trucking industry is able to steal American trucking jobs faster!Obama signed the bill 2-3 weeks ago,silently without fanfare.

Ray Lahood, Transportation Secretary took a little trip to Mexihole over the July 4th weekend. I've come to dislike holidays, as our govenment always pulls chit in hopes that we won't know what they've done. Look at the Nobama Heath Care bill and Dirty Harry/Porky Pelosi forcing a vote on Christmas Eve..... I contacted one of my senators as to the trucking situation. He wrote back that they'll be keeping an eye on loss of American jobs, illegals on board, etc. Well hell, I'm keeping an eye on his job and if I have my way, he'll be looking for a new one!
