Mexican truckers claim unfair treatment


Well-Known Member
Drivers representing the top Mexican trucking association parked their trucks Oct. 4 on the Mexican side of the Matamoros-Brownsville border to protest the cross-border trucking program.

Parked along the curbs near the entrance to the Veterans International Bridge, the drivers demanded equal treatment for Mexican and American truckers, according to the Spanish-language website of the trucking federation CANACAR,

American truckers get preferential treatment in Mexico, while Mexican truckers on the U.S. side of the border get tickets for no reason at all, said CANACAR representative Alfredo Lartigue.

“We are protesting against the demonstration project that allows only 100 Mexican carriers to get into the U.S., and 100 from the U.S. to get into Mexico, because the conditions for these two groups are totally different,” Lartigue said.

What the heck? They are getting anything they want on our side! I know an illegal who has a CDL and is a known illegal!!! How can that be fair? If we broke a law we can lose everything, but they get by with it and then want more RIGHTS? This is total bullsh!t. When will we say enough is enough?
