Kudos to The Teamsters...

It was reported this afternoon that the Teamsters union is filing suit against the Bush administration's ridiculous plan to open the border to long haul Mexican trucking companies. "The Teamsters, other trucking and safety organizations and dozens of lawmakers have sought to block the program, which they contend is unsafe. The union is seeking an emergency injunction from the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco." [Link]

This effort to open up the border for Mexican trucking is part of a much larger effort by international shippers to avoid the unionized West Coast U.S. ports for the non-union Mexican ports. Just another part of NAFTA agenda.
