Mexican Truck to Enter U.S. Today Under Trade Agreement
The first Mexican truck to deliver goods in the U.S. interior in the long-delayed portion of the NAFTA free-trade agreement is scheduled to cross the border at Laredo today. The Associated Press reports the truck, owned by Transportes Olympic, will be making a delivery to Garland, in the Dallas area.
This trucking agreement complies with a provision of the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement. Some lawmakers and the Teamsters union are opposed, saying it will make U.S. highways more dangerous and cost American jobs. Here's KUT's reporting on when the deal was struck this summer.
