Bewildered Mexican Truckers

The U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) appropriation of $46.7 million to enhance entry check points for Mexican trucks in the states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California has bewildered everyone in Mexico, since there are no plans by Mexican truckers to go into the United States.

Still, DOT secretary Norman Mineta insists, "President Bush's Administration is committed to put in practice, in an expeditious manner, the Chapter on trucks and buses under the North American Free Trade Agreement."

Texas will get most of the funding, followed by California, Arizona and least, New Mexico.

The question remains, who are these facilities for?
