Please support this bill Mr. Thornberry!! Seems silly that we are securing our borders in the US but at the same time letting Mexican nationals run trains thru Laredo into Texas? Please protect American jobs and Texas workers by placing American engineers and trainmen at the controls of these trains. Congestion and delay still exists in Laredo and this has not eliminated congestion but it has threatened our jobs and safety. Please act on this and support continued border security by stopping this practice.
This bill protects American railroad jobs in America. Mexicans are being allowed to take our jobs. Mexico does not allow Americans to operate trains into mexico because they care about their citizens jobs. Mexican railroad employees do not work to the same safety rules and standards as US rail workers.
