MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican truckers are suing the United States for $6 billion over Washington's refusal to allow Mexican haulers onto its roads as required under the NAFTA trade pact, a trucking association said on Monday.
About 4,500 trucking companies represented by Mexico's National Cargo Transportation Association (Canacar) are involved in the lawsuit, according to Canacar
“The World Trade Organization (WTO) is a flawed international organization whose agreement with America limits our ability to act in our own best interest. It is a non-democratic, secretive global bureaucracy that usurps domestic sovereignty in the name of a trade agenda.”

Up here in the N.E. corridor that happens all the time with French Canadian truckers. They can't read or speak english. Out of NJ the Chinese drivers get their licenses with no regard for the Federal regs. If you where being facetious I missed it. If you were actualy saying that it can't happen then I disagree!
The TSA Hazardous Materials Endorsement Threat Assessment Program conducts a security threat assessment for any driver seeking to obtain, renew, or transfer a hazardous materials endorsement (HME) on a state-issued commercial drivers license (CDL).
The program was implemented to meet the requirements of the USA PATRIOT Act (pdf, 848Kb), which prohibits states from issuing a license to transport hazardous materials in commerce unless a determination has been made that the driver does not pose a security risk. The Act further requires that the risk assessment include checks of criminal history records, legal status, and relevant international databases.
If you seek to obtain, renew, or transfer an HME on your CDL, you must apply for a security threat assessment. TSA rules require you to begin applying for the security threat assessment at least 30 days prior to the expiration of your CDL
