Lawyers for OOIDA and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and their allied bogus safety groups such as Public Citizen were in the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, DC, on Thursday, Dec. 6, trying once again to get a court to stop the Mexican cross-border trucking program.
This is not the first time these groups have sought help from a court using frivolous and baseless accusations, but win or lose, it will be their next to the last chance. However the three judge panel, composed of Justices Judith Rogers, Karen LeCraft Henderson and Brett Kavanaugh rule, the losing side will roll the dice and request a hearing before the full court.
The claims being made by OOIDA is that Mexico has failed to institute regulations and enforcement programs that are even remotely similar to those in the United States and because there would be no relevant corresponding reciprocity for U.S. truckers. This of course, has been thoroughly debunked by our research and posting of the relevant rules and regulations Mexico has in place for their transportation industry on this website. And as is often the case when OOIDA speaks about Mexican trucks, well, Jim Johnston and company have a slight problem with the truth. It seems to continuously elude them.
