Members of the Minuteman Project protested at the Otay-Mesa border checkpoint where Mexican trucks began rolling into our country yesterday Sep 6, 2007 to travel throughout the nation with no oversight once they've arrived.
Members of the Minuteman Project Protest Mexican Trucks
Among the very findings they discovered were streams of trucks with bald tires that had just come through the checkpoints. It's good to see that they are being inspected so thoroughly that something as simple as bald tires weren't being caught.

Another Mexican Truck With Bald Tires
And Yet Another Mexican Truck With Bald Tires
Don't you feel safer now?
Then of course there were the Teamsters themselves who it was discovered by some of the Minutemen yesterday were handing out enrollment information to Mexican truckers to get them to join the union.
Teamsters Protest Mexican Trucks
So bald tires, unsafe vehicles, unions signing up foreigners and greedy businesses and politicians pushing this through... and some people wonder why American citizens and workers in this country are a little bit pissed off.

So, the teamster unions sue to stop, but when they lose they see it as a win-win as they have an untapped union labor pool. SLIME!
Guess their defense as stated in court was not that strong that they could even take a stand for a few days afterwards.

It's all part of the SPP program. It's up to congress to put a stop to it all, but they are so stupid they won't bother unless they fear losing their seats. People don't understand the ramifications of lax border security. It's not about the one or two possible Al Quieda that might slip through, it's everything else. Drugs, sick people, unsafe vehicles...

The Orange trailer in the photographs is a Schneider trailer. The company is based out of Green Bay, WI.

Very interesting indeed... because you guys steal our territory, and suddenly you ain't remember nothing of it... that states are our legal property, so, what's the big deal with the trucks? thousands of US trucks are in mexican roads today, bringing products so you can have more employemente in your factories, that's a very good point, you guys are triying to stop the illegal inmigration right? then, let us work and send you products to have a better economy. belive me, you are not doing us a favor, after all, you are enjoying almost one half of our territory.

I don't see what is so wrong with trucks from Mexico. If they are inspected and are cleared, there is no need to be crying about them. You people are so funny, you hate something just because it is associated with Mexico. The Minutemen hate everything besides Nazis like themselves PERIOD!

Hi all, know this is a bit old now but the clear pictures only show bald tyres on the trailer, tread mainly matters on the engine cab (front part of truck that pulls the trailers) for breaking and traction, back ones just help it roll along and not drag on the ground. Also why do they need to be holding so many American flags let alone any at all to protest against something foreign. Out of all the protests I have ever seen I have never seen flags involved. Protesters should be showing their message more than their countries flag.

Most of the trailers shown have LEGAL tread-depth tires on them! (Legal is at least 1/16th of an inch...) Kyle is wrong, though, the trailer tires DO help stop the truck, particularly with a full load. The shot of the cab-over, the only shot of a steer axle (which requires a 1/8th inch tread depth minimum) is not from an angle that would show whether or not the tire is (legally) bald...
I'm going by the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) rules here... Also an experienced trucker...
The orange trailer is (or WAS...) a Schneider trailer, as mentioned - but Schneider has been selling off its old trailers for years, and few of the new owners deign to re-paint... (or put new mud flaps on...)
If you're looking for bald tires, just stop into any truck stop - you'll find them! (and on American trucks...)
