Duncan Hunter in the News
Duncan Hunter visited Michigan and sticking to his buy and support American platform, he purchases a F-150 Ford Pickup.
"Some may call this a cheap political stunt," quipped Hunter, "but my wife will call this an expensive gesture."
I like it! It has been said Hunter will not ride in foreign made cars. The Republican Michigander reports that Hunter gave a good speech and stayed to answer all questions. Yes, he stayed and answered all questions. The blogger writes in his comments
"I don't know how else to explain it except to say he "gets it." If he raises name recognition, and explains his voting record, he has a chance to get back those Reagan Democrats and socially conservative blue collar independents which voted out the GOP (with the help of the base staying home) in 06."
I have said all along that Hunter's trade issues will appeal to both parties and I believe he can get those Reagan Democrats back on our side.
Next we have Duncan locking horns with our President. Duncan Hunter wants a secure America. He does not just talk it, he acts.
U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-El Cajon, introduced legislation Thursday to tighten rules for freight trucks entering the United States under the North American Free Trade Agreement, to prevent terrorists from getting into the country and protect American motorists from unsafe truckers.
Mexican truckers may cross the border now. But presently, they are allowed to travel only within 25 miles of the international boundary. Under a Bush administration program, 100 Mexican trucking companies would begin traveling throughout the United States next month.
Unrestricted travel on all U.S. highways was promised by 2000, under the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. But lawsuits and disagreements between the countries put the promise on hold.
"Unrestricted cross-border trucking presents potential terrorists, drug smugglers and other criminals the opportunity to quietly enter the United States with unidentified cargo and contraband," Hunter said.
Hunter's bill, dubbed the NAFTA Trucking Safety Act, would require Mexican truck drivers to undergo background checks. And it would give U.S. law enforcement officers access to various records that enable them to verify a driver's identification and check for criminal history.(LINK)(Underlining by me)
I can support that. When Hunter talks about securing our country he means it. He built a fence in his district and cut illegal crossings by 90%. Now he is fighting to keep America safe and strong. Help him out if you can.
