Teamsters Present Oral Arguments in Challenge to Open Borders for Mexican Trucks(WASHINGTON) – Today, the Teamsters Union made oral arguments in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco, challenging the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) 2015 decision to open the border to Mexico-domiciled motor carriers for long-haul operations.
The lawsuit, contends that the FMCSA’s final report to Congress in January 2015 violated the Administrative Procedures Act because its conclusion—that Mexico-domiciled carriers operate at a level of safety equal to or greater than U.S. and Canadian carriers—is arbitrary and capricious in light of the admitted lack of significant data from a pilot program Congress required DOT to conduct.
The DOT Office of Inspector General (OIG) issued a report which acknowledged that it had been unable to develop statistically significant data in the pilot program. Due to the lack of significant data, the OIG could not have determined with any degree of confidence the future safety performance of Mexico-domiciled carriers.
