Congressman Henry Cuellar is proposing a plan that would allow Mexican railroad crews to operate trains in the United States through downtown Laredo and unto the KCS's train yard in East Laredo. Currently, Mexican crews can handle trains only to the middle of the international railroad bridge where either a KCS or UP crew then takes over. Cuellar is pushing this proposal that can lead to many layoffs from our communifty. If this proposal passes the only thing that would be accomplished would be placing our citizens  endanger. Under the Federal Rail road laws any foreign crews can not be held as accountable as the KCS and UPRR crews. Therefore, if any derailedments happen the Mexican crew will not be accountable and our community will be in danger. Many hard working men work for the rail road who take multiple of trainings and exams to be employed for us to allow foreign crews to take their hard working careers away. We do not know what training if any these foreign crews may or may not have. I as ask you to please sign this petition against the proposal so we can keep our hard working American crews employed.
