Amen to the US Supreme Court's unanimous ruling allowing Mexican trucks free reign on US Highways. Now that they can do more than 20 mile short runs to transfer points just across the border, Mexican firms may finally invest in upgrading their rigs. From an immigration perspective, I will fascinated to see whether the increased traffic and prosperity increases or decreases illegal pressure. The two schools of thought I've seen in the letters to the Editor and linked articles can cut either way, economic penetration and rising expectations can lead to increased immigration pressure or that rising real incomes (from lower costs brought about by transport efficiencies as well as by increased pay) over the Rio Grande might lower immigration pressure.
