Cross-border trucking: Full employment program for ambulance chasers

The San Diego Reader posted this tongue-in-cheek comment about opening the border to dangerous Mexican trucks:
"I understand that (U.S. Rep. Duncan) Hunter wants to protect American jobs, but does he have any idea how many unemployed lawyers there are in California right now? More Mexican trucks means more Mexican truck-related accidents on California's roadways, and that means more Mexican truck-related accident lawsuits and legal proceedngs in California's courtrooms. And at the end of the day, if you're a congressman looking to close up California's massive budget deficit, you're better off having an employed lawyer than an employed trucker."
