The executive vice president of the National Chamber of Freight Transport (Canacar)Refugio Muñoz, considered as positive the agreement reached this Wednesday between the governments of Nuevo León and Texas to return to daily inspections of the trucks that cross the Solidaridad-Colombia international bridge and hopes that it will be replicated with the other border entities.
After the immigration control and border security measures taken by the governor of Texas, Greg Abbottthis week (including the review of all trucks, sometimes by federal and state authorities), there were lines of more than 20 hours, which caused rejection demonstrations from the public and private sectors.
On his Twitter account, the American wrote: Today I reached a historic agreement with the governor of Nuevo León, Samuel Garcia. Together, we will improve border security measures. Since Biden does NOTHING, Texas will continue to secure the border and work with Mexico to find solutions.
After the meeting, the Canacar representative commented in an interview: “We trust that the solution will be found gradually. They have already negotiated with Nuevo León and hopefully the next entity will be Tamaulipas, where the greatest impact is seen. We trust that there will also be good will from the two governors.”
According to Muñoz, the negative impact is for both sides of the border because imports and exports are affected. In the Mexican case they were the crosses with Chihuahua Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas
“Texas and Mexico share 1,254 miles of common border and are linked by 28 bridges and international crossings. This figure includes two dams, a ferry and 25 other crossings that allow the transit of cargo, vehicles and pedestrians. Border crossings are of paramount importance to the economies of Texas and Mexico and have made Mexico Texas’ number one trading partner.
The most relevant crossings for the transfer of cargo, based on information from the camera, are: Nuevo Laredo, Ciudad Juárez, Reynosa, Colombia (where the random review will be returned), Ciudad Acuña, Camargo, Ciudad Miguel Alemán, Matamoros, Ojinaga and Black Stones.
