Vote Follows Reports of Mexican Truck Explosion That Killed 34 People, Injured 150
Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa urged the Senate to block funding for the Bush administration's illegal Mexican truck program.
Hoffa said the program threatens highway safety and national security. The danger posed by trucks from Mexico was made clear by the truck explosion that killed at least 34 people and injured 150 in Northern Mexico on Sunday.
A vote to block funding for the pilot program is expected to occur in the Senate on the afternoon of Tuesday, Sept. 11.
"Today is the sixth anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil," Hoffa said. "I don't see how any patriotic American could vote to allow these dangerous trucks to cross our borders and travel freely throughout our country."
"We don't know who's driving these trucks and we don't know what they're carrying," Hoffa said. "Weapons that could be used in a terrorist attack might be in the backs of these trucks."

More at *******www.theuptake**** Minnesota's US Senate seat is very much in play this year with Republican US Senator Norm Coleman's approval ratings hovering well below the 50% level. You may remember Senator Coleman as the designated "attack dog" on TV for the Republican party during the 2004 Democratic National Convention. During his 5 years in office he has strongly supported the Bush administration on nearly every major issue, which has made him the target of many progressive groups.
On Wednesday, protesters pretending to be representatives of the health industry, big oil and other "special interests" were lined up with thank you signs outside Republican Norm Coleman's US Senate Campaign Headquarters.
Inside, Republican Senator Coleman announced his bid for a second term. Coleman emphasized his optimism and his record, both as mayor of St. Paul and as a senator, in an effort to differentiate himself from likely Democratic nominee Al Franken.
Sports were mentioned frequently, particularly hockey. Coleman took several swipes at Franken without mentioning him by name.
Coleman said he was going to "work to bring people together to get things done" and attempted to portray himself as a non-partisan.
Al Franken is competing with Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer for the Minnesota Democratic Party's endorsement for US Senate. Here is his stump speech to a Senate District convention in Eagan, a Twin Cities suburb. Franken won most of the delegates at this particular convention.

"We can save thousands of lives and conserve billions of dollars for health care with this one stroke – and we can do it this year," said Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.), chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee and sponsor of the legislation.
