    You might check with some of the U.S. carriers who are in Mexico. Celedon has a terminal just across the border according to one of their driver with whom I spoke. I am sure that there are others. Several of them train inexperienced drivers. I don't know much about any of the Mexican carriers, but you might check with them to see if they have any sort of program.

    There has been a history of abuse by companies hiring immigrant truck drivers in the past, not to mention an increase in security concerns, that finding companies willing to sponsor foreign workers is more difficult now.

    Also, the U.S. Government has cut back on work visas by about one half, and finding a company now, is not going to be easy. They come under a lot of scrutiny, beside the fact we are in an economic downturn, and we do not have any driver shortage for the moment.

    That is not to say, good jobs and companies willing to help with visas are not available. I live on the northern boarder, and see companies up here working with people to fill positions in Canada/USA.
    Maybe as Gman suggested, your best bet is to research border companies near you in Mexico/USA.

    The actual reason for my response was because of my not being a US citizen, either, though I am eligible for citizenship.

    I just looked up your location. You have some fantastic beaches there. I'd trade places with you...now that winter is just around the corner!! :lol:
    Plus, I love those hott Latino ladies with a Spanish accent.

    That area should be loaded with Truck Companies. Let us know what you find out.
    Good luck, regards...Roadhog

    Don't need anymore illegals taking jobs away from US citizens......

    Maybe you could have an anchor baby born here, and when they turn 18 they could petition the INS for your citizenship........

    Big D. You are about to cross a line that you really don't want to cross. The man ask an honest question. His IP seems to be OK. As long as he follows the LEGAL route I for one have NO problem with him. If he ask how he could sneak across the border and steal a job from someone else because he would work for less..... then I would have a problem.

    Enough said! :evil:

    I wasn't born in the US, either.

    How come you didn't establish yourself as a permanent resident if you were here for 14 years? It probably would've made this much easier for you to do if you had went ahead and done that.
