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.
