The TTC is planned to span the state of Texas from Laredo, on the Mexican border, to Texarkana, on the border with Arkansas, to continue north to Canada. The projected cost is $183 billion over fifty years, with no American companies expressing interest in financing it.

If no one wants this, then don't f------ build it!

Shows us again, Don't mess with Texas.

If the Government wants this thing to be built, forcefully, then they shouldn't make texas pay for it. This is something thats going to benefit these three countries, not Texas only.

They're planning on taking over a half a million acres by imminent domain for right of way for this monstrosity, and allowing a foreign consortium to run it as a toll road for the next 50 years.

This is what they're planning...

Unbelievable. Guess it'll make it easier for illegals to go straight up to Canada though if they are willing to pay the toll. I want to see Texans come out in full force and stop this crazy idea in it's tracks. The Texas I spent 20 years in would not allow this to happen......

What a stupid plan. It sounds like the people in Texas have no say in this pork barrel piece of turd.

These aren't illegals crossing over. They are truckers with a temporary visa.

And how many of those trucks are loaded with drugs and/or humans? They won't even be logged in until they reach the 'inland port' of Kansas City.

You should do some research, man. The plan is they don't even slow down until the 'inland port' in Kansas City. Which, BTW, is designated as sovereign MEXICAN territory...
