Patience is wearing thin for importers and exporters who say a bottle neck on commercial trucks at the border will cost consumers a lot more for produce and products coming in from Mexico this Easter weekend.

The delays are all due to additional safety inspections mandated by Governor Greg Abbott of trucks bringing products into the United States.

Normally it would take trucks 30 to 40 minutes to cross the border. But it is taking some closer to 12 hours. The chokepoint in international commerce is causing a lot of concern for an already broken supply chain in the country.
