White House petition - Stop using Homeland Security funds to seize imported vehicles.

The Department of Homeland Security spends a shockingly disproportionate amount of its budget not on security initiatives, but on customs seizures. In particular, importers of grey-market vehicles have been targeted by monies taxpayers have intended to be used to secure our country against terrorism and terrorist activity. We call upon the Executive Branch to immediately cease this wasteful activity, and furthermore to change the DOT/EPA exemption time on grey-market vehicles from 25 years to 15 years (to match the vehicle regulations of Canada), recognizing that the 25-year rule was enacted due to support from special interests such as Mercedes Benz North America.

I signed it too, but it is definitely lacking a lot of signatures given the deadline!

While I'm all for having this pass, nothing and I repeat nothing will happen with it. Legalizing JDM cars is probably towards the end of priorities for this country. Something something economy sucks, corporate corruption etc might be more important.

Who cares about the legalization efforts.

What bothers me is the agency trying to enforce it is supposed to be doing something else.

This.

Why are we spending money to crack down on grey market cars when there are so many other problems?
