Hi! I’m Satnam Singh, I’ve been trucking for 25 years and my community of Punjabi Sikhs is very active in truck driving. I crossed the U.S.-Mexico border, got detained and now I own a trucking company that makes $200k a year. Ask me anything!
Hi! I’m Satnam Singh, and I’ve been trucking for 25 years. My community of Punjabi Sikhs are very active in truck driving, especially in California, where I live. We work day and night to deliver food, produce and everyday use items. Curious about life in the truck, the long journey I took from India to eventually cross the U.S.-Mexico border, or the detention center I stayed in my first few months in the U.S.?
AJ+ producer Shreen Khan joined me on a recent trucking trip for a video about our community and life on the road – she'll also be available to answer questions. My son, Harjit, will be typing out my answers.

Update: Thank you everyone for your wonderful questions! I enjoyed reading them and responding. Thank you for taking your time to watch the video and learn more about trucking and the Sikh Punjabi community. Right now I have to get back to driving. But if you have more questions in the future or would like to learn more, I would be happy to share my experiences.
