Truckers Protest Trial Plan To Permit Mexican Trucks In U.S.

Dozens of truckers are waving signs and American flags at a San Diego border crossing to protest a pilot program that will allow up to 100 Mexican trucking companies to freely haul their cargo anywhere in the United States.

The U.S. Transportation Department is set to begin issuing operating permits as early as today.

For that to happen, the department's inspector general must give his final blessing and Mexican authorities must issue permits to U.S. trucking companies to go anywhere in Mexico.
