WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A last-ditch effort to block Mexican trucks from operating within the US has failed, and Mexican trucks could be on US roadways as early as Thursday.

Up to 100 Mexican trucking companies may be operating within the US by Thursday as part of a pilot project in the US. Five groups, including the Teamsters and Owner-Operators Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) had filed an injunction to block the program, but it was unsuccessful.

"This is the wrong decision for American working men and women,” Teamsters general president James P. Hoffa said upon learning of the ruling. “We will now proceed to litigate this case on the merits. We believe this program clearly breaks the law. We will continue to fight for safety and national security in the courts and in Congress."
