WASHINGTON, May 6 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama’s adminstration will soon announce its plan to reopen the U.S. border to Mexican trucks and end a dispute that prompted Mexico to slap duties last year on $2.4 billion worth of U.S. goods, a top U.S. official said on Thursday.
“President Obama’s team has worked very hard to put a proposal together. We will be announcing it very soon,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood told lawmakers.
