On Saturday, Teamsters President James Hoffa wasted no time in taking a verbal tire iron to Bush's plan.

President Bush has "sucker punched" American workers and threatened national security by opening the nation's southern border to Mexican truckers, Teamsters President James Hoffa said Saturday.
