Mexico responds to Trump tariff threat will send delegation to Washington today to discuss border crisis

President Trump made a huge announcement that left markets jittery yesterday in regards to the Mexican border crisis. The President went to Twitter to announce a new 5% tariff on all products coming into the United States from Mexico until the country steps up their efforts to help with our border crisis.

“On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal immigrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the illegal Immigration problem is remedied.”

Trump continued “at which time the tariffs will be removed. Details from the White House will follow.

According to Reuters.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador responded in a letter he posted on Twitter, calling Trump’s policy of America First “a fallacy” and accusing him of turning the United States into a “ghetto,” that stigmatized and mistreated migrants.

“President Trump, social problems are not resolved with taxes or coercive measures,” he wrote, adding that a delegation led by Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard would travel to Washington on Friday. He did not threaten to retaliate, saying he wanted to avoid confrontation.

The Mexican President was caught off guard with President Trumps decision as he was in the process of ratifying the new trade deal USMCA with the Mexican Government.

President Trump has in the past pushed Mexico to help with the border crisis which is pushing our border patrol and ability to process the illegal invaders to it’s limit. Yesterday 1,000 illegals were rounded up in El Paso Texas including 63 unaccompanied minors. The Democrats in our congress have done nothing to solve the border crisis in fear of giving President Trump a victory on his biggest campaign promise.

It remains to be seen if today’s meeting will produce any lasting results. Mexico in the past has vowed to help and still the images remain of illegal invaders being bused through their country to become Americas problem.
