MAGA: President Trump Slaps Mexico With 5% Tariffs

Oh yes…

President Trump Mexico Tariffs

President Trump announced Thursday evening that he would be imposing a 5% tariff on all Mexican goods coming into the United States.

The tariffs will be imposed as a punishment for Mexico failing to curb the massive amounts of illegal immigrants making their way to the southern border.

President Trump has long been frustrated with Mexico’s efforts, or lack thereof, to help lessen the flood of illegal immigrants coming through their country from Central America. Although the Mexican government has agreed to some measures, such as keeping asylum-seekers in Mexico until their cases can be adjudicated, they have done little else to stem the tide of migration.

Fox News has reported that the tariffs will increase to 10% on July 1st.

In fact, President Trump released a statement saying, “If Mexico still has not taken action to dramatically reduce or eliminate the number of illegal aliens crossing its territory into the United States, Tariffs will be increased to 15 percent on August 1, 2019, to 20 percent on September 1, 2019, and to 25 percent on October 1, 2019. Tariffs will permanently remain at the 25 percent level unless and until Mexico substantially stops the illegal inflow of aliens coming through its territory.”

President Trump also stated: “Thousands of innocent lives are taken every year as a result of this lawless chaos.  It must end NOW! … Mexico’s passive cooperation in allowing this mass incursion constitutes an emergency and extraordinary threat to the national security and economy of the United States.”

Specifically, the White House is looking for the Mexican government to step up enforcement along the southern border, target transnational smugglers and crack down on illicit bus lines transporting migrants, and align with the United States on a workable asylum policy.

Illegal crossings at the southern border with Mexico have reached crisis levels, with over 100,000 arrests taking place along the border in March alone. Immigration courts processing asylum claims are also facing a backlog of over 800,000 cases.
