I don't see tariff's on Mexican goods used to help enforce legal entry into the US as bad. The Mexican government is not stopping the flow of refugees from their side.
Maybe Trump could cut a deal with the Mexican government: help stop the refugees from the Mexican side, and then the tariffs on Mexican goods to build a wall won't be needed.
But if needed, tariffs to employ US citizen laborers on the border building a wall between the US and Mexico at least could put some people back to work, and at the same time decrease the illegal immigration.
Two birds with one stone?
