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 migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied,..

....at which time the Tariffs will be removed. Details from the White House to follow.





Trump to threaten Mexico with tariffs over immigration: report

US President Donald Trump is preparing to threaten Mexico with tariffs to put pressure on the country to crack down on individuals seeking asylum in the United States, although some White House officials are trying to talk him out of the move, the Washington Post reported on Thursday.

Trump earlier on Thursday told reporters he would soon make a "dramatic" statement about immigration at the US border with Mexico where US authorities are struggling to deal with a surge of migrants and refugees, many of them fleeing violence and poverty in Central American countries.

Finally... an approach to the illegal alien problem that Democrats can't just block.

Seems like a common sense approach to the problem to me, since we can't easily build a wall or draft some basic legislation.

People coming into the thread to scream about the 5 cent increase in Avocados in 3,2,1...

Wow, if our government got a five percent tarriff based on street value of drugs coming over, we could have lots of money for roads.

This is what I voted for.

Two main issues IGNORED FOR GENERATIONS, literally.

That is, the Rise of China, humanevents.com...

And our unsecured borders.

Both are steeped in corruption with corporate fingers all over it.

Leftist are too naive and ignorant to know any better.

Actually, the tax is not just on citizens; illegal insurgents will have to pay more for their chemical-inundated avocados and strawberries also.

What other options would you propose since you sat idly by for the last 20 years as our borders remained unsecured?

It wasm't until Trump you suddenly give a crap?

Things are going to get very interesting. The world is watching, the entire world.

I know I've posted some things that question Trump, I am however all for these tariffs. We have basically
been taken advantage of for too long.
I do think he will lose some voters because some people can't see the forest through the trees (or whatever that saying it)

You obviously don't understand that illegal immigrants cost 1000x more than a small price increase on goods.

I had thought your ideology preached that more taxes was the answer to everything?

Or is this just selective outrage on your part?

...American consumers have something called "choice." We can choose to pay a higher price, choose not to pay a higher price and instead purchase something either domestically produced or imported from somewhere other than Mexico that isn't subject to the tax, or not purchase the items at all. That's called "freedom" and is the epitome of a domestic free market with the sensible protectionist policies of a nationalist in place. Until such a time when the entire Earth trades in US Dollars in their domestic purchases, "free trade" across borders is a fool's errand which should NEVER have been embraced. It does nothing for the US in the long run.

The tariff on Mexico is a glorious thing, but POTUS should have set it considerably higher, at least 10%, 15-20% ideally.

Look at the tag. If it says Made in Mexico, don't buy it.
No one is forcing you to.

Unless you're going to scream at the sky because you just can't function without your avocados .

This is an outstanding idea. We can start using the additional funds to pay for the barbarian horde at our border. Not to mention it creates more incentive to make things HERE where things should be made.

Good!

A smart "out-of-the-box" move.

He's serious about actually resolving a problem instead of just giving it lip service.

Trump is probably really hated now in DC.

Looks like Mexico will be paying for the wall !!

They'd be smart to build it themselves too 😆😆

Finally, a common sense approach!

He waited as long as he could. Money talks and bulls#it walks, and the American people have been putting up with the BS for far too long. It is out of control and somebody needs to get a rope around it. Thank you, Mr. President!

American citizens should stand with our president on this move and support this effort.

ETA: I will be driving a few extra miles to visit the local farmer's market for my tomatoes and I can do without avocados for as long as it takes.
