The President made clear in a tweet that Mexico bears responsibility for the crisis at the border. Despite the constant harassment coming from the Left, the President is continuing his work in helping to secure the border with Mexico.
In a late day tweet on May 30th the President said “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.”
The President frequently uses tariffs as a means to fulfill America First objectives. Mexico has allowed the illegal immigration crises to simmer and make its way to America.
While Mexico is not exactly thrilled to take in this mass migration mostly from Central America they are more than happy to send the migrant caravans our way. This has been permitted to go on by past administrations of both parties. President Trump on the other hand is determined to end the problem of open borders and amnesty for illegals.
The Chamber of Commerce which frequently supports Globalist policies is strongly opposed to this announcement by the President. They frequently oppose tariffs as well as the Trump agenda in general. President Trump is putting the American people before other considerations. Democrats and RINO’s want DACA and amnesty while President Trump wants a pro US immigration policy that benefits the American people.
While Democrats work to undo a fair election the President remains determined as ever to continue to fulfill his campaign promises. Border security was an issue President Trump ran on and one which President Trump remains determined to take care of. It’s time Democrats put their country first and work with The President to secure the border and build the wall.
