President Trump on Thursday evening announced that a 5% tariff will be imposed on all Mexican imports beginning June 10th and will gradually increase until the illegal immigration stops. Looks as if Mexico will be paying for the wall after all.
TRUMP: “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.”
Record number of illegal aliens are flooding over the US-Mexico border with no relief in sight.
Earlier Thursday President Trump tweeted a shocking video of illegal aliens crossing the border in El Paso in the middle of the night.
Just hours after President Trump announced he will be imposing 5% tariffs on Mexican imports over illegal immigration, Mexico’s president Lopez Obrador sent Trump a letter begging for a meeting to work toward a solution.
“Mexico’s President Lopez Obrador asks Trump to have U.S. officials meet with the Mexican foreign minister in Washington on Friday to seek a solution that benefits both nations,” Reuters reported.

President Trump is up against a Democrat-led House and activist judges who are stopping him at every turn so he announced tariffs on Mexican imports.
Mexico is already begging President Trump for a meeting. This is how it’s done.
