Trump Raises Tariff On Mexico Goods To Curb Illegal Migrant Influx Into US

US President Donald Trump has announced tariffs on all goods coming from Mexico, demanding the country curb illegal immigration into the US.

In a tweet, Mr Trump said that from 10 June a 5% tariff would be imposed and would slowly rise “until the illegal immigration problem is remedied”.

Mexico’s top diplomat for North America, Jesus Seade, said the proposed tariffs would be “disastrous”.

Mr Trump declared a national emergency at the US-Mexico border in February to tackle what he claims is a crisis at the US Southern border.

The US President has long accused Mexico of not doing enough to stem the flow of people, and this is his latest attempt to put pressure on the neighbouring State.

However, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador responded saying he did not want “confrontation”.
