Mexican President harshly rebukes Donald Trump’s tariff threat

The bickering has intensified in the face of a very real immigration crisis.

As illegal immigration into the United States soars to unprecedented levels, Washington DC has been derelict in their duties to address it.

President Trump made immigration an enormous part of his 2016 campaign – a successful bid – and is now trudging through the DC Swamp in an effort to sway all manner of creatures to join him in reforming the American system.  The democrats have been predictably obstinate, thanks to the “resistance” ethos that has tainted the waters of bipartisanship.

This friction has prevented the President’s “big, beautiful” wall from being constructed, and has caused major backlashes in the mainstream media every time that the Commander in Chief lifts a finger in the direction of Mexico.

Now, under the threat of an escalating tariff should they not assist in the reform, Mexico is lashing out against this latest attempt by President Trump to bring the crisis under control.

Mexico President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Friday that Mexico won’t respond to U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat of coercive tariffs with desperation, but instead will push for dialogue.

A day after Trump’s threat to impose a 5% tariff — that could increase incrementally to 25% — on all Mexican imports, López Obrador seemed convinced that Trump just needed to be informed of all that Mexico has been doing to slow illegal migration, and he dispatched Foreign Affairs Secretary Marcelo Ebrard to Washington Friday.

His language was stern.

“We are carrying out our responsibility in immigration policy,” López Obrador said at his daily morning news conference. He made no promises of new action to stem the flow of mostly Central American immigrants transiting Mexico to reach the U.S. border.

While immigration reform has been in demand for some time, the recent advent of migrant “caravans” has put an enormous strain on American border authorities over the course of the last two years.
