Trump has threatened to impose tariffs on Mexico.

The President announced it in a tweet on May 30th which said the tariffs would be imposed “until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our country, STOP.” (Twitter source here).

The tariff threat certainly got the attention of the government of Mexico, and Foreign Minister Ebrard was dispatched to negotiate in Washington.

Also, Mexico is cracking down more on the hordes of non-Mexicans crossing its territory to get to the United States. It even stopped a caravan at the Guatemalan border.

This means that Trump needs to keep up the pressure. The U.S. cannot allow Mexico to be a wide open gate for the whole world to enter the United States.
