President Donald Trump yesterday threatened Mexico with tariffs if the country does not deal with the illegal migration crisis and increase immigration enforcement actions, CNN reports. The first round of tariffs are scheduled to begin June 10 at 5% on goods imported from Mexico. If Mexico does not comply with Trump’s demands, the percentages are set to increase each month until reaching the permanent 25% level in October. It is unclear if the United States-Mexico-Canada trade deal will be impacted by this threat.
