President Trump will impose tariffs of up to 25 percent on Mexican imports if the kleptocracy south of the border doesn’t stop the flow of illegal immigrants traversing its territory to get to the United States.

Trump announced the trade penalties in a tweet late Thursday afternoon just after he posted video of more than 1,000 illegals surging across the border in the El Paso sector in the wee hours Wednesday. It was the largest group ever apprehended.

And Trump also announced that the administration will rewrite asylum rules as another means to discourage the invasion.

The Tariff
“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 president tweeted.

“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.”

Those details are in a statement at the White House website, which opened with a candid assessment of the border crisis and Mexico’s role in helping foment it.

“For decades,” the president said, “the United States has suffered the severe and dangerous consequences of illegal immigration. Sadly, Mexico has allowed this situation to go on for many years, growing only worse with the passage of time.”

The situation is “from a safety, national security, military, economic, and humanitarian standpoint” a “grave disaster.” And American taxpayer, the president said, “bears the extraordinary financial cost imposed by large-scale illegal migration.”

Now he said, “Mexico must step up and help solve this problem.”
