    Trump announces tariff hike on Mexico until immigration surge is 'remedied'

    New York Republican Rep. Peter King says the president needs to think about the unintended consequences of his proposed tariff hike on Mexico.

    Mexican President Andres Manuel López Obrador has pushed back at President Donald Trump's move to impose a blanket 5 percent tariff on all Mexican goods.

    In a pointed letter released Thursday, López Obrador lashed out at Trump for what he described as the U.S. president's "turning the United States, overnight, from a country of brotherly love for immigrants from around the world, to a bolted space, where there's stigmatizing, mistreatment, abuse, persecution, and a denial of the right to justice to those who seek -- with sacrifice and hard work -- to live free from misery."




    López Obrador said that “social problems are not solved with duties or coercive measures,” and alluded to the United States’ history as a nation of immigrants: “The Statue of Liberty is not an empty symbol.”

    He added in the letter, which he provided a link to on his Twitter account, that in contrast to Trump's approach, Mexico is doing its part to avoid migration through its territory as much as possible, without violating human rights.

    “Peo*ple don’t leave their home*lands for plea*sure but out of ne*ces*sity," the Mexican leader said.

    López Obrador said in the letter that his foreign relations secretary was leading a delegation to Washington D.C. to speak with Trump administration officials in order to seek a peaceful and negotiated solution to Trump’s threat to impose stiff tariffs on goods from Mexico if the country doesn’t do more to slow irregular migration.
    He noted that his outreach was not to be interpreted as a sign of weakness.

    "I’m not a cow*ard or timid, but act out of prin*ci*ples. I be*lieve in pol*i*tics which, among other things, was in*vented to avoid con*fronta*tion and war."

    President Trump on Thursday abruptly announced a new 5 percent tariff on Mexico beginning in early June, saying the levy will "gradually increase" until the ongoing illegal immigration surge at the southern border is "remedied" and illegal migrants "STOP."
    "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," Trump wrote. "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."

    Fox News was told the tariff on all goods by land, sea, and air from Mexico will hike to 10 percent on July 1 -- and potentially increase substantially from there.
    "If Mexico still has not taken action to dramatically reduce or eliminate the number of illegal aliens crossing its territory into the United States, Tariffs will be increased to 15 percent on August 1, 2019, to 20 percent on September 1, 2019, and to 25 percent on October 1, 2019," Trump said in a statement released later by the White House on Thursday. "Tariffs will permanently remain at the 25 percent level unless and until Mexico substantially stops the illegal inflow of aliens coming through its territory."

    The statement added: "Thousands of innocent lives are taken every year as a result of this lawless chaos. It must end NOW! ... Mexico’s passive cooperation in allowing this mass incursion constitutes an emergency and extraordinary threat to the national security and economy of the United States."
    The Associated Press and Fox News reporter Gregg Re contributed to this story.

    The Mexicans turned out over 100,000 in downtown Chicago a # of years ago to protest. They probably could do it again if things got heated up. Our sovereignty is at stake here. Better fight it out now than later when the demograghics are even more against us.

    SO YOU CAN KEEP GETTING BILLIONS FROM DRUG CARTELS ??

    Mexican President: Illegal Aliens Have the Right to Invade the United States - David Harris Jr




    President López Obrador wrote a letter that was released by the Wall Street Journal in which he says that the United States does not have the right to refuse entry to millions of illegal aliens coming in from Mexico and Central America. This was his answer to President Trump’s announcement on tariffs starting at 5% and reaching 25% by October. For some strange reason, he seems to believe that the United States will continue to import $372 billion in goods every year. That’s not true. More people will buy cars made in the United States because they will be a better bargain and the only import we get from Mexico that we can’t supply ourselves is avocados. We can live without them.

    From Breitbart News,

    President López Obrador’s May 30 letter, provided by the Wall Street Journal, claimed a migrant’s “right for justice,” saying:

    President Trump. Social problems are not resolved by taxes or coercive measures. How do you transform the country of fraternity for the world’s migrants into a ghetto, a closed space, where migrants are stigmatized, mistreated, persecuted, expelled and the right for justice is canceled to those who tirelessly seek to live free of misery?

    The letter also suggested that poor Mexicans have a right to migrate into the United States: “It is worth remembering that, within a short period of time, Mexicans will not need to migrate into the United States and that migration will become optional, not compulsory.”

    Obrador’s letter did not formally reject or accept Trump’s demand that Mexico block the huge Central American migration into the United States, nor did it directly denounce Trump’s threat to impose rising tariffs on Mexico.

    Instead, it repeatedly claimed poor people have a right to move into the United States.

    In one section, the letter appropriates the Statue of Liberty as a supposed symbol of legal migration, saying “The Statue of Liberty is not an empty symbol.”

    The Statue of Liberty had nothing to do with immigration, legal or otherwise. It was a gift from France to celebrate our constitution and our culture. The poem about giving us your poor was added much later.

    "Social problems" are not resolved by breeding in the dirt, pushing drugs, raping and murdering each other either you DOLT!

    Social problems that YOU created are not solved by DUMPING your problems on others backs to pay for while YOU line your pockets with drug money.

    Shut that whole border down and get these cretins off our soil.

    "IT IS NECESSARY" THEY "STAY IN THEIR HOMELANDS" AND SOLVE THEIR OWN PROBLEMS LIKE NORMAL HUMAN BEINGS AND STOP LEECHING OFF OF OTHERS FOR DECADES INSTEAD OF LEAVING LIKE COWARDS, DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY, AND MOUTHING OFF IN OUR STREETS!

    GET THEM ALL OUT AND SHUT THESE FAILED DAMN PROGRAMS DOWN!!!

    NO REFUGEES
    NO ASYLUM
    NO TPS
    NO BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP
    NO ILLEGAL ALIENS
    NO DACA
    NO MORE LINE JUMPERS!


    NO MORE EXTORTION MONEY TO THESE CORRUPT COUNTRIES!

    IT HAS SOLVED NOTHING!

    ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES AND PUT IN THE HARD WORK TO EFFECT CHANGE ON YOUR SOIL.
    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL

    I'm not convinced this will happen until I actually see it. Besides that, as I've said before, it's our job to protect our own sovereignty and control our borders. We can't depend or rely on other nations to secure our borders for us because it is not in their best interest to do so, especially in the long-term.
