President Trump on Sunday, June 2, referred to Mexico as an “abuser” of the United States and warned that if the country does not do more to stop the invasion from the south, its newly imposed tariffs on Mexican commodities would force Mexican-based companies to return to the United States.

The president’s tweets follow his announcement on Thursday that all Mexican exports will be subject to a new 5 per cent tariff – a tariff that would increase over time.

“The problem is that Mexico is an ‘abuser’ of the United States, taking but never giving. It has been this way for decades. Either they stop the invasion of our Country by Drug Dealers, Cartels, Human Traffickers, Coyotes and Illegal Immigrants, which they can do very easily, or our many companies and jobs that have been foolishly allowed to move South of the Border, will  be brought back into the United States through taxation (Tariffs),” Trump tweeted early Sunday.

“America has had enough!” he added.

Trump announced the new tariffs scheduled to take effect on Thursday, June 10. The president said all Mexican imports will be subject to a 5 percent tariff to press the country to do more to stop the migrants trying to cross the United States. However, Trump advised that the tariff proportion would gradually rise to 25 percent “until the issue of illegal immigrants is addressed.”

“Tariffs will permanently remain at the 25 percent level unless and until Mexico substantially stops the illegal flow of aliens coming through its territory,” the White House said in a statement this week.

At a news conference in Mexico’s Gulf port of Veracruz, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Mexico might be prepared to step up migration containment measures to reach an agreement with the United States, according to Reuters.

A delegation from Mexico headed by Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard will be discussing the conflict with U.S. representatives in Washington on Wednesday, and López Obrador said he was expecting good results from the discussions and an agreement to arise.

“The main thing is to inform about what we’re already doing on the migration issue, and if it’s necessary to reinforce these measures without violating human rights, we could be prepared to reach that deal,” López Obrador said.

President Trump said on Friday, “The Tariffs on Mexico are about stopping drugs as well as illegals from crossing our border. Time for Mexico to do their part and help STOP this crisis!”
