Trump will sign executive order today on Mexico tariffs, Pence aide says

U.S. President Donald Trump responds to questions from reporters after an event centered on a proposal to end surprise medical billing in the Roosevelt Room at the White House in Washington U.S

Last week Trump announced that, starting from Monday, June 10, a five percent tariff would be applied to all goods from export-dependent Mexico, rising by five percentage points each month to a high of 25 percent, until U.S. demands on migrant controls were satisfied.

Mexican and US officials are set to resume talks in Washington on Thursday aimed at heading off punitive tariffs on Mexican goods as President Donald Trump called for Mexico to take more action to curb migration at the southern USA border.

Mr Trump wants Mexico to stop the hundreds of thousands of mostly Central American migrants who have been seeking entry to the USA this year.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told administration officials that Trump should hold off on imposing tariffs on Mexico until the president can personally make his argument to Republicans in Congress, according to people briefed on the conversation. Neal said Trump's action "commandeering USA trade policy to influence border security" is an abuse of power.

"We're not done yet", Ebrard said. "I'm optimistic we can achieve that".

According to the Washington Post, Mexico would send thousands of troops to their border with Guatemala under the proposal in order to prevent more migrants from travelling through the country on their way north to the us border.

Those individuals worry about the negative economic consequences for Americans and believe the tariffs, which would likely prompt retaliatory taxes on USA exports, would also hurt the administration politically, according to these officials who were not authorised to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

With such a plan in place, the United States could send Guatemala asylum seekers to Mexico, and those from Honduras and El Salvador to Guatemala.

'They've made a lot of progress over the course of the last few days. The US is already locked in a tit-for-tat tariff war with China.

"We are committed to enhancing the U.S. -Mexico economic relationship and favor more trade, not tariffs".

Mexican Foreign Affairs Secretary Marcelo Ebrard arrives for a news conference at the Mexican Embassy in Washington, Tuesday, June 4, 2019, as part of a Mexican delegation in Washington for talks. Beyond the fact that the president did not specify what, precisely, he wanted Andrés Manuel López Obrador's government to do, his threat appeared to undermine a wide variety of his own political objectives.

"We think that a deal will be reached because that's the best for Mexico and the United States to maintain relations that are friendly ... that there be communication and an understanding".

Many lawmakers are anxious about the potential impact on cross-border trade and increased costs for United States businesses and consumers on imported Mexican goods.

The considering delaying the tariffs as talks continue, according to people familiar with the matter.

The president has railed against the flow of migrants coming through the southern border, which have risen to a 13-year high, with almost 144,300 migrants apprehended in May.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Friday that Trump has been in regular touch with Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on tariff negotiations.

So, to impose tariffs on Mexico, Trump must declare a national emergency - and an emergency declaration means a vote in Congress on a resolution of disapproval.
