Mexico Border May Close This Week

Mexico Border May Close This Week

The president's declaration was made known through his aides, and on Saturday, March 30 the USA state department revealed that Trump intends to cut off aids to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador; three countries also known as the Northern Triangle. A closure would have enormous economic consequences on both sides of the border, disrupting manufacturing supply lines and the flow of goods ranging from avocados to cars.

"The whole system incentivizes the abuse of the asylum system and the lodging of baseless claims to enter the United States", he said, according to the notes.

A group representing General Motors Co, Ford Motor Co and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV said in a statement that "any action that stops commerce at the border would be harmful to the US economy, and in particular, the auto industry".

Mexico "made a big step over the past two days", he said, adding that they would have to continue if they don't want the border closed.

Steve Barnard, president and chief executive of Mission Produce, told Reuters, "You couldn't pick a worse time of year because Mexico supplies virtually 100 percent of the avocados in the usa right now". She sent a letter to Congress last week repeating numerous Trump administration's demands, including a request to quickly deport Central American minors that cross the border alone.

Laredo, Texas Mayor Pete Saenz, who is also chairman of the Texas Border Coalition, told A.P. that "closing the border would cause an immediate depression in border state communities and, depending on the duration, a recession in the rest of the country".

For another, statistics like these - how quickly USA consumers would feel the pressure of a border closure when they go to make breakfast - only capture one part of the U.S.

With a massive service game, he will be hoping to push Federer to the limit and test his endurance. I used 42 bags just this week alone, think about how much plastic we are wasting yearly.

Federal immigration authorities are now releasing migrants as fast as they are taking them in. "The humanitarian situation can not be ignored and the security situation can not be ignored".

Retailers are also raising alarm bells, according to officials with two groups that represent hundreds of USA retail firms.

"Look, Democrats are leaving us absolutely no choice at this point, we've already had to move roughly 750 personnel from ports of entry", she told reporters. "They said if it's a complete shutdown, no one comes in or out because the border will just be closed". "So, we are truly in a crisis", Johnson said during an interview with MSNBC last week.

"It's not as if Mexico gains much by helping the United States on security issues", he said.

"If you start with this nonsense of closing the border, there's no longer an argument", he said. "I have to have security", he said. The economic effect alone would be huge because Mexico is America's No. 1 trading partner.

Which brings us back to avocados.

"I think the answer is we can and people are looking at different options, particularly if you can keep those freight lanes, those truck lanes open".
