Mexico Making 'Significant' Effort to Stop Illegal Migration to US - White House

America would run out of avocados in weeks if Trump shuts border with Mexico, grower warns

America would run out of avocados in weeks if Trump shuts border with Mexico, grower warns

The White House admitted earlier in the day that he had no "specific timeline" for the border clamp down he said he'd authorize unless Mexico takes action to 'immediately stop ALL illegal immigration'.

Sanders also said Mexico must ramp up its efforts to curb illegal immigration into the U.S.

Trump has threatened to close the border before but not acted on the threat.

But how effective is focusing on one fruit?

"If trade was interrupted, USA producers would suffer crippling disruptions of their supply chains, American families would see prices spike for food and cars, and us exporters would be cut off from their third-largest market". Running out of avocados kind of sounds like one.

"It's a handy shorthand way of illustrating how an abstract issue like worldwide trade actually affects people's lives day by day.it gets people to understand the interconnectedness of the global marketplace and demonstrates the benefits of globalization".

"Sure it is going to have a negative impact on the economy". "After many years (decades), Mexico is apprehending large numbers of people at their Southern Border, mostly from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador", he said.

Businesses, educational institutions and people who live and work on both sides of the border in El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, are on alert if President Donald Trump follows through with his threat to close the southern border. As to why, I'll let the president tweet in his own words. "Sometimes it's not a ideal little anecdote that encapsulates everything".

Mexico is the largest importer of U.S. exports of refined fuels like diesel and gasoline, some of which moves by rail.

In 2018, the U.S. imported $346.5 billion worth of goods from Mexico, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

"We gotta stay away from that rhetoric of closing the border".

Waltz said he believes there's a middle ground when it comes to addressing the issue at the southern border.

Trump reiterated claims on Tuesday that certain countries in Central America have been taking money from the US, while offering nothing to the U.S.in return. But the other rough half is of trade is trade in intermediate parts. "They're taking advantage of the United States".

The three "don't do anything for us", he said.

It's hard not to laugh when White House press secretary Sarah Sanders defends President Trump's fanciful and counterproductive attempt to "close the border" by saying Trump's No. 1 concern is the safety and lives of Americans.

"I'm totally prepared to do it", Trump said.

It has not been made clear when Trump plans to put a closure into effect. Many who do make their way to the US border. "But now I'm wondering whether I should go or not." he said.

López Obrador said he would not have a confrontation with the United States. That's more important than trade'. "It's not necessarily where immigrants want to emigrate to". Mexico is the United States' third largest trading partner after Canada and China.
