U.S. Auto Industry Will Practically Shut Down If Trump Closes US-Mexico Border

Mr Trump traveled today to Southern California to meet with local law enforcement officials and tour a section of recently rebuilt fencing he cites as the answer to a surge of migrant families coming to the United States in recent months. "I think it looks fantastic - very see-through, so you're able to see the other side, which is a very important element".

"Many parts of the USA economy would be impacted", said Charlie Chesbrough, senior economist at Cox Automotive, which runs Kelley Blue Book and Autotrader.

In court papers filed late Thursday, a coalition of attorneys general in Democratic-leaning states argued the Republican president's plan deprives their offices of federal dollars meant for law enforcement purposes and threatens environmental resources along the border.

Trump shut down the federal government for more than a month the longest shutdown in U.S. history and later declared a national emergency to free up billions of dollars to build his wall.

"We're going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border, and we're going to do it one way or the other", he said in the February address.

"The administration's actions here demonstrate a shocking disregard for the Appropriations Clause, which protects Congress " s "exclusive power over the federal purse, '" the House says in its lawsuit.

But those youths and children should be sent home, said Jenks, because the 2008 law only protects trafficked victims, such as forced prostitutes, not youths and children who have parents in the United States or who are willingly smuggled up to the border. "We are going to give them a one-year warning". "I may shut it down at some point but I would rather do tariffs".

The president has claimed that the spike in migrants seeking to cross the border from Mexico constitutes a threat to the country's "core national security interests" and justifies declaring a national emergency.

The president has backed off from shutting down the border, instead saying he'd slap tariffs on cars coming to the USA from Mexico.

He also said he was considering putting a 25 percent tariff on vehicles from Mexico if the country didn't do more to stem the mass migration from Central America.

While sounding tough, Trump's surprise shift this week to tariffs from the previous threat to close the border is a major climb down. A native of Sacramento, she has spent more than a decade in D.C. reporting on USA elections, Congress and foreign affairs for publications including Newsweek, Congressional Quarterly and Roll Call. "Mexico "Trump-and-Tweet-proofed" its auto sector", and the White House "would need to get very creative to impose auto tariffs on Mexico". American importers pay the tariffs at the border and then must decide how much of the higher cost they can pass along to USA customers.

Previously, the Mexican Government freely handed out humanitarian visas with the goal of allowing people to stay and work legally in Mexico.

The leaders of the US, Mexico and Canada signed the successor deal to NAFTA in November after more than a year of negotiations. But there again, that can hit USA companies, such as General Motors, which is a major car-maker in Mexico. "We were told that she had been lying there for two hours when a Border Patrol agent found her".

Although the wall - his signature campaign promise - remains unbuilt, Trump declared that at least 400 miles of the border barrier would be erected over the next two years even as he tried to blame Democrats for a lack of progress on the wall.

The tariffs, he suggested, would make a border closure unnecessary.
