The President Raises Taxes on American Citizens to Combat Illegal Immigration

The President is imposing a 5% tariff on goods from Mexico to combat illegal immigration, but this amounts to a tax on Americans.

Mexico will not pay the tariff. Instead, it will be paid by Americans via increased prices on goods coming Mexico. The President promises to escalate this tax on Americans each month unless Mexico shuts down illegal immigration.

Maybe this is bold, out of the box thinking, but let’s just understand that this will impose a cost on Americans, not Mexico. Americans buy large amounts of fruits, vegetables, vehicles, electronics, and even medical supplies that are manufactured in Mexico. All will be more expensive now.

The tariff revenue raised will not be redirected by Congress to border security either.
