Opinion| It seems that the Senate Republicans who refuse to support President Donald Trump just won’t give it up. On Tuesday, they sent the President a warning explaining that they are not in support of his tariffs on imports from Mexico.
Last Thursday, President Donald Trump announced that he would be imposing a 5% tariff on all imports being brought into the United States from Mexico. The tariff is to be enacted on June 10th, and is to increase gradually until the influx of illegal immigrants making their way into the country comes to a halt.
“On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied at which time the Tariffs will be removed. Details from the White House to follow,” the President tweeted last week.
Via the Gateway Pundit:
Just hours after President Trump announced he will be imposing 5% tariffs on Mexican imports over illegal immigration, Mexico’s president Lopez Obrador sent Trump a letter begging for a meeting to work toward a solution. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sent President Trump a warning Tuesday afternoon and let him know that Senate Republicans do not support the tariffs on Mexico.
Mitch McConnell stated that Senate Republicans were given the opportunity to meet with White House representatives for lunch regarding the tariffs.
“There is not much support in my conference for tariffs, that’s for sure…Our hope is that the tariffs will be avoided,” McConnell stated. He continued, “Most of us hope that this Mexican delegation that’s come up here and discussed the challenges at the border and what the Mexicans might be able to do to help us more than they have will be fruitful and that these tariffs will not kick in.”

More than 100,000 illegal immigrants are coming into the United States every single month making claims that they are seeking asylum, “only to be released into US communities and Congress sits back and does nothing about the invasion,” according to the Gateway Pundit.
