Mexico must 'do more' to stop migrants: WH

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders said on Friday Mexico needs to 'step up and do more' to stop the flow of migrants crossing into the U.S. Trump said on Thursday he would ratchet up tariffs unless Mexico stopped people from illegally crossing the border it shares with the United States.

The plan would impose a 5% tariff on Mexican imports starting on June 10 and increase monthly, up to 25% on Oct.

1.

"Mexico makes a FORTUNE from the U.S., have for decades, they can easily fix this problem.

Time for them to finally do what must be done!" Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump has made immigration a priority for his administration, but he has been unable to push through changes in immigration policy or receive congressional approval to finance a border wall he has sought.

U.S. officials say they are dealing with record numbers of migrants crossing the border illegally, mostly Central American families fleeing poverty, violence and corruption in their home countries.

New tariffs could also threaten a trade deal with Mexico and Canada that the White House is pushing Congress to approve.
