Trump announces tariffs on all Mexico goods in latest anti-immigration measure

US President Donald Trump has announced tariffs on all goods coming from Mexico in a bid to curb illegal immigration. In a tweet, Trump said that from 10 June a 5% tariff would be imposed and would slowly rise “until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied”.

President Trump has declared a national emergency to tackle what he claims is a crisis at the US southern border. Border agents say they are overwhelmed, but critics say they are mishandling and mistreating migrants.
