President Trump says he’ll slap tariffs on all Mexican goods unless Mexico stops migrants from crossing the border into the U.S. The tariffs would go into effect in 10 days and increase every month after that, up to 25%. Mexico is one of our largest trading partners. Cars, cauliflower, TVs, and avocados are some of the things that could become more expensive if the tariffs go through.
