I’m Not Making This Up, You Know


Mexico has been unable or unwilling (or some of each) to enforce its own immigration laws at its southern border, and one result has been a spike in the influx of illegal immigration passing through to the U. S. Donald Trump threatened to use his authority to apply a tariff on Mexican goods unless Mexico began acting responsibly with regard to illegal migration.

At the last minute, Mexico gave Trump what he wanted, and Trump has placed the tariff proposal on hold.

Of course, the senator’s actual prediction was more along the lines of the President caving in to Congressional pressure after Mexico failed to agree to acceptable terms.

Some New Yorkers are better deal makers than others.
