Trump’s border shutdown would hit avocados, beer and cars

Dereliction of duty The border crisis is Congress’ fault

Blunt said it's imperative that goods move across the US-Mexican border, and that's one reason why the industry supports the USMCA, the Trump administration's new trade agreement with Mexico and Canada that is created to replace NAFTA.

Trump complained that the USA has the "worst, dumbest immigration system in the world" and he's lobbying congressional Democrats to change it.

"I could do it in 45 minutes, we need to get rid of chain migration, we need to get rid of catch and release, and visa lottery, we have to do something about asylum". "We're going to close the border".

Mexican manufacturers are also highly integrated in United States supply chains and the closure could disrupt business for a variety of American businesses.

Mr. Trump said Mexico needs to do more, but he added that the nation's southern neighbor has started arresting migrants in the thousands in the past few days.

Trump administration officials say the MPP is a way to address the failings of the current system, which they claim encourages illegal immigration.

Far from trivialising a potential bilateral trade crisis, some experts say that focusing on the avocado helps drive home the impact Trump's decision would have on American readers.

He said a closing of the border would lead to immediate layoffs and result in shortages and price increases at grocery stores and restaurants.

Trump said Friday that there was a "very good likelihood" the border could be shut down this week, a move which likely would have economic consequences for both economies.

"I really wanted to close it", Trump said on Tuesday night at a fundraiser for congressional Republicans.

"We are looking at different options, particularly if you can keep those freight lanes, the truck lanes, open", he said.

Even absent the extraordinary step of sealing a national border, delays at border stations have been mounting as some 2,000 border officers assigned to check trucks and cars have been reassigned to deal with migrant crowds, Homeland Security officials said.

'We're hoping that Mexico will continue to step up like we've seen them them do over the last couple of weeks we hope that continues, and we can work with them so that we don't have to do that, ' Sanders said.

White House officials, meanwhile, are beginning to signal that Mexico is already doing more to stop border crossings - a development that could give the President a way to save face on the border closing threat without appearing to back down.

Shutting certain border stations or parts of them would not be unprecedented.

The U.S. auto industry imports $59.4 billion worth of parts from Mexico while exporting $32.5 billion worth of parts to assembly plants in Mexico.

The top imports from Mexico are automobiles, electrical machinery, medical instruments and mineral fuels.
