The illegal immigration crisis
Donald Trump has shown a very strict stance towards illegal migrants coming to America from Mexico. His dream of building a wall is still something he can only tweet about. While looking at the stats, 193 million immigrants crossed into the US via Mexico in 2018. These migrants are the reasons for various crimes and drugs trafficking in the US.
The main reason behind this increase in tariff is the no sign of cooperation from Mexico government. According to Trump, stopping illegal immigrants would be so easy for the Mexican authorities, but they just take their money and talk. In March 2019, The US-Mexican border has seen 100,000 border apprehensions, the highest monthly number in years.
America has signed an agreement with Mexico and indefinitely suspended the increased tariff on Mexico.
