Mexican officials in tariff talks with US

Monday, June 3, 2019

Fighting to stave off punitive tariffs announced by Donald Trump, a senior Mexican delegation was set to begin high level talks today in Washington, where it will be pushed to do more to hold back Central American migrants.

Trump says he will apply tariffs of 5 percent on all Mexican goods on June 10, and increase the rate in coming months to 25 percent if Mexico does not substantially halt illegal immigration across the U.S.-Mexican border, Reuters reports.
