SAN LUIS, Ariz. (Reuters) - A lifelong Republican, Russ Jones supports President Donald Trump and agrees he needs to take action to deal with an immigration crisis on the border with Mexico.Jones also has a customs brokerage business to run, however, and says Trumps lingering threat to impose tariffs on imports from Mexico unless its government stems the flow of Central American migrants across the U.S.-Mexico border is terrible policy. Trump, infuriated by a surge of illegal immigrants in recent months, had threatened to impose a 5% tariff on Mexican imports starting on Monday, and steadily increase it to 25% in coming months, unless Mexico acted to stop what he describes as an invasion.

I don't respect that position.
HATE media spends all day every day finding crap to bash Trump with.
The Mexicans caved, so just exactly is the point of this article?
Another attempt to demoralize Trump supporters.
The MSM leftard reporter found a few fake “republicans” and made another anti-Trump article. How nice..
Are all the businessmen suffering jaundice and brain damage?
Yellow and stupid which is sad.
Fearing losing money? Like the 100B+the jobs stolen, resources leeched etc. from those illegal aliens? If they fail due to the tariffs it probably means they’re too invested in having illegal aliens as customers or even employees.
The threat is over so be happy and hope Mexico lives up to its word.
Get Stuffed ,Trump Won
Agree totally, what it is costing America no where compares with his dollar loss.
Well that makes you a good American because WTF is wrong with these people that won’t give up anything for country?!?!?
There was PIECES of a billion different kids on the beaches of Normandy.
I’m QUITE sure they didn’t WANT To be in PIECES at 18 and 19 and 20!!!
They didn’t have careers to make a fortune in. They didn’t have wives and they didn’t have kids and grandkids and houses.
They didn’t get to grow to middle age and b.tch about nonsense (a crime I commit often).
They gave EVERYTHING and I when I say everything I mean mother ####ING EVERYTHING.
For us. Babies, middle aged, Their age, women, men, rich, poor, business owners 2000 miles away from the border and business owners right next to the border.
AND THEY DIDN’T DO IT SO SOROS AND THE NWO AND THIRD RATE CITIZEN AND GOVTS FROM SH.THOLE COUNTRIES COULD RUIN THE COUNTRY THEY FOUGHT FOR.
Maybe these business should put some pics of D Day up in the businesses.
It might remind them of what being an American is actually all about.
Hey Russ you old fool, that “terrible policy” just worked.
And to the writer, Tim Reid, you bigger old fool, there’s a lot more than just Donald J. Trump infuriated by a surge of illegal immigrants in recent months... Millions and millions of us!
Nekked RINOS left out in the cold = shrinkage, revealing small men.
Our nation’s sovereignty is more important than this guy’s extra buck off of our exported jobs.
Even Robert Mueller is a Republican. Viva la GOPee.
Whenever you hear “I love my country and I support the President...BUT...”
you know you’re dealing with a phony to whom all the above comes second to his self interest.
Tim Reid is life-long lying nard-less scumbag Commie.
So that kind of balances things out.
The point, as always,to severely wound. These little men use pencils rather than knives or arrows to do so.
I can’t believe they were stupid enough to think Mexico wasn’t going to give in, the Mexican economy had way more to lose. Mexican officials knew Trump wasn’t bluffing either. Good negotiating tactic
All of a sudden the MSM cares what Republican business owners think.
