The president has less authority to impose taxes and fees than he has for a general tariff. It would likely require a bill through Congress authorizing it. It would be a new business tax.

However, he can accomplish a very similar thing by imposing these tariffs...which would require a bill through both houses with a veto proof majority to STOP him from imposing.

He’s doing what’s available for him to do under existing law.

Scott, Is this an invasion? Is this serious?

Sorry a 5% tariff that US consumers are paying for Tequila, cilantro, fruits, Mexican party favors, etc. doesn’t seem like much to me except irony is that I am paying if I buy...Not Mexico...

Why not huge fees on remittances - cannot those be called tariffs and they be aimed at those breaking our laws, not mild tariffs on US consumers.

I just wish he would do more and would have months ago...What happened to the National Emergency declaration idea that was going around???...Eisenhower used it as did Bush.

HE gave Mexico a year instead of shutting down the border—that might have actually done something to stem the tide.

And it is a tsunami! Today over a 1000 moseyed over the border in El Paso...What is happening is insane!!

Drastic actions are required—shroud have been enacted already...
