Trump To Pursue ‘Aggressive’ Executive Crackdown On Immigration

America would run out of avocados in weeks if Trump shuts border with Mexico, grower warns

US Would Run Out Of Avocados In Three Weeks If Trump Shuts Border, Expert Says

Last week, the president threatened to shut down the US border with Mexico, saying that Mexico and other Central American countries were not doing enough to stem the tide of migrants crossing into the United States from Mexico.

It was a shift from Trump's threat late last week to seal the border, and quickly.

Trump brought up the possibility of closing ports of entry along the southern border Friday and revisited it in tweets over the weekend because of a surge of Central Americans migrants who are seeking asylum.

That closure could disrupt a large amount of trade - $137 billion just in food imports, NBC News reports.

It remains unclear what legal authority Trump has to close the border, in any case, and the White House was not able to answer the question on Tuesday. This is something no US president has ever done! "So those two things are certainly helpful and we'd like to see them continue", Sanders said.

Automakers exported almost 2.6 million Mexican-made vehicles to the United States, in 2018, accounting for 15 percent of all vehicles sold in the United States. She says almost every vehicle in the U.S.is dependent on parts from Mexico.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said on MSNBC that the White House was considering a number of options short of closing the border, such as shutting down certain entry ports or parts of all of them.

"We haven't seen a time in the United States when supermarket shelves are bare from fresh produce in a long time", president of the Fresh Produce Association of the Americas Lance Jungmeyer tells CNN. California does grow some avocados, but they're not in season there yet, and the eventual crop won't be enough to replace those avocados from Mexico.

Both Democrats and Republicans dismissed Mr. Trump's talk.

According to the communiqué, Lopez Obrador noted that the Federal Government has made in-depth changes in the labor and environmental sectors, and it has taken innovative outreaching measures to improve competitiveness in the northern border region and to develop Mexico's south and southeast.

"Any action that stops commerce at the border would be harmful to the U.S. economy, and in particular, the auto industry", Blunt said.

If Mexico does not stop migrants from transiting across its territory, and if Congress does not act, he said, "the border's going to be closed, 100 percent". Many who do make their way to the USA border. Between 11,000 and 12,000 semi-trucks cross the same border each day with an estimated 50 million pounds of produce.

Last week, Border Patrol agents in El Paso we forced to keep thousands of illegal immigrants housed under a bridge because detention centers are full. On Monday, DHS said it would dramatically ramp up the pace of that program, even as it is being challenged in court and immigration attorneys have raised concerns about how the process is being implemented.
