An illegal border crossing attempt between Mexico and the U.S.

DES MOINES – Today, Gov. Kim Reynolds released the following statement regarding President Trump’s recent tariff threats on Mexico over migration:

Kim Reynolds

“We need to secure the border and address our nation’s broken immigration system, but it cannot be done on the backs of Iowa farmers. Iowans are frustrated with Washington’s inability to reform our country’s immigration system and address the crisis at the border, but I am asking the President to rethink this approach. Mexico is Iowa’s top trading partner, and placing new tariffs could undo the progress made by the negotiated USMCA trade agreement. Congress must move forward with ratification of the USMCA.”

President Donald Trump on Thursday declared that “on June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied, at which time the Tariffs will be removed. Details from the White House to follow.”

The tariffs, worth $346.5 billion, would begin on June 10. Then, go to 10 percent on July 1. Then, go to 15 percent on August 1 and then rise to 20 percent on September 1, and 25 percent on October 1.

    Mexicans will pay the price when their income slows because people quit buying their higher priced goods due to the tariffs.
    We Americans are all in this together to protect our Country. So what if we all have to kick in to protect ourselves. In the end, Mexico will pay the price for being such an unfriendly and greedy neighbor.
    Quit rooting for the other side that is hell-bent on destroying our country.

    we should just declare war on mexicos government/cartel and their police. take them out and install a nice puppet government. give ourselves a decade of peace and quiet before we have to do it all over again. they obviously cant control or run their own country, they obviously need America the real America to tell them what to do. we should stop calling south of texas south America, those people are not American in anyway and shouldn’t be blessed with the title.

    god youre a dumb person. drugs come from every point of entry, meth is made in America. kim can shove it. she ignores what we the people want and does what she wants. I hate to say it but hopefully we can get a demo governor who isn’t anti gun and will give us reasonable fair medical marijuana laws, also as adults who like money maybe we should legalize recreational and make some money off iowas potheads? its not like people aren’t using it all over the state, we should get profits and stop incarcerating people and ruining families and futures KIM…

      Sounds great. But American businesses and ultimately their employees will pay the cost, just as they are with the China tariffs.

        You are full of shit. Mexicans will pay the price when their income slows because people quit buying their higher priced goods due to the tariffs.

    As the world blasts your choices for accountability among those nations who have taken advantage of our American patriotism & loyalty to humankind, your decisions will transform what it means to be a law abiding society, thank you. As for all of the naysayers at what point will you realize we have American citizens suffering and struggling to survive, who should receive preferential action over illegal aliens. Hold the line Mr. President, hitting nations at their pocketbooks will quickly change their influence over America.

    Reynolds is out of line with this. No one else will do anything about the border so Trump is doing what he can. Get after congress for not doing their job, Trump is doing his.

    As a person directly depending on the Iowa ag economy, I stand behind the president on this matter. I’d rather have a country than more stuff to consume.

      If you own your land, great. If you rent, please don’t expect your landlord to lower rent to support your political opinion.
