Auto industry may feel the deepest impact from Mexican tariffs

President Trump’s announcement of tariffs on all Mexican imports starting on June 10 could create economic woes for automakers and the agriculture industry. Auto parts and vehicles manufactured in Mexico represent the biggest chunk of its trade with the US, totaling $93 billion last year. Mexico is also the largest agricultural supplier to the US.

Cool. It will also substantially reduce the costs of welfare programs if it actually causes Mexico to stop pass through illegals. We spend billions every year on illegals not to mention the cost of human life and quality of life. If all we lose is a couple bucks on guac I'm very much cool with that.

Worth it. Mexico needs to understand that pissing off your source of income has repercussions. It’s some short term pain for us, but a significant hit for them.

People who say "Guac" make me want to brush my tongue with Strychnine. Guacamole sounds flavourful and delicious, where as Guac sounds like something you scrape off the bottom of your boot in San Fransisco.

If they hadn’t taken jobs from Americans and moved them to Mexico in the first place, they wouldn’t be worrying about tariffs now, would they?

What I don't understand is punishing Mexican and American citizens in order to compel action from the Mexican government. They aren't the ones feeling the squeeze. I sincerely don't think it will achieve anything, but stranger things have happened in this timeline.

I don’t believe in tariffs. I would’ve liked to see this done differently—through foreign aid being withheld perhaps. I agree with the endgame but this is a dangerous game of chicken.

Fine with me. Use it to pay for the wall, and reduce entitlements.

No, Mexico is in the crossfire. And companies that have no allegiance to the American worker.
