DES MOINES, Iowa – Gov. Kim Reynolds responded to President Donald Trump’s announcement that he would implement a five percent tariff on all Mexican goods if Mexico does not assist with stemming the number of migrants that reach the U.S. southern border.

Trump said the tariff will take effect on June 10th and he would gradually increase it until the “illegal immigration problem is solved.”

“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,” Reynolds said. “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.”

  1. According to the latest report, President Trump got the job done without going on the backs of farmers. A little more faith in our President would go a long way on your re-election Ms. Reynolds.
