Washington DC, June 7: United States President Donald Trump was planning to declare a state of national emergency for hitting Mexico with fresh tariffs over the rush of migrants into the US, as per a draft document.

US authorities have on last Thursday threatened to impose fresh tariffs on its neighbour Mexico if the nation does not step up its enforcement move and take steps to halt the illegal immigration.

According to ANI news reports, the document said the announcement of fresh emergency is required due to “the failure of the Government of Mexico to take effective action to reduce the mass migration of aliens illegally crossing into the United States through Mexico”.

The US president cautioned if Mexico didn’t adhere to his demand then the US tariffs would rise up to 10 percent of Mexico good imports by July, up to 15 percent by August, 20 percent by September and would reach 25 percent by October.

The draft document further stated: “The United States Government has repeatedly asked the Government of Mexico to take responsibility and help reduce this mass migration. Yet the Government of Mexico has failed to take sufficient action to alleviate this problem, has allowed this mass incursion to increase, and has failed to secure its own southern border.”

Representatives from Mexico and the US have failed to reach a deal over an issue of immigration during high-level delegation negotiations held at the White House, ahead of initiation of the imposition of US tariffs on all Mexican goods exports.

Shortly after concluding the meeting, Trump took it to Twitter and said “not nearly enough” progress has been made in talks, reiterating the tariffs would begin to levy “as per schedule” on Monday, in case no agreement is reached.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, meanwhile, stated the US position haven’t has changed, adding tariffs will be positioned next week as per the announcement.

In an email statement, Sanders said, “Position has not changed, and we are still moving forward with tariffs at this time.”
