Avocados would run out in 3 weeks if border shuts down

Posted April 04, 2019

Far from trivialising a potential bilateral trade crisis, some experts say that focusing on the avocado helps drive home the impact Trump's decision would have on American readers. He followed the tweet with an order to cut off all U.S. aid to the three Northern Triangle countries.

Other food imports that would be halted and/or affected by a border closure are tomatoes, cucumbers, blackberries and raspberries, as Mexico supplies the majority of these items to the United States, according to Delish. "That is more important than trade".

Mexican officials announced Monday they'd pulled 338 Central American migrants -181 adults and 157 children- off five passenger buses in a southern state that borders Guatemala, and said they had detained 15 possible smugglers on immigration law violations. One only need add the unspoken thought, "At least not yet". They are seeking private commitments as well as evidence that Mexico's efforts on the ground are sustained for more than a day or two.

He tweeted Friday that he would be "CLOSING the Border, or large sections of the Border", in the coming week if Mexico does not crack down on illegal border crossings.

"We have seen Mexico earthquakes, coastal labour disputes at ports of entries and tsunamis".

This cruel policy has been implemented as United States migrant detention facilities are overflowing, with over 13,000 children being held in appalling conditions.

Senior US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials said on Tuesday a recent redeployment of some 750 officers on the border to deal with a surge in migrants - mostly Central American families turning themselves into border agents - had already led to a slowing of legal crossings and commerce at ports of entry. In December, in the middle of the government shutdown, the president threatened to "close the southern border entirely" if "obstructionist Democrats" didn't fund his border wall.

Following Trump's initial threats, experts immediately began warning those of the catastrophic impact the US economy would face if the border did close, including cutting off supply lines for USA automakers, raising prices for grocery shoppers, and forcing businesses to lay off staff. If that shutdown extends to other days of the week, Jungmeyer worries some people will be out of work.

USA police paid for hotel for brothers in Jussie Smollett attack case
Kamala Harris told CNN's Wolf Blitzer, in a chat about the Smollett case, that she was "completely confused" about its outcome. The FBI is already conducting a probe into a threatening letter Smollett received on the set of " Empire " in Chicago.

On the Mexican side, Andres Morales Arreola, head of operations for border crossings in Chihuahua state, said the border between Ciudad Juarez and El Paso had "collapsed" because so many USA border officials have been reassigned to deal with the migrant influx. "But they're playing games and we've had enough of that here at the border", Saenz says.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce said Monday that almost $1.7 billion of goods and services flow across the U.S. -Mexico border each day, and almost half a million legal workers, students, shoppers and tourists cross the dividing line between the two countries, as well. "We're not going to have it anymore".

The irrationality of this approach is breathtaking.

"We haven't seen a time in the U.S. 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. "We urge the administration to end current trade disputes and to focus on the expansion of export markets for USA agriculture, an economic sector that reduces the USA trade deficit by producing some of America's most competitive export products".

Graham derides Dems' 'Oliver Stone approach' to Mueller report
The President was interviewed by Sean Hannity on Fox News on Wednesday night to "react" to the Mueller report. Which, we now know , is the elusive "what is true" Comey's "honest group of people" were trying to find out.

Trump is not some mad exception. It must be treated with greater resources at the border and also at the source, in Central America.
