President Trump threatens tariffs on Mexican cars

White House says Democrats will never see Trump's tax returns

At another point, he said, "If the drugs don't stop, we'll tariff the cars".

The vote of the five-member panel - consisting of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.), Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.), Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) - was 3-2 along party lines, according to Hoyer.

Mr. Trump's threat comes as he is trying to shepherd the U.S. -Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement through Congress, the renegotiated trade deal which replaced NAFTA.

Stefan Oliva, a research analyst at Gro Intelligence, which collects and analyzes agricultural data, said "procurement managers, wholesalers and processors" are "clamoring" foravocados in case the border is shut ahead of the Cinco de Mayo celebration.

Autoparts and medical equipment makers were among the companies considering the more expensive air cargo to avoid incurring penalties for late delivery to US clients, or factory closures, Luis Aguirre, the president of Mexico's manufacturing industry chamber INDEX, said late on Wednesday. "If that doesn't work, we'll close the border". "But the answer is not to punish those who are legally crossing the border".

Schumacher said he found Ferrari's 2019 vehicle "incredible because of the power it has but it is also smooth to drive". The vehicle has more grip, the auto is less draggy on the straights, the engine is a big step better as well.

In his latest walk-back in recent days, Trump told reporters he would try the "less drastic measure" before resorting to his standing threat. I don't play games", he said, adding, "The whole ballgame is cars.If Mexico doesn't help, that's okay. Arrests along the southern border have skyrocketed in recent months and border agents were on track to make 100,000 arrests or denials of entry in March, a 12-year high. "And if that doesn't stop the drugs, we close the border", Trump said. More than half of those are families with children, who require extra care. Trump has mocked and vowed to end that "catch and release" practice but overwhelmed authorities see no choice.

Officials were hoping to have as many as 300 asylum seekers returned to Mexico per day by the end of the week near Calexico and El Paso in Texas and San Ysidro in California.

She said a congressional legal advisory group voted to authorise the lawsuit. The request was met with disdain by Democrats.

Shutting certain border stations or parts of them would not be unprecedented. He says he's giving Mexico "a one-year warning" to comply.

In 2014 then-President Enrique Pena Nieto launched a program that was described as ensuring orderly migration but in practice resulted in making it much more hard for Central Americans to transit.
