In a stinging rebuke, the Democratic-controlled House passed legislation to terminate the emergency Trump declared at the US-Mexico border but Trump issued the first veto of his presidency in March to block that measure.
And if immigrants continue to enter the US through the southern border, Mr. Trump said he would close the border, backing away a bit from an earlier threat to close the border soon.
That's a 180-degree pivot from earlier in the week, when Trump told reporters that he would gladly shut trade and movement across the U.S. -Mexico border as early as Friday, if the move would convince Mexican leaders that they need to take an active role in heading off caravans of migrants from Honduras and Guatemala. "No one is above the law or the Constitution, not even the president", Pelosi said. "We'll tariff their cars", he said.
US Attorney General William Barr said the president's emergency declaration was legal.
President Donald Trump threatened to slap tariffs on automobiles made in Mexico and close the US-Mexico border if the country didn't stop "massive amounts of drugs" coming into the US within one year. "I am not kidding around", he said then, exasperated by the swelling numbers of migrants, thousands of whom were being released into the US because border officials had no space for them. "We'll tariff their cars", Trump said.
On Thursday, Trump also threatened tariffs if Mexico doesn't halt the flow of illegal drugs across the border, saying he'd give the country "a one year warning" to comply.
Trump did not give a deadline for when tariffs would be imposed in case of Mexico failing to satisfy his demands for stopping illegal immigrants. Over the Thanksgiving holiday previous year, Trump claimed he'd already "closed the border" after officials briefly closed the northbound lanes at San Ysidro, California, for several hours in the early morning to bolster security because of concerns about a potential influx of migrant caravan members. The Council of Economic Advisers, she said, was conducting a number of studies on the impact, and "working with the president to give him those options".
Trump has been increasingly exasperated by the swelling numbers of migrants entering the USA, including thousands who have being released after arriving because border officials have no space for them.
Separately, Mexican exporters said this week they were looking into sending their goods to the United States by air freight to avoid a five-mile (eight-km)-long line of trucks at the border caused by the Trump administration moving federal agents away from customs checks to immigration duties.
