"This would create a national recession", Saenz says. These conditions in the so-called Northern Triangle of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala are the legacy of a century of USA imperialist oppression, marked by near-genocidal counterinsurgency wars and savage military dictatorships installed with Washington's backing.
But a U.S. Coast Guard G5 that she usually uses took off from London's Stansted Airport just 24 hours after it landed, Politico's Playbook reported, and returned to Washington D.C. That's because the threat alone causes problems, regardless of whether the president follows through. We also have maquilas with the auto industry being manufactured in Mexico, those parts come back across the border. Without really ever thinking about it, millions of Americans depend on that trade for everything from the cars they drive to the food they eat-and a lot more.
Elected leaders from border communities stretching from San Diego to cities across Texas warned that havoc would ensue on both sides of the global boundary if the ports were closed. One only need add the unspoken thought, "At least not yet". The United States and Mexico do cooperate already in addressing Central American migration, and, in any event, Mexico can not stop every undocumented migrant from entering the United States. Or, we're going to close large sections of the border, maybe not all of it.
A Border Patrol agent loads detained migrants into a van at the U.S-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas, on March 31, 2019.
This cruel policy has been implemented as United States migrant detention facilities are overflowing, with over 13,000 children being held in appalling conditions. Along with closing the border, he has announced he is cutting off support to the Central American countries that so many migrants have fled. This number may be expanded to 2,000, forcing the shutdown of entry lanes and a dramatic slowdown for those trying to cross the border.
Mulvaney appeared on CNN, in which he said the White House was anxious about the impact a border closure would have on the economy but stuck to the immigration message.
"If you can close down the border when you're mad at anything, what is the value of a deal?" he said. But the other rough half is of trade is trade in intermediate parts.

Zidane also praised Marcelo , who has returned to his team, saying: "What he has done here as a player has been phenomenal". He is a good player and we always ask more from him.
Closing the border could disrupt millions of legal crossings and billions of dollars in trade. He backed off that on Tuesday, saying that Mexico had made progress in detaining migrant flows.
"Once they get in, because, as you know, we can only hold families for 20 days, they send the child back and bring the child back with another family - another fake family, another adult", Nielsen added.
"By anyone's definition, by any measure, right now we have a crisis at our southern border", Johnson told Neil Cavuto Saturday.
However, the economic consequences of closing the southern border would be immediate and severe, especially for the USA automotive industry which relies on auto parts from Mexico. "We're not going to have it anymore".
The irrationality of this approach is breathtaking.
For another, statistics like these - how quickly USA consumers would feel the pressure of a border closure when they go to make breakfast - only capture one part of the U.S. One auto industry analyst estimates that a shut down could halt auto production in most USA factories within a week.
