Border shutdown? How US consumers could be impacted

America would run out of avocados in weeks if Trump shuts border with Mexico, grower warns

Meanwhile, the Trump administration said Monday as many as 2,000 US inspectors who screen cargo and vehicles at ports of entry along the Mexican border may be reassigned to help handle the surge of migrants.

"There was a fear on our part, it's very altruistic on our part in the United States which it should be, that they would be picked up by Mexican cartels, and used as drug mules or in human trafficking", he said.

Customs and Border Protection has temporarily moved Laredo-based officers to help in areas with an influx of asylum-seekers, like the Rio Grande Valley and El Paso. That's how this one is likely going to play out, except I'm not betting any money on anything right now because I'm saving up for the possibility that black market avocados might soon cost $35 apiece. "If you notice we're not having the problem with Mexico".

Officials said the number being detained for crossing the border illegally has reached near 100,000 a month, mostly from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. NPR also turned to Dziczek for information, who further explained that Mexico accounts for 37 percent of all imported parts in the States and that a border closure could see some manufacturing plants go idle in just a few hours.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday the administration is "looking at all options" on whether to close entry ports and what the impact would be. "I have to have security", he said.

Elected leaders from border communities stretching from San Diego to the Texas cities of El Paso and Laredo warned that havoc would ensue on both sides of the worldwide boundary if the ports were closed. The secretary was scheduled to be in Europe all week for bilateral security meetings, representing the U.S.at gathering of G7 interior ministers.

Because of limits on how long children are legally allowed to be held in detention, numerous families are released to await their US immigration court hearings, a process that can take years because of ballooning backlogs. "It is NOT the sole deterrent. And it's the first time really in decades that this is taking place and it should have taken place a long time ago", Trump told reporters. The U.S. State Department confirmed on March 30 it has stopped aid to the three countries of the so-called Northern Triangle after Trump repeatedly warned them he would do so if they fail to stem the migration.

President Donald Trump threatened to close the U.S. -Mexico border this week if Mexico did not stop all undocumented immigrants from coming into the United States.

The US immigration courts have enough workload for them given that there are too many cases for them to handle and some have even been extended to a year's waiting period. They don't do anything for us. "So those two things are certainly helpful and we'd like to see them continue".
