Mexico tariffs set to take effect Monday despite ‘progress’ in talks: W.House

WASHINGTON, June 7, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – The US intends to apply punitive tariffs on imports from Mexico on Monday despite progress in talks for a crackdown on migrants, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Friday.

“Our position hasn’t changed,” Sanders told reporters abord Air Force One in Europe.

“They’ve made a lot of progress,” she said. “The meetings have gone well, but as of now we’re still on track for tariffs on Monday.”
