Mexico would have an impact on businesses that cater to Spanish-speaking residents in Door and Kewaunee counties. The Trump Administration proposal would add a five-percent tariff to Mexican-made products this month. That would go up an additional five-percent each of the following months until the total tariff reached 25-percent. Imelda Delcambre, of the Hispanic Resource Center of Door and Kewaunee Counties, believes that will raise prices for goods sold in Hispanic-owned businesses.
The Trump Administration says tariffs are being proposed to try and get the Mexican government to make more of an effort to stop the flow of migrants to the U.S.-Mexico border.
