Imports from Mexico could see added tariffs as President Trump attempts to pressure that country to do more to stop illegal immigration from Central America. Shortly after the announcement, the Arizona Chamber of Commerce quickly voiced its objection to the plan. The chamber's Garrick Taylor discussed the group's concerns with Lorraine Rivera.
"As you know, Arizona is really one of the hotspots for the importation of fresh fruits and vegetables from Mexico and it's not like you can have a big inventory sitting around. This is an inventory that's switched out quite often. This is one of those areas where because of the tariffs shoppers in the produce section could see prices begin to tick up," Taylor said. "I can tell you that in the business community in Arizona these threatened tariffs have been universally panned. Nobody likes the idea of creating a self-imposed drag on our economy."
