In a surprise announcement, President Donald Trump announced that he is slapping a 5% tariff on all Mexican imports, effective June 10th, to pressure the country to do more to crack down on the surge of Central American migrants trying to cross the U.S. border.

The decision showed the administration going to new lengths, and looking for new levers, to pressure Mexico to take action.
