In a series of tweets, Gov. Doug Ducey voiced support of for President Donald Trump’s plan to implement a series of progressively increasing tariffs on Mexican imports in response to a surge of migrants — mostly families with children — from Central America that has overwhelmed U.S. border officials.
Ducey said that national security is at risk, and that takes precedence over commerce with the state’s largest international trading partner, despite his general opposition to tariffs.
I’ve talked with the White House today. Everyone knows I am opposed to tariffs and deeply value Arizona’s relationship with Mexico. I prioritize national security and a solution to our humanitarian crisis at the border above commerce.
