Republican senators railed against President Donald Trump's threatened tariffs against Mexico in a private lunch on Tuesday with White House and Justice Department officials, who struggled to explain their legal process for implementing the new levies.

An easy solution is for Mexico to stop these migrant invaders at their Southern border. A win-win for Mexico and the U.S.A.
