Congressman Greg Stanton talks Mexico tariffs

Arizona Congressman Greg Stanton says President Trump’s proposal to impose a 5 percent tariff on Mexican imports will hurt Arizona’s economy. Stanton says Arizona has almost 17 billion dollars in goods that cross the border every year and we have almost 100 thousand jobs based on trade with Mexico,  our number one trading partner. He believes we should be expanding trade with Mexico not curtailing it. Congressman Stanton also isn’t sure the President will actually go through with his treats to impose tariffs.
