I’m not sure how much money it will raise, but Mr. Trump vows new tariffs on all things MEX:

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

He said the percentage will gradually increase — up to 25% — “until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied.”

Was this a January 2017 oversight item? Anyway, better late than never.
