Statement of Tom Stenzel on Proposed Tariffs on Mexican Imports

May 31, 2019

Statement from Tom Stenzel, President & CEO, United Fresh Produce Association on Proposed Tariffs on Mexican Imports

“President Trump’s proposal to put tariffs on all imports from Mexico in order to slow down migrants from Central America applying for U.S. asylum is a misguided concept. Fortunately, the business community, agriculture and national leaders from both political parties have expressed strong opposition to this step. United Fresh will continue to work with allies to prevent this proposal from being implemented. Industry members should know that no tariffs are in place, and commerce today should not be affected. We will stay on top of this situation, and inform our members if the situation changes.”
