Effective 10 JUN, the administration will implement a 5% tariff across the board on all products brought in from Mexico.  The tariffs will increase  “until the ongoing illegal immigration surge at the Southern border is remedied,…at which time the Tariffs will be removed.”  The tariff will hike to 10% on 1 JUL, 15% on 1 AUG, 20% on 1 SEP and 25% on 1 OCT.

Some lighting manufacturers have shifted portions of their production recently from China to Mexico to avoid tariffs.
