U.S. Mexico Trade talks were failed to reach a deal on immigration issues during their Wednesday meeting.
Trump administration officials received Mexico’s foreign minister at the White House on Wednesday, and will meet again on Thursday.
Trump said that the 5% import taxes will go into effect next Monday, unless Mexico stops the flow of migrants to the United States.

US Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held talks with Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard at the White House on Wednesday, but the meeting ended without agreement.
Mr. Ebrard said at a press conference that the rates were not even discussed.
“The dialogue focused on migratory flows and what Mexico is doing or is proposing to the United States, our concern about the situation in Central America,” he said.
The outcome was not entirely unexpected, despite White House trade advisor Peter Navarro’s remark earlier Wednesday that Trump’s tariff threat had gotten Mexico’s attention. A senior administration official told before the talks began that they were being viewed as a starting line for negotiations between the two countries, not a finish line.
