    A politician elected to serve the people of this country should not let the cars be sold here imo.

    Why is it you guys don't understand that vehicle manufacturing has been on-going in Mexico since the 1920's. Buick and Ford first established assembly plants in the mid 1920's.
    Shifting production of vehicles between different assembly plants is a common practice in the industry.
    Besides, everyone knows small cars equal small profit margins. Large American pick-ups and SUV's command larger profits.

    Exactly why I don't let it bother me when people say things about others such as myself driving Japanese cars. My Subaru was made in the USA by an American worker. Maybe not a union worker but is that Ford made in Mexico made by a union worker?

    Yep ! Mexican union ...
    Mexico’s automotive factory workers are the lowest paid in the world, while the automotive firms themselves enjoy profit levels that are among the highest.
    A report in Vanguardia says Mexican auto workers are paid on average between US $3.60 and $3.90 an hour to work on the asssembly line.
    Study points to large wage gaps for Mexican auto workers

    Trump said this morning that every vehicle that Ford makes in Mexico and comes back across the border will have a 35% tax on it .. For Ford it is all about the shareholders..

    Oh how nice ford cars by union workers in mexico and it's been going on since the 20s so nothing to see here.
    Minus healthcare and benefits and they will rake it in and everyone else will be forced to follow.


    Sooner or later the companies will move to a tax haven country and leave the US and not be american anymore.
