Doesn't matter what Mexico says. They're going to be paying for it via import tariffs imposed on their country when they export to the US. Short of cutting off all exports to the US they can't really do anything about it and 80% of Mexico's exports go to the United States.

They can impose a tarrif on imported American goods too.


Edit:
"(b) To better inform the public regarding the public safety threats associated with sanctuary jurisdictions, the Secretary shall utilize the Declined Detainer Outcome Report or its equivalent and, on a weekly basis, make public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens and any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honor any detainers with respect to such aliens." - Trump's executive order on interior immigration enforcement

You realize that Mattis was the person who said 'fear of Islam is rational', right?

You are mixing up Mike Flynn with Mattis,

 Mattis said "The fundamental question I believe is, ‘Is political Islam in our best interest?’ If not, what is our policy to authoritatively support the countervailing forces?”"

Mattis was an excellent pick he is a lead by example type guy and is very knowledgeable in history and other aspects that make him great for the job.

@half: My mistake.

Shockingly, Mattis seems qualified.

Ye a few people take some of his quotes out of context to make him seem war/blood hungry and sometimes he does say some things that make you wonder.

some of his best ones are

""be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.""

"“I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you f--k with me, I’ll kill you all.”"

"“No war is over until the enemy says it’s over. We may think it over, we may declare it over, but in fact, the enemy gets a vote.""

"“I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.

“"You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway. So it’s a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it’s quite fun to fight them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right up there with you. I like brawling.”"

With the last one being one of his more questionable ones. But it was also one of the earliest quotes you can see after all the fighting and tours he really started to understand war and how it effects people and that fighting is not always the answer.

^Since you claim these quotes are taken out of context, care to bring some context into them?

Although CNN is generally clickbait, they do make some good points here about Trump's idiotic tariff idea, in particular pointing out that imposing it would be a treaty violation.  The U.S. taxpayer is going to foot the bill one way or the other for this useless boondoggle.

If I ever meet God in person, I'm going to ask Him why he created so many stupid people, and then punch Him in the nose before he answers.

That also doesn't take into account additional possible consequences from Mexico and/or other concerned trading partners of the United States.

Yep.  Let's start a trade war!  Let's go pick fights with other nations!  That's SURE to make things better for everyone.
