Press Release

VILLAGE OF OAK CREEK – Following the Administration’s announcement to increase tariffs on Mexican goods, Congressman Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01) released the following statement:

"Arizona businesses and consumers rely on trade with Mexico every single day. This decision to raise tariffs is going to hurt our economy and raise the prices of goods for working families. I am deeply concerned that tying our trade relationships with border security will derail the ongoing trade negotiations. Congress must act to address our broken immigration system, and this administration cannot continue to weaponize international trade at the expense of hardworking Americans."
