The White House said Thursday that Mexican proposals so far to deal with the flow of immigrants from Central America are "simply not enough," making it likely punitive tariffs will take effect next week.

"Looks like we're moving toward the path of tariffs," White House communications chief Mercedes Schlapp said on Fox News, as Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard held a second straight day of talks in Washington.

President Donald Trump announced last week a plan to impose tariffs on all imports from Mexico as of Monday, starting at five percent and increasing monthly to 25 percent.
