The entire US auto industry would shut down within a week if President Donald Trump goes through with his pledge to close the US-Mexican border, according to a leading expert on the industry.

Trump has been briefed several times since a year ago about the economic consequences of shutting United States ports of entry at the southern border but has continued to contemplate the idea of closing sections or the border in its entirety. "We're going to grow at least by an estimated 2 percent this year. and 3 percent next year", he said.

Three weeks ago, officials said they had sent 240 migrants back to Mexico since January.

Ms. Nielsen also ordered Customs and Border Protection to speed up its plans to make some migrants wait in Mexico while they demand asylum in the U.S.
