(Reuters) – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is looking at ways to challenge U.S. tariffs on Mexican goods, including legal options, an official with the organization said on Friday.

The influential business lobbying group is exploring legal questions and keeping options open, said Neil Bradley, executive vice president and chief policy officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

U.S. President Donald Trump says he will introduce punitive tariffs on June 10 if Mexico does not halt the flow of illegal immigration from Central America to the United States, battering Mexican financial assets and hurting stocks worldwide.

“We have no choice but to pursue every option available to push back,” Bradley told reporters on Friday.
