Mark Freland: A border tax could make your next car cost $2,500 more (Detroit Free Press)

Proposals for a border tax to pay for a wall with Mexico and encourage increased manufacturing in the U.S. would add hundreds to thousands of dollars to the cost of every car and truck sold here, including those assembled in American factories.
