Pocan Statement on Signing of the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement
WASHINGTON, DC (November 30, 2018) – Today, U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) released the following statement regarding the signing of the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA).
“Despite the United States, Mexico, and Canada signing the NAFTA 2.0 agreement today, this deal is incomplete. The agreement as currently negotiated will not stop the damage done by NAFTA, including job outsourcing, wage suppression, and environmental degradation. In order to gain widespread support of Democrats in Congress, the agreement must contain swift and enforceable labor and environmental standards and must reverse special protections for corporations. We have been clear about these goals from day one, and I will continue to push the Trump Administration in the upcoming months to fulfill their promise of a new trade framework that supports working families.”
