Jason Church, candidate for Congress in Wisconsin’s Seventh District, wrote an op-ed for the Superior Telegram praising President Trump’s signing of the USMCA:
“The United States-Canada-Mexico Agreement (USMCA) should have been finalized a year ago. Canada and Mexico both passed the deal in their respective countries and have been waiting for Washington to act.
Instead of passing this deal — which will have enormous benefit for Northern Wisconsin — in a responsible timeframe, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats held up the agreement.
After House Democrats stalled, the House and Senate finally passed the USMCA. This week, President Trump signed this important trade deal, a victory for all Americans. The USMCA is a much-needed modernization of NAFTA, the trade agreement between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico that took effect in 1994.
Republicans and Democrats both agreed that NAFTA encouraged companies to export American jobs in order to use cheap labor, particularly in Mexico. With Mexican labor laws set to change under the USMCA, businesses will not see the same benefits and more jobs will stay in the U.S.”
