Action Needed: Stop the USMCA!

Written by  Kristin Kenowski Thursday, 23 May 2019 20:40

President Trump recently lifted the steel and aluminum tariffs on Mexico and Canada, clearing the way for the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) to be passed. With the White House feverishly working to get it ratified by the end of summer, it seems Democrats are the only ones standing in the way. Now more than ever, education and local activism are needed to stop Congress from passing the USMCA.

Even though the Democrats stand staunchly against Trump, it’s beginning to look like it won’t be long before they change their mind on the USMCA. Democrat Steny Hoyer, discussing the USMCA, told reporters last Tuesday: “The administration wants to get to a yes, we would like to get to yes.” And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has held discussions with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to work on and solidify provisions such as labor, environment, enforcement, and pharmaceutical in the agreement. Lamentably, Lighthizer has offered to work directly with Democrats to come to a deal: “Any way I can help I will.” A Bloomberg article covers what will happen next: 

As the next procedural step, the White House has to submit a draft statement of administrative action that lays out the changes to U.S. law and starts a 30-day clock before legislation can be sent to the Congress that lawmakers will put to a vote. 

Before this comes to the floor for a vote, we must sound the alarm on this sovereignty-destroying deal! We must remind President Trump that America was made great not by what government did, but by what it was prevented from doing. Having a North American Union only provides another level of government over us. Additionally, the government would have less and less accountability to the local citizenship it is supposedly meant to serve. 

America deserves better. America deserves to get out of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and to not enter into the USMCA. America deserves freedom and prosperity with simple free trade, not these massive, managed trade agreements stripping us of sovereignty. 

That is why America so desperately needs The John Birch Society, because we create the local grassroots activism that is needed to preserve our nation as it was originally intended by our Founders. One of our main projects is stopping the USMCA. Join with us as we tackle Deep State advocates and globalists and stop the New World Order! Get involved today! The first step is contacting a local coordinator to find out what you can do to help. 

Then, hastily phone your representative (202-225-3121) and Senators (202-224-3121) and urge them to oppose and vote NAY on any USMCA implementation bill. Follow up by emailing them. Whether Democrat or Republican, our elected officials must come to the realization that the USMCA does not put America First and brings about a North American Union. Tell five others to do the same; we need all the help we can get!
