Congress Could Ratify USMCA This Summer!

The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) troublesomely plunges forward towards implementation. Just last week, Mexico became the first country to ratify the newly updated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) deal with a landslide vote of 114-4. Then Thursday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the White House to meet with President Trump, encouraging the U.S. Congress to swiftly pass the USMCA.

Canada: During his visit, Prime Minister Trudeau staunchly supported the USMCA, saying how it was a “great trade deal” for workers in all three countries. He touched on the good economies and that U.S. and Canada would work on global issues together: 
We’ve worked hard to build a great deal that’s good for Canadian workers, good for American workers, good for Mexican workers as well. … This is just a really great opportunity for us to continue to work and to develop and to build on the closest alliance in the world, between Canada and the United States.

Mexico: It would be a close alliance, indeed. So close, in fact, that you could say the countries would be integrated economically and eventually politically. We’ve already heard former Mexican President Peña Nieto remark, originally in Spanish:

The renegotiation of the new trade agreement sought to safeguard the vision of an integrated North America, the conviction that together we are stronger and more competitive.… The Mexico-United States-and-Canada Treaty gives a renewed face toward our integration.
United States: Given the former president of Mexico's statement of the true purpose of the USMCA as full integration of the United States, Mexico, and Canada, the statements that U.S. President Trump has made in regards to propelling the USMCA forward and implementing the deal are troubling. For example, Trump has said: 
It’s great for the farmers, manufacturers … It’s great for unions. … In a trade sense, we’re competing with the European Union. We’re competing with China. It gives us a bigger dialogue. It gives us a much bigger platform. 
This new “union” between Canada, Mexico, and the United States would likely be irreversible. To many globalists contentment, the North American Union would be secured, working right alongside the European Union, creating the next steppingstone towards world government. The USMCA would establish the Free Trade Commission (FTC) and give it  increasing control over our exports, imports, tariffs, and even controlling who would cross our borders, unequivocally integrating all three countries. A swift congressional approval of the USMCA could occur as soon as August, especially with Mexico’s ratification already in place, and Canada’s intent to ratify it soon as well. 

President Trump needs to be reminded to put America First and Congress needs to follow suit by voting NO on the USMCA. Phone your representative (202-225-3121) and Senators (202-224-3121) and urge them to vote NO on the USMCA deal to save U.S. sovereignty. Follow up with an email.
