WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Nanette Diaz Barragán (CA-44) released a statement after voting against the United States-Mexico Trade Agreement (USMCA). The Agreement was first announced by the Trump administration in November of 2018. Since then, House Democrats have worked to improve the labor, environmental, and enforcement provisions of the Agreement.
“Although there were labor and enforcement improvements made with the USMCA, climate change is a crisis that must be urgently addressed and accounted for in our trade agreements. The USMCA falls far short of that so I joined national environmental organizations and the youth climate movement to oppose the agreement.”
Nanette Diaz Barragán is proud to represent California’s 44th Congressional District, which includes the communities of Carson, Compton, Florence-Firestone, Lynwood, North Long Beach, Rancho Dominguez, San Pedro, South Gate, Walnut Park, Watts, Willowbrook and Wilmington.
