FAIRFAX, VA — Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Trump administration to enforce the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) by bringing an end to Mexico’s illegal dumping of sugar on U.S. markets:
“Before there can be any discussion about how best to nixing or fixing NAFTA, America must enforce NAFTA. Mexico has been found in violation of antidumping rules by the U.S. International Trade Commission in 2015 for dumping sugar on U.S. markets illegally since 2008. President Trump has been clear that he is going to enforce NAFTA while pursuing a new and better deal for the U.S. economy and American workers. There can be no better time for the President to make this clear to the Mexican government than right now while the Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo is in D.C. that the dumping must stop either through a negotiated settlement or through antidumping and countervailing duties.
“That is why Americans for Limited Government has been joined by the Hispanic Leadership Fund, the Institute for Policy Innovation, the 60 Plus Association, the Institute for Liberty, Citizen Outreach, Consumers Alliance for a Strong Economy, Less Government and the Thomas Jefferson Center for Public Policy in submitting a letter to President Trump urging the administration, with its new U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, to keep the President’s promise to enforce NAFTA.”
