Washington, D.C. – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, an historic trade deal, and a legislative victory for the American people and the American dream:
“The United States’ biggest strength are the individuals who call this country home. They are the unsung heroes who are working hard to achieve their own version of the American Dream, a concept unique to this nation. Today is for them – the USMCA has officially been signed into law, a legislative victory that will help secure our prosperity for decades to come.
“When President Trump first laid out this goal as a campaign promise, critics said it couldn’t be done. And he said, ‘watch me.’ Through the work of his administration, especially Ambassador Lighthizer, and the unwavering support from Congressional Republicans, this once ‘pie-in-the-sky’ vision is officially reality.
“By opening markets and leveling the playing field for American businesses and consumers, we continue to build on the greatest economy this generation has ever experienced. It was an honor to be at the White House, on behalf of my constituents, to celebrate this substantial milestone.”
