WASHINGTON, DC – The Latino Coalition (TLC), the leading, national non-partisan advocacy organization representing Hispanic businesses and consumers, released the following statement regarding the United States-Mexico Trade Agreement:
"The recently announced United States-Mexico Trade Agreement is a major victory for the Trump Administration and a crucial step towards bettering relations with our neighbors in the south,” said TLC Chairman and former U.S. SBA Administrator Hector Barreto. “Delivering on his promise to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), President Trump is seeking free and fair trade for the United States, while giving Mexico financial stability and establishing new labor standards for their workers. The Latino Coalition applauds this accord as a critically important trade development, which will boost economic prosperity and grow the global economy.”
