WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) issued the following statement after President Trump signed the U.S. – Mexico – Canada Agreement (USMCA). Congressman Higgins voted in support of the USMCA trade deal in the U.S. House of Representatives on December 19, 2019.
“The USMCA is a win for America and another promise kept by President Trump. The newly signed deal creates jobs, increases our leverage with other ongoing international trade negotiations, generates broad, long-term economic growth, expands market access, and levels the playing field for American workers. My office and the Louisiana Congressional Delegation have worked very hard with the President’s staff on USMCA for over 2 years. Louisiana farmers, manufacturers, and exporters will benefit greatly.”
