Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced Thursday he would not support the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement
(USMCA), citing the proposed deal’s failure to address climate change. “Despite the fact that it includes very
good labor provisions, I am voting against USMCA because it does not address climate
change, the greatest threat facing the planet,” Schumer said in a statement. “Instead of advancing global climate security
by outlining binding and enforceable climate commitments from all three countries, the
Trump administration provides significant incentives for manufacturers to move their
business and their jobs from the U.S. to Mexico, where clean air and clean water regulations
are much weaker,” he continued.
