Cornyn, Hurd Issue Statements on NAFTA Renegotiation

U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) today released the following statement after the Administration notified Congress of its intent to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA):

“NAFTA is vitally important to the state of Texas, with free trade adding billions of dollars to our economy annually,” Sen. Cornyn said. “We have a great opportunity to improve and modernize this landmark agreement. By updating NAFTA, we can address modern-day challenges without sacrificing economic prosperity.  I look forward to working with the President and community leaders in Texas to ensure any updates made are in the best interest of my state, and the many farmers, ranchers, and job creators whose livelihoods depend on this vital agreement.”

U.S. Representative Will Hurd released the following statement regarding the Administration’s notification to Congress of their intent to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement:

“Trade is the lifeblood of many communities in my district, including El Paso, Del Rio and Eagle Pass. The U.S., Mexico and Canada are not competitors, but partners who build things together. It is now more important than ever that we strengthen our relationship as allies and partners, so we can work together to increase economic opportunities on both sides of the border,” said Congressman Will Hurd.

“I believe we have a real opportunity to modernize and improve North American Competitiveness in the rest of the world through an upgrade of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). I look forward to working with my colleagues and counterparts to develop mutually beneficial policy that strengthens the economy and keeps Americans safe.”
