WASHINGTONCongressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) released the following statement after US, Mexico and Canada reach deal on NAFTA:

“I am glad that the Administration and Canada were finally able to come to an agreement on NAFTA. This has reflected what I have said all along— we must solidify a deal that includes Canada, so that we can build upon the successes of NAFTA and strengthen trade relations with both partners.

“A deal that would have left either one of them behind would have created uncertain markets and been detrimental to our businesses. This trilateral deal will continue to spur growth and economic development for all three countries, as it has since its inception over two decades ago. I look forward to reviewing the final agreement in Congress and working with the Administration to solidify this deal.”
