  •  20th Anniversary "NAFTA" Ignored by Kos (0+ / 0-)

    1/23/1993 The Heritage Foundation
    "The North American Free Trade Agreement: Ronald Reagan's Vision Realized", By Michael G. Wilson

    (On NAFTA) "It will create an estimated 200,000 new jobs for Americans, reduce illegal immigration from Mexico, help tackle drug trafficking, strengthen Mexican democracy and human rights, it also deals a blow to organized labor and other protectionist forces."
    Many of these protectionist calls were from labor unions concerned that the NAFTA would cost U.S. jobs in older industries. Despite such concerns, though, labor will see that, as consumers in a growing economy, they too are better off when nations are free to trade with one another and workers are exposed to the rigors of international competition.
    Looking to the Future. President Clinton should ride the free trade momentum that conservatives have given him and reaffirm his support for free trade agreements
