"Green Groups Urge Lawmakers To Oppose USMCA"

"Days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced her support for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) on trade, nine environmental groups wrote to lawmakers urging them to vote against its passage.

"On behalf of our over 10 million members, we strongly urge you to VOTE NO on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), also known as NAFTA 2.0, which fails to address the climate crisis and adequately protect our environment, when it comes to the House floor for a vote," the groups wrote in a letter to lawmakers Friday.

The letter was signed by Earthjustice, Food and Water Action, Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, the League of Conservation Voters, the Natural Resources Defense Council, Oil Change International, the Sierra Club and the Sunrise Movement."
