Alliance Formed to Urge Resolution to Trade Dispute


More than 150 U.S. manufacturers, companies and agricultural interests have announced the formation of a group called the Alliance to Keep U.S. Jobs. This group is going to press the Obama administration and Congress to fix an ongoing U.S.-Mexico trade dispute.

These companies were subjected to tariffs by the Government of Mexico only days after the U.S. Congress terminated a U.S. pilot cross-border trucking program, an act that put the United States in violation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

The Obama administration promised to take action several months ago, but no action has been taken. Alliance spokesman Steve Mulder says the Alliance was formed because the industries had become innocent victims of a lengthy political dispute.
