Freedom Partners: U.S.-Mexico Trade Too Critical to Economy to Jeopardize by Closing the Border

Post by Freedom Partners

Arlington, VA – In response to reports that the Trump administration is considering closing the U.S.-Mexico border, Freedom Partners urged administration officials to preserve commerce between the two nations.

Freedom Partners Executive Vice President Nathan Nascimento issued the following statement:

“Trade with Mexico and other nations is a big reason why the American economy is as strong as it is today. The flow of goods and people is integral to the larger American economy and central to improving lives and removing barriers to opportunity. Closing down the border would devastate American businesses, families and workers. We urge the administration to support more trade with Mexico, not impose new barriers to it. While immigration reform is long overdue, it’s best addressed by the administration and Congress together – not by punishing Americans.”
