Border Trade Alliance statement on announcement of suspension of tariffs against Mexico

The cross-border trade community is pleased with this outcome. We know that the tariffs would have harmed our economy and would not have had their intended effect of stemming the tide of Central American asylum-seekers at the U.S. southern border. We would encourage the administration now to redouble its efforts to work with leaders on Capitol Hill to ensure the passage of the USMCA and continue to cooperate with our neighbor Mexico in confronting the challenges at our shared border.
