Washington — The Trump administration has announced plans to levy tariffs on Mexican imports.

The Computer & Communications Industry Association, which recently called on Congress to approve the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, has advocated for open markets for 45 years. The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“The Administration’s plan to impose tariffs on products from Mexico is counter-productive in light of the USMCA and recent steps taken by all parties to implement the updated agreement. The blunt tool of tariffs will harm American consumers and industries, and risks the full realization of the benefits of a modern trade agreement that brings the North American market into the 21st century.”
