June 24, 2019 – Last week, the Mexican Senate voted 114-to-4 to approve the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, thereby concluding the USMCA’s legislative consideration process in Mexico. Following the vote, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador urged Canada and the U.S. to ratify the deal, but while those two countries kicked off their respective domestic ratification processes last month the outlook for quick ratification appears a bit more clouded in the U.S. With the current tension in Iran occupying world headlines, it appears that any such ratification in the U.S. will require immense focus and hard work.
