Democratic lawmakers have signed off on the new NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement. The new trade deal is known as the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. It includes more environmental protections, especially aimed at protecting marine wildlife from pollution and overfishing. It also includes additional labor protections aimed at making it easier for Mexican workers to unionize. The trade deal also includes new provisions around intellectual property and the digital economy. The original North American Free Trade Agreement took effect in 1994, devastating the livelihood of small farmers across Mexico.
