45 GOP House Reps Sign Letter Demanding Trump Removes LGBT Rights Provision In NAFTA Replacement Deal

The letter is spearheaded by Colorado Rep. Doug Lamborn who has a 100% rating from the Family Research Council and has the usual lunatic GOP suspects standing behind it including: Virginia “Matthew Shepard’s killing was not a hate crime” Foxx, Steve “Mein Herr” King, and Louie “Crazy  as a Loon” Gomert.

Washington Examiner reports:

A group of 45 House Republican lawmakers wrote President Trump Friday stating that they were “deeply concerned” by the inclusion of “sexual orientation and and gender identity language” in the U.S.-Mexico-Canada-Agreement on trade.

The representatives said the inclusion was “inappropriate and insulting to our national sovereignty” and urged Trump to remove the language. The letter suggests the president may loose some key Republican support when the deal, which would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, comes before before Congress for approval next year.

The letter is in reaction to language in Chapter 23 of the USMCA deal, which requires the the three nations to “implement policies that protect workers against employment discrimination on the basis of sex, including… sexual orientation [and] gender identity” among other requirements.

 

We are currently trying to see if the signatures match to what is on file for each GOP Representative.
