Because if Mexico fails to relentlessly enforce the USMCA, the new trade agreement will be as big a failure as the old.
NAFTA displaced 2 million Mexican family farmers as U.S. agricultural products, sometimes subsidized, flowed tariff-free south of the border.

Mexico’s recently elected president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has yet to comment on the USMCA's energy-related provisions.
