nafa was never just about trade,it was about grouping together all three countries. it was sold as trade only that was to make more jobs,yet is a complete fail on that note.unless it was meant to give other than citizens jobs in the USA and meant to hurt the small farmers

getting rid of nafta would be great all the way around,though it is only the very rich who has benefited from it just as planned.

nafta has turned into open border where we can now see just a huge problem for the working class. when all three countries meet it is all about how to open the borders further not caring about the citizens it hurts.

this is where the dems who claim to be for working class citizens can prove it be shutting down nafta,obama was supposed to yet just another lie from this administration

Amnesty will boost the economy just like NAFTA did. Decreased wages for the middle class and poor and increased profits forth rich. All with the support of racists and religion who like the wealthy profit from the ignorance of the masses

Okay, so we understand why NAFTA was bad for the Mexican corn farmers and why it accelerated illegal migration north. But why, if it's so bad, do the Canadians not want to renegotiate it?

During the 2008 presidential election, John McCain asserted that Obama would unilaterally renegotiate NAFTA, and, according to McCain said Canada threatened to sell their oil to China instead of the US if Obama tried such a thing. Sounds to us, NAFTA is a sweet deal for Canada.

Don't agree, Malshitverde. Canada didn't get the better of the deal. The US did. We got thirty million of the most vile, disgusting, subhuman criminals in the world who every day and in every way make the US a better country.

As a retired US Border Patrol Agent - I say Clinton also sold US out when he backed Harvard University's selection of ex-Mexican "100,000 drug war dead/NAFTA pimp" Felipe Calderon as their First Angelopoulos Global Leader.

Obama gave the young ones the green light. Now we can all look forward to supporting another illegal alien minor with our tax money.
