Democrats in the U.S. Congress are not the only one skeptical about President Trump’s new NAFTA deal with Mexico and Canada, and will be pushing for stricter environmental and labor provisions when they get a crack at the deal.

The president’s deal will now go to the U.S. Congress, and lawmakers like Schumer will be now have the opportunity to make changes and suggestions that suit their needs and demands.

Not all Republicans are completely onboard with Trump’s deal.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio is concerned that his states seasonal vegetable growers will be hit hard with cheap Mexican produced veggies that will flow across the border.

Rubio stated that allowing Mexican growers to “dump government subsidized produce on the U.S. market” was “unacceptable.”

This is the very same problem that Florida’s sugar growers have been dealing with the old NAFTA deal. The Mexican government, along with other foreign governments, subsidized dirt cheap sugar to be shipped and sold in the U.S., almost completely crippling U.S. sugar farmers.
