"Today's vote is a critical victory for the border. It brings the Borderplex region one step closer to improving our competitiveness and increases the prospects for business development and expansion in our region. I'm grateful to U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and to the members of Congress who worked across party lines to get this bipartisan trade agreement passed.
