Members of Congress alert the President

Liberty Counsel Action

Members of Congress have alerted President Trump of their opposition to pro-LGBT provisions inserted into the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). These provisions would establish special rights for "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" as the supreme law of the land via the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution.
 
Liberty Counsel Action is petitioning President Trump and Members of Congress to remove the language from the trade agreement. See my message below on this dangerous circumvention of the legislative process — Mat.

Next week, President Trump, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are expected to sign the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) negotiated earlier this fall. The deal must be signed by December 1st.

One recently uncovered major issue is that the proposed USMCA includes a provision advancing the radical LGBT agenda by elevating "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to a protected class that is inconsistent with many existing laws, precedent, and religious liberty and conscience rights.
 
That provision is also contradictory to the Trump administration's current efforts to "restore the historic definition of 'sex' to a person's anatomical sex at birth." And, it will most certainly hamper the administration's efforts to roll back the Obama-era changes to non-discrimination policies that added "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" language to existing federal laws.
 
That's why 38 GOP Members of Congress wrote a letter to President Trump urging him to remove this troubling language. The letter, in part, states:

"At the same time your Administration is carrying out a cohesive agenda regarding policies surrounding sexual orientation and gender identity, in the Department of Justice and Health and Human Services specifically, it is deeply troubling that the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has included contradictory language in the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement."
 
The letter goes on to state: "A trade agreement is no place for the adoption of social policy. It is especially inappropriate and insulting to our sovereignty to needlessly submit to social policies which the United States has so far explicitly refused to accept."

The lawmakers warned that including "sex discrimination" in the USMCA could "cause unnecessary confusion in future international treaties as well as domestic laws and policies," in addition to setting a "dangerous precedent for courts and future Administrations to build upon."  Liberty Counsel Action has used similar language in warning Americans about this dangerous language.

The Members of Congress "strongly" urges the President to remove the questionable articles.

Liberty Counsel Action is also calling on President Trump to remove the language placing this radical social policy into law.

President Trump must insist that social policy that overrides our sovereignty be removed from the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. These provisions are a Trojan Horse that could be used like a wrecking ball against federal and state laws to advance an LGBT agenda on private employers. This LGBT social policy language is a poison pill and must be removed.
 
Time is of the essence! We need 20,000 signers immediately for our initial impact!  Click here to read and add your name to our "Stop the USMCA from containing a radical LGBT provision" petition.  

Thank you for taking immediate action. 

Yours for liberty,

P.S. The articles elevating "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to a protected class in the proposed trade agreement must be removed. After signing the petition, please consider immediately expanding your impact on the issue by sending a targeted letter to key congressional leaders.
