House conservatives protest LGBT protection in Mexico-Canada trade deal

By ALEXANDER PANETTA and LAUREN GARDNER 11/16/2018 12:49 PM EST

Protections in the new North American trade pact for LGBTQ people are roiling conservative lawmakers in the House, who are urging President Donald Trump to rescind them.

They are displeased that the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement contains requirements that workers be protected from discrimination on the basis of sex, including sexual orientation and gender identity.

“A trade agreement is no place for the adoption of social policy,” reads the letter, which carries the names of 40 lawmakers and was sent Friday. “It is especially inappropriate and insulting to our sovereignty to needlessly submit to social policies which the United States Congress has so far explicitly refused to accept.”

1. Ahhhh, another reason to never trust repugs...bigotry still lives on...

These poor excuses for human beings need to be censored or voted out of office or something. Hatred and bigotry seems to be the only rationale why these 40 are against this language. Again, my prior arguments in using the word 'conservatives' to describe these people is misguided and wrong. The proper word to use is 'House bigots protest LGBT protection in Mexico-Canada trade deal'.

This reflects more accurately the repug. party.

4. So the Republicans acknowledge that Mexico and Canada are more advanced than the U.S.?

Noted.
