Wyden Statement on Mexican Forced Labor Ban

Washington, D.C. — Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., released the following statement on a new regulation in Mexico banning the import of products made with forced labor:

“Mexico’s new rule barring the import of products made with forced labor is an important step to expunging this morally abhorrent and unfair trade practice from North American supply chains.  As the United States continues to fully enforce our own ban on forced labor, having one of our close trading partners and a major player in the automotive supply chain take similar action is critical to leveling the playing field for workers across North America.”
