    FAST TRACKING TRADE AGREEMENTS COULD ABROGATE CONGRESSIONAL IMMIGRATION AUTHORITY



    UPDATED:

    Mon, APR 13th 2015 @ 3:47 pm EDT


    Congress will soon take up “fast track” trade promotion authority legislation that would allow President Obama to submit trade agreements to Congress for a simple-majority vote without being subject to amendment. If passed, the first likely trade deal to come up is the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which reportedly includes guest worker provisions Congress could not change.


    The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a sweeping international regulatory agreement that effects everything from the environment and energy to the minimum wage, food and immigration. If approved, it would have the force of a treaty. Its regulations would override U.S. law and the White House would not be obligated to follow any directives Congress offers on what those rules should look like.


    TPP’s provisions are largely secret but, according to Curtis Ellis of the American Jobs Alliance, the U.S. Trade Representative revealedthat "temporary entry" guest worker visas are a "key feature" of the pact. Ellis said that Obama Administration previously used the U.S.-South Korea trade pact to expand the length of time a L-1 visa holder can work in the U.S. That pact is viewed a a model for negotiating the TPP.


    Republicans have traditionally supported fast track authority for trade agreements while Democrats opposed it. The upcoming debate will have Republicans like Sen. Orrin Hatch (Utah) and Rep. Paul Ryan (Wisc.) carrying the president’s trade pact authority (TPA) legislation and incoming Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer leading the opposition. Sen. Jeff Sessions and other Republicans who oppose the immigration-related implications of the pact will join the opposition as will unions and environmental groups.


    While the Obama Administration negotiated the TPP over the last five years, business groups pushed for the inclusion of beneficial provisions. A guarantee of more high-tech and other guest workers -- something business could not obtain from Congress – is seen as topping their “wish list.” If the TPP provides for the free flow of guest workers between the signatory countries, Congress could not legislate changes after the fact. Trying to reassert it constitutionally-bestowed authority over immigration would enable one of the countries to sue the United States in a court of international law.


    Ellis concludes that “(i)t would be inexcusable for Congress to give Obama TPA so he can fast-track his immigration agenda.”

    Trade fight looms as Congress returns

    Orrin Hatch and Ron Wyden appear poised to introduce a “fast track” trade promotion authority bill along with House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.

    By DOUG PALMER and ADAM BEHSUDI

    4/13/15 5:51 AM EDT
    Updated 4/13/15 5:51 AM EDT

    A smoldering debate over trade is expected to get even hotter after Congress returns from its two-week spring break.

    Senate Finance Committee leaders Orrin Hatch and Ron Wyden appear poised to introduce a “fast track” trade promotion authority bill along with House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan. But months of closed-door negotiations were continuing on Friday, congressional aides said.


    The power, largely embraced by Republicans, pits many congressional Democrats, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren and potentially Senate Democratic leader-in-waiting Charles Schumer, against the White House.

    The measure would allow President Barack Obama to submit free trade agreements to Congress for straight up or down votes without any amendments. It’s seen as key to completing his signature 12-country trade deal known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact.


    “The Trans-Pacific Partnership has been negotiated in secret for the last five years and now Members of Congress are being asked to rubber stamp it. That is unacceptable,” said Connecticut Rep. Rosa DeLauro, leader of a vocal Democrat opposition. “Congress has the responsibility to fight for the jobs and wages of the people that we represent. Fast track for the TPP takes us out of that fight, resulting in fewer good paying jobs and lower wages.”

    Forces on both sides of the debate are ready for a fight once the bill is dropped. Proponents need to act fast or risk losing their opportunity to move the bill in the upcoming six-week work session because of competing demands for floor time.


    TPA has been used by Democratic and Republican presidents over the past 40 years to complete more than a dozen trade agreements, but opponents to giving Obama the authority call the process undemocratic. They’re prepared to intensify their fight against it this week.


    Union groups, environmental advocates and other opponents are promising an “unprecedented week of action filled with grassroots activity to pressure Congress” to kill the legislation. The actions include rallies, phone calls to members of Congress, door-to-door canvassing and petitions. Union members will hold a rally on Wednesday on Capitol Hill.


    “The main issue next week that we’ll be shouting about — and we will shout, millions of us — is that this not what democracy looks like,” Larry Cohen president of the Communications Workers of America, told POLITICO. “It’s about time we got rid of fast track.”

    But farm and business groups see the legislation as essential to expanding exports and also have been busy both on Capitol Hill and in the congressional districts.


    “The business community has been making the case for how trade and trade agreements strongly support U.S. growth and jobs and why TPA is critical for Congress to help ensure strong outcomes in trade negotiations for American businesses of all sizes, farmers and workers,” said Dave Thomas, president of the Trade Benefits America Coalition, a collection of more than 250 companies and associations. “We will continue to advocate our position until Congress passes TPA legislation.”


    The weeks ahead have all the makings of an epic trade battle not seen in Congress since 2005, when Republicans muscled through an agreement with five Central American countries over the protests of Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. So far, Pelosi has stayed relatively neutral in the fast track debate.


    Once a deal is announced, Finance Committee Chairman Hatch is expected to move quickly to a vote in the panel, where Wyden and five other Democrats could join 14 Republicans in approving the bill by a 20-6 vote. It would go next to the Senate floor where 60 votes are needed for approval because of a potential filibuster threat from Warren and others.

    The number should be achievable because Republicans control the chamber with 54 votes, almost all of whom are expected to vote for the bill. If Wyden can corral six to 10 Democratic votes, that could be enough to put it over the top, even though Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is expected to vote against the legislation.


    “I don’t think they’ll have any trouble getting to 60 votes,” said Michael Smart, a former Senate Finance Committee staffer now at Rock Creek Global Advisors, an economic policy advisory shop.

    “But what you’d like to see is a comfortable margin” to help build support among Democrats in the House.


    Republican leaders in that chamber are downplaying suggestions as many as 60 of their 244 members could vote against TPA, which would require 34 Democratic votes to squeak out a narrow majority.

    However, some Republicans are expected to oppose the measure, requiring an assist from Democrats to put it over the top.


    Estimates of potential Democratic yes votes range from as low as 10 to as high as 50, with proponents hoping for the largest bipartisan vote possible. Key to the outcome are 17 Democrats who voted for free trade agreements with Colombia, South Korea and Panama in 2011 as well as 25 more that voted for two of the pacts.

    A test of support will come in the Ways and Means Committee, where Rep. Sander Levin, the top Democrat on the panel, opted out of talks with Hatch, Wyden and Ryan on a bipartisan TPA bill.

    Levin has argued instead that Congress should wait until the final contours of the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal are clearer before approving the fast track legislation. But Republicans argue vociferously the White House can’t get a good Trans-Pacific deal until it has trade promotion authority.

    With Levin likely to oppose fast track, all eyes are on Rep. Ron Kind, a junior member of Ways and Means and chairman of the New Democrat Coalition, which is expected to provide the bulk of Democratic votes for TPA. Beyond Kind, it’s hard to identify clear Democratic votes on the panel, although several lawmakers have a track record of supporting trade pacts.


    The critical moment will be when the bill hits the floor, a test of both the White House’s ability to convince wavering Democrats to support a lame-duck president’s legacy achievement and Republican leaders to persuade their members who loathe Obama to give him a political victory.

    Multiple House Democratic aides, whose bosses are on the fence, note the extreme political difficulty that could come with voting for a TPA bill that could be only supported by 10 to 15 other Democrats.

    “This is the most difficult vote Democrats will take this Congress, by a wide margin,” one aide said, noting that unions are in lockstep on opposing the deal — even groups, like the longshoremen, who would benefit from increased trade.


    CURRENCY PROVISION: A POTENTIAL BOX OF TROUBLE


    Two big unknowns in the trade debate involve Democratic demands for renewal of Trade Adjustment Assistance to help retrain workers displaced by trade and bipartisan efforts to give a resistant Obama administration new tools to defend U.S. companies against foreign currency manipulation, an impulse aimed mainly at China.


    Congress often renews TAA along with major trade legislation, even though many Republicans are skeptical of the value of the program.


    Hatch, no fan of TAA, has signaled his willingness to move a renewal bill along with trade promotion authority. But House Republicans are expected to insist the two issues be kept separate so they have a chance to vote against the displaced worker program that dates back to the Kennedy administration. Without the program’s renewal, it’s expected to be much harder to persuade fence-sitting Democrats to vote for fast track.

    Meanwhile, Schumer, also a member of the Finance Committee, has pushed for China currency legislation to either be part of a package with trade promotion authority or to move in tandem with the bill.

    His legislation would direct the Commerce Department to treat undervalued currencies as an export subsidy so duties could be imposed on some Chinese goods.


    The administration worries that could open a Pandora’s Box of trouble with Beijing and potentially backfire on the United States. But Schumer is expected to press the issue during committee debate and could get support on the panel from Republican Sen. Rob Portman, who is facing a tough reelection battle in Ohio next year.

    He has joined many others in calling for rules against currency manipulation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which the administration opposes.


    Hatch and Wyden are expected to defend their carefully crafted work product, which builds on a bill Hatch introduced last year with former chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Ways and Means committees. Wyden has pushed to put his own mark on the bill, including a modified procedure to strip fast track protection from a trade agreement if lawmakers feel the White House has not consulted adequately or negotiating objectives are not met.


    One congressional aide said Hatch appears to have given Wyden much of what he wanted on that point, but there was no confirmation from either office.

    Another issue likely to stir debate on the Hill is an investor-state dispute settlement provision expected in the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact. The measure, included in U.S. trade pacts, allows companies or individuals to sue governments for compensation over decisions that damage the value of foreign investments they have made.


    Critics like Warren say the “investor-state dispute settlement” mechanism undermines the rights of governments to regulate; proponents reject that charge and say it gives investors some measure of confidence they will be treated fairly when they put millions, if not billions, of dollars at risk in a foreign project.


    “This deal would give protections to international corporations that are not available to United States environmental and labor groups,” the Massachusetts Democrat said in an interview with POLITICO.

    “Multinational corporations are increasingly realizing this is an opportunity to gut U.S. regulations they don’t like.”


    Once floor action begins, “the only thing that is predictable is there will be a lot of amendments offered but very few will pass,” said Bill Reinsch, president of the National Foreign Trade Council, a business group.

    Republicans Open to Giving Obama 'Fast-Track' Trade Authority

    Democrats appear skeptical of granting the president the trade promotion agreement he pushed for during the State of the Union address.

    U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman testifies before the Senate Finance Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday.

    By Gabrielle Levy
    Jan. 27, 2015 | 6:55 p.m. EST+ More

    Both sides of the Capitol were witness to an unusual scene Tuesday, as Republicans praised the efforts of a member of the Obama administration while Democrats looked on with skepticism.

    U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman testified before the Senate Finance Committee in the morning before crossing the rotunda to face questioning in front of the House Ways and Means Committee on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade deal involving 12 countries that has been under negotiation since 2005.


    Republican majorities in both committees sounded amenable to granting President Barack Obama the trade promotion agreement he pushed for during the State of the Union address last week — an approval considered essential to reaching a deal.


    Under the so-called “fast-track” authority, Congress can set the terms under which the U.S. negotiates but would strip the legislative branch of the ability to either filibuster or amend a trade agreement and require lawmakers to take an up-or-down vote.


    “When the United States sits down at the negotiating table, everybody at that table has to trust us,” said House Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis. “They have to know the deal the administration wants is the deal Congress wants. …

    We can’t be negotiating with ourselves, we have to maintain a united front.”


    [READ: Democrats Push Parental Leave for Federal Workers]


    The economies of the 12 countries involved in the TPP — Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the U.S. and Vietnam — comprise 40 percent of the global economy and a third of the world’s trade.


    Proponents of the partnership said the deal is critical to opening new markets for U.S. products, to strengthening manufacturing, encouraging job growth and protecting intellectual property.


    “Ultimately, it puts us in the driver’s seat in terms of setting the rules of the road,” Froman said.


    But Democrats, some of whom have long expressed vehement opposition to the TPP and the fast-track authority, said negotiations have been conducted under a veil of secrecy and could result in a deal that encourages job outsourcing.


    “The fast-track procedure is designed to limit public scrutiny; it gives up congressional constitutional authority to review the TPP,” said Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., a leading opponent of the TPA, in a statement following the State of the Union address.


    Members from both sides of the aisle sought increased transparency, asking Froman to grant them and their approved staff members more time to examine documents related to the negotiations.


    Supporters of the deal say a free-trade agreement in the Pacific will put pressure on China on the global market, while requiring high standards among members.


    [ALSO: Is the Senate Back to Work?]


    But the Obama administration’s refusal to label China a currency manipulator has stoked fears the deal won’t put enforceable rules in place to prevent countries from artificially deflating prices of their products, disadvantaging U.S. exports and encouraging manufacturers to move jobs overseas where environmental and labor regulations are looser.


    And Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., said he worried whether three of the countries — Brunei, Malaysia and Vietnam — are serial human rights abusers who cannot be counted on to comply with labor standards.


    Others are concerned the rules strengthening intellectual property protections would run afoul of open Internet principles and stifle innovation.


    With strong Republican support, an eventual vote on the fast-track authority will likely succeed in the House, but Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the No. 2 Republican on the Finance Committee, said he expected a struggle to get 60 votes needed to pass without threat of filibuster in the upper chamber.


    "I can't support a TPP agreement if we do not at the same time enact new statutory law that includes objective criteria to define and enforce against currency manipulation," said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.


    Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has also said he would oppose the deal.


    But House Democrats say their support will depend a lot on the process and how transparent the administration is in the ongoing negotiations.


    “The administration needs to work with members of both sides of the aisle to make sure that the process is transparent and members are fully aware of what’s being included,” said House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md. “Steps are being taken to raise the confidence and, if that occurs, I think it’s possible for a significant number of members to support both TPA and TPP.”

    Senate and House Committees could approve 'fast-track' for trade deal as early as tomorrow -- Tweet and post on Facebook TODAY!
    Dear NumbersUSA activist,

    The Senate Finance and House Ways & Means Committees could vote as early as tomorrow on legislation that would "fast-track" the Trans-Pacific Partnership being negotiated by the Obama Administration and 11 other countries. Should Congress approve "fast-track", it would grant Pres. Obama full negotiating authority over the free trade agreement, jeopardizing jobs and wages for American workers.

    President Obama has made it abundantly clear that he believes he has virtually unfettered authority to change U.S. immigration law. As we've learned from past free trade agreements, the Trans-Pacific Partnership could be used by the Administration to further reduce jobs and wages for U.S. workers and instead reserve certain jobs for foreign workers.


    Congress must not give up its authority to debate and amend the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement. Tweet and Facebook your Senators and urge them not to approve fast-tracking of the TPP!

    Lawmakers Near Deal to Give Obama Fast-Track Authority on Trade Pact

    By JONATHAN WEISMAN APRIL 16, 2015

    WASHINGTON — The leaders of Congress’s tax-writing committees neared agreement Thursday on legislation to give President Obama “fast-track” authority to negotiate an ambitious trade accord with 11 other Pacific nations, beginning what is sure to be one of the toughest legislative battles of his last 19 months in office.

    The “trade promotion authority” bill — likely to be unveiled Thursday afternoon — would give Congress the power to vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership once it is completed, but would deny lawmakers the chance to amend what would be the largest trade deal since the North American Free Trade Agreement.


    Senator Orrin Hatch, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, had to agree to stringent requirements for the trade deal to win over Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, the ranking Democrat on the finance panel. Those requirements included a human rights negotiating objective that has never existed on trade agreements, according to lawmakers involved in the talks.


    The legislation would also make any final trade agreement public for 60 days before the president signs it, and up to four months before Congress votes. If the agreement, negotiated by the United States Trade Representative, fails to meet the objectives laid out by Congress — on labor, environmental and human rights standards — a 60-vote majority in the Senate could shut off “fast-track” trade rules and open the deal to amendments.


    “We got assurances that U.S.T.R. and the president will be negotiating within the parameters defined by Congress,” said Representative Dave Reichert, Republican of Washington and a senior member of the Ways and Means Committee. Referring to the trade promotion authority, he added: “And if those parameters are somehow or in some way violated during the negotiations, if we get a product that’s not adhering to the T.P.A. agreement, than we have switches where we can cut it off.”


    Mr. Reichert said the Ways and Means Committee will formally draft the legislation next week.


    Even with those concessions, the fight to get the trade promotion bill to the president’s desk will be difficult and emotional, badly dividing the Democratic Party’s labor base and putting Hillary Clinton in a quandary. Many prominent Democrats have come out against one of the biggest priorities of their president. Representative Sander Levin of Michigan, the ranking Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, was notably absent from trade negotiations.


    The A.F.L.-C.I.O. and virtually every major union have vowed a fierce fight, including a six-figure advertising campaign to pressure 16 selected senators and 36 House members to oppose trade promotion authority, the A.F.L.-C.I.O. announced Thursday.


    “We can’t afford to pass fast track, which would lead to more lost jobs and lower wages. We want Congress to keep its leverage over trade negotiations — not rubber stamp a deal that delivers profits for global corporations, but not good jobs for working people,” said Richard Trumka, A.F.L.-C.I.O. president.

    The header for this thread says that it is confirmed that mass immigration is ALLOWED in this bill. I am confused.
