51. NAFTA also enabled US manufactures to move to Mexico, not be bothered by labor laws
It has meant lots of young women getting seriously abused in factories just south of the border.

It has meant more pollution in border areas. Producers like places with little environmental protection regulations. There ARE rivers that flow north and bring pollution with them. Ground water does not recognize borders, so what gets in the ground in a place where factories are not well monitored, can get into water where there are rules.

NAFTA means US protective laws have become a friggin joke.
