Center Of Concern Regrets Passage Of DR-CAFTA

"The Center of Concern deeply regrets the passage of the Dominican Republic-Central American Free Trade Agreement (DR-CAFTA) by the U.S. Congress last night in a narrow vote of 217 to 215.

Despite staunch opposition by people of faith, women, workers, public health advocates, small farmers, students, and indigenous in all six DR-CAFTA countries, the Bush Administration and Republican leadership have favored the interests of a narrow minority at the expense of many."
