TN Work Status: President Signs United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement

The President recently signed the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, along with the leaders of Mexico and Canada. This agreement replaces the North American Free Trade Agreement, but (“NAFTA”) is largely the same agreement in many respects.  As many of our clients know, NAFTA created the TN status for Canadian and Mexican nationals to temporarily live and work in the United States. Fortunately, TN status has not been changed in the new agreement. While some sections have been repackaged and reworded, the relevant immigration NAFTA provisions remain the same. This is good news for TN candidates and employers alike who can now breathe a (at least temporary) sigh of relief.
