Mexico’s President Urges Quick U.S. Ratification of Trade Deal

MEXICO CITY—Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has urged U.S. House Democrats to ratify the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, a key engine for Mexico’s faltering economy, saying his country has met its commitments regarding labor issues.
