Religious groups oppose State Department’s upgrade of Malaysia’s trafficking status

Maryknoll and 13 other religious organizations sent a letter to members of a Congressional conference committee to express deep moral concerns related to H.R. 644, the “Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015” (also referred to as the Customs bill), particularly that the final bill could weaken strong anti-trafficking provision in the trade promotion authority bill signed into law June 29.

Maryknoll, colleagues alarmed by "Fast Track" potential consequences

A number of faith leaders representing religious communions, denominations, and organizations across the country spoke out on April 16, 2015 to voice their concern about the newly released Trade Promotion Authority bill, or Fast Track, which would give the president unilateral power to sign the secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement without a chance for debate in Congress.
