US senators want to increase pressure on Mexico in potatoes-for-avocados dispute

Several US senators issued a letter to the USDA and US Trade Representative on August 18th, intent on increasing the pressure on Mexico for more access to US potato producers.

Currently, US fresh potatoes can only be sold within 26 kilometers of US-Mexico border. That contradicts a 2014 Mexican government decision to allow fresh US potatoes to be sold throughout Mexico, which was later overturned by a Mexican court. The litigation regarding the ruling remains ongoing and is currently in the Mexican Supreme Court.

US Senators Mike Crapo, Cory Gardner and James Risch wrote a letter to Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer urging them to consider all methods available to resolve the dispute.
