Takes away the incentive for companies to outsource jobs overseas. And helps improve the environment.

Just think of China. Think of how much this country has destroyed the world, its people, its natural beauty. Think about the lack of purity in their foods that they export to us. A ban should be imposed.

How another country treats their environment is none of the USA's concern, as long as the products they export to the US are safe.
