Import protection disguised as national security measure would set a dangerous precedent, wheat group warns.

The U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) has released public comments, including comments submitted by U.S. Wheat Associates (USW), related to its investigation into the national security implications of steel imports.

USW believes that if the U.S. goes down the path of restricting steel imports, many countries may use the same national security pretense to restrict imports from U.S. wheat farmers; after all, food security has always been tied to national security.
