I think you missed my point:
"There is more to this story than where a car is assembled. It's about the US jobs that are created and maintained to produced a car regardless of where the final assembly takes place. It's about (US made) parts and components; the research, design, engineering, manufacturing and assembly of vehicle content (parts and components)".

I am talking Tier One and Tier Two auto suppliers. They employ hundreds of thousands in the US in good paying jobs.
