Erase Borders and Integrate Canada and Mexico

but the loss of sovereignty by Mexico and Canada, in an arrangement where Washington

President Bush is pursuing a globalist agenda to create a North American
Union, effectively erasing our borders with both Mexico and Canada. This was
the hidden agenda behind the Bush administration's true open borders policy.
Secretly, the Bush administration is pursuing a policy to expand NAFTA to include
Canada, setting the stage for North American Union designed to encompass the
U.S., Canada, and Mexico. What the Bush administration truly wants is the free,
unimpeded movement of people across open borders with Mexico and Canada.
President Bush intends to abrogate U.S. sovereignty to the North American Union,
a new economic and political entity which the President is quietly forming,
much as the European Union has formed.
The blueprint President Bush is following was laid out in a 2005 report entitled
"Building a North American Community" published by the left-of-center
Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The CFR report connects the dots between
the Bush administration's actual policy on illegal immigration and the drive
to create the North American Union:
At their meeting in Waco, Texas, at the end of March 2005, U.S. President
George W. Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and Canadian Prime Minister
Paul Martin committed their governments to a path of cooperation and joint
action. We welcome this important development and offer this report to add
urgency and specific recommendations to strengthen their efforts.
What is the plan? Simple, erase the borders. The plan is contained in a "Security
and Prosperity Partnership of North America" little noticed when President
Bush and President Fox created it in March 2005:
In March 2005, the leaders of Canada, Mexico, and the United States adopted
a Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), establishing
ministerial-level working groups to address key security and economic issues
facing North America and setting a short deadline for reporting progress back
to their governments. President Bush described the significance of the SPP
as putting forward a common commitment "to markets and democracy, freedom
and trade, and mutual prosperity and security." The policy framework
articulated by the three leaders is a significant commitment that will benefit
from broad discussion and advice. The Task Force is pleased to provide specific
advice on how the partnership can be pursued and realized.
To that end, the Task Force proposes the creation by 2010 of a North American
community to enhance security, prosperity, and opportunity. We propose a community
based on the principle affirmed in the March 2005 Joint Statement of the three
leaders that "our security and prosperity are mutually dependent and
complementary." Its boundaries will be defined by a common external tariff
and an outer security perimeter within which the movement of people, products,
and capital will be legal, orderly and safe. Its goal will be to guarantee
a free, secure, just, and prosperous North America.
The perspective of the CFR report allows us to see President Bush's speech
to the nation as nothing more than public relations posturing and window dressing.
No wonder President Vincente Fox called President Bush in a panic after the
speech. How could the President go back on his word to Mexico by actually securing
our border? Not to worry, President Bush reassured President Fox. The National
Guard on the border were only temporary, meant to last only as long until the
public forgets about the issue, as has always been the case in the past.
The North American Union plan, which Vincente Fox has every reason to presume
President Bush is still following, calls for the only border to be around the
North American Union -- not between any of these countries. Or, as the CFR report
The three governments should commit themselves to the long-term goal of dramatically
diminishing the need for the current intensity of the governments’ physical
control of cross-border traffic, travel, and trade within North America. A
long-term goal for a North American border action plan should be joint screening
of travelers from third countries at their first point of entry into North
America and the elimination of most controls over the temporary movement of
these travelers within North America.
Discovering connections like this between the CFR recommendations and Bush
administration policy gives credence to the argument that President Bush favors
amnesty and open borders, as he originally said. Moreover, President Bush most
likely continues to consider groups such as the Minuteman Project to be "vigilantes,"
as he has also said in response to a reporter's question during the March 2005
meeting with President Fox.
Why doesn’t President Bush just tell the truth? His secret agenda is
to dissolve the United States of America into the North American Union. The
administration has no intent to secure the border, or to enforce rigorously
existing immigration laws. Securing our border with Mexico is evidently one
of the jobs President Bush just won't do. If a fence is going to be built on
our border with Mexico, evidently the Minuteman Project is going to have to
build the fence themselves. Will President Bush protect America's sovereignty,
or is this too a job the Minuteman Project will have to do for him?
The Plan to Replace the Dollar With the 'Amero'
by Jerome R. Corsi
The idea to form the North American Union as a super-NAFTA knitting together
Canada, the United States and Mexico into a super-regional political and economic
entity was a key agreement resulting from the March 2005 meeting
held at Baylor University in Waco, Tex., between President Bush, President Fox
and Prime Minister Martin.
A joint statement published
by the three presidents following their Baylor University summit announced the
formation of an initial entity called, “The Security and Prosperity Partnership
of North America” (SPP). The joint statement termed the SPP a “trilateral
partnership” that was aimed at producing a North American security plan
as well as providing free market movement of people, capital, and trade across
the borders between the three NAFTA partners:
We will establish a common approach to security to protect North America
from external threats, prevent and respond to threats within North America,
and further streamline the secure and efficient movement of legitimate, low-risk
traffic across our borders.
A working agenda was established:
We will establish working parties led by our ministers and secretaries that
will consult with stakeholders in our respective countries. These working
parties will respond to the priorities of our people and our businesses, and
will set specific, measurable, and achievable goals.
The U.S. Department of Commerce has produced a SPP website,
which documents how the U.S. has implemented the SPP directive into an extensive
Following the March 2005 meeting in Waco, Tex., the Council on Foreign Relations
(CFR) published in May 2005 a task force report titled “Building
a North American Community.” We have already
documented that this CFR task force report calls for a plan
to create by 2010 a redefinition of boundaries such that the primary immigration
control will be around the three countries of the North American Union, not
between the three countries. We have argued that a likely reason President Bush
has not secured our border with Mexico is that the administration is pushing
for the establishment of the North American Union.
The North American Union is envisioned to create a super-regional political
authority that could override the sovereignty of the United States on immigration
policy and trade issues. In his June 2005 testimony
to the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Robert Pastor, the Director
of the Center for North American Studies at American University, stated clearly
the view that the North American Union would need a super-regional governance
board to make sure the United States does not dominate the proposed North American
Union once it is formed:
NAFTA has failed to create a partnership because North American governments
have not changed the way they deal with one another. Dual bilateralism, driven
by U.S. power, continue to govern and irritate. Adding a third party to bilateral
disputes vastly increases the chance that rules, not power, will resolve problems.
This trilateral approach should be institutionalized in a new North American
Advisory Council. Unlike the sprawling and intrusive European Commission,
the Commission or Council should be lean, independent, and advisory, composed
of 15 distinguished individuals, 5 from each nation. Its principal purpose
should be to prepare a North American agenda for leaders to consider at biannual
summits and to monitor the implementation of the resulting agreements.
Pastor was a vice chairman of the CFR task force that produced the report “Building
a North American Union.”
Pastor also proposed the creation of a Permanent Tribunal on Trade and Investment
with the view that “a permanent court would permit the accumulation of
precedent and lay the groundwork for North American business law.” The
intent is for this North American Union Tribunal would have supremacy over the
U.S. Supreme Court on issues affecting the North American Union, to prevent
U.S. power from “irritating” and retarding the progress of uniting
Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. into a new 21st century super-regional governing
Robert Pastor also advises the creation of a North American Parliamentary Group
to make sure the U.S. Congress does not impede progress in the envisioned North
American Union. He has also called
for the creation of a North American Customs and Immigration Service which
would have authority over U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) within
the Department of Homeland Security.
Pastor’s 2001 book “Toward
a North American Community” called for the creation of a North American
Union that would perfect the defects Pastor believes limit the progress of the
European Union. Much of Pastor’s thinking appears aimed at limiting the
power and sovereignty of the United States as we enter this new super-regional
entity. Pastor has also called for the creation of a new currency which he has
coined the “Amero,” a currency that is proposed to replace the U.S.
dollar, the Canadian dollar, and the Mexican peso.
If President Bush had run openly in 2004 on the proposition that a prime objective
of his second term was to form the North American Union and to supplant the
dollar with the “Amero,” we doubt very much that President Bush
would have carried Ohio, let alone half of the Red State majority he needed
to win re-election. Pursuing any plan that would legalize the conservatively
estimated 12 million illegal aliens now in the United States could well spell
election disaster for the Republican Party in 2006, especially for the House
of Representative where every seat is up for grabs.
