Last year Katherine Harris [R-FL] submitted a bill. H.R.2672, that would speed the merger of America, Canada, and Mexico into a union (political, economic, etc.) by 2010, without the knowledge or consent of the American people. It now resides in a House committee waiting for the appropriate moment to sneak it through.
The bill, called the North American Cooperative Security Act, is part of the plan for Building a North American Community, which is sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations and approved by the leaders of the three nations and the CEOs of multinational corporations that will benefit from this regional trading state. Financial support for this deconstruction of America is provided by Archer Daniels Midland Company and Merrill Lynch & Company.
The plan was announced as the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America by Bush, Fox of Mexico, and Martin of Canada on March 23, 2005 in Waco, Texas. All three leaders committed their nations to this union, essentially a coup d’etat without weapons, which would initially be run by trade agreements. American workers are only tools (cheap labor) in this corporate/government alliance.
The three member states would lose their remaining sovereignty when the process is finished. H.R. 2672 is taken directly from the CFR plan and will go a long way toward achieving this union, including providing support as Mexico works to secure its southern border with Guatemala and Belize. In addition, it will develop and implement “a North American immigration security strategy that works toward the development of a common security perimeter…” around the member states.
With a common security perimeter in place by 2010 the union should “move to full labor mobility between Canada and the United States…eliminating all barriers to the ability of their citizens to live and work in the other country.” This policy should be extended to Mexico when the “…wage differentials between Mexico and its two North American neighbors have diminished considerably.” [CFR plan]
Therefore, George Bush will continue to support open borders, illegal immigration, H-1B, L-1 visas, and other programs designed to lower the wages of American workers.
If you read further into the plan for Building a North American Community (pp.31.32), you will find a “suggestion” for a North American Advisory Council and a North American Inter-parliamentary Group, along the lines of the European Union. These two political constructions can then morph into law-making bodies.
And if the FTAA passes [a long shot at the moment], the regional trading state will include 34 nations of the Western Hemisphere. Chapter ll, article 4.2 of the FTAA Draft Agreement makes all laws and regulations of the member states, if applicable, subordinate to the trade agreement.
