A number of websites offer complaints and opposition against Obama’s efforts to pass an amnesty bill and his efforts to pursue aid to all Mexican’s efforts to “live and work” in the United States. While these anti-immigration groups make a lot of noise and win some temporary battles, the president is already working on a project with Canada and Mexico to open the interior borders of the three nations. Eventually all “citizens” of North America will be able to have free movement throughout the continent without ever being asked to provide an ID card, since all 3 nations will be “secured” behind a common outer security perimeter (North American Perimeter).
The Council on Foreign Relations produced the road map for this North American Community in 2005, after Bush and his partners agreed to the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP). Here is one of three definitions of the key piece to this North American Community, a North American perimeter:
In this road map, the three leaders of this new community stated that “our security and prosperity are mutually dependent and complementary.”
“It’s 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, and prosperous North America.”
Note that the reference is to North America, not the individual nations. The goal, according to this road map, is for residents to think of themselves as North Americans. Plans are to merge the continent, as in the European Union (pp. 27-32).
On page 8 of the plan, “Establish a common security perimeter by 2010. The governments of Canada, Mexico, and the United States should articulate as their long-term goal a common security perimeter for North America.”
The goal-If a foreign visitor arrives in any part of North America, the visitor can travel throughout the continent without needing any other ID. Visitors will be pre-cleared for all of North America. The State Departments of George W. Bush and Barack Obama both have this document hidden somewhere on their location so you might have to request it through the Freedom of Information Act. However, I have a permanent copy of the document in the link above.
This State Department document (2005) explains explicitly what this integrated community means:
“The key recommendation…was for the three nations to move toward establishing a common security perimeter by 2010. ”’It is important to commit themselves to security within that zone, thereby alleviating the need to build some barriers at our mutual borders…It implies that we understand the nature of the goods and people that are coming into the continent.’”
“The task force also recommended the development of a ‘North American Border Pass’ to expedite pass through customs, immigration and airport security throughout the continent; additional border facilities to allow for growth in trade…
Again from the CFR plan for Building a North American Community:
“Like free trade a decade ago, a common security perimeter for North America is an ambitious but achievable goal that will require specific policy, statutory, and procedural changes in all three nations.” (page 8 North American Community)
President Obama has ignored the legal part in which he must get approval by Congress first. Instead, he is going to complete this perimeter and make drastic changes along our borders after already getting the leaders of Canada and Mexico to agree. The work on this perimeter is under construction now with Canada. Mexico and the U.S. are also improving the border crossings on their common border and building new entry points along the border in anticipation of the massive movement of people, commerce, electricity, fuel pipelines, etc. across our southern border.
Obama describes the plan, taken from the plan for Building the North American Community. Excerpts from the official joint announcement on 02/04/2011 includes planning and building this new common border by the three nations. The working groups should be under way now at the U.S Department of Commerce, most likely under the head of Geri Word, who began the project under George W. Bush in 2005.
Another report from the WSJ on this perimeter project:
‘”To preserve and extend the benefits our close relationship has helped bring to Americans alike, we intend to pursue a perimeter approach to security, working together within, at, and away from the borders of our two countries to enhance our security and and accelerate the legitimate flow of people, goods, and services between our two countries. We intend to do so in partnership (integration), and in ways that support economic competitiveness, job creation, and prosperity.”
This common outer border is supposed to be approved by Congress before starting such a project but Obama decided, along with Prime Minister Harper of Canada, to finish the perimeter and have a fait accompli waiting for a compliant congress to approve a project that is already operational.
President Calderon of Mexico had earlier agreed to other bi-lateral agreements with the U.S. to make significant changes to the U.S./Mexican border, including a Mexico with all of its citizens and foreign residents with biometric ID cards, already in progress since Jan. 19, 2011. Now Mexicans with biometric ID cards can apply for a North American Border Pass and use kiosks to check themselves into America. Here is more info on the Mexican project, directly from the CFR plan.
The U.S. (Real ID), Canada and Mexico have, or will have, secure IDs by 2015, allowing them to apply for travel through all of North America, along with pre-cleared cargo, trains and buses. Then after each nation can declare they have “operational control of their border”, checks will no longer be done as in the European Union’s Schengen Agreement with their outer perimeter.
Here are two pieces of legislation that call for a common security perimeter around North America under the responsibility of our Secretary of the U.S. Department of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security. It also directs them to have “operational control of our borders” before we can open our borders to Canada and Mexico. See the last part of this article for access to the right section of each piece of legislation.
If any of these bills had passed under Bush, by 2010 (the first target date) we could be talking of one North America with one shared border by now.
President Obama embraced the integration of North America in his briefing with George W. Bush right after his 2008 election, along with the further integration of the 34 nations of the Americas. Obama has a good chance of making the Canadian part of this perimeter finished in his second term of office while millions of citizens of Mexico could also be traveling freely across our southern border by vehicle, using their vehicles with an E-pass system to continue without stopping for searches. Pre-cleared cars, buses, trains and trucks will cross over into the U.S. nonstop in special lanes.
Before Obama finishes his second term in office, the upper two thirds of North America will already have Canadians and Americans crossing each others’ northern border, including pre-cleared cargo. Note that SENTRI, NEXUS, FAST and Global Entry Programs can be found on pages 8-10 in the CFR plan for building a North American Community. And you can find an integrated North America with a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter on page 3. These are the last two steps before becoming one political entity but, in this case, the multicultural, multilingual three nations will break into fragments as the overburdened planet becomes undone.
This Trojan Horse has been examined and documented but opponents seem unable to see the danger hidden in plain view. This project was placed in all immigration bills under Bush and the work of Senator John McCain but without success. This 32-page document, courtesy of North American corporate CEOs, will be the one that makes the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution merely historical artifacts.
By 2050 the United States will, de facto, no longer exist. Americans will be strangers in their own land.
After all, that is the plan.
