- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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 stated:
- 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
- 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?
