"Deep Integration"—the Anti-Democratic Expansion of NAFTA

The North American Free Trade Agreement is the most advanced experience of the U.S.-led free trade model in the world. The expansion of NAFTA into the Security and Prosperity Partnership reveals the road ahead for other nations entering into Free Trade Agreements. It is not a road most nations—or the U.S. public—would knowingly take if they knew where it led...Read more...

Continental Merger

The U.S. media paid scant attention this past August when President George W. Bush headed for a meeting of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (more commonly referred to as the SPP) in Canada. The two-day summit (August 20-21) with Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon and Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper, as well as top government ministers and business leaders, was conducted behind a cordon of security and secrecy at a luxury resort in Montebello, Quebec, down the Ottawa River from the Canadian capital...http://www.thenewamerican.com/node/5807

SPP: The Globalization of North America Continues

The ultracons have it all wrong and the neocons are glad that they do.

The straw dog that the ultracons are beating to death in print and on the Internet is the chimerical North American Union, purported to be a supranational state that intends to override the sovereignty of the United States and subject all the citizens of the empire to the interests of Canada and/or Mexico.

Alas, the fate of straw dogs is always the same; they are cursed and beaten and then unceremoniously discarded after they have served their purpose...http://mrzine.monthlyreview.org/vogel230907.html

The Road to Serfdom Is Indeed a Conspiratorial Highway

Dalmia and Gilroy are either weak on their own analytical skills or they have an exceptionally low opinion of the reasoning powers of LA Times readers. The fact is, the NAFTA agreement did not just show up overnight on the doorstep of Congress in 1993. The I-69 corridor planning in 1991 was concomitant with the negotiations and planning of the NAFTA agreement done during the first Bush administration — before it was passed with the essential aid of Clinton The First in 1993. NAFTA was, in the main, a done deal when the I-69 work was breezing through Congress as part of some pork-laden highway bill...http://www.jbs.org/node/5657

Eagle Forum, Phyllis Schlafly
At President Bush's press conference in Canada last month, Fox News asked him this question: "Can you say today that the Security and Prosperity Partnership is NOT a prelude to a North American Union, similar to a European Union?" Bush did NOT deny that goal; he just ridiculed the question. Will you assure us that you will abolish all plans to promote the economic integration of North America, which consists of open borders among the United States, Canada and Mexico...http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=57685

A Sleeper Amnesty: Time to Wake Up from the DREAM Act

Just three months after the Senate immigration bill met its well-deserved end, amnesty advocates in the U.S. Congress resumed their efforts. Recently, Senator Richard Durbin (D–IL) announced on the Senate floor his intention to offer the Development, Relief, and Edu­cation for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act as an amend­ment to the defense authorization bill.
The DREAM Act (S. 774) is a nightmare. It is a mas­sive amnesty that extends to the millions of illegal aliens who entered the United States before the age of 16...http://www.heritage.org/Research/Immigration/bg2069.cfm

Senators from both parties, citing safety concerns, attached a measure to a transportation spending bill to block funding for the cross-border trucking program.

“Mexico does not end at the border. Wherever there is a Mexican, Mexico will be there”.

“The President of Mexico’s speech was just brought to my attention. I am shocked and appalled at his comments. It amounts to him declaring that Mexicans in the US do not have to live by our laws! Further he denounces America for trying to secure its own borders. That’s pretty hypocritical when Mexico has secured its southern border with its military– Rep.

Eroding sovereignty

A likely upshot of President Bush's meetings this week with his Canadian and Mexican counterparts in Montebello, Canada, will be a further impetus to the effort to engage in what is euphemistically called the "harmonization" of the three countries' economies, regulatory systems and policies. The effect will be to contribute to what is on track to become one of the most worrying legacies of George W. Bush's presidency: a significant, and possibly irreversible, erosion in the nation's sovereignty...http://washingtontimes.com/article/20070821/COMMENTARY03/108210002/1012
