“If only people know the benefits of opening the borders and working together, improving the quality of life for all, then no one would be opposed to a North American Union.”

Mayor Evaristo Lenin Perez of Ciudad Acuna, Mexico said the above to World Net Daily ‘after calling for a swift move toward a European Union style merger of the U.S., Canada and Mexico at a Great Plains Industrial Conference in Denver, Colorado recently.’ He said, “It’s a model we need to follow quickly.”

The mayor added: “This is not a new idea. In fact where there are border meetings between border governors or border legislatures this is a topic that continually comes up.”

Perez decided to promote a North American Union at the conference because “It’s as good as anyplace and the right people are here.” [1]

By right people he means people engaged in building, harmonizing and integrating the infrastructure and processes of the three nations of Mexico, Canada and the United States. When that is complete, the result is a functional economic union of North America.

Then, since three separate governments aren’t competent or coordinated enough to govern an economic region as large as North America, the government/corporate alliance creates institutions to handle the job. The progression continues on a path toward the deconstruction of the sovereign member states and the growth of the corporate regional state.

Mayor Perez and a large part of Mexico want this union to happen quickly. They will be the ones who will benefit, besides corporations. When you live in a corrupt, poverty stricken, hopeless nation like Mexico, the United States is the promised land. And the big losers will be American citizens.

Mexicans have been crossing the border with the United States illegally in large numbers for the last four decades, looking for decent-paying jobs (by Mexican standards). Now we have a Southwestern U.S. that looks like Mexico in many places.

These immigrants have maintained their language and culture. They have no intention of assimilating. They realize that by demographic dominance they can retake this part of America (lost in the Mexican/American War of 1848), rejoin their homeland or simply function as the northern part of Mexico. A North American Union with open borders and the free movement of people across the continent is the best thing that could happen to a Mexican.

George Bush, who also wants a North American Union as soon as possible, made an agreement for a Totalization of Social Security with Mexico in 2004 but has not submitted it to Congress. A call for this totalization program can be found in the Council on Foreign Relations Task Force report on Building a North American Community. It would combine earnings for citizens of Mexico and the United States who have worked in both countries. The U.S. needs 60 million or more workers over the next few decades to replace the retiring baby boomers and pay into social security.

If the totalization agreement is approved and an immigration (amnesty) bill is passed, many of the 20 million? illegal immigrants who have contributed social security taxes, even if by use of fraud or stolen cards, would receive credit. And they would be eligible to collect social security with a fraction of the required credits as Americans must have. Also, dependents in Mexico could collect survivors benefits. [3]

So which part of the North American Union do you think Mexicans will want to work and retire in?
