Americans watch the news about our uncontrolled borders being overrun from Mexico and they wonder why nothing has been done to solve the problem.
So they plead for the President to do something or ask their representatives to pass laws and enforce them. And all they get from George Bush are a few comments about bringing illegals out of the shadows and the need for a “comprehensive immigration law.” Key members of Congress echo this mantra knowing full well that the result of such a bill would add up to 20 million people (for starters) who will continue taxing our overburdened social services and law enforcment agencies, plus lowering wages for American workers.
George Bush could have stopped this problem (inherited from Clinton) by simply enforcing the laws already on the books. But globalization true believer Bush and his allies in Congress are part of a corporate/government alliance working to merge the three nations of North America into an “economic union” (initially) and the Council on Foreign Relations plan for Building this North American Community includes the following goal:
“Move to full labor mobility between Canada and the United States. To make companies based in NORTH AMERICA as COMPETITIVE as possible in the GLOBAL ECONOMY, Canada and the United States should consider ELIMINATING ALL BARRIERS TO THE ABILITY OF THEIR CITIZENS TO LIVE AND WORK IN THE OTHER COUNTRY.”
“In the long term, the two countries should work to extend this policy to MEXICO as well, though doing so will not be practical until WAGE DIFFERENTIALS BETWEEN MEXICO AND ITS TWO NORTH AMERICAN NEIGHBORS HAVE DIMINISHED CONSIDERABLY.” pp.27,28 [See Building a North American Community at ‘important links’ highlighted below.)
The blueprint for this union is found in the Council on Foreign Relations Task Force plan for Building a North American Community and provides “SPECIFIC” advice for implementing the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), which was SIGNED by George Bush and the leaders of Canada and Mexico at Waco, Texas on March 23, 2005.
The documentation linking the SPP and Building a North American Community can be found on a U.S. Department of State embassy website. Be sure to click on the two important links at the bottom of the page. (This site, like other government sites recently, have a tendency to become “unavailable” so I recommend that you make copies of the documents.)
Some of the advice for completing this union can be found in “comprehensive immigration bills” over the past two years, including H.R. 1645, THE STRIVE ACT OF 2007.
Bush has done nothing to secure the border during his term. Instead, he has done the opposite, such as reducing 10,000 new border patrol agents authorized by Congress over a five-year period down to 210 per year (2006), not enough to replace those leaving the force. And his efforts to build the mandated fence have been less than enthusiastic.
Bush needs massive immigration to feed the transnational corporations love of cheap, temporary labor and he wants to include that labor in the U.S. SOCIAL SECURITY system to pay for the retirement of 78 million baby boomers. Some estimates put the minimum amount of new workers at 60 million over the next 40 years, mostly from Mexico and perhaps Central and South America, depending on the progress of the FTAA.

Demographically the United States will change dramatically. In much of the region Spanish will be THE LANGUAGE spoken. George Bush has consistently supported open borders and this transformation of America. In a speech to Hispanics in Miami, he said:
“We’re now one of the largest Spanish-speaking nations in the world. We’re a major source of Latin music, journalism, and culture. Just go to Miami, or San Antonio, Los Angeles, Chicago, or West New York, New Jersey…and close your eyes and listen. You could just as easily be in Santo Domingo or Santiago or San Miguel de Allende. For years, our nation has debated this change-some have praised it and others have resented it. By nominating me, my party has made a choice to welcome the New America.” [July 23, 2001, National Review, Bush’s Latin Beat: A Vision, but a faulty one-George W. Bush seeks united Americas (FTAA) to compete with Europe and Far East, John O’Sullivan]
Bush has made it clear that he does not want to build a wall on the border with Mexico (A virtual fence is acceptable, though):
“Oh, I know there’s some voices who want to wall us off from Mexico. They want to build a wall. I say to them, they want to condemn our neighbors to the south in poverty, and I refuse to accept that isolationist and protectionist policy.”
“And that’s why it’s so important for us to TEAR DOWN BARRIERS AND WALLS that might SEPARATE MEXICO FROM THE UNITED STATES. And that’s why it’s so important for us to stand strong when it comes to free trade (and labor mobility in North America) with our neighbors to the south.” (Photo: Bush wishing he could tear down that wall.)
“I know there are some in this world and our country who want to build walls between Mexico and the United States. I want to remind people: FEARFUL PEOPLE BUILD WALLS; CONFIDENT PEOPLE TEAR THEM DOWN.”
Felipe Calderon, President of Mexico, was speaking for Bush and the Prime Minister of Canada when he made this statement:
“In the coming two decades, I envision the whole North American region as a single region (union) with a ‘free market,’ not just in goods, services and investments, but a FREE LABOR MARKET like the European Union.”
