The North American Union Movement is Alive and Well

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro hosted a conference celebrating the 20th anniversary of the creation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). In a welcoming address he called for enhancing the tri-national agreement.

Representing the Mexican government, Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan announced a major trade enhancement and integration agreement with the United States. He said that the trade destined for the U.S. market that arrives at a Mexican sea port will be inspected on arrival (presumably by representatives of both the Mexican and U.S. governments) and then it would be released to travel into the U.S. without further inspection. This will give significant advantages to Mexican ports over U.S. West Coast ports for shipments from Asia destined for East of the Mississippi.

According to Mexico Trucker Online Amb. Sarukhan also advocated a process of backdoor integration towards achievement of a seamless North American Union through this type of trade arrangements because of the lack of political support in the United States for expanding NAFTA. He is quoted as saying, “I don’t think there’s the interest in deepening NAFTA, but the beauty of TPP [Trans Pacific Partnership] is we can do it through the back door, by having Mexico, Canada, and the United States join the TPP and bring us up from the bootstraps.”

      As a retired over the road driver,I can tell you that Mexican trucks are unsafe. Their drivers are as well. Mexico drivers and their equipment do not have to meet the strict regulations that American drivers do. Many companies have hired Mexican drivers at lower pay scale than American drivers get. They do this legally by renting a small piece of land in Mexico & calling it a drop yard. which may or may not be used. I found Mexican drivers to be hostile to American drivers saying things such as,”we are taking your jobs & you can do nothing about it. Get use to it.”They are to stupid to understand that when we go down,they go with us!!!

    Why in heaven’s name would countries like the US and Canada want anything to do with the corrupt, lawless, narco-state below our southern border? NAFTA was a disaster. Ross Perot had it right…”The great sucking sound you hear is…” To align ourselves with Mexico would be as bad as a partnership with any middle eastern country. What could our elected officials be thinking? The drug cartels would have a parade in our honor. They’d be home free and every person in Mexico would be on the dole here. This is the most unthinkable, insane idea ever hatched. We are well on the way to being a nation of unenforced laws. To sgree to the TTP or a North American Union would be the death of us as a sovereign nation. I still have enough trust in the American people not to let this happen.

    Mexico plays us for suckers because we’re stupid enough to send our jobs there and then we take in all their poorest and undereducated people and make them eligible for all kinds of welfare programs at our expense. Then those same people send twenty billion of our dollars back to Mexico every year. They say jump and we have a lot of Americans who ask how high. It’s like when the president of Mexico was addressing our Congress a couple years ago and had the nerve to criticize our treatment of illegals. Meanwhile Mexico has been repeatedly condemned by Amnesty International for their treatment of those who cross their southern border trying to get here. A.I. has said that Mexican officials turn a “blind eye” to robbery, rape, even murder. There is a whole organized group of relatives who have toured sections of Mexico looking for their loved ones in the last places they disappeared without a trace.
