The North American Union 'Matrix', part 9
By Steven Yates, NewsWithViews.com, June 5, 2006
Considering the 614-page bill the Senate just passed, here are some key elements.
(1) It’s an amnesty bill. Period. Illegal aliens who have been in the U.S. for five years or more (around 60 percent) would receive amnesty. Those here two to five years (another 25 percent) would have to go to a “port of entry” for “temporary work permits.” They would spend six years in a provisional status and then become legal permanent residents (LPRs). In five more years, they would become U.S. citizens.... Those who become U.S. citizens can continue bringing in relatives indefinitely.
CNN’s Lou Dobbs called the programs this bill sets up “full amnesty for all illegal aliens in this country, even though nobody knows whether the number is 11 million, 12 million or 20 million.” More illegals are crossing our porous Southern border each day. Charles Hurt, writing in The Washington Times, informs us that this bill “would more than double the flow of legal immigration into the United States each year and dramatically lower the skill level of those immigrants…."...
(2) According to the Congressional Budget Office, the earned-income tax credit to be paid out to those who entered this country illegally will be at least $29 billion over 10 years. The earned-income tax credit is paid to low wage earners—which nearly all illegals are. By the end of year 20, the cost could skyrocket to over $50 billion in a single year, as more ex-illegals and new immigrants learn to work the system.... Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation, one of the nation’s leading authorities on welfare reform, has called this bill a “fiscal catastrophe” in the making. There are provisions offering Social Security to illegals despite the likelihood of this system going belly-up when enough Baby Boomers retire and try to collect from it. Even if they obtained work through stolen or forged documents. Rector estimates that after 20 years of the programs created by this bill, around 103 [million] immigrants would have entered the U.S. or achieved legal status. That is over a third of the present population of this country!
(3) Under an AgJOBS provision, illegal alien agricultural workers who have worked 150 ‘workdays’ over the last two years will receive a ‘blue card’ allowing them to live and work here permanently....
(4) Ex-illegals will be eligible for in-state tuition at public colleges and universities and even receive Stafford loans and other kinds of federal assistance under Title VI of the Higher Education Act of 1965...
My main source here: Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), “Immigration Bill Is Worse Than You Think,” Human Events Online, May 25, 2006. (Other sources include an article by Robert Rector and several items from The Washington Times.) Sessions writes interestingly, “The legislation has an incredible number of problems with it. Some … can only be considered deliberate.” And near the end, “It is clear the people who drafted this legislation had an agenda and the agenda was not to meet the expectations of the American people. The agenda was to create a façade and appearance of enforcement … When you get into … the bill and study it, tucked away here and there are laws that eviscerate and eliminate the real effectiveness of those provisions. It was carefully done and deliberately done.”...
Jerome R. Corsi (author of Unfit to Command and Black Gold Stranglehold) nails things down.... He correctly diagnoses our government’s refusal to do anything substantial to protect our Southern border as “globalist agenda to create a North American Union, effectively erasing our borders with both Mexico and Canada…. Secretly, the Bush Administration is pursuing a policy to expand NAFTA politically, setting the stages for a North American Union designed to encompass the U.S., Canada and Mexico.” This agenda has been called NAFTA-Plus. Who will benefit from NAFTA-Plus? Expansionist government, transnational corporations (think Halliburton and Big Pharma), globocrats, and those in globalist-minded public-private partnerships. Soft fascism knows no borders.
The super-elite wants everything in place by 2010. The primary author of the CFR’s Building a North American Community, Robert Pastor (director of the Center for North American Studies at American University), has proposed a Permanent Tribunal on Trade and Investment to “permit the accumulation of precedent and lay the groundwork for North American business law” and a North American Parliamentary Group to ensure that Congress cannot impede progress towards a North American Union. As noted by Corsi in the second of the articles linked above, Pastor has floated the idea of a North American currency—the amero, intended to replace the dollar and the peso.
The EU was sold to the French, Dutch, etc., as a “free trade zone,” and a lot of economists—fixated on that magic phrase free trade—fell for it hook, line and sinker. That’s the Real Matrix—where this is somehow about “free markets” (for cheap labor, cheap foreign-made crud, etc.). Today, European economies are in near-depression conditions—from their addiction to socialism as much as from their attachment to the EU globocracy. The individual nations have lost their sovereignty. The EU’s open-borders philosophy has overwhelmed them with Muslim immigrants, many of them dangerously violent as this past year has shown. Native European birthrates are falling. U.S. economists (who are surprisingly naïve on all these issues) are falling for the same nonsense that has just about destroyed Europe. We still hear them singing NAFTA’s praises despite the exporting of our manufacturing base, the devastation of America’s middle class, and the income gap between rich and poor that has grown since 1994, the year NAFTA went into effect.
To sum everything up: NAFTA was not about free trade and it was not about prosperity for all. It was about the slow rise to total power of a transnational super-elite in international banking and other corporate centers, and the destruction of America’s financially independent middle class.
The same charge can be directed at all subsequent “trade” agreements and the globocracies and public-private partnerships that have grown up around them. Amnesty for illegals and the refusal by the Executive branch to secure our borders cannot be understood apart from this larger endeavor, the gradual creation of a North American Union modeled on the European Union. Both, finally, are stepping stones to the final goal: a fascist World State, to emerge as elements of these regional globocracies and the corporations growing up within them “partner” with one another.
For this to happen, the U.S. economy must be socially engineered downward to third world status. Mass immigration accomplishes this; so does corporate “downsizing” and the “outsourcing” of jobs to China and India (economies built up via WTO policy and meddlesome government interference that by itself drives a lot of business overseas). Economists who embrace Globalization (thinking they are defending the “free market”) are embracing the emergence of the fascist World State—also know as the New World Order—whether they know it or like it or not....
...All of us need to tell our so-called leaders loudly and clearly that we do not want a North American Union. We want to keep the United States of America, a sovereign Constitutional republic!
