A year before making his contribution to Building a North American Community, Robert Pastor authored an article for

Trade and investment have nearly tripled, and the United States, Mexico, and Canada have experiencedan unpr

than just a geographical expression....
NAFTA was the first draft of an economic constitution for North America.... Although NAFTA fueled the trainof continental integration, it did not provide conductors to guide it.
National pride is a difficult impediment to the elimination of state sovereignty so those who want to eliminate bordersto create a regional supra state must work incrementally
and subtly. The creation of the European Union cameabout over a period of several decades by establishing
That is what is going on here.History records the consolidation of Europe began in 1951 with the establishment of the European Coal and SteelCommunity (ECSC). It contained just six members. Through several stages, the ECSC evolved into the EuropeanCommunity (EC), and on February 7, 1992, members of the EC
, which now numbered 12 nations
gathered inthe Netherlands to sign the Maastricht Treaty. This created the European Union (EU) that led to the creation of asingle European currency, the Euro.The consolidation of Europe required elimination of the
The current immigration bill follows thefirst steps of the blueprint of the 1985, Schengen Agreement. The Schengen area now includes 26 European coun-tries, extending from Scandinavia to the Iberian Peninsula and from Iceland to Greece. A key provision of Schengenis eliminating internal border controls with the other Schengen members, while strengthening external border controlswith non-member states. This arrangement closely resembles the proposed Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (the SPP) created at the tri-party summit in Waco, Texas, on March 23, 2005 by Canadian Prime Min-ister Paul Martin, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and U.S. President George W. Bush.I
n August 2007, President Bush met with Canada‟s Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe
Calderón at a follow-up summit in Montebello, Quebec. Upon conclusion of this summit, Fox News reporter Bret
Baier asked all three heads of government, “Can you say today that this is not a prelude to a North American Union,similar to a European Union?”
President Bush scoffed at the idea.The establishment of an NAU will do in North America what the Amsterdam Treaty did in Europe when it made theSchengen agreement part of European Union law
it will transform de facto (in fact) open borders into de jure (inlaw) open borders. This immigration bill is an attempt by stealth to do just that.We must control illegal immigration and deny amnesty. We must defeat
new “free trade” pacts between the United
States and other nations. Repealing NAFTA is a must.The people of Florida did not elect you to sell this country to the highest bidder. Americans are not people of theworld. We are Americans who will fight to maintain our identity. We have a Declaration of Independence, Constitu-tion, and Bill of Rights to defend and we will defend it.We reject this immigration bill, the planned NAU, and your effort to betray and destroy our Declaration of Independ-ence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights over time by stealth. You have proven unworthy of our confidence and trust. Theconstitutional oath you took is obviously meaningless. Consider your candidacy four years hence toast. Floridians willnot accept your treachery.
