The recent articles in the Canadian media concerning passport requirements for Americans and Canadians are all smoke and mirrors.
The premise for border security between the two countries just doesn’t hold up under scrutiny. Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff uses the government’s favourite weapon, promoting fear, to intimidate people on both sides of the border.
The truth is that the United States is not today and never has been interested in securing either the Mexican or Canadian border. With between 12 and 20 million illegal immigrants already in the United States, how secure have the borders been since 2001? How did all of these people get in after the devastation of 9/11?
These illegal immigrants didn’t use passports or other ‘secure’ identification, and I don’t believe for a minute that new legislation will change that situation. The American government basically turned a blind eye to illegal immigration while stating the exact opposite to the people.
In fact, the big immigration debate going on in the U.S. this month has the Bush administration wanting to grant amnesty to those millions of illegal immigrants already there! Forget about trying to secure the borders now; if there are small cells of terrorists who wish to be in the U.S. I suggest that they have already arrived and living across the country undocumented, receiving food stamps and free medical care. The American government is simply mad or believes that the population is totally ignorant if it believes we cannot see through this facade.
Meanwhile American workers have lost jobs and been displaced by these illegals to the tune of $133 billion. There are also about 300,000 women who are pregnant when they illegally enter the United States. Their children will automatically become citizens.
The truth of the matter is that the United States government does not want there to be a halt to illegal immigration. Its actions clearly show that. The main agenda here for the United States is to move towards a North American Union, and it is well on its way. The economies of the three countries will gradually be “harmonized.” Our standard of living will erode tremendously and we will forfeit our social services in Canada. The only winners will be the banks and the corporations.
In 2005, Canada signed the Security and Prosperity Partnership with Mexico and the United States. The goal of this partnership is to create one North American perimeter, one super-trading bloc with open borders, and so-called “harmonization” of trade, justice, policing, environment and over 300 regulations. Former deputy Prime Minister John P. Manley has been one of Canada’s main proponents for this secretive, and undemocratic initiative.
Just as with the formation of the European Union and the objections of the people in those countries, the North American Union is forging ahead, building new toll highways in the U.S. which by 2010 which will bring goods from overseas to Mexico, then to be loaded into trucks and transported north.
So secretive is the “SPP” planning for the North American Union that it is apparently hands-off for newspapers, and the politicians either no nothing about it or are told to be silent. Only Peter Julian of the NDP party has insisted on hearings in the House of Commons that took place in May.
Dr. Jerome Corsi, a well-known American journalist and writer, has just published a book this week entitled: “The Late Great USA- The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada.”
So I guess we’ll have to get our “news” from this book or others, and then report the news to the newspapers so they can warn Canadians that by 2010 we will be a country in name only.
Most of our sovereignty will disappear by then if the smoke is still in our eyes.
