A lot of people are wondering why we're dragging our feet about this immigration issue. There are also a lot of speculations on why - slow bureaucracy, democrats & republicans disagreeing, November elections, whatever. Sure we can speculate all day about what will happen and when the policy does finally materialize, it'll be some watered down and forgiving legislation.
Undoubtedly it will not appease the actual majority of constituents but hey, nothing will really happen even if we did complain. Well, I'd like to speculate on my take of this issue. I believe there is an underlying premise here - disintegrating global borders. Call me conspiratorial, call me nuts, but just don't call me a neocon.
The neoconservative agenda is at work here and we're blind to it. I really believe that it is a concerted effort and slowly but surely, the process is in motion. For instance, the government is in the works of launching a "North American Partnership" between the US, Mexico, and Canada. Something that sounds nice and sweet on the inside:
The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) was launched in March of 2005 as a trilateral effort to increase security and enhance prosperity among the United States, Canada and Mexico through greater cooperation and information sharing.
This trilateral initiative is premised on our security and our economic prosperity being mutually reinforcing. The SPP recognizes that our three great nations are bound by a shared belief in freedom, economic opportunity, and strong democratic institutions.
The SPP provides the framework to ensure that North America is the safest and best place to live and do business. It includes ambitious security and prosperity programs to keep our borders closed to terrorism yet open to trade.
But in actuality, this is the agenda (taken from a post on Free Republic which you can read in its entirety here):
Quietly but systematically, the Bush Administration is advancing the plan to build a huge NAFTA Super Highway, four football-fields-wide, through the heart of the U.S. along Interstate 35, from the Mexican border at Laredo, Tex., to the Canadian border north of Duluth, Minn.
Once complete, the new road will allow containers from the Far East to enter the United States through the Mexican port of Lazaro Cardenas, bypassing the Longshoreman's Union in the process. The Mexican trucks, without the involvement of the Teamsters Union, will drive on what will be the nation's most modern highway straight into the heart of America. The Mexican trucks will cross border in FAST lanes, checked only electronically by the new "SENTRI" system. The first customs stop will be a Mexican customs office in Kansas City, their new Smart Port complex, a facility being built for Mexico at a cost of $3 million to the U.S. taxpayers in Kansas City.
As incredible as this plan may seem to some readers, the first Trans-Texas Corridor segment of the NAFTA Super Highway is ready to begin construction next year. Various U.S. government agencies, dozens of state agencies, and scores of private NGOs (non-governmental organizations) have been working behind the scenes to create the NAFTA Super Highway, despite the lack of comment on the plan by President Bush. The American public is largely asleep to this key piece of the coming "North American Union" that government planners in the new trilateral region of United States, Canada and Mexico are about to drive into reality.
This is serious stuff here. There is an agenda at hand that has been going on for years. I encourage everyone to read up on it. I know I'm going to catch some heat for this post from some of my readers but so be it. I think the government is being commandeered and no one's even noticing.
