Trouble With Trade, by PAUL KRUGMAN, New York Times, December 28, 2007
...itís hard to avoid the conclusion that growing U.S. trade with third world countries reduces the real wages of many and perhaps most workers in this country. And that reality makes the politics of trade very difficult.

North American Union Threat, by Geoff Metcalf, NewsWithViews.com, August 27, 2007
"The North American Union is a 'Borg'-like collective plan to create a regional government. It is the antithesis of our Constitution and a direct threat to national security and sovereignty.
The Declaration of Independence says, '...a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.'
The same holds true if or when an independent country chooses to consolidate with other sovereign countries. So what happened to the 'decent respect to the opinions of mankind'?"
Best to be wary of SPP partnership, by Editorial staff, Marietta Daily Journal, August 21, 2007
"We suspect most people in our country and in our neighbors Canada and Mexico favor strong ties between the three with reciprocal trade agreements, improved guest-worker programs and well-coordinated security arrangements. But we strongly doubt that many people in any of the three would favor anything that might amount in all but name to a merger of the three into one huge entity."
Murdoch Should Clean House at the Journal - response to Wall Street Journal "Open Nafta Borders?" article, by Cliff Kincaid, Accuracy in Media, August 1, 2007
"It's true that the Journal has been known for having a conservative editorial page but its radical commitment to open borders and free trade at any cost has gone beyond what most people would regard as mainstream conservatism.
Robert L. Bartley, the late editor of the Wall Street Journal (who ran the editorial pages, not the news pages) wrote [the above].
Fox turned out to be a failed reformer but his 'vision' is developing today in the form of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) involving the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. However, the plan, which involves 'harmonizing' the laws and regulations of the three countries, has never been approved by - or submitted to - Congress.
The Wall Street Journal could demonstrate prize-winning journalism by subjecting this scheme to the serious scrutiny it deserves. No other major media organization or personality, except for CNN's Lou Dobbs, has done so. The story is not so much anti-business as it is pro-sovereignty. It is a legitimate story, no matter how you look at it."

NAFTA Superhighway has Giuliani as key player, by Diane M. Grassi, Renew America.us, May 4, 2007
Both the proposed NAU and NAFTA Superhighway are offshoots of the North American Free Trade Agreement, signed in 1992 by then President Bill Clinton. At the time it was sold to the American people and the Mexican government as a win-win for both peoples and would re-balance the flow of trade back to Mexico in order for Mexican workers to earn a living wage. But that never transpired and instead backfired, resulting in the onslaught of nearly 20 million illegal aliens since, illegally crossing the U.S. southern border, supposedly looking for decent paying jobs.

Open borders are deadly threat to U.S., by James P. Pinkerton, Deseret News, Salt Lake City, April 2, 2006
At the heart of the immigration debate is the basic issue of the social contract between the governed and the government. The government has broken its side of the contract; now the governed will have to step up and force a solution.

Connect the dots on the true goal of illegal immigration, by D.A. King, MichNews.com, September 6, 2005
"'By nominating me, my party has made a choice to welcome the new America.' George W. Bush...Presidential candidate, August 2000, in a speech on Latin America in Miami Florida. Where ever I go, people who are paying even a little attention to the invasion and colonization of our nation ask me the same question: 'Why is our government allowing this to go on'?
I normally give the short answer...'follow the money' I say - and hope that it is enough for most to connect at least some of the dots.
Not everyone pays enough attention to do so.
The issue of illegal immigration is closely related to the erosion of United States sovereignty..."

Open Nafta Borders? Why Not? Immigration is what made this country great, by Robert L. Bartley, Wall Street Journal, July 2, 2001
"Reformist Mexican President Vincente Fox raises eyebrows with his suggestion that over a decade or two Nafta should evolve into something like the European Union, with open borders for not only goods and investment but also people. He can rest assured that there is one voice north of the Rio Grande that supports his vision. To wit, this newspaper."
