The key component in the globalist bid for world government has been its transcending nation states into regional governments, ending national sovereignty, then later, these into a world government. North America must one day be a single country commonly referred to as the North American Union, following the model used for the European Union. Americans must be made to accept open borders.
Three decades ago, I wrote a paper that outlined the process by which the European Union transcended first from the European Coal and Steel Community, to the European Economic Community, to the European Community, finally to the European Union. Never were the people told that the intended outcome -- unification -- was to slowly take away their sovereignty. The paper began with a call from General Dwight D. Eisenhower, a Council on Foreign Relations member, for "The United States of Europe" ("An Early Champion of Unity," U.S. News and World Report, Oct. 15, 1990, p. 65). I documented how the Marshall Plan money was handed out, not so much to prevent communism from making progress in Europe, as we had been told, but to consolidate Europe, first economically and then politically, into a single country.
I did not publish the paper; it seemed out of reach for most Americans at the time. Imagine telling people that a group of wealthy Wall Street elites, through the use of taxpayer money, largely financed the consolidation of Europe into a single country and planned the same for North America with the unification -- first economically, then politically -- of Canada, Mexico and the United States into a single country known as the North American Union, with a single currency called the "Amero" Dollar. Who would believe it until now?
I told my students 30 years ago that there would never be an effective deterrent to illegal immigration because the CFR -- from which all secretaries of state, U.N. ambassadors, Russian and Chinese ambassadors and a third of all presidential cabinets prior to 2016 were drawn -- is the nation's leading advocate for globalism. The CFR is clearly for open borders and transnational agreements. No major television, radio or national newspaper outlet yet identifies it by name; nevertheless, these mediums know it.
Extending amnesty in the Immigration Act of 1965 did not work because we did not seal the border. Instead, it encouraged more to come. When offered again by President Ronald Reagan in the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, with the promise that we would never need it again, I warned that, despite the promise to finally end illegal immigration, we would repeat this in the next generation. And we have. I make the same promise for 30 years from now. Those that have undue influence upon both the Democratic and Republican parties -- the globalist's CFR -- have no intention of actually sealing the border, thus its resisting President Trump's efforts to do so.
Centuries ago China built the Great Wall, to keep barbarians out, without bulldozers, giant trucks, cranes or any other heavy lifting and earth moving technologies that we have today. Globalists want regional government, and a wall inhibits this.
The truth is that the CFR wants a generation or two of illegal immigration to help Mexico gain some measure of economic parity with Canada and the United States before assimilation can be a reality. Illegals tend to send money home and often retire in Mexico. The CFR 2005 publication, "Building a North American Community," outlined "the groundwork for the free flow of people within North America." The CFR seeks "cross-border traffic, travel and trade within North America." The featured article in the January/February 2004 issue of Foreign Affairs, the Council's principal publication, has author Jerome Corsi identifying NAFTA, the North America Free Trade Agreement, as being "the first draft of an economic constitution for North America."
This best explains the semi-secret meeting of George W. Bush in the somewhat obscure location of Waco, Texas, on March 23, 2005, with Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin and Mexican President Vincente Fox to formulate the "Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America," popularly referred to as SPP. Two years later in Montebello, Quebec, Mexican President Felipe Calderon and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper again came together with U.S. President George W. Bush. In that meeting, Fox News reporter Bret Baier asked each, "Can you say today that this is not a prelude to a North American Union, similar to a European Union?" None denied it ("Permanent Amnesty, Temporary Border," The New American, April 22, 2013, p.15).
The very controversial Bush planned superhighway running through the mid-west, allowing unrestricted use by both neighbors, could not then get liftoff, but succeeding president, Barack Obama, did support open borders, most notably by executive order, essentially refusing to deport children of those illegally entering the U.S. and transnational agreements, notably the Trans-Pacific Partnership, both of which undermine national sovereignty and strengthen regional governance.
The CFR plan to make illegal immigration legal remains in place as a major component of its larger plan to consolidate the three countries of North America and perhaps Central America into The North American Union. A physical wall is the best evidence of our remaining a sovereign country. Sadly, the 2018 federal budget denied border wall funding. So far, globalists remain in place to prevent a "real" wall ever becoming a reality.
