While most Americans remain unaware, President Bush and top officials in his administration are implementing plans to cancel U.S. sovereignty and form a new "North American Community" that will merge Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.
It is called the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.
The arrangement calls initially for legalization for millions of Mexican illegal immigrants, practical destruction of any remaining border security, and the transfer of huge amounts of U.S. aid to bring Mexico's primitive economy more in line with its northern neighbors.
The SPP has been jointly agreed to by Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin, Mexican President Vicente Fox and President Bush.
In July, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Roger F. Noriega told a House subcommittee that the new partnership has already "over a hundred initiatives on which the three countries will collaborate."
The three-nation arrangement has been dubbed "NAFTA-plus" by some, and implementation of the yet-to-be approved Free Trade Area of the Americas by others.
Whatever it is called, it should be challenged immediately by a supine Congress that seems unable or unwilling to assert its constitutional powers to rein in an executive branch eagerly working to destroy our nation.
