Question can the U.S. Congress legislate without consulting with foreign powers?
No they can’t according to Mexican President Felipe Calderon. Calderon in his state of the union speech Sunday accused the United States of stepping up persecution and abuse of undocumented Mexican workers with a crackdown on illegal immigrants.
Calderon said, "I want to express again an energetic protest at the unilateral measures taken by the U.S. Congress and government which exacerbate the persecution and abusive treatment of undocumented Mexican workers,"
What?!? Protest the unilateral measures taken by the U.S. Congress and government? Protest to whom and on what grounds? It doesn’t make any sense! Unless the United States of America is no longer a sovereign nation.
Americans ought to be very concerned when a leader of a foreign country denounces America for doing what it’s always done for over two hundred years, that is, self govern!
What is the President of Mexico thinking? The U.S. Congress and the U.S. government must check with him and his government before laws are passed and or enforced in the United States that concern America’s interest?
According to Reuters News, Mexico was deeply disappointed at the U.S. Congress' failure to pass a comprehensive overhaul of immigration laws in June despite heavy lobbying by the Bush administration. It is also upset at the United States for building a security fence on parts of the border to keep illegal immigrants out.
"The Mexican government will continue to insist firmly ... on the need for an integral immigration reform and the categorical rejection of the building of a wall on our common border,"—Felipe Calderon, President of Mexico
Just what gives the President of Mexico the idea that he or any foreign government have any rights or demands of consequence on the U.S. government or the American people?
Do you know? In one word “NAFTA.” The North American Free Trade Agreement is the bases on which a foreign power can make demands on your government. How have we come to this? Just follow the timeline.
That and the North American Community Agreement (NACA) that was signed by President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin. So realize that it is Big Business that is Corporate influence over your elected officials that is the cause of it all so don’t just go blaming the President of Mexico he’s just demanding what was agreed to in the North American Community Agreement that was signed by him George Bush and Paul Martin.
Oh I realize that our Government’s official position is that the NACA was not signed but the only problem with that is I recall seeing the signed document on-line back in 2005 before it was erased from all sources. I also remember seeing an article at that same time touting the signing of the Agreement that too has been sanitized.
So either I’m crazy or the government is lying and if I’m crazy well I’m not the only one because former Canadian Minister Paul Martin (a participant in the NACA) recalls that he President Bush and President Fox signed an agreement. Martin posted it for the world to see on his website.
Thus, on March 23, President Bush, President Fox and I signed the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America that establishes the way forward on our continental agenda for security, prosperity and quality of life. It is a partnership that respects the past but is devoted to building for the future, to ensuring that we as North Americans are able to continue to thrive in a world in which China and India have emerged as economic giants.Your government has gone to a awful lot of trouble to denied that President Bush signed an agreement, why they’ve even published a rebuttal called SPP myths vs facts they claim:
Myth: The SPP was an agreement signed by Presidents Bush and his Mexican and Canadian counterparts in Waco, TX, on March 23, 2005.The only thing is they couldn’t get all of the evidence. Several sources reported the signing which was not disputed or denied by the Bush administration until the American people realized that their President had entered the United States of America into a tri-lateral agreement without the consent of the people and the people’s Congress.
Fact: The SPP is a dialogue to increase security and enhance prosperity among the three countries. The SPP is not an agreement nor is it a treaty. In fact, no agreement was ever signed.
It was only after that realization that the Oligarchy (see a list of who’s behind NACA) which comprises the planning of the North American Community began to cover its tracks. They knowing that their actions were unconstitutional and that the American people were becoming aware of the treachery that was being acted out at the highest levels of American government began attempting to change perception by lying about the facts.
The facts are elitist academics, government officials and heads of corporations are planning and enacting economic goals that will further exploit people and resources in Canada, Mexico and the United States in the name of prosperity and security.
Constitutions, laws and governments will be superseded by a governing body that will neither be elected nor answerable to anyone.
You say that it isn’t true? Then you explain how an agreement that was not signed by anyone can be the bases upon which three countries are beginning to merger their borders, their commerce and their peoples.
Finally, that is why the President of Mexico can call the United States into account; he has an agreement signed by our President. An Agreement that Mexican Nationals will be able to enter into the United States and work under the Security and Prosperity Plan and the North American Community Agreement that wasn’t signed (according to the White house) but is being honored and enforced by your government.
This recent rash of arrest are meant to placate you and me but as you can see these arrest are not what Mexico agreed to and that is why President Calderon feels that he can protest them so vehemently! He has a signed agreement even if the United States doesn’t!
