‘Flow freely’ will erase face of U. S.
Those who study our national illegal immigration crisis watch with knowing sadness as millions of Americans outraged over our porous borders eventually get to the obvious question: Why has the president of the United States refused to secure American borders?
Perhaps it is part of a larger plan.
Without a vote in Congress, or consent of the American people, our intentionally unsecured borders and our government’s deliberate lack of enforcement of our immigration and employment laws could be an essential step to a much larger goal: a “North American Union.”
While virtually ignored in the mainstream media, the leaders of the nations of North America last year announced a plan to combine the infrastructure, security and ultimately the economies of the three nations. The linchpin of the “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America” is the “free flow” of goods, services … and people.
The un-stated NAFTA-World Trade Organization-based theory is simple: Borders are geopolitical abstractions — barriers to increased profit — and have become obsolete in the global economy. At present, labor is overpriced in the United States. The middle-class American Dream, while charming, is outdated.
If you like the idea of illegal, taxpayer-subsidized labor from Mexico, you will love the concept involved here: an unending flow of unskilled low-wage workers looking for a better life with no cumbersome immigration laws about which to be concerned.
Including the already signed 2004 “Totalization” agreement, yet to be considered by Congress — combining the Social Security systems of Mexico and the United States — the Bush administration seems to be following the recommendations of a little noted 2005 publication titled “Building a North American Community,” released by the Council on Foreign Relations, a multinational independent foreign-policy organization.
The CFR report further recommends creation of “permanent tribunals” that could overrule American courts on matters of “unfair trade practices” and “tri-national competition” disputes.
Few could doubt that once put into place, the laws and regulations creating the corporate friendly borderless continent would be enthusiastically enforced.
Supporters of the dissolution of the Founding Fathers sovereign republic have already played the “jingoist” card in an attempt to pre-marginalize those who would dare to object to a multilingual, continental Super State dedicated to low wages and increased markets in which “trade, capital and people flow freely.”
Americans with the temerity to speak up in objection to Mexican customs inspection offices in Kansas City, the “Amero” replacing the dollar and a North American Union by 2010 should prepare for a battery of invectives containing “phobes,” “ists” and “isims.”
The more politically correct may want to practice repeating, ” I pledge allegiance to the Continent and to the Commerce for which it stands.”
Suggestions for a possible new flag, anyone?

We are very relieved that many others are now recognizing the existence – and the danger to our nation and our way of life it represents – of the Security and Prosperity Partnership [SPP].
We recommend that you read and understand the Council on Foreign Relations report from last March.
The fact that President Bush is plotting to erase our borders is finally getting the attention that it warrants. Next, maybe even the mainstream media will acknowledge the true goal of our intentionally un-secured borders and un-enforced laws.
We point to D.A. King’s 2005 warnings on Bush’s on-going effort to create a borderless continent with the free flow of goods and people here in this blog as well as here, here and [ now updated with current articles] here.
As the CFR the U.S. Senate and the president have made clear, their intention is to eliminate illegal immigration by eliminating our borders.

We thank VDARE.com and Juan Mann for answers to frequently asked questions about “justice” and illegal aliens.
Thanks to the efforts of immigrationist advocacy groups, the immigrationist press, and immigrationist politicians, it’s difficult to get a straight answer on what the law is. We’ve seen Bush administration officials claim that Section 245(i) was not an amnesty for illegals. (It was.) Police officers claiming that “Illegal immigration is not a crime. It is. The English language is twisted in outrageous ways to serve the cause of immigration, as when President Bush called illegals “hardworking citizens who are willing to walk 400 miles of desert in blistering heat to find work.” They’re not citizens.

Apparently, every rainbow has a silver lining. The effects of Chip Rogers’ Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act [ SB 529]are starting to be seen more than a year before the law begins to go into effect!
Mortgage lenders who have been allowed to make loans to illegal aliens – encouraging an illegal to remain in the U.S is a federal crime– along with their equally guilty partners, real estate agents operating the same racket, are now complaining that illegal aliens don’t seem too excited about moving to, remaining in or buying a house in Georgia.
The news of Senator Rogers’ intended consequence has reached California and is reported by the Los Angeles Times. [Our pal Terry Anderson refers to that AJC of the left coast as “LATIMES“]
Georgia Law Chills Latino Home-Buying Market
By Jenny Jarvie, [LA] Times Staff Writer
June 19, 2006
ATLANTA — Two months ago, all Alina Arguello had to do to find Latino home buyers was put up a sign and answer her phone.
But ever since Georgia passed one of the most stringent and far-reaching immigration laws in the nation, the number of Latino buyers who call the Re/Max agent’s home office in suburban Atlanta has dwindled from about 10 to two a day.
“We’re seeing a drastic drop,” she said. “There’s just a tremendous amount of people who want homes, but are not calling.” Many real estate agents and mortgage providers who cater to Spanish-speaking immigrants across Georgia say that the flourishing Latino home buying market has faltered since April, when Gov. Sonny Perdue signed the Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act.
Almost immediately, Latino home buyers pulled out of contracts. Some who had already bought, put their homes on the market. And many prospective buyers stopped searching for homes.
Although Georgia’s new legislation does not prohibit illegal immigrants from owning property, many wonder whether they will want to live in Georgia when it begins to come into effect in July 2007.
The law will require companies with state contracts to verify employees’ immigration status, penalize employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants, curtail many government benefits to illegal immigrants and require that jailers check the immigration status of anyone who is charged with a felony or driving under the influence.
As is the habit of writers and papers with an agenda [the AJC pops into my head again] LATIMES describes the effect on “Latinos” instead of people who are in our country illegally [ a federal crime].
SB 529 is not aimed at Latinos or any other ethnic group. It is aimed at illegal employers and aliens.
The report does get around to mentioning the illegals though:
Diego Castaneda, a real estate agent and loan officer in Norcross, Ga., had two clients — illegal immigrants from Mexico — who were a week away from closing on homes in Atlanta’s northern suburbs when they pulled out of their contracts.
We like Senator Rogers’ quote from the “LATIMES” article:
State Sen. Chip Rogers, a Republican who represents some of Atlanta’s northern suburbs and who sponsored the legislation, said he was “very satisfied” that the law seemed to be prompting some illegal immigrants to consider leaving Georgia.
That illegals are hesitant to come or remain here, that employers are now worrying about legal status of new hires and that profiteering mortgage lenders are whining proves that enforcement, – even the promise of future enforcement – works.
Thank you Senator Rogers!

Employer sanctions for illegal workers scaled back
By Spencer S. Hsu and Kari Lydersen
WASHINGTON – The Bush administration, which is vowing to crack down on U.S. companies that hire illegal workers, virtually abandoned such employer sanctions before it began pushing to overhaul U.S. immigration laws last year, government statistics show.
Between 1999 and 2003, worksite enforcement operations were scaled back 95 percent by the Immigration and Naturalization Service, which subsequently was merged into the Homeland Security Department. The number of employers prosecuted for unlawfully employing immigrants dropped from 182 to four, and fines collected declined from $3.6 million to $212,000, according to federal statistics.
In 1999, the United States initiated fines against 417 companies. In 2004, it issued fine notices to three.
The government’s steady retreat from workplace enforcement in the 20 years since it became illegal to hire undocumented workers is the result of fierce political pressure from business lobbies, immigrant rights groups and members of Congress, according to law enforcement veterans. Punishing employers also was de-emphasized as the government recognized that it lacks the tools to do the job well, and as the Department of Homeland Security shifted resources to combat terrorism…

You can read Zamarripa’s analysis here. It is from his Website, GALEO, faithfully tended by Jerry Gonzales.
Click here then go to “photo gallery” to see Jerry in action. [English tab on right.]
We won’t post the entire analysis, but we take great pleasure in this part of it:
Valid Identification and Employment Authorization Documents
Effective January 1, 2008, Section 7 provides that an employer cannot take a state tax deduction for payments of $600 or more made to any person who does not have valid identification as identified in the Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Additionally, Matricula Consular Cards shall not constitute valid identification.

From the mouths of illegals: we are not going home and you can’t make us! [If you try…we will call you a racist.]
This from the Houston Chronicle:
Immigrants say temporary worker program won’t be temporary
SAN BENITO — Jose Luis Vazquez and Elia Garcia know what they’re talking about when they predict that new immigrants crossing the border under the U.S. Senate’s temporary guest worker program won’t go home.
They each came over illegally more than a decade ago. They have children, jobs and houses — a life that would be difficult to dismantle because of a date on the calendar.
While the immigration plan would allow Vazquez and Garcia to stay — after paying fines and back taxes, and learning English — newcomers would compete for one of 200,000 temporary guest worker visas that would be issued each year.
President Bush called for such a plan last month on the theory that these immigrants would earn enough money to help their families and then move home.
The guest worker idea has strong appeal among such industries as construction, where nearly a third of the work force are immigrants.
“It’s a win-win,” said Jerry Howard, chief executive of the National Association of Home Builders. “This guest worker program would allow immigrants to come in who are employed and skilled laborers and get them into the system while meeting demands for labor.”
But some immigration experts say temporary worker programs have never worked in free market societies, because as workers become used to higher wages and start to assimilate, they don’t want to go back. It’s even harder to return once children are born here, making them automatic Americans, and the Senate bill allows for spouses of workers also to obtain visas.
“I think the general conclusion of everybody who has studied guest or temporary worker programs is that they are never as advertised,” said Michael Teitelbaum, a demographer with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in New York. “They are never temporary programs, nor are the workers temporary.”
Fewer than half the “Bracero” workers brought in to work the farms in World War I, World War II, and the Korean War went home, said Vernon Briggs, a labor economist at Cornell University
The Bush amnesty that is not an amnesty isn’t a “guest worker plan” either…it is open borders. Open borders is no borders…no borders is no nation.

Now you can see which employers try to verify immigration status of their new hires by using the Basic Pilot Program made available by the federal government.
Now you can see how many do not.
Thanks to NumbersUSA for this information.
[Note, State Senator Chip Rogers obtained and used a list of Georgia based companies that take advantage of the free access to the Basic Pilot Program earlier this year during the process of getting THE GEORGIA SECURITY AND IMMIGRATION COMPLIANCE ACT [ SB 529] passed in the Georgia Capitol. Using Basic Pilot is a key part of his legislation.]
Here is the link to a list of companies that make it clear that they intend to try to obey existing law.
What a concept.
This from NumbersUSA:
BUSINESS OWNERS: If your company is not listed here, you will want to take steps to get on the list as soon as possible to avoid the public’s disapproval.
CONSUMERS: Supporting businesses that hire legal workers is one of the most effective things one can do to encourage these businesses to continue to be leaders in their communities and to persuade other businesses to begin using the Basic Pilot program.
When you patronize any business, make a point of telling the clerks, managers, waiters, hosts and other personnel that you either approve of their being part of the verification program or that you are disappointed that they aren’t – and perhaps that you are considering discontinuing your relationship with them if you don’t see their name show up on this list.
The more businesses that join this program, the more illegal aliens who will voluntarily go back to their home countries. More than 200,000 long-time settled illegal aliens in this country already leave the U.S. each year because the tiny bit of enforcement now in place makes their lives too uncomfortable. Imagine how many more will leave as fewer and fewer businesses are available to hire them.
NumbersUSA works hard to make a free fax service to Congress available to us, I hope that you will use it.

It is time to recognize that President Bush has no intention of securing American borders…and why.
Many of us who have been studying the issue for years have been aware of the real goal of Bush and his corporate elite freinds, now it is time that all Americans understand the Bush agenda .
North American Union to Replace USA?
HUMAN EVENTS ONLINE
by Jerome R. Corsi
Posted May 19, 2006
President Bush is pursuing a globalist agenda to create a North American Union, effectively erasing our borders with both Mexico and Canada. This was the hidden agenda behind the Bush administration’s true open borders policy.
Secretly, the Bush administration is pursuing a policy to expand NAFTA politically, setting the stage for a North American Union designed to encompass the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. What the Bush administration truly wants is the free, unimpeded movement of people across open borders with Mexico and Canada.
President Bush intends to abrogate U.S. sovereignty to the North American Union, a new economic and political entity which the President is quietly forming, much as the European Union has formed.
The blueprint President Bush is following was laid out in a 2005 report entitled “Building a North American Community” published by the left-of-center Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The CFR report connects the dots between the Bush administration’s actual policy on illegal immigration and the drive to create the North American Union:
At their meeting in Waco, Texas, at the end of March 2005, U.S. President George W. Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin committed their governments to a path of cooperation and joint action. We welcome this important development and offer this report to add urgency and specific recommendations to strengthen their efforts.
What is the plan? Simple, erase the borders. The plan is contained in a “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America” little noticed when President Bush and President Fox created it in March 2005:

How Much Is that Tomato in the Window?
Retail Produce Prices Without Illegal Farmworkers
The removal of illegal workers from the seasonal agricultural workforce would increase the summer-fall supermarket prices of fresh fruits and vegetables by about 6 percent in the short run and 3 percent in the intermediate term. During the winter-spring seasons, prices would rise more than 3 percent in the short term and less then 2 percent in the intermediate term. Imports would increase about 1 percent.
The never-ending propaganda that we will pay $10.00 for a head of lettuce if we secure our borders and enforce our laws is examined by the Center for Immigration Studies…have a look.
