(5/12/09) Along with Robert Pastor, author of a pre-9/11 book entitled “Toward a North American Community," former Mexican President Vicente Fox will advance his “new vision for North American Prosperity” at a public Kennesaw State University event this afternoon.

For those unfamiliar with the ‘North Americanist,' open-borders agenda, here is a don’t miss event.

I expect that many Georgians who have not yet heard that they should adopt a “North American identity” will be quite surprised to hear the former president's proposals.

Whether or not the reader is planning to attend the public KSU seminar today (1 p.m. to 5 p.m.), a little background is in order.

In a 2000 interview on ABC's "This Week," then Mexican President-elect Vicente Fox hopefully predicted that by 2010 people would move freely across the border between Mexico and the United States.

Again in 2000 on U.S. Mexico relations, Fox forecast that "when we think of 2025, there is not going to be a border. There will be a free movement of people just like the free movement of goods."

His cure for illegal immigration from Mexico? Eliminate our immigration laws.

While his time frame may vary slightly in speech to speech, his stated goal never does: end that old-fashioned American sovereignty and eventually integrate the nations of the Americas’– “from Canada to Chile” - into one colossal market place. Defined, defended borders are selfish and Americans live far too well.

“Is the dream of prosperity just for Americans or can it be shared with the rest of us”? Fox asks while he has constantly pushed for the expansion of the 1994 NAFTA agreement to include…people.

“SuperNafta” is the future, according to the man who was president as millions of his countrymen fled the grueling poverty of Mexico for “El Norte”.

In his autobiographical 2007 book: “Revolution of Hope,” Fox boasts: "I proposed a 'NAFTA Plus' plan to President Bush and Canada's Prime Minister Jean Chretien to move us toward a single continental economic union, modeled on the European example." (Page 101)

It would be alarming enough if Mr. Fox were a singular voice in the privileged and oh-so enlightened “Post American” ruling class.

He isn’t.

A July 2, 2001 Wall Street Journal editorial by Robert Bartley staked out that newspapers position in the title: “Open Nafta Borders? Why Not?”. Then went on: “Reformist Mexican President Vicente 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…indeed, during the immigration debate of 1984 we suggested an ultimate goal to guide passing policies - a constitutional amendment: ‘There shall be open borders.’

Climbing on the open borders wagon on September 7, 2001, the Atlanta Journal Constitution chimed in to the public editorial support for open borders with an opinion piece of its own headlined “Our opinions: Bush, Fox should pursue union similar to Europe” in which the newspaper went on to accurately note that “Mexican President Vicente Fox envisions a North American economic alliance that will make the border between the United States and Mexico as unrestricted as the one between Tennessee and Georgia”.

Readers who may assume that the open borders agenda has faded since the beginning of the decade would be sadly wrong.

The concept of creating a colossal, continental Walmart using the scrap of the Founders sovereign nation as a foundation is alive and well.

Opining in an editorial on what should be done to deal with what he describes as “the global mess”, Washington Post op-ed columnist Jim Hoagland last year advised the then as yet un-elected President Obama on change: “Here's one example of new thinking he should pursue: The United States should apply to relations with hemispheric neighbors many of the lessons of the European Union and its half-century of economic and political integration. A functioning American Union that pools sovereignty is a goal worth introducing now” wrote Hoagland.

Remember that one: “pooling sovereignty.” It is likely to come up again.

We owe a debt of gratitude to Kennesaw State University for the opportunity to be exposed to Vicente Fox and his “vision” for the future of Franklin’s Republic.

We also owe it to ourselves to ask a great many questions of Mr. Fox. It doesn’t seem that the mainstream media will.

See you there.
