It's the North American Union, stupid... Part 12

Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- February 27
Watch Video: Amnesty
Dan Stein, FAIR: Senator Kennedy, supposedly a champion of the working person in this country, is in lead with the greatest exploiters of cheap labor, groups working with the Chamber of Commerce and the immigration bar, unscrupulous lawyers who simply use immigration to make money. And somehow, he's working with them, and they're writing the bill. Wian: According to "The Washington Times," President Bush has pledged support for Senator Kennedy's so-called comprehensive immigration reform plan. He met with his counterpart from El Salvador, who's clearly hoping for an amnesty bill.

Mexican officials are in Washington tonight to lobby for the Security and Prosperity Partnership, what some call the Northern American Union. This plan is backed by government and corporate elites, with no input from Congress or voters. Labor unions say they, too, have been left in the dark, even though the partnership, much like the North American Free Trade Agreement, will have a direct impact on American jobs and wages. Supporters of the plan want to do away with national regulations, a move that could threaten U.S. sovereignty. Jack Martin of the Federation for American Immigration Reform said: "Academics who have studied this indicate that it isn't a win-win situation for everybody. And, in fact, the United States stands to lose in many ways." Critics say the Security and Prosperity Partnership may be a bonanza for big business, but it will leave the American worker less secure and less prosperous.
[Our take: The government of Mexico is lobbying for a North American Union and illegal alien advocates are pressing for open borders and amnesty. Against this backdrop big corporations continue to send jobs overseas, yet demand more foreign workers be allowed to enter the U.S. at lower wages. Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill millionaires like Senator Edward Kennedy -- who hides his oil wealth from taxes, yes he owns an oil company -- is expending great energy to reshape our country in the image of a thoroughly corrupt Mexico. Too many Americans are sitting on the sidelines in this crisis. If Bush and Kennedy get their way, there is no turning back. Most Americans will be left scratching their heads, wondering how millionaire politicians, big corporations and illegal aliens colluded in taking away our government. When that day comes, we will have lost the power to do anything about it.]

The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin hearings on so-called comprehensive immigration reform, a plan critics say amounts to amnesty for illegal aliens. All week, demonstrators are gathering outside San Francisco's immigration office, demanding unconditional amnesty for the estimated 12 to 20 million illegal aliens in the United States. And they want immigration authorities to stop conducting workplace raids targeting fugitive illegal aliens. A call for the effective end of immigration law enforcement is among the more extreme measures being proposed by amnesty advocates now lobbying Congress. According to Dan Stein of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, "Senator Kennedy, supposedly a champion of the working person in this country, is in league with the greatest exploiters of cheap labor, groups working with the Chamber of Commerce and the immigration bar, unscrupulous lawyers who simply use immigration to make money. And somehow, he's working with them, and they're writing the bill."

The Washington Times: Senate Illegals Bill Near Complete
Senators and lobbyists are putting the final touches on a comprehensive immigration-reform bill that includes an easier citizenship path for illegal aliens and weaker enforcement provisions than were in the highly criticized legislation that the Senate approved last year. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat who ardently supports citizenship rights for illegals, will introduce the bill as early as next week, according to Senate sources knowledgeable about the negotiations. If the Senate Judiciary Committee can make quick work of the bill, it could be ready for floor action in April. Mr. Kennedy drafted this year's bill with help from Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, and outside lobbyists. Mr. McCain and the outside groups share Mr. Kennedy's support for increased immigration and leniency for illegals already in the country. Among the most active participants have been the Essential Worker Immigration Coalition (EWIC) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Both groups support giving current illegals a path to citizenship and increasing the flow of foreign workers into the country.
