"Bush Administration Quietly Plans NAFTA Super Highway


I frankly don't believe that this illegals invasion we're experiencing would be any different if Democrats were in power because Democrats have voted overwhelmingly in favor of the Senate immigration bill TO DO NOTHING. 

In fact as I've posted earlier Democrats are telling illegals they don't have to have papers to vote.

It's going to be real conservatives who manage to pull us out of the frying pan this time because they're the ones who vote to close the border, deny benefits to illegals and enforce current immigration laws on the books. 

 "Bush Administration Quietly Plans NAFTA Super Highway

"Quietly but systematically, the Bush Administration is advancing the plan to build a huge NAFTA Super Highway, four football-fields-wide, through the heart of the U.S. along Interstate 35, from the Mexican border at Laredo, Tex., to the Canadian border north of Duluth, Minn.


Once complete, the new road will allow containers from the Far East to enter the United States through the Mexican port of Lazaro Cardenas, bypassing the Longshoreman's Union in the process. The Mexican trucks, without the involvement of the Teamsters Union, will drive on what will be the nation's most modern highway straight into the heart of America. The Mexican trucks will cross border in FAST lanes, checked only electronically by the new "SENTRI" system. The first customs stop will be a Mexican customs office in Kansas City, their new Smart Port complex, a facility being built for Mexico at a cost of $3 million to the U.S. taxpayers in Kansas City.

As incredible as this plan may seem to some readers, the first Trans-Texas Corridor segment of the NAFTA Super Highway is ready to begin construction next year. Various U.S. government agencies, dozens of state agencies, and scores of private NGOs (non-governmental organizations) have been working behind the scenes to create the NAFTA Super Highway, despite the lack of comment on the plan by President Bush. The American public is largely asleep to this key piece of the coming "North American Union" that government planners in the new trilateral region of United States, Canada and Mexico are about to drive into reality.

Just examine the following websites to get a feel for the magnitude of NAFTA Super Highway planning that has been going on without any new congressional legislation directly authorizing the construction of the planned international corridor through the center of the country.

NASCO, the North America SuperCorridor Coalition Inc., is a "non-profit organization dedicated to developing the world's first international, integrated and secure, multi-modal transportation system along the International Mid-Continent Trade and Transportation Corridor to improve both the trade competitiveness and quality of life in North America." Where does that sentence say anything about the USA? Still, NASCO has received $2.5 million in earmarks from the U.S. Department of Transportation to plan the NAFTA Super Highway as a 10-lane limited-access road (five lanes in each direction) plus passenger and freight rail lines running alongside pipelines laid for oil and natural gas. One glance at the map of the NAFTA Super Highway on the front page of the NASCO website will make clear that the design is to connect Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. into one transportation system.

Kansas City SmartPort Inc. is an "investor based organization supported by the public and private sector" to create the key hub on the NAFTA Super Highway. At the Kansas City SmartPort, the containers from the Far East can be transferred to trucks going east and west, dramatically reducing the ground transportation time dropping the containers off in Los Angeles or Long Beach involves for most of the country. A brochure on the SmartPort website describes the plan in glowing terms: "For those who live in Kansas City, the idea of receiving containers nonstop from the Far East by way of Mexico may sound unlikely, but later this month that seemingly far-fetched notion will become a reality."

The U.S. government has housed within the Department of Commerce (DOC) an "SPP office" that is dedicated to organizing the many working groups laboring within the executive branches of the U.S., Mexico and Canada to create the regulatory reality for the Security and Prosperity Partnership. The SPP agreement was signed by Bush, President Vicente Fox, and then-Prime Minister Paul Martin in Waco, Tex., on March 23, 2005. According to the DOC website, a U.S.-Mexico Joint Working Committee on Transportation Planning has finalized a plan such that "(m)ethods for detecting bottlenecks on the U.S.-Mexico border will be developed and low cost/high impact projects identified in bottleneck studies will be constructed or implemented." The report notes that new SENTRI travel lanes on the Mexican border will be constructed this year. The border at Laredo should be reduced to an electronic speed bump for the Mexican trucks containing goods from the Far East to enter the U.S. on their way to the Kansas City SmartPort.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is overseeing the Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC) as the first leg of the NAFTA Super Highway. A 4,000-page environmental impact statement has already been completed and public hearings are scheduled for five weeks, beginning next month, in July 2006. The billions involved will be provided by a foreign company, Cintra Concessions de Infraestructuras de Transporte, S.A. of Spain. As a consequence, the TTC will be privately operated, leased to the Cintra consortium to be operated as a toll-road.
The details of the NAFTA Super Highway are hidden in plan view. Still, Bush has not given speeches to bring the NAFTA Super Highway plans to the full attention of the American public. Missing in the move toward creating a North American Union is the robust public debate that preceded the decision to form the European Union. All this may be for calculated political reasons on the part of the Bush Administration.

A good reason Bush does not want to secure the border with Mexico may be that the administration is trying to create express lanes for Mexican trucks to bring containers with cheap Far East goods into the heart of the U.S., all without the involvement of any U.S. union workers on the docks or in the trucks.

This article sounds like the biggest complaint is that two massive unions will be bypassed. Do you think that's a bad thing? When I read about the "superhighway", it sounds like it would make sense. It does not just mean bringing goods IN to the country cheaper, it means USA companies can ship products to OTHER countries much cheaper. Sounds good to me.

My opinion is that unions have long outlived their usefulness, however, they have gravitated into our school system, taken deep roots and will no doubt continue with dumbing down, "re-educating" American children at warp-speed. Vouchers would answer that problem.

Was never a huge fan of NAFTA because I felt the US would get the shaft somewhere in that agreement. So far it has with amnesty grants, social services costs, WIC, real estate taxes increased to support burgeoning school systems, increased incarceration costs, you name it.

Also feel this phase of NAFTA is the underlying reason for President Bush's lackadaisical attitude about immigration, crossing the line into RINO territory.

On this particular issue I side with more staunchly conservatives to secure the borders, remove benefits including education, apply for work visas legally, get in line with those who have already applied for citizenship etc., etc., etc.

I believe that Dems are supporting open borders immigration "reform" to gain the illegal vote because of their long history of voter fraud, echoed most recently by Democrat Francine Busby. Audio link here http://powerlineblog.com/archives/014274.php

I am also bothered by the overseeing government which will be formed through the "North American Union" whose authority the US government will be answerable to. One more cog turn toward placing the US under ultimate control by the hate-the-US while writhing in corruption of its own making United Nations.

Were this only to break the backs of the US unions I wouldn't care one bit, but it has greater and more far reaching implications which are just now beginning to be revealed. Too much socialist social engineering which doesn't take anything into consideration about the humans involved in its implementation.... namely US citizens who are picking up the tab as usual.

Bottom line I believe this treaty gives our government a reason to NOT come up with a solution to the illegals invasion, although roughly 80% of US citizens are demanding closing the borders and to enforce laws already on the books if they can't come up with something that has more teeth.
