North American Union

Some believe that the North American Union is an evolving organization similar to the European Union that will combine Canada, Mexico, and the United States into a single political entity.

Phyllis Schlafly believes there are certain facts about the supposed North American Union that "cannot be disputed," and that when you "connect the dots," people will get the big picture.

She said some of the key dates in this process were:

· April 2001. President Bush endorses the "Declaration of Quebec City," featuring a commitment to "hemispheric integration."

· March, 2005. Bush and the leaders of Canada and Mexico announce the Security and Prosperity Partnership.

· May 2005. The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) issues its report endorsing creation by 2010 of a North American economic and security "community" with a common security "perimeter," open borders to facilitate the movement of trade, capital and people, and a North American "tribunal" to resolve trade disputes.

· June 2005. Former Carter Administration official Robert Pastor presents the plan to a sympathetic session of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, then-headed by Senator Richard Lugar.

· March 2006. Bush and the leaders of Mexico and Canada hold another meeting, calling it the · "first anniversary" of the SPP.

· May 2006. Bush gives speech calling for "comprehensive immigration reform."

· 2007. The Senate immigration bill is introduced, with a provision calling for the acceleration of the SPP.
