Scores In Congress Protest North American Union Agenda

22 Congressmen write to President in opposition to SPP as secret Montabello confab begins
As a secretive "Security and Prosperity Partnership" (SPP) meeting between the Mexican, Canadian and U.S. heads of states begins this week in Quebec, 22 members of the House of Representatives have put their names to a letter to president Bush demanding their concerns be heeded and that the administration back off the stealth program.
"As you travel to Montebello, Canada later this month for a summit with your Canadian and Mexican counterparts, we want you to be aware of serious and growing concerns in the U.S. Congress about the so-called Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) you launched with these nations in 2005," the letter said.
Veteran reporter and SPP expert Jerome Corsi brought the letter to light in his hugely popular World Net Daily column
While the letter authors express their support for the president's "desire to promote good relations with our neighbors to the north and south," they are worried about the secretive manner in which SPP is being conducted and concerned it "may actually undermine our security and sovereignty."
"For instance," the letter said, "measures that would make it easier to move goods and people across borders could have the effect of further weakening this country's ability to secure its frontiers and prevent illegal immigration."
The letter also cited documents obtained by Judicial Watch in a Freedom of Information Act Request that suggest, "Such secretiveness seems not to be accidental."
The last paragraph of the letter called upon the president "not to pledge or agree to any further movement in connection with the SPP at the upcoming North American summit."
The Congressmen also point out that their concerns "will only be intensified if pursuit of the SPP continues out of public view and without congressional oversight or approval."
Last September Jerome Corsi received the first documents pertaining to a FOIA request asking for full disclosure of activities towards creating a Pan American Union .
The documents show that a wide range of US administrative law is being re-written in stealth under the Security and Prosperity Partnership program to "integrate" and "harmonize" with administrative law in Mexico and Canada, just as has become commonplace within the EU.
The documents contain references to upwards of 13 working groups within an entire organized infrastructure that has drawn from officials within most areas of administrative government including U.S. departments of State, Homeland Security, Commerce, Treasury, Agriculture, Transportation, Energy, Health and Human Services, and the office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
Corsi also reported that at a recent high-level confab in Banff, an assistant U.S. secretary of state, Thomas A. Shannon , chaired a panel that featured a presentation by Prof. Robert Pastor, author of a book promoting the development of a North American union as a regional government and the adoption of the Amero as a common monetary currency to replace the dollar and the peso.
Further documents (PDF link) from the Banf meeting which were obtained by Judicial Watch under the FOIA also referred to an "evolution by stealth" agenda for the SPP.
Jerome Corsi joined Alex Jones on his nationally syndicated KLBJ Sunday show yesterday, declaring the SPP a "bureaucratic coup d'etat" and describing it as "being foisted upon millions of Americans without their consent or knowledge".
Corsi, adamant that the SPP's greatest hurdle is public exposure, has traveled to Canada to document the meeting but like all other journalists he will not be granted any access to cover the internal discussions and presentations during the summit.
The US army (on Canadian soil) along with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) is to enforce a huge security perimeter around the meeting as well as cracking down on expected protests, having already shut down a public forum due to take place close to the event.

The highest elected officials within the US, Canadian and Mexican governments are meeting together with advisory bodies staffed by senior private sector representatives yet the public and the press are being forcibly denied any access to the event.
In addition, the corporate mainstream media continues to DENY THE VERY EXISTENCE of an SPP, ridiculing anyone who suggests the North American Union plan even exists.
The latest example came this weekend in the Houston Chronicle which, despite having access to the very documents hyperlinked and mentioned in this report and despite having detailed conversations with Alex Jones and Jerome Corsi, published an article full of snide jokes about black helicopters and the illuminati, concluding that the SPP is just a "conspiracy theory".
