In response to Brexit, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto is calling for a EU-style “North American Union.”
Los objetivos son claros: renovar la relación bilateral con Canadá y avanzar en la integración económica de Norteamérica.

Nieto is attending a North American leaders summit in Ottawa on Wednesday to push the years-long, globalist proposal that would combine the U.S., Mexico and Canada into a regional entity at the expense of U.S. national sovereignty, which starts with joint energy agreements.
“The purpose of this visit is to renew our bilateral relationship, to give it new life, to find ways to advance the prosperity and competitiveness of North America,” Nieto said, with emphasis added on North America.
He’s not the first Mexican president to push the NAU; Vicente Fox also pushed the globalist plan, but he was so vocal about it, the Bush administration finally told him to keep quiet to avoid negative press.
“I proposed a ‘NAFTA Plus’ plan to President Bush and Canada’s Prime Minister Jean Chrétien to move us toward a single continental economic union, modeled on the European example,” he wrote in his autobiography Revolution of Hope. “…At summits I took every opportunity to advocate clearly for free-market policies; showing what sound economics could do to fund social justice; arguing for globalism, NAFTA and the Free Trade Area of the Americas.”
And during Fox’s presidency, in 2005, the globalist Council on Foreign Relations met with the Mexican government to discuss the implementation of the NAU.
“We are asking the leaders of the United States, Mexico, and Canada to be bold and adopt a vision of the future that is bigger than, and beyond, the immediate problems of the present,” CFR member and former Canadian Deputy Prime Minister John P. Manley wrote. “They could be the architects of a new community of North America, not mere custodians of the status quo.”
However, the NAU proposal would “increased labor mobility” between the U.S. and Mexico, which would effectively grant amnesty to illegal immigrants, and a “North American regulatory plan” with a “unified approach” to all three countries, which would effectively end U.S. national sovereignty.
Additionally, the NAU would strengthen controversial trade deals such as NAFTA which has only exacerbated illegal immigration by fueling mass unemployment in Mexico.
“There are no jobs [in Mexico] and NAFTA forced the price of corn so low that it’s not economically possible to plant a crop anymore,” Rufino Domínguez, the former coordinator of the Binational Front of Indigenous Organizations, revealed. “We come to the U.S. to work because we can’t get a price for our product at home. There’s no alternative.”
Sin maiz, no hay pais: without corn, there is no country, as the Mexican saying goes.
NAFTA disrupted Mexico’s corn production so badly that 75,000 Iowa farmers were able to grow twice as much corn as 3,000,000 Mexican producers – and at half the cost because the U.S. maintained its corn subsidies under NAFTA.
That resulted in the mass migration of Mexican farm workers flowing into America.
“The big wave in illegal immigration from Mexico began in the 1980s, but it picked up strongly after NAFTA – that wasn’t unexpected,” NPR’s Tim Robbins reported, a rare admission from an establishment outlet.
Donald Trump has spoken out against NAFTA and EU-style bureaucracies, which explains why Nieto and other globalist Mexican officials have spoken out against the GOP nominee.
