Should We Put Mexico on Welfare?

A Freedom of Information Act request has resulted in the revelation that at a session on "Border Infrastructure and Continental Prosperity" at the North American Forum in Banff, Canada last September, discussions dwelled on the question of whether to be secretive or forthcoming with the public about attempts to integrate the USA, Canada, and Mexico into a North American version of the European Union.

If they're wise, they'll stick with the stealth route. Not too many Americans are likely to endorse their bureaucratic dreams, especially after exposure to the views of Robert Pastor. Pastor, an American University professor who was prominent at the Banff conference, says that narrowing the income gap between the productive USA and the not-so-productive Mexico "may be the single most important issue on the North American agenda." Apparently he wants to put an entire country on our welfare roll.

This plan does beat leaving the border open, which will eventually result in all the poor in Mexico ending up on our welfare roll anyway, without improving our access to Mexican oil.

On a tip from Wiggins.
