Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 15, 2006
Revelations in an upcoming book by the founder of the Minuteman Project and the co-author of “Unfit for Command” may result in a Congressional investigation of the White House, this according to the authors. At issue are the Bush Administration's secretive efforts to establish a North American regulatory agency with Mexico and Canada.
“Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders” (World Ahead Publishing; hardcover: $25.95; ISBN 0977898415) is authored by Jim Gilchrist and Jerome R. Corsi and scheduled for nationwide release on July 25. But shocking information contained in the book is already causing concern among lawmakers who are worried that the Bush Administration is ceding America's border sovereignty to a North American trans-national bureaucracy without their approval.
While researching their highly anticipated book on illegal immigration, the authors uncovered evidence suggesting that the Bush Administration established an office in the Department of Commerce to collaborate on regulation with the Mexican and Canadian governments and without oversight from Congress. Corsi is scheduled to join Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) on the nationally syndicated G. Gordon Liddy Show on Thursday as he calls upon Congress to investigate this previously secret initiative.
The office in question is tasked with implementing the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), a tri-lateral accord signed last year by President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin. According to the State Department's website, the SPP is intended to “protect North America from external threats…implement a border-facilitation strategy…pursue regulatory cooperation…and (enhance) environmental stewardship.”
“The SPP was never authorized by Congress, and no congressional committee has oversight of the SPP working groups,” claims Corsi, whose 2004 book “Unfit for Command” helped defeat John Kerry’s presidential bid. “The Administration has also refused to disclose the results of those working groups. It seems like President Bush doesn't want Americans to know that a North American version of the European Union is being created right under their nose, and without congressional approval.”
“Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders” is a selection of the month for the American Compass Book Club, and an alternate selection for the Conservative Book Club, History Book Club, and Military Book Club. It will be available in bookstores nationwide in late July.
