Opposing the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, a NAFTA Superhighway System, and a North American Union with Mexico and Canada

(Adopted by unanimous vote of the National Committee on August 6, 2007)

Whereas the United States Departments of State, Commerce, and Homeland Security participated in the formation of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) on March 23, 2005, representing a tri-lateral agreement between the United States, Canada, and Mexico, designed, among other things, to facilitate common regulatory schemes between these countries; and

Whereas the SPP aims to make regulatory changes among the three countries in the areas of transportation, security, and border security by means of a process which SPP documents describe as "permanent"; and

Whereas the SPP, by advancing "permanent" regulations in these matters properly under the jurisdiction of Congress, opposes congressional authority to review existing relationships with other nations, and is therefore unconstitutional; and

Whereas the proposed "permanent" regulatory changes proposed by the SPP violate and threaten United States sovereignty; and

Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System from the west coast of Mexico through the United States and into Canada has been suggested as part of a North American Union to facilitate trade between the SPP countries; and

Whereas the State of Texas has already begun planning and building of the Trans-Texas Corridor, a major multi-modal transportation project beginning at the United States-Mexico border, which would serve as an initial section of a NAFTA Superhighway System; and

Whereas future unrestricted foreign trucking into the United States could pose a safety hazard due to inadequate maintenance and inspection; could act collaterally as a conduit for the entry into the United States of illegal drugs, illegal human smuggling, illegal weapons, and terrorist activities; and will destroy many American jobs in the trucking and port facility industries; and

Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System would likely include funds from foreign consortiums and be controlled by foreign management, which threatens the sovereignty of the United States;

Now, therefore, be it resolved by the America First National Committee, that:

(1) the United States should prohibit the Security and Prosperity Partnership from implementing further regulations that would create a North American Union with Mexico and Canada; and

(2) U.S. participation in the Security and Prosperity Partnership should be immediately terminated; and

(3) the United States should not engage in the construction of a NAFTA Superhighway System; and

(4) the President and Congress of the United States should perform their constitutional duties by strongly opposing these acts or any other proposals that threaten the sovereignty of the United States.
