WTF is happening here!? Why are we fighting amongst ourselves over the immigration issue, when we could all be working to push this bill through. Whatever your stance is on immigration, we could all agree that managed trade deals are bad. Getting out of NAFTA is a boon to everyone! Second to HR 1207 / S 604, I think this bill is the most important piece of legislation currently on the table.

This would allow the people of Mexico the ability to exert more control over their own economy. This is an extremely important point within the immigration debate, and it is something not even the Democrats are willing to admit because they are just as guilty of selling out the Mexican and American working class in favor of cheap labor as much as the neo-cons and Mexican elites are. Don't kid yourself when they speak of being sympathetic to the plight of immigrants when they are not working to end the subversive trade deals that are causing these people to get up and move in the first place!


I see Ron Paul has already signed on to this bill.

Call your congresscritters today and ask them to please co-sponsor this bill.

As a factory worker in Ohio I will tell you first hand that NAFTA has been a total disaster for American small and mid sizes industry.

Try getting this in the news :\.

Once again.

The news only reports two sides of the issue.

Both sides have been polarized.

Yet both sides support big government.

+1 to the OP.

Immigration debate is a distraction.

International trade agreements,inflation of currency, prohibition laws without weight of Constitutional amendments, entitlement settlements in exchange for voting blocs are the problem.

All caused by the federal government.

Don't let the media deceive you.
