Well, not quite.... But, some important people are pushing for it
And those folks are completely in sync with and echo President Barack Obama’s policies, rhetoric and ideology that "We are all Americans" — especially, when referring to all those other "North Americans" still outside our borders
Possibly, George Soros isn’t directly behind this — But Soros’ son, Jonathan, and a Soros-funded group, “The New America Foundation,” certainly are
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton isn’t very far away from these proposals and their authors, either
IT’S ALSO COMING FROM SOME OF HILLARY CLINTON’S POLICY WONKSDaniel Kurtz-Phelan, a fellow at the New America Foundation and a former adviser on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s policy planning staff, along with André Martinez, also an editor with New America and a professor at the Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University have said the following: “The United States, Canada and Mexico are bound by a shared economic, environmental, demographic and cultural destiny. How we move forward together is key to our success....” (See “Why we need a North American Passport” by Daniel Kurtz-Phelan & André Martinez, , 1/26/15, CNN/ Opinion [CNN.com[http://www.cnn.com/2015/01/26/opinion/martinez-kurtz-phelan-north-american-passport/]).
Also, the President of the New America Foundation is another former hand of Hillary Clinton’s, Anne-Marie Slaughter.
PASSPORTS ARE NECESSARY — BUT NOT U.S. PASSPORTSThe Phelan-Martinez article goes on to state that “In recognition of our shared destiny, the three countries should create a North American passport that would, over time, allow their citizens to travel, work, invest, learn and innovate anywhere in North America. Work, tourist and student visas are necessities in the modern world to regulate the flow of people between sovereign states....”
HUH ! What about U.S. passports ? Well, I guess they are just not modern enough for these
THESE FOLKS ALSO SAY REPUBLICANS HAVE CHANGED THEIR STANCE ON IMMIGRATIONAnother of the interesting points raised by Phelan and Martinez in their CNN opinion piece is that Republicans need to change their stance on immigration matters. Here’s exactly how they put it, “Republicans are recognizing that their prior stance on immigration needs to change if they want to win over voters in the next presidential election....” Please note the nuances: it’s not SOME Republicans; it’s not BEGINNING TO RECOGNIZE it’s not their CURRENT stance; and it’s not MIGHT or COULD or even WILL change — NO ! It’s a done deal. The Republicans went into the tank on the immigration fight
WHO OR WHAT IS THE NEW AMERICA FOUNDATION ?According to Jerome Corsi’s reporting, The New America Foundation gets millions of dollars in funding by a blue-chip list of leftist donors along with government funding in the form of a seven-figure grant from the U.S. State Department and a six-figure grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development.
Prominent among a list of nearly 150 different funding sources is Google Inc., reflecting the participation of Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, who is also on the New American Foundation’s Board of Trustees. Also on the Board is Jonathan Soros, CEO of JS Capital Management LLC, a private investment firm, Jonathan Soros is also credited on the New American Foundation website as holding several board positions affiliated with the George Soros Open Society Foundations.
The president and CEO of the New American Foundation is Anne-Marie Slaughter, who previously served as Director of Policy Planning at the U.S. State Department, where she worked for Hillary Clinton from January 2009 through February 2011.
