Mexico’s President Calling for American Superstate with Open Borders

The proposed continental superstate includes combining North American and South American employees.

QUICK FACTS:
  • Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador called for a continental superstate during a recent press confrence in Mexico at the presidential palace, according to Breitbart News.
  • Obrador’s plan would combine North American employers and South American employees in a move that would likely sideline millions of American middle-class workers.
  • The Mexican President appeared to be calling for an entirely open-border policy between American countries.
  • The leader said that the unification of the nations would only be possible if the United States and other nations resolve disagreements.
  • “There has to be a change in the policy, an end to confrontation, an end to hate, an end to threats, the blockades, the foreign interference, and choose brotherhood, good neighbor policies,” Obrador said.
OBRADOR’S STATEMENT IN PART:
  • “I will go in July to visit [President Joe Biden] at the White House and I want to discuss with him the issue of the integration of all America,” President Obrador said at a press conference in Mexico’s presidential palace. He continued: “My position is that, just as how the European community was created … we have to do that in America.”
  • “I have a very good relationship with President Biden, he is a good man. In this case, I feel that there are a lot of pressures on the part of the Republicans and above all from some leaders of the Republican Party and also in the Democrat Party that has to do with the Cuban community in Florida and in the United States.”
  • “Of course, the most inhuman, anti-immigrant, authoritarian [politicians] are the Republicans. But there are also those in the Democratic Party too … [For example, Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J.] he is from the Cuban community — and this one has enormous influence.”
  • “But if we stay [divided] like this, depending on the decision of one gentleman, of the influence of one gentleman, of the rancors of one gentleman, and we forget our peoples, well then, we are acting in a sectarian way, trafficking the pain of the peoples. Taking advantage of, thriving, taking advantage of politically and economically.”
BACKGROUND:
  • The Mexican leader’s proposal for a continent-wide superstate was pushed by former President George W. Bush in 2001 with then Mexican president Vicente Fox.
  • The program, called “Any Willing Worker,” would have allowed U.S. employers to easily import low-wage employees from central and south America, but the push was scrapped after the 9/11 attack.
