[quote=“cake”]Bush supports open borders. His recent talk was a load of bollocks.

The blueprint President Bush is following was laid out in a 2005 report entitled “Building a North American Community” published by the left-of-center Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The CFR report connects the dots between the Bush administration’s actual policy on illegal immigration and the drive to create the North American Union
What is the plan? Simple, erase the borders.[/url]

Quietly but systematically, the Bush Administration is advancing the plan to build a huge NAFTA Super Highway, four football-fields-wide, through the heart of the U.S. along Interstate 35, from the Mexican border at Laredo, Tex., to the Canadian border north of Duluth, Minn.
Once complete, the new road will allow containers from the Far East to enter the United States through the Mexican port of Lazaro Cardenas, bypassing the Longshoreman’s Union in the process. The Mexican trucks, without the involvement of the Teamsters Union, will drive on what will be the nation’s most modern highway straight into the heart of America. The Mexican trucks will cross border in FAST lanes, checked only electronically by the new “SENTRI” system. The first customs stop will be a Mexican customs office in Kansas City, their new Smart Port complex, a facility being built for Mexico at a cost of $3 million to the U.S. taxpayers in Kansas City.[/url][/quote]
While I like the idea of organized labor, and the power that gives to the worker, how well do the unions serve their members these days? Do they needlessly drive up the costs of doing business? Are they reckless in their demands? Just throwing those questions out there. In grad school, remember looking at articles about nurses unionizing. Sorry for the vagueness it was a while back, but the concensus was that you wanted to avoid bringing in a union if you could, and save it as a last resort for a hospital administration that was unwilling to listen to nursing concerns, and whose operation of hospitals put patients and nurses’ licenses at risk. I don’t pretend to understand unions, I am just throwing a few questions out there. Seems like you’re article expresses dismay at how the super highway would undermine the unions. I don’t know if this is such a bad thing?
