he Department of
Transportation, acting through a Security and Prosperity
Partnership "working group," is preparing in 2007 to issue
North American biometric border passes to Mexican, Canadian,
and U.S. "trusted travelers" according to documents released
to WND columnist and author Jerome R. Corsi under a Freedom
of Information Act request.
"The FOIA documents show
the organizational chart and the composition of a 'shadow
Department of Transportation' which includes formal
membership from Mexico and Canada's Departments of
Transportation," asserts Corsi.
"SPP has in effect created
a fully-functioning trilateral Department of Transportation
which will dictate policy to Mary Peters as soon as she is
confirmed to replace Norm Mineta as U.S. secretary of
WND reported yesterday, the government documents reveal
the Bush administration is running a "shadow government"
with Mexico and Canada in which the U.S. is crafting a broad
range of policy in conjunction with its neighbors to the
north and south.
The FOIA documents list the following

An SPP document entitled "Traveler
Security: Develop and Implement Consistent Outcomes with
Compatible Processes for Screening Prior to Departure from a
Foreign Port and at the First Port of Entry to North
America" says a "single, integrated, global enrollment
program for North American trusted travelers" will be
implemented "within 36 months." No date is indicated on the
"Evidently SPP has decided to erase our
internal borders with Mexico and Canada," Corsi told WND.
"We have no trilateral treaty voted by two-thirds of the
Senate that has authorized North American trusted traveler
biometric cards to be issued to the citizens of the U.S.,
Canada and Mexico. Yet this is exactly what the shadow
administrative branch created within the Bush administration
under the auspices of an SPP working group is doing."
The documents released to Corsi under the
FOIA request reveal a pattern of e-mails that are regularly
sent from within the Bush administration executive branch to
a wide range of U.S. administrative-branch personnel with
e-mail copies sent equally to administrative branch officers
in the governments of Mexico and Canada.
"This would be like President Bush
putting partitions in the Oval Office," Corsi argued to WND,
"so desks could be set up for Canada's Prime Minister Harper
and for Mexico's new President Calderon as soon as he takes
The SPP.gov website in the Department of
Commerce has added a new "Myth
vs. Facts" section which documents that the Security and
Prosperity Partnership of North America is neither a treaty
nor a law.
"Where is the constitutional
authorization?" Corsi asks WND. "The Bush administration has
just decided to restructure the executive branch to include
Mexico and Canada without bothering to notify the voting
public or the U.S. Congress."
Corsi said the approximately 1,000 pages
of SPP documentation received under his FOIA request will be
posted "as soon as possible" to the website of the
of which he is a member.
Minutemen founder Jim Gilchrist "and I
plan to publish extensively from these documents," Corsi
said, "and we want the readers to be able to see for
themselves the original documents that evidence the
conclusions we are drawing."
Corsi said the FOIA request has only been
"There are hundreds of trilateral
meetings and agreements referenced in the documents we have,
but most of the substantive documents appear to have been
intentionally withheld," Corsi said. "In the next few days,
our lawyers will be pressing for an honest FOIA document
disclosure by the Bush administration."
