is an internationalist," said Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo. "He is
going to do what he can to create a place where the idea of
America is just that – it's an idea. It's not an actual place
defined by borders. I mean this is where this guy is really
Tancredo lashed out at the White House's lack
of action in securing U.S. borders, and said efforts to merge
the U.S. with both Mexico and Canada is not a fantasy.
"I know this is dramatic – or maybe somebody
would say overly dramatic – but I'm telling you, that everything
I see leads me to believe that this whole idea of the North
American Union, it's not something that just is written about by
right-wing fringe kooks. It is something in the head of the
president of the United States, the president of Mexico, I think
the prime minister of Canada buys into it. ...
"And they would just tell you, 'Well, sure,
it's a natural thing. It's part of the great globalization ...
of the economy.' They assume it's a natural, evolutionary event
that's going to occur here. I hope they're wrong and I'm going
to try my best to make sure they're wrong. But I'm telling you
the tide is great. The tide is moving in their direction. We
have to say that."
Tancredo was in South Florida joining the
likes of media giants Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Ann
Coulter at a four-day event called "Restoration Weekend" which
concluded today. The gathering was hosted by the
David Horowitz Freedom Center.
Tancredo pointed to Florida's largest city as

become a Third World country," he said. "You just pick it up and
take it and move it someplace. You would never know you're in
the United States of America. You would certainly say you're in
a Third World country."
He said quickly changing demographics can
cause big problems, and specifically cited the "Islamization of
Europe" in recent years which has led to conflict across the
Tancredo isn't the only congressman warning
about plans to integrate the three nations of this continent.
Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas,
denounced plans for the proposed "NAFTA superhighway" in his
state as part of a larger plot for merger of the U.S., Canada
and Mexico into a North American Union.
WND reported this month, Enrique Berruga, Mexico's
ambassador to the
Nations, came right out and said a North
American Union is needed – and even provided a deadline.
Berruga said the merger must be complete in
the next eight years before the U.S. baby boomer retirement wave
hits full force.
Tancredo – a heavyweight champion of the
border-security issue, and whose new book on how to solve that
vexing problem, titled
Mortal Danger," became an immediate best seller – just may
be elected president,
Fox News's Neil Cavuto said recently.
"Illegals coming into America are sure to be
front and center in the next presidential election here," Cavuto
said on a June broadcast of
"Your World with Neil
Cavuto," "and Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo certainly
knows it. He owns this issue. And straw polls show that, if he
were to run for president, he just might well be president."
