Obama Addresses Immigration Issues but Not the Real Reasons for Them

immigration

Last week, President Obama announced plans to reform how the executive branch will handle deportations of illegal immigrants. Because of NAFTA, the number of people migrating illegally from Mexico each year to the United States has more than doubled. In 1993, there were an estimated 3.9 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. However, by 2011, that number exploded to an estimated 23 million! The U.S. Senate has already drafted immigration reform proposals to combat the growing migration of people from Mexico into the United States, but what is the House of Representatives doing?

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Would Destroy Our Sovereignty

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), is a trade deal proposed with 12 countries in the Asia-Pacific region including third world countries such as Vietnam and Brunei. The agreement has largely been negotiated in secret, though 600 corporate lobbyists have been allowed in. This has angered many who are concerned about what damaging details may be included in the deal, and the little bit we know for sure confirms these suspicions.

It Would be Outrageous and Even Insane if This Is Allowed to Pass

Now that the election is over we must fight hard to prevent the president from gaining more authority. Corporatists from both parties are pushing for the president to be given Fast Track authority. This so-called Fast Track legislation would let the White House negotiate trade deals such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) that Congress could only approve through an up-or-down vote, without adding amendments.

The Threat of TPP Is Alive Now More Than Ever

We have been hearing endlessly about the ebola outbreak and Kim Kardashian’s attempt to break the internet. Instead of informing us important news that is vital to our nation, the mainstream media distracts us with these trivial news stories. The mainstream media refuses to inform us about the largest international trade agreement in history, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). President Barack Obama is secretly negotiating this trade agreement alongside with 600 corporate lobbyists. Only until recently have our elected officials been allowed to sit in the meetings as long as they don’t take any notes nor talk to their staffers about it. The TPP is potentially the most dangerous economic treaty of our lives and no one is talking about it.

Now that the Election Is Over, We Must Stop Fast Track!
