Minutemen Book Prompts Calls for Congressional Investigation
Yahoo! News, June 15, 2006
Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 15, 2006 -- Revelations in an upcoming book by the founder of the
Minuteman Project and the co-author of "Unfit for Command" may result in a Congressional
investigation of the White House, this according to the authors. At issue are the Bush
Administration's secretive efforts to establish a North American regulatory agency with Mexico and
"Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders" (World Ahead Publishing; hardcover: $25.95;
ISBN 0977898415) is authored by Jim Gilchrist and Jerome R. Corsi and scheduled for nationwide
release on July 25. But shocking information contained in the book is already causing concern
among lawmakers who are worried that the Bush Administration is ceding America's border
sovereignty to a North American trans-national bureaucracy without their approval.
While researching their highly anticipated book on illegal immigration, the authors uncovered
evidence suggesting that the Bush Administration established an office in the Department of
Commerce to collaborate on regulation with the Mexican and Canadian governments and without
oversight from Congress. Corsi is scheduled to join Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) on the nationally
syndicated G. Gordon Liddy Show on Thursday as he calls upon Congress to investigate this
previously secret initiative.
The office in question is tasked with implementing the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), a
tri-lateral accord signed last year by President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and
then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin. According to the State Department's website, the SPP is
intended to "protect North America from external threats... implement a border-facilitation
strategy... pursue regulatory cooperation... and (enhance) environmental stewardship."
"The SPP was never authorized by Congress, and no congressional committee has oversight of
the SPP working groups," claims Corsi, whose 2004 book "Unfit for Command" helped defeat John
Kerry's presidential bid. "The Administration has also refused to disclose the results of those
working groups. It seems like President Bush doesn't want Americans to know that a North
American version of the European Union is being created right under their nose, and without
"Battle to Secure America's Borders" is a selection of the month for the American Compass Book
Club, and an alternate selection for the Conservative Book Club, History Book Club, and Military
Book Club. It will be available in bookstores nationwide July 25th.
