As part of the ongoing North American “integration” plot being pursued by Mexican and Canadian authorities in conjunction with all arms of the Obama administration’s federal bureaucracy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced some $230,000 dollars in “grants” to two cities in Mexico. The controversial machinations are taking place under the banner of a “bi-national” program tied to NAFTA known as “Border 2020,” or “Frontera 2020” in Spanish. However, the latest EPA schemes in Mexico, while small, represent merely one component of what analysts say is a much broader effort to undermine U.S. national sovereignty.
Ultimately, as The New American has documented extensively, the goal is to merge the United States into regional and even global systems of governance. Top officials have admitted as much, and documents leaked by WikiLeaks confirmed the radical scope of the plot in North America. Pseudo-environmental pretexts, of course, are just one piece of the puzzle — others include managed trade being deceptively marketed as “free” trade, law enforcement, “security,” transportation, military, regulation, labor, monetary issues, and more. Still, supposed “environment” programs have become a crucial component of the broader assault on property rights and national sovereignty that is accelerating worldwide.
In a press release issued last week, the controversial EPA, created by an unconstitutional “executive order,” unveiled almost half of a million dollars in taxpayer-funded “grants” for various schemes along the U.S.-Mexico border. Among the seven different projects, the EPA said, are the expansion of a “municipal oil recycling program” and the development of an “air emissions inventory” in the Mexican city of Nogales. In the Mexican city of Ensenada, meanwhile, the EPA will be doling out U.S. taxpayer funds to supposedly restore the upper Tijuana river corridor.
“These grants will help improve air quality, create a healthier river, and reduce the waste going into local landfills,” claimed EPA “Regional Administrator” for the Pacific Southwest Jared Blumenfeld in a statement. “Communities on both sides of the border will receive benefits as their environment and public health are better protected.” According to the EPA, the spending of taxpayer funds is part of a partnership with the “Border Environment Cooperation Commission” under the “bi-national” U.S.-Mexico Environmental Program known as “Border 2020.”
Critics were not amused. “While tiny in relation to the trillions spent annually by our federal government, the awards given by the EPA to these foreign entities show increasing disconnect between the EPA and Americans,” observed conservative analyst Hal Hawkins, who edits the politically oriented Hardhatters.com website. “Priority was given to programs, like the used oil collection in Mexico, that will most likely have zero effect on improving the lives of U.S. citizens, and the several hundred thousand in taxpayer dollars could have been better spent repairing our own infrastructure.”
