Read the whole thing for yourself:
“I support the Task Force report and its recommendations aimed at building a safer and more prosperous North America. Economic prosperity and a world safe from terrorism and other security threats are no doubt inextricably linked. While governments play an invaluable role in both regards, we must emphasize the imperative that economic investment be led and perpetuated by the private sector. There is no force proven like the market for aligning incentives, sourcing capital, and producing results like financial markets and profit-making businesses. This is simply necessary to sustain a higher living standard for the poorest among us – truly the measure of our success. As such, investment funds and financing mechanisms should be deemed attractive instruments by those committing the capital and should only be developed in conjunction with market participants.”
Here are some highlights of the CFR report endorsed by Heidi Cruz:
“To that end, the Task Force proposes the creation by 2010 of a North American community to enhance security, prosperity, and opportunity. We propose a community based on the principle affirmed in the March 2005 Joint Statement of the three leaders that ‘‘our security and prosperity are mutually dependent and complementary.’’ Its boundaries will be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter within which the movement of people, products, and capital will be legal, orderly, and safe. Its goal will be to guarantee a free, secure, just, and prosperous North America. …
Our economic focus should be on the creation of a common economic space that expands economic opportunities for all people in the region, a space in which trade, capital, and people flow freely. …
WHAT WE SHOULD DO BY 2010
• Lay the groundwork for the freer flow of people within North America. The three governments should commit themselves to the long-term goal of dramatically diminishing the need for the current intensity of the governments’ physical control of cross-border traffic, travel, and trade within North America. A long-term goal for a North American border action plan should be joint screening of travelers from third countries at their first point of entry into North America and the elimination of most controls over the temporary movement of these travelers within North America.” ..
To make the most of the impressive pool of skill and talent within North America, the three countries should look beyond the NAFTA visa system. The large volume of undocumented migrants from Mexico within the United States is an urgent matter for those two countries to address. A long-term goal should be to create a ‘‘North American preference’’—new rules that would make it much easier for employees to move and for employers to recruit across national boundaries within the continent. This would enhance North American competitiveness, increase productivity, contribute to Mexico’s development, and address one of the main outstanding issues on the Mexican-U.S. bilateral agenda.
Canada and the United States should consider eliminating restrictions on labor mobility altogether and work toward solutions that, in the long run, could enable the extension of full labor mobility to Mexico as well. …
WHAT WE SHOULD DO NOW
• Expand temporary migrant worker programs. Canada and the United States should expand programs for temporary labor migration from Mexico. For instance, Canada’s successful model for managing seasonal migration in the agricultural sector should be expanded to other sectors where Canadian producers face a shortage of workers and Mexico may have a surplus of workers with appropriate skills. Canadian and U.S. retirees living in Mexico should be granted working permits in certain fields, for instance as English teachers.
Move to full labor mobility between Canada and the United States. To make companies based in North America as competitive as possible in the global economy, Canada and the United States should consider eliminating all remaining barriers to the ability of their citizens to live and work in the other country. This free flow of people would offer an important advantage to employers in both countries by giving them rapid access to a larger pool of skilled labor, and would enhance the well-being of individuals in both countries by enabling them to move quickly to where their skills are needed. In the long term, the two countries should work to extend this policy to Mexico as well, though doing so will not be practical until wage differentials between Mexico and its two North American neighbors have diminished considerably.
So Ted, which is it? Your wife has worked with CFR on a project to make open borders more open, in order to keep wages low & to benefit investment firms like the one she works at. Could you please clear this up?
They’re all on the same side. Even the Clinton’s. This whole election thing is designed to distract and disarm, politically, the public, while they continue their shady deals, under the radar legislation, and raking in the bucks as fast as they can. The government is simply the lead corporation over a group of corporations. The “United States” is just another business address, nothing more. When they drink it dry, they’ll shitcan it along with the other empty beer cans.
Yes, Mr. Owen – for too many this is exactly what it is.
The AmerI can people mean nothing to them. ..Our heritage. Our history is nothing to them. .There only concern is profit for themselves The President. GOP’s, Ceo’s, Congress and the Senate..Cruz , the Clintons they are all more corrupt then I could imagine
Have you ever wondered how these idiots plan to keep paying this massive debt with lower wages? The retail industry is dying because no one has the disposable income to buy that cheap crap from China. Now China is broke too. We’re broke, Europe is broke, China is broke, Japan is broke because of China, and they have grand delusions of Globalism. Is this the new normal? Do they even know normal? I don’t think they do. This looks like millions of Americans no longer have anything to lose and if they sense an existential threat a tiny insignificant minority of cowardly rats is gonna die and go completely extinct.
Which is why we can never truly trust Ted Cruz. NOT because his last name is Cruz (his father is Criollo, his mother Irish-Italian), but because he’s a lamestream conservative ideologue. And there are a lot of native born white American lamestream conservative ideologues. Let’s say Ted Cruz’s father was instead his mother’s father, so Ted Cruz today would be Senator and Presidential candidate Ted Smith. He’d be doing the same things. Because the proximate causation of what he is going isn’t Hispanic, but lamestream conservatism. And there is nothing in lamestream conservative ideology that necessarily begs or demands nationalism, ethno or otherwise. It is perfectly compatible with globalism and open borders.
Audit the Ted. That about sums it up, except his bogus birth credentials.
Sorry, no more ‘I’m an Amurrican, even though I was born of foreign parents’ garbage. Adios, XENOS.
Cruz speaks with a forked tongue.
I don’t mean to be obnoxious. But I think they pick the Presidents ahead of time. Obama was picked, years before he even ran, to be President, by the oligarchs. The whole electoral process is a sham. If I’m right, Hillary will be the next president, whatever the hype may say to the contrary. They were talking about her being President, the minute Bill set foot in the Whitehouse. She’s an oligarch, and the oligarchs want her in there.
You’re not ‘obnoxious’, Mr. Owen – if one has been around long enough, it’s difficult to avoid this suspicion.
Amen. I hope 2016 might be, what is called a water shed of change. I hope Hillary is not elected. Heidi Cruz may mean the elite are hedging their bets?
Is Trump also deceiving America, that he too is a elite con man, for the NAU?
They would not be after Trump the way they are if he had been..They don’t bother any other Candidate , only him..He has faught everything they do ,and the media. .Because he doesn’t fly by there rules..I still say Trump 2016
George Bush was picked also. Both of them.
Liberal Democracy is merely the facade behind which Plutocracy, and thus globalism, rules.
Sir, as you know I am a Ted Cruz supporter; though, his varying position on immigration and his wife are two areas of concern fro me.
What about all his blatant lies and how he has repeatedly backstabbed the other candidates like Carson and Rubio? That doesn’t bother you?
I see that he has been accused of these things, but, in my investigation, the allegations did not hold up.
But, let’s say, just for one moment, that that he was guilty of these things.
You still support Trump? – yet he has said a lot of scurrilously false things about more than a few.
So, let’s cut to the chase : I know there are not perfect candidates, no perfect humans. For what do I look?
A candidate that has run for office, at least once, and, for at least several years, can demonstrate that he governed, in his elected position, along the lines of how he camnpaigned.
To my mind, the greatest problem with the country, the root of all problems, is that folks say one thing then do another.
Mr. Cruz told the people of Texas he would not change upon his arrival in Washington. He was true to his word.
That’s why the establishment hate him – NOT because he is a brusque guy…
By the way, this measure is also a bigger and bigger recommendation, to me, why Mr. Trump is a good candidate.
With the passage of every day, my wife and I become more enthusiastick about the likelihood of voting for Mr. Trump, in November – if he is still alive, at that time.
Have a good evening!
I like what the Comanche say : you can judge
Thank you and your wife for being open minded about it. I am glad you are at least willing to give Mr. Trump a chance. I hope you check out some of his rally speeches on Youtube to see what the man is really like. There is also a new video by a Brandon Tatum, a police officer who attended the Tucson rally. He wants to let everyone know the truth about what happened at that event and how he came away feeling about Mr. Trump. It is a real eye opener. Thanks for listening.
Trump is all hot air empty promises of more hope and change.
We should correct the mistakes made in 2008, not repeat them.
As you know, Ted Cruz is rock solid.
Why gamble on the very future of our nation when there is a long time proven true Constitutional Conservative in the race?
Yes, Mr. Nimrod, I do most heartily agree with you that Senator Cruz is rock solid. From this traditional Tarheel’s point of view, he is far and away the best candidacy since Ronald Reagan.
That said, while I see what you are implying about Mr. Trump’s candidacy, vis-a-vis, President Obama’s, I do believe that Mr. Trump is, whatever his personal shortcomings are, telling us the truth about his intents for this land. Mr. Obama, however, has turned out to be the wort, and most inveterate, dissembler, whom I have yet to see stride across the national political stage, save for Miss Hillary.
Hell, the two of them make Richard Milhous Nixon look like the bastion of veracity.
Thank you for your message.
His name is Rafael Eduardo Cruz. His is a Canadian Cuban Communist. Why do you support him?
Mr. Jeffrey- I understand that Senator Cruz is not Jesus Christ – BUT … a Cuban communist?
Yes, his daddy is Cuban, but, Communist?
Mr. Jeffrey – if Senator Cruz is a communist, then what word would you use to describe Miss Hillary or, even further still, Mr. Bernie?
I didn’t know this about his wife until just now. Egads. The election could come down to the choice between a Goldman Sachs shill and a Goldman Sachs shill.
TOLD YOU CRUZ IS A LYING PHONY! ?? ?? Vote For Trump
All Americans pay a 10% tax you fill out on a post card. Abolish the IRS. Repeal every page of Obamacare, day one. Cruz is clinical.
Read this book and you will see exactly how the lying, private army of statists and technocrats are trying to destroy our nation!
Ted’s agenda uncovered and laid before the voters, says it all. We cannot let this snake oil salesman win the nomination and keep the only clear choice for defeating Hillary, from the White house, Mr. Trump. Check out the facebook page, Votersfortrump, to learn more about the man and why he is the only one who can defeat Hillary. His policies are what the American people want as his growing support numbers show.
Ted Cruz has a long history of fighting for and defending the Constitution and our personal liberties. If it weren’t for Cruz standing alone the U.S. wouldn’t be a sovereign nation today. This nation would have lost it’s sovereignty eight years ago during the Bush presidency. Please read below and learn the truth about how he has fought for and defended the Constitution and our 1st and 2nd amendment rights.
Ted Cruz defended the very sovereignty of our nation in the Supreme Court.
Medellin v. Texas, 552 U.S. 491 (2008), is a United States Supreme Court decision. Ted Cruz defended the very sovereignty of the United States against overwhelming odds, opposing legal briefs from 90 foreign nations, the European Union, experts on the World Court, the American Bar Association, and one of the biggest law firms in the world that represented Jose Medellin. Ted Cruz was able to convince six out of eight members of the U. S. Supreme Court to vote in his favor even though it meant he had to stand against his friends and members of his own Republican Party (e.g., Pres. George W. Bush, Ms. Condoleezza Rice, and Paul Clement). The case of Medellin proved that the UN has no authority whatsoever to bind the United States and that no President – Republican or Democrat – has the Constitutional authority to subvert U.S. sovereignty.
Fortunately the right man was in the right place at the right time to prevail in the Medellin case. Just imagine the consequences if 0bama had the option to subvert the sovereignty of our nation via the UN and the world court when he became president. He would have been handed a dictatorship on a silver platter. The U.S. dodged a huge bullet that most people are unaware of.
Ted Cruz defended our 2nd Amendment rights.
District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), was a landmark case in which the Supreme Court of the United States held in a 5-4 decision that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution applies to federal enclaves and protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. It was the first Supreme Court case to decide whether the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense.
In the landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller, Ted Cruz drafted the amicus brief signed by the attorneys general of 31 states, which said that the D.C. handgun ban should be struck down as infringing upon the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Ted Cruz also presented oral argument for the amici states in the companion case to Heller before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Ted Cruz stood up for and defended our Veterans pro bono (for free) while in private practice.
Salazar v. Buono, 559 U.S. 700 (2010) was a decision by the Supreme Court of the United States regarding the establishment clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Ted Cruz worked on the Mojave Desert Veteran’s Memorial case while in private practice. Ted Cruz worked on the case pro bono — unpaid — for four veterans’ groups that filed a friend of the court brief with the Supreme Court. The high court ruled 5-4 that the cross may stay but also sent the case back to a lower court. “The goal of avoiding governmental endorsement [of religion] does not require eradication of all religious symbols in the public realm,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for a plurality of his colleagues.
Ted Cruz defended our religious freedom.
Van Orden v. Perry, 545 U.S. 677 (2005), was a United States Supreme Court case involving whether a display of the Ten Commandments on a monument given to the government at the Texas State Capitol in Austin violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. Ted Cruz successfully defended the constitutionality of the Ten Commandments monument on the Texas State Capitol grounds before the Fifth Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court, winning 5–4.

TED CRUZ BATTLES ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT SAVES US SOVEREIGNTY
Ted Cruz has earned and deserves your respect and support.
Then why would he be married to someone like her
First, his name is NOT Ted. His name is Rafael Eduardo Cruz.
Rafael is a Canadian Cuban Communist. Why else, if he loves our Constitution, did he shut down our beloved government once he got into the Senate? Who else shuts down democracies? Communists. He is working under the radar to take away our sovereignty and our God-given rights by claiming to be sent by the Almighty. We who read the Bible know that you look at the actions and not the words. Rafael even attempted to take money from a homosexual hotelier by promising to support homosexual marriage in exchange for Rafael’s “support of Israel”.
Amen! Ted Cruz is the BEST Choice and MOST qualified for President of the United States of America. God Bless him and protect him and Heidi from these horrible lies and accusations. These articles are old, weak and not relevant. Heidi is a Godly woman who is so brilliant and wise that this is article is not her character. Your response was a wonderful display of Ted Cruz the Fighter of Justice for the people! Go President Cruz Go!! So proud of him and beautiful Heidi!! Love them and praying for them!!
Looks to me like She does one thing an Cruz is preaching something different. OK Cruz, which is it, Close the Borders or Open the Borders? Is this another one of those He said she said things?
Either way they win, he promises close the birder but January 2015 he was videoed shaking hands and passing out food and gifts to lines of illegals as they crossed the border
Does our Government not think the American citizens have a right to know what is happening in and to American..Our government thinks we need open borders. ..I don’t think we do and it explains why they are so against Trump and his wall
The Canadian Cuban Communist’s name is Rafael Eduardo Cruz. NOT Ted.
