Mexico ambassador: We need N. American Union in 8 years

U.S. 'investment,' EU-style merger key to better relations, says diplomat

There have been conferences, academic papers, mock student parliaments and 
secret meetings on a confederation of the U.S., Canada and Mexico into future 
North American Union, but, until now, few officials of any of the three 
countries have publicly called for the creation of a European Union-style 

In a panel discussion on U.S.-Mexico relations last Tuesday at the University of
Texas at San Antonio, Enrique Berruga, Mexico's ambassador to the United 
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.

The discussion of was organized by the UTSA Mexico Center and the San Antonio 
campus of Mexico's National Autonomous University.

Noting that both countries depend on each other economically, Berruga urged 
leaders to put petty politics aside for the region's benefit. He said the U.S. 
should abandon plans to build border fences and instead "invest" more in Mexico 
so the country can do a better job standing on its own.

"We will be together forever and we need to make the best out of it," Berruga 
said, as reported in the San Antonio Express News.

Another panelist, economist Mauricio Gonzalez, who works for the North American 
Development Bank, created as part of the North American Free Trade Agreement, or
NAFTA, explained that illegal immigration was actually good for the U.S. 
economy. While it's true, the said, that the immigrants bring down wages in the 
U.S., it is only by about 2 percent. In addition, he cited studies showing 
illegal immigrants do not drain U.S. social services.

"NAFTA was a very important first step, but we need to start thinking outside 
the NAFTA box," Gonzalez said.

Panelist Robert Rivard, editor of the Express-News and a former Newsweek 
correspondent in Latin America, spoke of the lingering impact of 9-6 ­ that is, 
Sept. 6, 2001, five days before the terrorist attacks, when the U.S. and Mexican
governments were on the brink of a far-reaching immigration deal. In the wake of
the terrorist attacks five days later, there was little chance Americans would 
accept more open borders and pardons for illegal aliens already in the country.

"People of peace can't build walls between each other," Rivard said of the move 
to build the border fence. "It's a wall meant to corral Republican voters, not 
to keep out Mexican workers," he added.
