Heads up everyone about HR5430

By Staff | Dec 27, 2019

To the editor:

After watching what the U.K. is going through to get out of the European Union, why would we, the U.S., want to go down a very scary similar path? The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act, bill HR5430, is looking very much like the same regulations and regulatory agency as the EU. Here are five reasons to contact your senator and speak against this bill.

Reason 1. It is above U.S. and state law. We are not protected to maintain sovereignty.

2. Supranational bureaucracy. The U.S. is not protected from un-elected bureaucrats!!

3. U.N. law of the Sea Treaty. We are not protected. The U.S. would be bound into observing the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea under Sustainable Fisheries Management.

4. North American Development Bank. A NAFTA project funded by $l.5 billion U.S. contribution!

5. Open immigration. Through “cross Border Trade in Services” the U.S. federal government can be sued (forced) over any restriction on the number of employees that a company may want to bring across the border into the U.S.

Look at the hassle Pine Island has been forced to go through in keeping “east Matlacha” out of the hands of Cape Coral open development… HR5430 hands power over to other people to tell us what we can and cannot do in our own country and is above our own laws.
