Who's invading who? Or ... deja-vu all over again

¡Para Justicia y Libertad! -- with devastating logic on their side -- concludes NAFTA is designed to erase our national borders, as the right-wingers claim ... and it's not exactly a new idea.
...a conquest does not have to be done militarily. Three years before NAFTA took effect, José Luis Calva of the National University of Mexico, predicted, "If the governments and legislatures of the three countries agree to liberalize trade in agricultural goods, U.S. citizens should be prepared to receive some 15 million Mexican migrants. The Border Patrol will be unable to detain them, and even a new iron curtain, rising on the border at a moment when the Cold War has given way to economic warfare among nations, will buckle under the weight of millions of Mexicans thrown off their lands by free trade." The essence of the American empire is not territorial control but wresting of economic control from another country and dominating that nation economically. How long will this "peaceful conquest" of Mexico continue to go unnoticed?
