Jobs To Mexico/Mexicans Here
Trump opens the NAFTA can of worms

Crain's Detroit Business -- August 12, 2015   
In Michigan, Donald Trump takes aim at Ford Motor Co., illegal immigrants
    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump came to the home state of the auto industry and attacked Ford Motor Co. for building factories in Mexico. And the Michigan faithful in attendance sided with the bombastic mogul.
    “Ford is building a $2.5 billion plant in Mexico,” he roared to a packed auditorium in Birch Run, and 2,000 voices responded with lusty boos. “I'll actually give them a good idea. Why don't we just let the illegals drive the cars and trucks right into our country?”
    The real estate developer and former reality TV star boasted that “President Trump” won't let Dearborn-based Ford move jobs to Mexico and will convince the auto maker's CEO Mark Fields to bring jobs back to the United States. [...]
    “I've been waiting for somebody with cojones for a long time,” said Jim Maratta, 68, a Vietnam veteran sitting in the front row wearing his VFW cap and an American flag shirt. “We need somebody with guts. I want to see him do something for jobs and get those deadbeats in Congress off their butts.”

    NAFTA was promoted as a means of reducing illegal immigration. It had the opposite effect. As I showed in this video produced in 2000. NAFTA was part of a long-term plan by Mexico to move its population north so they could jump across the border.
    If you watch it, you will see none other than Jerry Brown, now governor of the Hispanic State of California, agreed that NAFTA would cause more Mexicans to cross the border.
    Not only that --- you will learn that when Ford builds a plant in Mexico it will not use parts made in Mexico. We are essentially trading with ourselves --- and the planet --- not Mexico. U.S. assembly jobs were sent to Mexico --- by design.
    Politicians knew that NAFTA would hurt America --- but they did it anyway.
