22 WHEREAS, President George W. Bush established the Security and Prosperity
23 Partnership (SPP) of North America with the nations of Mexico and Canada on March 23,
25 WHEREAS, the gradual creation of such a North American Union from a merger of the
26 United States, Mexico, and Canada would be a direct threat to the United States Constitution
27 and the national independence of the United States and would imply an eventual end to
28 national borders within North America;
29 WHEREAS, on March 31, 2006, a White House news release confirmed the continuing
30 existence of the SPP and its "ongoing process of cooperation";
31 WHEREAS, Congressman Ron Paul has written that a key to the SPP plan is an

33 new 'partnership,' a massive highway is being planned to stretch from Canada into Mexico,
34 through the state of Texas.";
35 WHEREAS, this trilateral partnership to develop a North American Union has never
36 been presented to Congress as an agreement or treaty, and has had virtually no congressional
37 oversight; and
38 WHEREAS, state and local governments throughout the United States would be
39 negatively impacted by the SPP and North American Union process, such as the "open borders"
40 vision of the SPP, eminent domain takings of private property along the planned
41 superhighways, and increased law enforcement problems along those same superhighways:
42 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the House of Representatives of the
43 state of Utah urges the United States Congress, and Utah's congressional delegation, to use all
44 of their efforts, energies, and diligence to withdraw the United States from any further
45 participation in the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.
46 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the House of Representatives urges Congress to
47 withdraw the United States from any other bilateral or multilateral activity, however named,

49 accomplish any form of North American Union as described in this resolution.
50 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to the Majority
51 Leader of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives,
