Mon­day on New­max TV’s “America’s Forum,” polit­i­cal com­men­ta­tor Dick Mor­ris said the Trans-Pacif­ic Part­ner­ship (TPA) fast track being sup­port­ed by many Repub­li­cans has a pro­vi­sion that allows for the “free flow of work­ers” between coun­tries, essen­tial­ly cre­at­ing a back­door to “unre­strict­ed immi­gra­tion.”

Mor­ris said, “This is huge. I hope every­body lis­ten­ing takes action call your sen­a­tor about it. If he is a Repub­li­can he is vot­ing wrong. “I dont think that peo­ple under­stand that in this deal which is a trade agree­ment among Aus­tralia, Malaysia, Viet­nam, Japan, Cana­da, the Unit­ed States, Mex­i­co, Peru, and Chile, there’s a pro­vi­sion for free flow of work­ers, just like in the Euro­pean Union. What it means is unre­strict­ed immi­gra­tion. It means lit­er­al­ly that con­gress would not have the author­i­ty to restrict immi­gra­tion because a treaty super­sedes a statute under our con­sti­tu­tion.”
