Ann Coulter: Trade Agreement Is 'Backup Amnesty' for Obama

By    |   Friday, 12 Jun 2015 05:58 PM

Author and political commentator Ann Coulter is slamming a controversial Trade and International Services Agreement contained in the scuttled sweeping bill that would fast-track trade deals, charging it will be used by President Barack Obama as a "backup amnesty."

In an interview with IJReview about her new book, "Adios America!" Coulter takes aims at the secretive Trade and International Services Agreement, decrying its defenders as "elites ganging up on Americans." 

"This is the 'backup amnesty' to Obama’s executive amnesty," Coulter told IJReview, “dash – funded by Republicans, if that doesn't get struck down by the courts."

Earlier this month, WikiLeaks released what it described as "secret documents" from the Trade in Services Agreement talks covering the United States, the European Union and 23 other countries. 

The "amnesty backup" is tucked away in a provision known as the "TiSA Annex on Movement of Natural Persons" that would relax visa restrictions for guest workers from a number of nations, including Pakistan, Turkey and Mexico, the IJReview notes.

"See, this is their backup plan, defended by all the usual suspects: George Will, Paul Ryan," Coulter told IJReview. "All the conventional wisdom, 'oh, those hysterics,' no, this is the elites ganging up on Americans."

"It is not very good for Americans, which is why Americans have never been consulted on whether we should turn our country into Mexico," she adds.

The Conservative Review also has criticized the controversial provision.

"One very disturbing aspect of TISA is the document uncovered by WikiLeaks revealing an entire section on immigration, referred to as 'Movement of Natural Persons,'" the Review writes. "This section discusses commitments by the parties not to place undue burdens on visas and singles out face-to-face interviews as an example of 'overly burdensome procedures.'"

Some 350 organizations are opposing TiSA through a petition and the fast-track authority for Obama to sign a trade deal.
