Pam Key at Breitbart reports that:

" 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: Obama Sneaking in ‘Unrestricted Immigration’ in TPA Trade Deal, April 20, 2015]
I have often said that outsourcing (which has been facilitated by all the "free trade" agreements) and importation of foreign workers are just two sides of the same cheap labor coin. What I didn't expect was that both sides of the coin would be enabled by the same agreement. This agreement would be between Australia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Japan, Canada, the United States, Mexico, Peru, and Chile. If the Senate approves the agreement it would take precedent over any immigration law.

This agreement means not just an increase in the trade deficit—something supporters claim doesn't matter—but further destruction of the middle class and the dilution of the historic American people. In short, it means a fast track to the Third World—to a place like Brazil with a fabulously wealthy ruling elite with the rest part of the struggling poor.
