TISA: Another Secret Trade Treaty

Posted in Legislation, Politics3 years ago • Written by Defender Of LibertyNo Comments

     There are several trade treaties that Obama has been negotiating in secret for several years. One of those treaties is the Trade In Services Agreement (TISA). Wikileaks revealed several pages of TISA that are quite disturbing and are more proof that the masterminds in Washington, D.C. are working closely with the United Nations, U.S. Chamber of Crony Capitalism, and corporatists to obliterate U.S. immigration laws and create an America without borders.

     Multinational corporations favor TISA like they do NAFTA, GATT, TPP, and TTIP because it provides them unhindered access to cheap labor in third world countries, with a guarantee from the masterminds in D.C. that once they have manufactured their goods in third world countries, they will enjoy tariff-free access to the U.S. market. The number of “free trade” agreements has significantly increased in the past decade due to the unquenchable desire by multinational corporations to access even cheaper labor in third world countries they’ve yet to gain access to for various political reasons.

     What TISA does is provide a vast supply of cheap labor, skilled and unskilled, for multinational corporations by allowing for unhindered access to these countries, but does something that free trade agreements do not normally do, it dictates immigration policy for the member nations.

     Wikileaks dumped several pages of TISA documents that cover various topics in the trade agreement, including 10 pages on immigration. There are several sections in the documents that make it clear that member nations cannot restrict the free flow of workers, which means the trade agreement supersedes the immigration policies of the member nations.

     There are several sections in the pages on immigration that would force the United States to change its immigration laws or violate the trade agreement. For instance, page 4 of the trade agreement reads: “Each party shall allow entry and temporary stay of [intra-corporate transferees]. Such entry and temporary stay shall be for a minimal period of [X] years. Parties shall not maintain or adopt Economic Needs Tests for [intra-corporate transferees].” This verbiage allows for the free flow of foreign workers and does not allow the U.S. Immigration Department to conduct its usual means test to determine if the U.S. needs workers in a particular industry.

     TISA effectively voids what little control over immigration there is by allowing people to move from country to country as protected workers under the trade agreement. Corporations will seek these workers out in order to bring them to America to displace American workers.

     TISA list several sectors and sub-sectors of various industries that will be covered under the agreement. The following jobs are listed in TISA:

  • accounting, auditing, and bookkeeping services
  • architectural services
  • engineering services
  • integrated engineering services
  • urban planning and landscape architectural services
  • medical and dental services
  • veterinary
  • midwives and nurses
  • software implementation services
  • data processing services
  • R&D services on natural sciences
  • R&D services on social sciences and humanities
  • advertising services
  • management consulting services
  • maintenance and repair of equipment
  • general construction work
  • sewage services
  • refuse disposal services
  • sanitation and similar services
  • hotels and restaurants
  • transport services
This is not a complete list of the “services,” but there is enough here to get a clear picture of the motive behind the desire to see TISA become a binding agreement on the U.S. 
     TISA, TTIP, and TPP need to go wherever bad ideas go to die. They are not trade agreements, in fact, they have nothing to do with trade. TISA, TTIP, and TPP have everything to do with Democrats desire to surrender America’s sovereignty and turn America into a third world hell hole, i.e., fundamentally transform America. On the flip side, Republicans see these trade agreements as a way to satisfy their corporate donors and bundlers by opening America’s borders and delivering cheap labor to them in order to guarantee that campaign donations continue to flow into their war chests.
     Kill TISA, TTIP, and TPP! America and the American people should come first, second, and third.
