Grand Boulevard of the Americas, a Step Towards the NAFTA Superhighway

On Monday, members of the Armed Services rededicated Kansas City's Grand Boulevard as the Grand Boulevard of the Americas. The poles along the street have been adorned with more than 150 flags from 34 countries.

“Kansas City is fast evolving into a global city,” Malouff told a gathering of more than 100 people on the Sprint Center plaza, adding that Grand Boulevard is the physical manifestation of his Pan-American effort.

Representatives from Brazil, Colombia, Chile, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Spain attended the dedication ceremonies. The project is intended to be the begining steps towards making KC a hub/inland port for "international business, trade and tourism" otherwise known as offshoring, drug and human smuggling, and illegal immigration.

More proof there is no such thing as the NAFTA superhighway.
