American Borders Will Be Changing

Wendy McElroy
Activist Post

An iron curtain is slowly descending around the borders of America. When it falls, some people will be shut in; others will be shut out. It will be up to bureaucrats and agents with guns to decide which one of those people you are.

Changes in border policy are in the wind. On June 27th, 2013, the 1,300-page Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act passed the Senate and proceeded to the House of Representatives. Debate on the Act has focused on the path of citizenship being extended to the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in America. This is controversial because Republicans fear that the new Americans, and especially Hispanics, will vote Democrat in upcoming elections. Happily, the bill has stalled in the House.

But one of the worst features of the Act has bipartisan support: namely, the ramping up of border security. (The security provisions were a cynical bribe to House Republicans by Senate Democrats who are far more interested in ramming the immigration policies through.) The Act allocates an astounding $46.3 billion for increased border control. It proposes to hire 20,000 additional border patrol agents, swelling their numbers from about 21,000 (in fiscal 2012) to about 40,000. The stated focus of the mega bucks and muscle is the US-Mexican border but the entire system would be even more militarized.

Shutting People In

The proposed doubling of might comes in the wake of the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA's) announcement of a dramatic expansion in the screening of airline passengers. Even before a flyer arrives, he will be profiled by the TSA based on his travel record, and personal documents such as employment information, property records, police files, tax data, and car registration.....

What to Expect at the US Border?
More questioning. More in-depth screening. More difficulty in traveling to and from the United States. The situation will grow steadily worse through 2014, when a compromise bill on immigration and border control is probable....

Not until World War I were official passports required by most countries. In the beginning of the twentieth century,
document-free international travel was the rule.
That meant that people could freely travel between borders, creating unimaginable possibilities for business.
It's unimaginable today because international living is so regulated that a US citizen who wishes to leave the country – even for only a visit – must present an official US Passport for visits to neighbors Canada or Mexico.
Unfortunately, as a US passport goes from a top-tier financial asset to a financial burden, a US citizen with only one passport enjoys little or no safety on the international level…

But, in the 21st century - and thanks to TDV - You can have options
…BUT ONLY IF you seize upon them!

You can secure another nation’s passport through TDV and achieve the safety you need to feel comfortable in uncertain and changing times…

Some countries require Americans, Canadians, and other nationalities pay a fee to enter. This is the case with Argentina, Bolivia and Chile, for example.
Additionally there are plenty of countries, like Brazil and Paraguay that require US citizens to obtain costly and time consuming visas for entry.
It's a pretty good feeling to bypass the Americans lining up and pulling out their cash for entry and head instead to a line for those with non-US passports.”


A Canadian bank just closed the accounts of all customers who are citizens of Iran. Non-US banks refuse to do business with US citizens.
The Netherlands forced GoldMoney to refuse Dutch customers. Offshore brokerage firms do not accept US customers. Argentina and Italy are outright forbidding citizens to move money out of the country.
A second passport in this type of situation could literally mean THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KEEPING YOUR ASSETS AND LOSING THEM ALL.



FACTA form 8938; Report of Foreign Bank Account Form; Foreign Earned Income Exclusion…Never heard of these?
You’re not alone.
The US Government has been closing as many doors as possible for its citizens.
Last year, TDV’s main contact for opening foreign accounts for our US clientele wrote to us:
"You won't believe this," he said. Rietumu bank,... (one of the best and most important banks in Latvia)... called me today.  From now on they won't accept US clients."
"FACTA?" we wondered.
"They wouldn't say... but obviously that's why," he said.  "I just thank goodness they didn't say they were going to close existing US accounts... you know how many clients I have there?"
