NADB Many Americans are completely unaware of the North American Development Bank (NADB), how they operate, who benefits, and how they’re using taxpayers hard earned cash.

The NADB is what oversees the North American Union (NAU) infrastructure expansion deep into Mexico. It started out by convincing Americans living along the US/Mex border that the purpose was to enhance living conditions along the border, ie – waste water treatment facilities and modern infrastructure.

Immediately after 9/11 the NADB rushed through a host of projects aimed at expanding more than 100 miles into Mexico, at US taxpayer expense. More than $2 billion taxpayer dollars has been spent so far.

Are you beginning to see why the drug trafficking, child prostitution, killing and kidnapping has increased so dramatically on our southern border? These NADB projects are a major reason for the escalation in violence between the Mexican police and (U.S.Fast and Furious) drug dealers.

Introduction

The North American Development Bank was created by President Bill Clinton in order to “assist development along the Mexican border and show sympathy with the concerns of Hispanic Representatives.” The NADB and its sister institution, the Border Environment Cooperation Commission (BECC), were created under the auspices of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to address “environmental issues” in the U.S.-Mexico border region. bsflag

The two institutions initiated operations under the November 1993 Agreement Between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the United Mexican States Concerning the Border Environment Cooperation Commission(BECC) and a North American Development Bank (the “Charter”).

NADB was established in San Antonio, Texas, and began operations on November 10, 1994, with the initial capital subscriptions of the U.S. and Mexican governments.

In June 2000, the NADB Board of Directors initiated discussions on expanding the Bank’s financing activities to “more effectively serve border needs.” These discussions gave rise to a broad set of reform initiatives, some of which required changes to the original NADB-BECC Charter. Following passage of the necessary U.S. and Mexican legislation, an amended Charter went into force on August 6, 2004.

North American Development Bank is also known as NAD-BANK.
