TPP allows for 'free flow of workers' between countries to create cheap labor pool for corporations

TPP allows for 'free flow of workers' between countries to create cheap labor pool for corporations --'Unrestricted immigration' created by TPP - Dick Morris | 20 April 2015 | On Newsmax TV's "America's Forum" Monday, political commentator Dick Morris said the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) 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 said, "I don't think that people understand that in this deal which is a trade agreement among Australia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Japan, Canada, the United States, Mexico, Peru, and Chile, there's a provision for free flow of workers, just like in the European Union. What It means is unrestricted immigration. It means literally that Congress would not have the authority to restrict immigration because a treaty supersedes a statute under our Constitution."
