  •  Foreign Nationals regularly attend ALEC mtgs & (17+ / 0-)

    introduce and vote on legislation that affects the citizens of the USA.

    There are documented representatives from the UK, Georgia, Belgium, Jordan , Pakistan Canada, Australia, Czech Republic, Poland and Sweden.  Speakers come in from around the world to influence "state legislators"

    I have written several times and DKer Bob Sloan has also written on the foreign national influence inside of ALEC - all done outside the purview of the State Department.

    In addition - ALEC legislators travel to these other countries as representatives of the US - outside the purview of the State department - "state legislators" just taking a trip.

    In 2009 - while we had soldiers in Iraq - at war - a group of ALECers went to Iraq led by Whisnant out of WA to discuss the Iraqi government implementation.

    Currently ALEC supports and pushes the TPP and trade agreements with Taiwan and India.  Both Taiwan and India have had reps speak at ALEC meetings.
