    The brand new umbrella called the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), spanning a big part of the world's latitude and longitude, is just too big an entity to operate in any meaningful sense.

    Its coherence is simply based on the historical quirk that, for a couple of hundred years of human history, rapacious colonizing iberians spread their genes westwards, killings many millions of indigenous peoples in the process, until their genes predominated in much of the gene-pool.

    So, their genes predominate; so what?

    In the forseeable future their genes will NOT predominate in the USA. Census projection for 2050 = 102million = 24.4% Latino.
    The governance of the large-minority Latino-genes (60% Mexican) will be WASP until, by nett migration and differential breeding rates, a voting majority make the USA a predominantly Latin American confederation. Some chance!
    The USA will keep the Green Card and Illegals at just the right level to populate the menial and manual agricultural sectors *and no more*.

    No, this 'aspirational' new Community is right to keep out the USA and Canada - even if they wanted to join.

    But don't hold you breath waiting for it to do anything significant.
