Is it time for an American Union (AU)?

The USA works well because of the national governmental structure over all the states. The European Union is slowly replicating this model with continue success. Yet, is the USA at its limits? Should an American Union involving the West Hemispheric countries be considered?

There are regions of the the USA that are more tied to Canada or Mexico than to other states. These states develop their own offices in these countries to foster these ties. But, transnational multi-party programs and coordination of efforts would be greatly facilitated by a transnational organization like an American Union.

Rather than putting up walls that will only benefit the builders of the wall and do nothing to stem illegal activities, an organization for cooperation should be established between the USA and Mexico. Once established other nations could be added.
