Should there be a Union of some North American countries, similar to the EU?  The original countries would be US, Canada and Greenland once they get independence?  There would be requirements for joining the NAU.

Mexico currently wouldn't be in the Union.

USA, Canada, and Greenland.  Under NAU, any citizen of any of these places may freely live in any of the others.

Greenland probably would get independence quicker and join the NAU.

Considering that we are much more free and economically powerful than either of these nations, I'd say we have very little to gain compared to them. Also, I don't want people I didn't elect from different countries dictating how I live my life. Consider the forced migration the EU initiated and the effects of that on Europe. 

However, bagged milk would be nice, so maybe....

With American settlement, since Greenland is rich in natural resources, it would benefit the NAU.

I'm referring to the crisis in Europe. The EU requires countries to accept a quota of migrants https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2017/09/06/world/europe/eu-migrants-hungary-slovakia.amp.html As we have seen in the UK and Sweden, they are probably never going back. So, more or less forced migration

So the reality is that you don't have a clue what forced migration means it's just something you heard a wingnut say. Thanks for that. The ignorance of Americans is staggering.

Both Canada and Greenland are wealthy low populated places.  Immigration from them to the US would be very small.  

I'd say we have very little to gain compared to them.
The USA gets huge amounts of natural resources.  The other nations get to freely move to the most popular immigrant destination in the world, the USA.  

Also, I don't want people I didn't elect from different countries dictating how I live my life. 
How would they?  I don't know about forced migration, but if Europe did that, it may have been to culturally unify the place.  The NAU is already culturally unified, except for Quebec and Greenland, but voluntarily migration would be enough to assiliminated these regions.  Their populations are small.

Currently, Greenland is owned by Denmark, but they would probably give the island independence if the locals voted on it and if most wanted it.

They are forcing countries to accept migrants. Sounds like forced migration to me
