When is 'Made in USA' 'NOT Made in USA'?
When it is made by Chinese owned factories,
using 100% Chinese materials and parts, by Chinese
citizen workers, 800 miles from mainland China on
the US Commonwealth island of Saipan and other
Northern Mariana Islands.
Per current USA law (as of Jan 2000), can
companies getting their products from Saipan
still label them "Made in USA"?
Yes! What a scam!
Sweatshops, immigrant workers, sub-minimum wages,
stolen passports, beatings, forced abortion &
prostitution, rats, barbed wire and armed guards.

Take Pride in America Coalition (www.TakePride.org):
- "Documentation of an illegal abortion network associated with
Saipan 's nearly $1 billion-a-year garment industry poses a
potential problem for the industry's backers, who include
congressional Republican leaders strongly opposed to abortion.
Among them is House Majority Whip Tom DeLay, R-Tex., who
visited Saipan on a CNMI -paid trip over New Year's with his wife,
daughter and four aides. DeLay lauded the commonwealth's governor and garment industry during the trip as leading lights of "free market success" and said he favors creating a similar "guest-worker program" for Mexicans in the United States, with no minimum wages. " (from TakePride.org)
