Skip to comments.Why Isnít Bush On The Border? (Idiot Pat Buchanan Suggests Bush Impeachment! BARF ALERT!)

Published on Monday, August 29, 2005, in the Tracy Press. WASHINGTON â On Aug. 12, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson declared a state of emergency "due to a chaotic situation involving illegal alien smuggling and illegal drug shipments" on his southern border. Three days later, Gov. Janet Napolitano followed suit in Arizona.
Reason: the crisis on the border. The ally-ally-in-free immigration policy of George Bush and Vicente Fox, beloved of corporate America, has created a hell on our southern border.
Those Southwestern states are being inundated by illegal aliens trashing ranches, killing cattle, committing crimes and eating up tax dollars. The traffic in narcotics and human beings from Mexico is a national scandal and a human rights disgrace.
What is true of New Mexico and Arizona is true of our nation, which is home to an estimated 10 million to 15 million aliens who have broken our laws and broken into our country. It is a mark of the cowardice of our leaders that they are so terrified of being called "bigots" that they tolerate this criminality. The moral rot of political correctness runs deep today in both national parties.
A president like Teddy Roosevelt would have led the Army to the border years ago. And if Fox did not cooperate, T.R. would have gone on to Mexico City. Nor would Ike, who deported all illegal aliens in 1953, have stood still for this being done to the country he had defended in war.
What are these Bush Republicans afraid of? Dirty looks from the help at the country club?
The question of whether America is going to remain one nation, or whether our Southwest will wind up as a giant Kosovo separated by language and loyalty from the rest of America is on the table.
Where is Bush? All wrapped up in the issue of whether women in Najaf will have the same rights in divorce and custody cases as women in Nebraska. His legislative agenda for the fall includes a blanket amnesty for illegals, so they can be exploited by businesses who want to hold wages down as they dump the social costs for their employees health care, schools, courts, cops, prisons onto taxpayers.
Not only have Richardson and Napolitano awakened â they are on the front lines â so, too, has Hillary Clinton, who has spoken out against illegal immigration with a forthrightness that makes Bush sound like a talking head for La Raza.
Why is a Republican Congress permitting this president to persist in the dereliction of his sworn duty?
Bush is chief executive of the United States. It is his duty to enforce the laws. Can anyone fairly say he is enforcing the immigration laws? Those laws are clear. People who break in are to be sent back. Yet, more than 10 million have broken in with impunity.
Another million try to break in every year. Half a million succeed. Border security is homeland security. How, then, can the Department of Homeland Security say America is secure?
Who can guarantee that, of the untold millions of illegals here, and the scores of thousands ordered deported for crimes who have disappeared into our midst, none is a terrorist waiting for orders to blow up a subway or mall and massacre American citizens?
Most of these illegals come to work to send money back to their families. They are not bad people. But because they are predominantly young and male, they commit a disproportionate share of violent crimes.
Why should U.S. citizens be assaulted, robbed, raped and murdered, and have their children molested, because their government will not enforce its own laws?
Is this not an indictment of democracy itself? What dictatorial regime would put up with this?
The Republican Party claims to be a conservative party. But what kind of conservative is it who, to cut a few costs or make a few bucks, will turn his family's home into a neighborhood flop house?
In a recent poll, 40 percent of Mexicans " 40 million people said they would like to come to the United States, and 20 percent expressed a willingness to break in. Time to cut the babble about how NAFTA is going to solve the problem. This is a national emergency.
Twice, Bush has taken an oath to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." Article IV, Section 4 of that Constitution reads," The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion."
Well, we are being invaded, and the president of the United States is not doing his duty to protect the states against that invasion.
Some courageous Republican, to get the attention of this White House, should drop into the hopper a bill of impeachment, charging Bush with a conscious refusal to uphold his oath and defend the states of the Union against "invasion."
It may be the only way left to get his attention, before the border vanishes and our beloved country dissolves into MexAmerica, what T.R. called a "polyglot boarding house for the world."
Buchanan is such a baffoon. I can't beleive he seriously thinks that securing our borders and homeland security are important. W rules!
He has a point. Blaming Clinton, and Bush 1, and Reagan for not tightening up the borders is correct, but W is the President at this time, has been for 5 years, 4 years since 9/11, and he has refused to take action.
Bush has a cozy relationship with Fox. He also has no intention on protecting our borders. Can you explain why?
Impeachment is obviously extreme, but this doesn't change the fact that Bush's feet should be held to the fire on illegal immigration. We know the Dims won't do anything about it. The only hope is for W to show some backbone on this situation.
If I recall correctly, there was a guest worker program during Ike's era.
Makes some points but impeachment is not one.
Not an excuse. We expected Clinton to do nothing because of his NAFTA policy, political correctness and building another minority base for the dems through liberal issuance of social programs.
Bush is AWOL on the border problem. Period.
OK, who stole Pat's meds?
Please send them back, and quickly.
I agree that immigration needs to be addressed BIG TIME, but Pat Buchanan is NOT correct about impeachment.
but Pat Buchanan is not the one to lead the charge.
Thank you. My sentiments exactly.
Pat Buchanan criticized Clinton regularly on the immigration and trade isues, and yes he even called for Clinton's impeachment (though over Monica and not immigration).
What did Bush say today at his town hall meeting about immigration?
Buchanan is correct here. Impeachment is the proper recourse where the President blatantly, repeatedly, and with contempt, refuses the basic duties of his office.
Jorge is one terrorist attack away from someone here illegally from impeachment. Its an absolute disgrace.
I wish tancredo would put an amendment on a bill for a wall on the whole southern border, not one dem would vote for it.
Hillary Clinton is weak on illegal immigration, and the two dem governors are as well, they all oppose a fence on the border. Hillary voted against more border agents and more troops and wants our taxpayer money to pay for illegals to go to college. Hillary loves anchor babies getting affirmative action.
Hillary years ago triangulated to Sean Hannity saying she is tough on the borders but yet votes the opposite way and somehow she is great on the borders.
Earth to Pat do some research on the arizona governor's vetoes, richardson and napalitano's stands on the fence and hillary's terrible voting record on the borders.
Every time Hillary votes on the borders she votes with La Raza, she even went to their convention and said illegals should get our taxpayer money to go to college.
Pat bash Bush all you want but you are an idiot to be praising Hillary and the two fake dem governors and using the La Raza comparison when Hillary is the one that sucked up to them.
What did Bush say today at his town hall meeting about immigration?
Oh boy, can't wait to here the latest b.s. from Fox's Excecutive water carrier.
Not according to Old Pat! BARF!
Pat needs to retire because he is very lazy. Doesn't Pat know that Hillary voted for amnesty for all illegal farm workers in the ag bill.
Pat it is one thing to bash bush but when you start lying to promote that marxist Hillary you get discredited.
Buchanan is a buffoon. Anyone who thinks Teddy Roosevelt personally lead the troops anywhere when he was president has missed his medication a few too many times.
Buchanan is rarely correct, and when he is, it is purely an accident. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
I have heard many ways to deal with this Illgal invasion many are humerious but most likly will not happen. The Democraps would like to stampede the Repubs into action so they could be called raciest and use the Illagal's vote against them. So how to stop them and better yet how to have them return home. It is simple these people seem to must have Beer to survive so just turn off the tap so to speak and they will be gone. Note this was done in Oklahama with the 3.2 beer because they had a proplem with a minority they could not afford to let drink.
If Bush doesn't do something drastic soon and if terrorists slip through the southern border (why wouldn't they come this way?) and pull of a major attack then you might hear quite a few calls for impeachment.
How about a compromise? Let's just give them California and Oregon. Would make things a heck of a lot better for us! :-)
President Bush's missteps on immigration don't rise to the level of impeachment. Anyone who suggests otherwise is foolish. Bush will suffer no fallout over his immigration decision. Instead, it will be Republican members of the Congress and Senate.
When I think of Pat I think, intelligent imbecile.
Don't forget who dreamed up NAFTA in the first place.
Somebody really needs to slip some growth hormone into those bottles of water.
Actually illegal immigration is way up since GWBush took office in 2000. The real invasion and real surge in illegal numbers came during the GWBush years. Bush sat on his hands. He did as little as a president AlGore would have.
Great read. Thanks for posting !!
It is not fair for Pat to blame Bush for the WHOLE problem, but I don't think that is what he is doing here. He is (rightly) blaming the POTUS not for doing nothing, but ofr encouraging more illegals to come here for his (Bush's) business interests ie: supporters.
In other words, Profits over security, Business over Pissed off American citizenry.
Bayourod, Dane and their ilk should be proud.
While that is sad, I know of plenty of small historic towns in Kentucky that are nothing but ghettos now . . . and they are occupied with native Kentuckians.
Just maybe Pat thought that the REPUBLICAN Congress would have rid us of Bubba for many other felonies. We see how elites are handled in the "Two-Party Cartel".
This seems to be what Pat himself is saying in his article.
You are welcome. :-)
LMAO @ these idiots. How can they impeach Bush when they constantly say Bush is a idiot, Cheney is in charge, for cripes sake, impeach Cheney you lunatics, get your stories straight! Poor lefty lunatics, spewing nonsense, how much energy do these morons waste on a daily basis spewing garbage - shaking head, rolling eyes!
Ditto to that one
you are on a buchanan thread, and shoot the messenger is the standard response, regardless of what he is saying, unfortunately.
Welcome to the new FR.
"The only hope is for W to show some backbone on this situation."
He IS showing backbone, by standing up for what he believes in despite widespread popular support for the opposite.
There's lots of blame to go around.
Bush has been part of the problem, not part of the solution.
Most of the Senate has been a large part of the problem for a long time.
Buchanan is an idiot for resorting to this kind of rhetoric.
Illegal immigration is a serious issue, and to solve it we need to address it with serious plans, not a bunch of political hyperbole.
Remember what the Minute Men were called?
