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."
Pat has the hots for Huffington. This is his woo.....
Do you know who he was meeting with at the time he called the Minutemen vigilantes? He was definitely being the politician with other countries' presidents, as he was busy undoing our sovereignty.
Pat Buchanan once again simultaneously stating the facts and offending.
"Yet even Pat suggests this is the fault of this President? Are all of you almost as sick of him being blamed for everything as I am?"
I am sick of people apologising for Bush's negligence of the subject. During the Clinton era, this board was full of people howling about illegal immigration. Now we've had 5 years of a Republican President and Congress... and nothing has been done!!! Surely, in this day and age of terror, securing our own borders needs to be a top priority.
Death threats to any president will get your butt banned.
I would rather he lie about affairs and close the border, then be honest and keep the things wide open.
What he is doing is not bringing dignity to the office.
No it's not. It's both a high crime AND treason. I'd say it's why impeachment exists.
90% of Freepers wouldn't know an actual conservative if one walked up and grabbed them by the nuts.
99.75% of Americans don't give a damn about Pat Buchanan and don't care where he stands on any issue.
The vileness of this little man will never end.
Your obsessive fixation on Pat Buchanan will probably never end.
"Are you saying Bush supports open borders?"
IF we judge him by his actions, then absolutely I say that.
Do you disagree?
also, at the time, the alternative was Gore. It wasn't a hard choice for me, despite all that is said above.
I agree with Buchanan on this issue. If GW Bush can't tighten up the borders to stop ILLEGAL immigration, especially after 9/11, then I feel that I have wasted my vote twice..........
I'd support my representative if he decided to vote for an impeachment. Bush is a traitor and has sold us out to globalists. He's not a conservative, if anything, he's a Bonesman.
I am not apologizing for Bush. I am disgusted by the remarks of Pat and others. I am a native Californian, and I know about illegals okay. If I had my way, the borders would have been closed on Sept 11, 2001, but that is most likely not even possible. The point is, no one has ever done anything, and were they impeached?
Btw, Pat isn't calling for impeachment of PresBush, its a political tongue-in-cheek rhetorical jab. Fact remains. The GOP Congress and this President have to stop ignoring the people.
Frankly, I think the President isn't interested in solving this problem. He wants a majority of Hispanic's to vote Republican, while keeping the GOP's business support as strong as ever. Votes and cheap labor.
Buchanan was criticizing Clinton too.
When it comes to immigration Pat is an equal opportunity criticizer.
Pat lost it long ago. He left the Republican party and it was a very good thing for republicans.
He was in bed with the commies during his reform party run and apparently he still is.
Sounds good to me.
I will never vote for another democrat as long as I live. Never. I promise you they will do nothing about the border either as they view the illegals as potential (sure thing) votes. Hillary is pretending to be concerned, because she knows we are. I agree (again) that no one should be allowed in here anymore.
You mean open borders republicans?
Voting for Bush hasn't been much better than voting for a democrat.
Lou Dobbs had a representative from Virginia on who suggested Va. might be next to declare a state of emergency. He was ridiculed by some Latino guest who questioned why Virginia since it was nowhere near the border. The rep. reminded him that illegals are able to walk and once they cross the border they're able to go wherever the road leads them and many are heading East.
"Are you saying Bush supports open borders?"
Has he shown anything else?
You're absolutely correct! There is no excuse now. W is failing to act.
"In other words, Profits over security, Business over Pissed off American citizenry."
It's not just profits. Illegals are being used to mask the devaulation of the dollar by free spending/borrowing/printing politicians. Stopping illegals means exposing the true value of the dollar on their watch which would slow down their gravy train. Both parties are guilty.
Maybe the same person who stole Bush's cojones?
If a Republican doesn't "throw a bill of impeachment into the hopper," I hope a Democrat does.
I hate to say it folks, but Buchanan is right on the money. Just because Reagan, Bush I and then Clinton did nothing about is is no reason to give GW a pass on it. We are dealing with the here and now. It is happening on HIS watch as we speak so it is his responsibility to stop this illegal invasion. Unless we hold our elected officials accountable, they will continue to pander to radical groups like La Raza (the race). I have been thinking about creating a website called www.illegalaliencrimes.com to compile facts about how Americans are victimized by people who have no dam business being in this country but it would be a full time job compiling and keeping up with all of the data. I truly beleive that if Americans were aware of how bad we are being victimized by illegals and exactly how much money it was costing each US taxpayer, then they would demand that troops be stationed on our borders.
Pat, of course, is right. We need to stop the illegal immigration. And the American people agree. 85% of the country is in favor of stopping ILLEGAL immigration.
Funny how many "open borders" types are on FR. When did it become conservative to support foriegn invasion and contempt for the rule of law?
I'll have to mull over that one, thank you.
Do you have any thoughts on WHAT Pat wrote?
Or are you just a Pat Hater who wants to vent?
Sorry, have seen the Pacific Coast? Its beautiful.
Lets just give them LA/SF/NYC and New England.
Kinda like us in the 19th century, huh? :-)
Here in the Triangle, the idiots are killing the home owners to support all the illegals. The schools are flooded so they raised our property rates to pay for all the English as a Second Language Schools.
He wants us to become the North American Community just like the CFR has told him to do. He doesen't care a whit about national soverignty, he wants open borders to facilitate trade with our latin american neighbors so we can become the equivalent of the EU.
"Sorry, have seen the Pacific Coast? Its beautiful.
Lets just give them LA/SF/NYC and New England."
I say we give them nothing but a free ride back to Mexico!
Giving them our socialist areas will only insure that those areas remain socialist (and corrupt).
Pat's demagoguery has the same odor as New Orleans about now.
