Republican calls president 'derelict' in duty: 'This is not Ellis Island, this is an invasion'
Author Pat Buchanan says President Bush should be impeached for failing to stop the invasion of illegal aliens across the U.S. border with Mexico.
"I think he's committed an impeachable offense in refusing to enforce the immigration laws and in failing to uphold the Constitution by defending the states against this invasion," Buchanan told radio talk-show host Curt Smith this weekend on National Public Radio stations in upstate New York.
"When you have 6 million people apprehended on the border and several million got in on your watch and you have the ability to stop it I think you're derelict in your duty," he said. "And if the president says 'I can't do it,' you need a new president who will do it."
"This is not Ellis Island," said Buchanan. "This is an invasion."
Buchanan, who is a WND columnist, is the author of the best-selling book, "State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America." The book paints a dim portrait of America's future: "The children born in 2006 will witness in their lifetimes the death of the West."
"As Rome passed away, so, the West is passing away, from the same causes and in much the same way. What the Danube and Rhine were to Rome, the Rio Grande and Mediterranean are to America and Europe, the frontiers of a civilization no longer defended."
Buchanan follows Rep. Tom Tancredo's warning shot, "In Mortal Danger," with some sobering statistics and new ways to consider the crisis. He states:
One in every twelve people breaking into America has a criminal record.
By 2050, there will be 100 million Hispanics
concentrated in the U.S. Southwest.
Between 10 and 20 percent of all Mexicans, Central Americans and people of the Caribbean have already moved to the United States.
Every month, the U.S. Border Patrol apprehends more illegal aliens breaking into our country, 150,000, than the number of troops we have in Iraq.
"Concerned about his legacy, George W. Bush may yet live to see his name entered into the history of his country as the president who lost the American Southwest that James K. Polk won for the United States," Buchanan writes.
In addition to charging the Mexican government with plotting territorial reconquest, the former presidential candidate also says elites in Mexico and the U.S. are conspiring to erase America's borders and merge the United States and Mexico into a "North American Union."
To avert disaster, Buchanan's recipe includes:
A deportation program, beginning with all illegal aliens convicted of felonies and every gang member not a U.S. citizen.
A 10-year limit on legal immigration to between 150,000 and 250,000.
Building a security fence along the 2,000-mile border.
Buchanan points out that the illegal alien population of the U.S. today exceeds the total number of Irish, Jewish and British immigrants who ever came to the U.S.
He disputes those who contend illegal immigration has economic benefits for the U.S., saying instead the trend represents a massive drain on the economy.
No Pat, now go back and play looney tunes with Imus and Bernard.
I thought he wanted to impeach him for the "NAFTA Superhighway".
I guess tomorrow he'll want to impeach Bush for supporting Israel.
what's this guy smokin'?
Wasn't this same or very similiar article posted about a week ago?
I expect this thread will be equally as bad for Buchanan....
Not that he cares, he has his nutzos already buying his book in droves. He's paid so anything else is just gravy....
"Building a security fence along the 2,000-mile border."
My suggestion is that he get his a** out from under the comfort of his typewriter and work with the Minutemen.
Geez, Pat, haven't you figured out that you are totally irrelevant?
You gotta read the keywords. LOL!
Go away Pat. Shoo Fly. Run for President on the Asshat Platform.
"Hello. My name is Pat Buchanan and I'm going to ride the immigration bandwagon until my training wheels fall off!"
Ah yes, more from the nazi lover. The only people Pat never wants deported are nazi's who snuck into this country after WW II.
Pat's an expert 'cause he's been patrolling the border with his buddy, Ross Perot, in Ross's black helicopter.
And right on cue, Pat once again proves that he doesn't have a kl00 when it's time to sit down and STFU.
Pooooooooor pat. The Preparation-H must be shrinking things...and constricting his head.
Have you noticed that the World Nut Daily "articles" are really nothing more than gratuitous book pimping.
And to think I donated $25 to Pat's presidential bid in 1996. Is there any way I can get my money back?
Iran already has a president...and even with all the articles he writes defending the Islamic extremist enemies of America, I doubt they'd vote for him either.
pat is dumb

I think he'd rather be Führer.
Back to the Bund meeting with you.
I agree with you. There are so many other people, like certain supreme court justices that need to be impeached first.
Besides our congress can barely keep from passing benefits for illegals, much less impeach the pres over them.
I agree with Pat on the need for a deportation program. But I would only deport criminals after serving their sentences. Otherwise, you send the message to illegals that the only punishment for committing crime is to be sent home.
I think World Nut Daily is just ticked off because Amazon discounted the crap out of pat's last book ON THE DAY IT WAS RELEASED and undercut the profit they had planned on making by selling their six copies of his book.
Oh I'm pretty worried about what some Buchanan Moonbat and his bad attempt at poetry say....
They forgot to cue up pat's theme song with this thread, "Springtime for Hitler".
It would never happen anyway. We have a congress that is 100% compliant with Bush's lack of immigration enforcement. We will have to impeach them at the polls.
and did you notice that World Nut Daily also got pat buchanan mini-me, tom tancredo, into the booking pimping article.
Pitchfork or meat thermometer, it doesn't make any difference...pat's done.
" But I would only deport criminals after serving their sentences. Otherwise, you send the message to illegals that the only punishment for committing crime is to be sent home. "
You have a point but i'd still rather ship them out (provided we secure the border). The cost of housing all these illegal alien criminals is tremendous.
Pages from Mein Kampf.
They do seem to cater to a certain type of crowd.
Who the H*** is Pat Buchanan and who the H*** gives a flying **** about him? He is totally irrelevant in today's world.
I cannot stand Patsy as much as the next guy, AND, I do not think Dubya should be impeached, but HE's dead wrong on the illegal immigration issue and Patsy's right.
"It would never happen anyway. We have a congress that is 100% compliant with Bush's lack of immigration enforcement. We will have to impeach them at the polls."
The House isn't that bad. The Senate is the problem.
Regardless of what one may or may not think of Buchanan, what he's actually saying makes sense to me and is needed. Perhaps if these very same words were spoken by someone else people would rrespond differently (shrug).
President of what.....CUBA?
I predict he will enter and win the N.H. primary but it will be downhill for him from thereon.
He's one of the Beltway's philosopher and a good;
anti[-abortion Catholic..Why isn't he talking about
the Muslims contract on the Pope? He is just a
big Bush basher as he knows his half-a&& opinion is
good for the MSP....Hardball,softball and no balls...
all love Pat as he can be manipul;ated to their view
of the political situation...Bush-Impeached? The ones
who love this are the Doves...nd Terrorists..as they
Know Bush is serious about getting them...Buchanan and
his ilk would let the country go down the tubes...Jake
