Impeach Bush—And/Or Abolish The EOIR?
On August 29, syndicated columnist
Patrick J. Buchanan made a courageous call for
President Bush`s impeachment.
“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 George W. Bush
with a conscious refusal to uphold his oath and defend
the states of the Union against `invasion.`”

WorldNetDaily later reported that immigration reform
Congressman Tom Tancredo would not be taking
Buchanan up on his impeachment challenge anytime soon.
Tancredo was quoted as saying he would not pursue
impeachment because that “his immigration reform bill
3333] will do what is necessary to stem the flow
of illegal aliens into the U.S.” [Tancredo

H.R. 3333 does absolutely nothing to break the
immigration litigation log-jam and deport aliens through
In fact, H.R. 3333 goes in exactly the opposite
direction—by hiring more government attorneys to
appear in EOIR Immigration Court hearings. [Section

too many lawyers
involved in alien deportation already—not too few.

This is what really happens: Most arrested aliens are

Federal Circuit Courts of Appeal, and even (on
occasions) before the U.S. Supreme Court.
The process of deporting illegal aliens and criminal
aliens from the United States is far from being a system
Like just about everything else in America these days,
it has been condemned to slow death by lawyers and
federal judges—rigged in favor of
relief from removal through endless federal
Under the current state of the
Immigration and Nationality Act, the
behind-closed-doors deportation proceedings of the
federal immigration bureaucracy are in reality more like
“get to stay” proceedings.
And that`s exactly what the
Treason Lobby doesn`t want you to know.
The federal immigration litigation bureaucracy is the
Treason Lobby`s “ace in the hole” in these times
of citizen outrage over the flood tide of illegal
And no matter how loudly American citizens scream over
“border enforcement,” the process for actually
removing illegal aliens and criminal aliens has so far
That`s why landmark citizen initiatives like Proposition
187, Proposition 200 and the current

to it that the aliens arrested for immigration
violations are actually deported!”
When was the last time you`ve seen any effort in
Congress to streamline the process of deporting
aliens—in even the best immigration enforcement bills
currently in Congress?
Answer: the last time was in 1996, when Congress granted
expedited removal authority…which
still has yet to be implemented as written.
Want to make a difference for immigration law
Then realize that abolishing the current
perpetual litigation system in favor of
summary removal will do more to remove illegal
aliens and criminal alien residents from our shores than
America has ever seen.
Immigration law enforcement desperately needs
Congress to fire a laser-guided missile of legislation
down the main air-conditioning vent of the EOIR and the
federal immigration bureaucracy.
Impeachment or no, America still waits for that
courageous Congressman to drop a
summary removal bill into the hopper.
What about it, Mr. Tancredo?
