President George W. Bush

The White House

Washington, DC


Subject: A charge of treason against the President of the United States


Dear President Bush:


In your oath of office, you swore to defend the Constitution of the United States.  Article I, Section 8, states, “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions.”  Article IV, Section 4, states, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.”  The Constitution is very explicit: it is your sworn duty to protect the country from invasion.


According to a recent CNN television program, (Immigrant Nation, Divided Country) there are now an estimated 7-20 million illegal aliens in the United States.  The situation is now totally out of control.  Police in Atlanta, Georgia, for example, are forbidden to arrest illegal aliens, on the grounds that local facilities can’t handle them.  On the CNN program, Asa Hutchinson, Under Secretary for Border and Transportation Security of the Department of Homeland Security, was asked why the government was not deporting all illegal aliens.  His response, incredible as it may seem, was that it did not seem humane to deport a family whose two children were US citizens (under the US policy of granting birthright citizenship to all babies born on US soil, regardless of circumstances).


The CNN program interviewed employers who spoke highly of their illegal-alien employees.  A few years ago, employers who hired illegal aliens were subject to stiff penalties.  Today, they flaunt violation of the law with impunity, on national television.  No hidden cameras needed for this documentary.

All over the country, the federal, state, and local governments are turning a blind eye to illegal immigration.  The country is no longer enforcing its laws with respect to illegal immigration.  When an illegal alien is discovered by the police, they do nothing about it.  In fact, parts of our government are busily working to extend citizenship to illegal aliens, and state and local governments are providing free social services to them.


Mr. Bush, why do you continue to let illegal aliens enter the United States?  Why do you continue to allow tens of millions of them to remain here?  Why is the US government continuing to provide free social services to many of them?  Why are you doing nothing?  Why do you not act?  If aiding and abetting of foreign invaders is not treason, what is?


Our borders are not secure – from illegal aliens or anyone else. If you cannot keep tens of millions of illegal aliens out of our country, how can you hope to keep out small bands of terrorists?  Why do you refuse to fight the war on terrorism, by continuing to leave our borders vulnerable to illegal entry, and by rewarding illegal aliens for their criminal intrusion?


You have had four years as President to consider this problem, and yet you continue to aid and abet the invaders, rather than expel them.  You have appointed men such as Asa Hutchinson, who does not see that illegal aliens should be deported.  By your actions, are you not guilty of willful, premeditated treason?  Have you taken an oath of allegiance to the plutocracy that takes precedence over your oath as President?


Your predecessor, President Ronald Reagan, also faced an alien invasion.  His response was to sponsor a general amnesty that granted US citizenship to millions of illegal aliens – criminal invaders.  Recently, you proclaimed your intention to legalize the current invasion by means of a “guest-worker” program.  Simply declaring invaders to be citizens or “guest workers” is not what the Constitution intended by the phrases “repel invasion” and “protect from invasion.”  It intends that you repel the invasion, not harbor the invaders, provide social services to them, and grant them amnesty, citizenship, or work permits.


The path that President Ronald Reagan took, and that you are now taking, is leading the United States down a path to balkanization and civil war.  It is your duty to defend the country against invasion.  You, sir, and other officials of your government, are in gross dereliction of duty.  Please reflect on the oath that you have taken, and the invasion that is taking place, and reconsider your position.


It is not too late to turn back.  All it takes to repel this alien invasion is will.  If you wish, I will agree to serve as your new Director of Homeland Security, now that Mr. Tom Ridge has tendered his resignation.  My résumé is posted at .
