the population of these states;
for that purpose obstructing the laws
for naturalization of foreigners;
refusing to pass others
to encourage their migration hither,
and raising the conditions
of new appropriations of lands.
He has obstructed the administration of justice,
by refusing his assent to laws
for establishing judiciary powers.
He has made judges dependent
on his will alone,
for the tenure of their offices,
and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of new offices,
and sent hither swarms of officers
to harass our people,
and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace,
standing armies without the consent of our legislature.
He has affected to render the military
independent of and superior to civil power.
