INS SNAFU PROVES AGAIN THAT BIG GOVERNMENT CANNOT WORK ECONOMICALLY OR 
                              EFFICIENTLY

  (Mr. DUNCAN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. DUNCAN. Mr. Speaker, the Immigration and Naturalization Service 
has had a 250 percent increase in funding over the last 8 years, about 
10 times the rate of inflation over that period. Now they are trying to 
blame the snafu over granting student visas to two dead hijackers over 
6 months after the September 11 attacks to an antiquated paper system. 
What a flimsy excuse.
  In other words, even with a 250 percent increase in funding, they are 
basically saying, ``If we had had even more money, we would have done 
better.'' The problem is not money, Mr. Speaker, it is a civil service 
system that does nothing for good, dedicated employees, but protects 
lazy or incompetent ones.
  Also, in the private sector, the pressure is always on to do more and 
to do better and to do more with less. These pressures are just not 
there in the Federal bureaucracy, and it becomes more apparent with 
each passing year that big government cannot do anything in an 
economical or efficient way.
