Robert Huntington Adams, a senator from Mississippi, argues in favor of a bill to remove Indians of the Southeast to lands west of the Mississippi River. The bill, proposed and supported by President Andrew Jackson, would guarantee land in the West if the Indians choose to relinquishment their homelands in the Southeast as well as compensation for property improvements and subsistence. Adams presents a lengthy argument in support of the bill and cites the Georgia Compact of 1802 as well as the President's message in favor of the bill. Adams is in agreement with the President that Indian nations cannot exist within state boundaries as separate and distinct political entities. Adams also outlines the history of European dealings with the Indians of North America, claiming the right of discovery and conquest over First Nations. He admits that the Indians were robbed of their land through force and fraud but accepts this as irrevocable history. Adams disagrees with opponents who contend that this bill violates treaties, saying that the federal government does not have the right to negotiate treaties with Indians residing within states. This leads to a lengthy argument based upon what he sees as the rights of the states to legislate over all persons within their boundaries, despite the terms of the Constitution, federal legislation or rulings. (The Indian Removal Act was passed in May 1830 and signed into law by President Jackson.)
