Document drop: Another Obama ICE memo sabotages homeland security

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 26, 2012 10:39 AM

Since Day One of the Obama administration, I’ve shed light on the White House illegal alien amnesty-by-fiat strategy. I’ve obtained yet another memo, unleashed during the holiday season, that is enraging rank-and-file DHS officers.

I shared an excerpt of an e-mail I received from Joe Cascarelli of Westcliffe, CO, in my syndicated column today (here), which is adapted from my recent blog post on things parents can do post-Newtown without relying on government. Cascarelli describes a community organizing effort that every liberty-loving parent can get behind. I’m reprinting more […]

What the Looming Port Strike Is Really About

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 21, 2012 11:15 AM

As I’ve been reporting over the last year (see full archive links below), the Big Labor and Occupy goons have long been agitating to shut down the nation’s ports.
