Bloody consequences of open borders: The kidnapping and murder of Zina Linnik

We need to stop the criminal alien revolving door.

The brutal consequences of catch and release

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 5, 2007 02:51 PM

A suspected illegal alien rapist is let go. The feds say they’ll deal with him “later.” Meantime, he is accused of raping again. And the cycle continues…

A real criminal injustice

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 8, 2007 10:30 PM

***Bumped with video update: Watch me get smeared by Geraldo Rivera. I wear it as a badge of pride. Pay attention to his answer about deporting criminal aliens. John Lennon?!?!*** I’ll be on The O’Reilly Factor tonight for a quick “Week in Review” segment. Tune in at 8pm Eastern. The topics were immigration and, yes, […]

Deport the criminals first

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 31, 2007 04:10 PM

Patterico has launched a series of case studies that your members of Congress should hear about: “Deport the criminals first.” Part One is here. Part Two is here. Guess he’s just another member of the “Foaming at The Mouth” mob. Someone should make a T-shirt.

Attention, Michael Chertoff: Get to the bottom of this screw-up

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 23, 2007 09:01 PM

This is Manuel Flores. He is an illegal alien fugitive from the law. He is accused of raping and sodomizing his girlfriend’s nine-year-old daughter. Nine-year-old daughter. Manuel Flores is free, reportedly headed back to Mexico, because federal immigration officials screwed up, according to a local Denver report. I linked to this story earlier today, but […]

Catch-and-release still rules

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 21, 2007 10:08 PM

Yeah, yeah, DHS and the White House say they’ve ended catch-and-release policies for illegal aliens. Here’s a reality check from a West Virginia law enforcement official: It is not the number of illegal immigrants that concerns Burgoyne and Bise as much as it is the way the federal government treats them. In each of the […]

A slap on the wrist

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 30, 2007 09:42 AM

Jerry Seper at the WashTimes reports that two execs of the Golden State Fence Company–hired by the U.S. government to help build a fence along the Southwest border to curb the flow of illegal aliens into the United States–have been sentenced on charges of hiring illegals for the job. The judge in the case, and […]

Shocker: If you release lawbreakers, it’s hard to find them again!

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 26, 2007 03:33 PM

I’ve reported on the absconder problem extensively in Invasion and in my columns. This is nothing new: Teams assigned to make sure foreigners ordered out of the United States actually leave have a backlog of more than 600,000 cases and can’t accurately account for the fugitives’ whereabouts, the government reported Monday. The report by the […]

THE JIHADI SNIPERS REVISITED

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 25, 2006 01:15 AM

For most people, the Beltway-area sniper case is a distant memory. Over and done. But in Montgomery County, Md., the pain and suffering caused by convicted killing spree murderers Lee Malvo and John Muhammad is as fresh and raw as it was three years ago when the pair terrorized the area–leaving 10 dead and three […]

SAME OLD, SAME OLD

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 15, 2006 06:09 PM

11pm EDT update: Video highlights of tonight’s O’Reilly Factor in which I try to make O’Reilly see the light here. 1030pm EDT update: The only good thing about watching the speech was getting to watch it in the Fox News green room with Colorado GOP Rep. Tom Tancredo, a stalwart immigration enforcement advocate. It was […]

WHERE’S THE COMPASSION?

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2006 12:55 PM

The open-borders lobby has been phenomenally successful at getting the Beltway elite in both parties and in the media to embrace its blanket overgeneralizations and platitudes about the illegal alien population. “They just come here to work.” “They’re all Americans, too.” “Illegals aren’t criminals.” And so on. Those who impertinently challenge such characterizations in an […]

The game of catch-and-release

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 20, 2006 11:27 PM

See, I told you so. This morning I told you that the immigration raid dog-and-pony show would result in most of the illegal aliens arrested being released. The New York Times reports in tomorrow’ edition (hat tip Thomas Galvin): The arrests took place just days before the Senate reconvenes with immigration laws on its agenda. […]

Politically-timed immigration raids

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 20, 2006 09:05 AM

I speak regularly with dedicated men and women who work for the Department of Homeland Security, and especially agents from across the country who work for the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. I can tell you based on my reporting over the last five years that the Bush administration’s belated efforts to look tough […]

HOUSE REPUBLICANS SEND A MESSAGE

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 8, 2006 10:00 PM

This is a wake-up call to the White House. In an election-year repudiation of President Bush, a House panel dominated by Republicans voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to block a Dubai-owned firm from taking control of some U.S port operations. By 62-2, the Appropriations Committee voted to bar DP World, run by the government of Dubai in […]

BANNED IN THE UAE, PART III

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 28, 2006 07:23 AM

The parent company of Dubai Ports World participates in the Arab boycott against Israel, The Jerusalem Post reports in an exclusive today (hat tip Thomas Rosser): “Yes, of course the boycott is still in place and is still enforced,” Muhammad Rashid a-Din, a staff member of the Dubai Customs Department’s Office for the Boycott of […]

BORDER SECURITY: ONE STEP FORWARD…

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 16, 2005 10:59 PM

A serious, pro-enforcement measure on border security and immigration control has just passed the House. Three years after I published Invasion, many of the policy recommendations included in the book have been embraced: The House acted Friday to stem the tide of illegal immigration by taking steps to tighten border controls and stop unlawful immigrants […]

OPEN BORDERS, DEAD COPS

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 14, 2005 04:36 PM

More bloody consequences of lax immigration enforcement…from Dallas, Tx., via the Dallas Morning News: Marta Cruz had told police that her ex-boyfriend had been threatening her for weeks. But as he emptied his handgun in an act of rage early Sunday, police say, his last bullet found another victim. Dallas police Officer Brian Jackson died […]

KATRINA: CAN LAW & ORDER BE RESTORED?

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 31, 2005 10:21 PM

***scroll down for 9/1 updates…gun defenses tracked…*** The mayor of New Orleans has declared martial law, reports the WWL blog. I’ve covered the uncertainties surrounding this question several times over the past few days. Mike Wiser at Brendan Loy’s blog writes: We’ve had conflicting reports about martial law over the past few days, with some […]

REPUBLICANS FOR OPEN BORDERS

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 22, 2004 07:44 AM

^&*$%#@$%^#! Sorry for the spleen-venting so early in the morning, but read this from the AP, headlined “Bush wants intelligence bill free of immigration provisions:” The White House yesterday asked Congress to reject an attempt in the House to place illegal-immigration measures in an intelligence reform bill. The Bush administration wants “an effective bill that […]

The elephant in the room, unleashed

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 13, 2004 10:11 PM

9:45ish: Finally, finally! Bob Schieffer asks about illegal immigration…but both candidates bomb. Bush’s perfunctory reference to how he has sprinkled a few more Border Patrol agents across the southern border glosses over the horrendous policies instituted under his Department of Homeland Security that have resulted in undermining those agents. As I noted recently: When a […]

THE HEAD-CHOPPERS MEET THE HAND-CHOPPERS

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 28, 2004 09:45 PM

The Washington Times reports on an alleged meeting between suspected al Qaeda operative Adnan Shukrijumah and the savage El Salvador-based gang, Mara Salvatrucha: A top al Qaeda lieutenant has met with leaders of a violent Salvadoran criminal gang with roots in Mexico and the United States — including a stronghold in the Washington area — […]

Was one of the NYC bomb plotters an illegal alien?

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 29, 2004 08:56 AM

You’ve heard about the two men who were busted for allegedly plotting to bomb the Herald Square subway station. You may not have heard that one of the men, Shahawar Matin Siraj, a 22-year-old Pakistani national living in Jackson Heights, New York, had run into problems with immigration authorities. According to this article, Siraj was […]

Hasta la vista

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 21, 2004 02:22 AM

My latest syndicated column is up: The dangerous game of catch-and-release. Following up on a post I wrote last week, I interviewed New Ipswich, New Hampshire, police chief Garrett Chamberlain, who blew the whistle on federal immigration authorities when they refused to take ten admitted illegal aliens into custody. Officials told Chamberlain to let the […]

HOMELAND INSECURITY FILES

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 16, 2004 10:44 PM

Sens. Judd Gregg and John Sununu of New Hampshire have discovered the feds’ old catch-and-release game…not with fish, but with illegal aliens. The Union Leader reports: [Gregg and Sununu] want to know why federal immigration officials decided not to step in when New Ipswich police stopped a van carrying nine illegal aliens this week. New […]
