The truth about deportation

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 18, 2011 10:58 AM

Nine years ago, I published Invasion and have since devoted extensive column, blog, and broadcast space to informing readers about America’s deportation abyss. Most of the politicians in Washington who speak about “comprehensive immigration reform” are still abjectly ignorant about the ins, outs, loopholes, and lax enforcement that characterize our chaotic, security-undermining deportation policies. It’s […]

Dare to DREAM: Dick Durbin Says Maybe Someday an Illegal Alien Will Be Elected President

By Doug Powers  •  June 29, 2011 10:18 PM

**Written by Doug Powers When Illinois Senator Dick Durbin looks at a crowd of Tea Partying American citizens, he sees extremists and a bunch of fringe wackos who don’t speak for America. When he looks at a roomful of illegal aliens he sees the future of America, and maybe even the next US president: (CNSNews.com) […]

“Undocumented” folly: A liberal reporter’s illegal alien sob story

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 24, 2011 10:18 AM

The DREAM Act mob is on the march again — and this time they have a prominent left-wing journalist leading the charge. My syndicated column below spotlights the serial law-breaking of former Washington Post reporter Jose Antonio Vargas, who is now an illegal alien activist clamoring for amnesty with the backing of the radical Tides […]

Document drop: ICE memos open another door to illegal alien amnesty-by-fiat

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 22, 2011 10:22 AM

We knew it was coming. I’ve warned for years about illegal alien amnesty by executive fiat and the backdoor sabotage of immigration enforcement by this administration — and every one preceding it over the last two decades. I’ve also reported on how Congress issues individual deportation waivers to illegal aliens. And I’ve spotlighted the deadly […]

A procedural note about H.R. 5281 and the DREAM Act

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 20, 2010 12:57 PM

There is a bit of confusion on the Internet that needs to be cleared up about the Democrats’ plans for the DREAM Act. A number of readers have pointed to a weekend post at FreeRepublic.com warning that the DREAM Act is “hidden” in another bill, H.R. 5281. Senate staff explained to me today that DREAM […]

A dream denied: Border Patrol agent Brian Terry killed in Arizona; Update: Several BP agents involved in gun battle

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 15, 2010 12:21 PM

More horrible news from the southern border. One of the officers who put his life on the line to protect our security and sovereignty has been shot and killed. Four suspects are in custody. USA Today reports: A Border Patrol agent was shot and killed Tuesday night near Rio Rico after encountering several suspects, federal […]

Reid warns: We’ll stretch this lame-duck out until Jan. 5 if we have to; Update: Omnibus-a-palooza!

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 14, 2010 02:36 PM

Scroll for updates…and contemplate this astounding fact: “For the first time in the history of the modern budget process, this Congress failed to even vote on a budget for next year.” Whatever it takes, eh, Dingy Harry? The big buzz in Washington this afternoon is over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s warning to colleagues that […]

Video: UCLA open-borders prof/SEIU lawyer urges “DREAM”-ers to replace those “old white guys”

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 14, 2010 12:51 PM

I’ve been exposing the radical ethnic tribalism that infuses the illegal alien student DREAM Act movement for years (see here for my most recent refresher course). Anyone who has been to a college campus and interacted with these narcissistic multi-culti activists knows that the American flag-waving act is a cynical crock of you-know-what. Fresh from […]

Operation Buck Up: Stop the DREAM Act illegal alien student bailout

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 13, 2010 09:31 AM

The obituary for the DREAM Act illegal alien student bailout is premature. You know this because I’ve been writing about the ceaseless push to pass this brazen shamnesty plan for years. The Washington Post pronounced it “shelved” over the weekend. Not so fast. Via the Hill, the open-borders lobby is claiming momentum: When House Democrats […]

DREAM Act update: Senate tables cloture vote, stalled another week

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 9, 2010 11:53 AM

The Senate just voted 59-40 to table the DREAM Act illegal alien bailout cloture vote. It’s been “vitiated,” to use Senate parlance. They’ll take up the House-passed version next week. Which means another week of open-borders agitation, radical ethnic tribalism, and new Democrat euphemisms for illegal aliens. It’s also another week for you to re-double […]

DREAM Act denouement: Dems fight for “de facto Americans;” vid link added; 8:35pm ET House voting, Senate delayed; Pelosi gloats: House passes Nightmare Act, 216-198, roll call vote added

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 8, 2010 05:46 PM

Dingy Harry delayed the Senate cloture vote on the DREAM Act this afternoon to allow the House to get first dibs. Debate is underway and the open-borders colors of the Democrat Party are on full display. A Democrat congressman from my state of Colorado, Jared Polis, just called illegal aliens “de facto Americans” (h/t Larry […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 7, 2010 12:30 PM

Screenshot of the University of California’s Daily Cal coverage of DREAM Act agitators. Note which flag they are flying. I’ve done what I can on this little blog to keep you informed and mobilized on the illegal alien student bailout that the Alinsky-ites cunningly dubbed the “DREAM Act.” The Senate vote is scheduled for tomorrow […]

No more illegal alien waivers

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 3, 2010 08:35 AM

My column today exposes the myriad illegal alien waiver programs that the feds and the courts have sponsored over the past 20 years. Now is the time to tell Washington: We’ve had enough. At the time I filed the column yesterday, the CBO had yet to release its score of the Dems’ latest iteration of […]

Sessions on DREAM Act: “Now is not the time”

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 2, 2010 11:34 AM

GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions has long been a stalwart defender of America’s sovereignty, homeland security, and rule of law. He played a heroic role in killing the Bush/McCain/Kennedy shamnesty and he is now leading the battle against the DREAM Act illegal alien bailout. Sen. Sessions has just issued a Dear Colleague letter on the latest […]

I told you this morning that the Dems were cooking up a new version of the DREAM Act to lure squishy Republicans and fence-sitting Democrats. Here it is in full. Note: There are now four versions of the bill on the legislative calendar. None have been reviewed in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Once again, the […]

Illegal alien DREAM Act legislative alert: Vote imminent

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 1, 2010 09:08 AM

The shamnesty wheels are turning. Harry Reid has been hard at work maneuvering to get his illegal alien bailout pay-off vote scheduled. The open-borders lobby is energized and mobilized. Are you? I’ve been warning about how the DREAM Act agitators have been pressing squishy Republicans aggressively. I’ve posted phone numbers of the fence-sitters for you. […]

DREAM Act nightmare: A massive open-borders entitlement program

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 30, 2010 08:23 AM

It’s no surprise to long-time readers of this blog that the pro-illegal immigration Wall Street Journal has come out in favor of the DREAM Act bailout. The WSJ editorial page has long crusaded for de facto and de jure amnesty — and I’ve exposed its deceptive campaigning on behalf of illegal aliensfor years. (See my […]

Black Friday open thread

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 26, 2010 08:27 AM

Hope you all had a great holiday. I’m taking the day off with family. Here’s a partial clip of my Thanksgiving Day visit with Fox & Friends yesterday calling out some of the political turkeys of the year: Among the biggest turkeys I named: Palin-bashers…for their feckless double standards (which Gov. Palin skewers perfectly on […]

Dianne Feinstein grants an illegal alien deportation waiver

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 22, 2010 12:04 PM

Longtime readers of this blog are familiar with how open-borders lawmakers in both major political parties use special congressional legislation to grant amnesty to individual illegal aliens seeking to evade deportation orders. Review my special reports from 2003 and 2007 on how the private relief bill process works. You can see the more than 100-plus […]

DREAM Act nightmare: 2.1 million future Democrat voter recruitment drive

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 19, 2010 12:20 PM

Let’s be clear. The open-borders progressives’ “DREAM Act” is an electoral nightmare. It’s not just an illegal alien student bailout. It’s a 2.1 million future Democrat voter recruitment drive. The “path to citizenship” dangled by Obama is a superhighway to generations of big government-birthed, identity politics-nursed dependents. Misguided Republicans have supported illegal alien amnesties dating […]

DREAM Act scorecard: Target Democrats on the fence or leaning no; Plus: The cowardly kiddie human shield strategy

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 18, 2010 10:45 AM

I posted the scorecard and phone numbers for DREAM Act Senate GOP fence-sitters earlier this morning. Now, here’s a look at a few of the key Democrat Senate fence-sitters and those leaning no on the stand-alone vote. Remember: Your voices and your calls count. SEN. JIM WEBB OF VIRGINIA 202-224-4024; 703-573-7090. Staff says “he hasn’t […]

DREAM Act scorecard: The GOP Senate fence-sitters; Update: LeMieux and Hutchison off the fence

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 18, 2010 09:39 AM

Scroll for updates… Yesterday, I published a target phone list of GOP Senators for the upcoming stand-alone vote on the DREAM Act/Illegal Alien Student Bailout. I’ve polled Republican Senate offices and you should know that many open-borders squishes remain on the fence about this Obama/Reid down payment on blanket illegal alien amnesty. That’s right. The […]
