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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

Hope you all had a great holiday. I’m taking the day off with family.

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

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 […]

The […]

The lower court ruled that California’s version of the DREAM Act conflicted with federal immigration law. Flashback: A state appellate court has put a financial cloud over the future of tens of […]

Harry Reid’s non-English-speaking voting bloc

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 4, 2010 09:43 AM

Nothing smells right about Harry Reid. His re-election on Tuesday has deepened the stench. Theories are flying left and right to explain the failure of polls that had consistently showed Sharron Angle ahead. The New York Times points to Latinos as Reid’s hidden salvation. And not just any Latinos. It was apparently Latinos who prefer […]

DREAM Act won’t die

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 23, 2010 10:53 AM

The illegal alien student bailout is alive and kicking, despite the grass-roots immigration enforcement backlash that helped kill Harry Reid’s social justice-laden defense authorization bill earlier this week. According to @Senatus: “The DREAM Act has been procedurally added to the legislative calendar as a stand-alone bill (S. 3827).” Don’t forget: A critical number of Soros/open-borders […]
