Another cynical Democratic "Citizenship USA" voter drive by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 There's only one time when you can depend on the chronically backlogged, recklessly inefficient Department of Homeland Security to perform smoothly: election season.

Jose Antonio Vargas: The face of the entitled illegal alien by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 They've blown it again, big time. They just can't help themselves.

Obama's Immigration Lawyers' Enrichment Act by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 The American Dream is dying for tens of millions of unemployed, underemployed and long-term jobless citizens. But the White House has guaranteed that one sector of the U.S. economy will thrive for decades to come: Open-borders immigration lawyers. Don't believe the fibbing D.C.... Read More
Military bases: Obama's new illegal alien dumping grounds by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 A source tipped me off last week to a curious occurrence: It seems that two planeloads of illegal aliens were recently shipped to Massachusetts.

What have I said ever since my first book Invasion came out in 2002? It ain't over 'til the alien wins. America's systematically refuses to enforce visa requirements, enforce deportation orders and fix our reckless immigration catch-and-release policies. President Obama's illegal alien, drunk-driving deportation evader uncle, Onyango Omar, is here to stay and Big Labor,... Read More
As if the nail had not been driven into California's coffin enough, along come a raft of new open-borders goodies for illegal aliens. Gov. Jerry Brown has now sanctioned the practice of law by law-breakers. He also signed measures that will make it even harder to detain illegal alien criminals, further endangering the law-abiding populace... Read More
As I mentioned earlier in my column today, the persistent deportation and removal abyss allows hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens -- many of them known, repeat criminal offenders -- to pass through the immigration court system and then disappear into the ether because we have no determined will to track them down and kick...

Amnesty Gang Throws Law-Abiders Under the Bus by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 President Obama and the bipartisan Gang of Eight in Washington who want to create a "pathway to citizenship" for millions of illegal aliens have sent a message loud and clear to those who follow the rules: You're chumps!

We have learned nothing since America's worst illegal alien catch-and-release nightmare, the Angel Resendiz case (go here for a refresher course). The latest victims of the feds' refusal to fully fund detention space and stop the deportation revolving door? Victims of an illegal alien drunk driver in Prince William County, Va., who had been, as... Read More
Here we go again. I've long reported on the danger of illegal alien sanctuary city policies embraced by woefully misguided (at best) and criminally reckless public officials seeking to appease the open borders lobby. One of the countless casualties of this deadly pandering was Houston PD officer Rodney Johnson, who shot and killed during a... Read More
Club Fed for illegal aliens by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2010 Thanks to their international "human rights" advocates, Gitmo detainees receive art therapy, movie nights and video games at their U.S. taxpayer-funded camp in Cuba. Now, the left's bleeding heart lobby wants to provide similar taxpayer-sponsored perks to illegal alien detainees on American soil.... Read More
Josie Bluhm, age 4. R.I.P.
Here we go again: Serial drunk driver. Countless trips through the revolving door. Immigration status ignored. Now, a four-year-old girl dead. Her mother and brother hospitalized. The community is outraged. Politicians claim to be perplexed. And the pro-illegal alien amnesty group is ready to pounce on anyone who dares talk about this case as a... Read More
Scroll down for updates... My syndicated column today reports the rest of the deportation fugitive Aunti Zeituni Onyango story that both Barack Obama and George Bush would prefer to keep covered up.

The wheels on the bus go thumpity-thump.

Despite her illegal absconder status, she not only obtained federal housing benefits, but also... Read More
Double standards and unanswered questions.
I predicted the totally predictable last night. And so it has come to pass: The left-wing fairweather friends of privacy are all over the leak of Aunti Zeituni's immigration info -- while Joe The Plumber remains persona non grata. Democrat Rep. John Conyers has already called for a federal investigation. The WaPo is already up... Read More
Scroll for updates...Obama to return donations...for once Well now. Turns out Aunti Zeituni Onyango, one of Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama's many relatives made famous in his memoir, is an illegal alien.

Fishing for Pulitzers.
Hey, boys and girls, it's time for another Pulitzer fishing expedition by the Washington Post. I just finished wading through the paper's hype-inflated series on the federal immigration detention system's shoddy health care. WaPo purports to expose a "hidden network" of immigrant prisons and pretends to blow the lid off Abu Ghraib-like and Gitmo-esque conditions... Read More
Sanctuary no more.
Update: Here are the suspect photos: *** If you can get past the nauseating euphemisms, this report is worth reading: Three undocumented immigrant men remain jailed today in the brazen sexual assault of an unconscious woman in Fairview, an outdoor attack interrupted by law officers early Tuesday, authorities said. Police reported the men, all undocumented... Read More

***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.

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.
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... Read More

I've reported on the absconder problem extensively in Invasion and in my columns. This is nothing new: What is new--this fun fact: Despite the creation of the absconder apprehension initiative and the allocation of more than $204 million since 2003, the backlog of fugitive alien cases has inc
For most people, the Beltway-area sniper case is a distant memory. Over and done.

Tom Tancredo, a stalwart immigration enforcement advocate. It was... Read More
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... Read More
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): Released...never to be seen again. *** Reader H. reports from H

The Bush administration wants "an effective bill that... Read More
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... Read More
