There is no such thing as a "deserving DREAMer" by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2017 Over and over again, from the mouths of politicians in both parties, identity politics purveyors and cheap labor lobbyists, we hear the same refrains about President Obama's 800,000 amnestied illegal alien youths: "They don't deserve to be punished." "They... Read More
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. While hundreds of thousands of visa overstayers and deportation fugitives remain on the loose, federal bureaucrats at the... Read More
The GOP's Orrin Hatch problem by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 Did the 2014 midterms really happen? Less than three months after a red tide rolled over the country, the Senate Republican Rollover Caucus is back to its default position in Washington, D.C.: Hands up, bow down. Last week, senior GOP supplicant Sen. Orrin... Read More
The truth about Obama's "temporary" Ebola amnesty by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 When it rains, it pours. Just before unveiling his colossal administrative amnesty for millions of "undocumented" aliens and foreign tech workers on Thursday, President Obama separately ordered up to 8,000 more executive pardons and special work passes for Liberians, Sierra Leoneans...

Is GOP ready for Obama's Attorney General fight? by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Gird your loins, Beltway Republicans. Election Day is barely over, but the progressive left is locked and loaded for battle over President Obama's next U.S. attorney general. Liberals unhappy with the administration's failure to deliver a mass illegal alien amnesty... Read More
Screenshot via the LA Times website: Jonathan DelCarmen is 19. He came to this country illegally seven years ago, when he was 12. He fits the profile of the prototypical "DREAM" youth whom President Obama has granted administrative amnesty to (and wants to expand massively) -- and whom open-borders advocates in both parties believe should...

Want a real anti-poverty plan? Stop amnesty now! by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 It is now all the fashionable rage in Washington, D.C., to proclaim solidarity with America's working poor in front of the cameras -- while stabbing them in the back behind closed doors. Privileged Illinois Democratic Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky and others... Read More
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. During the Bush years, the open-borders movement won over bleeding hearts in the White House but alienated the American public with radical displays of La Raza ("The... Read More
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! Have you patiently... Read More
Call it Occupy Open Borders. Illegal alien students have been agitating for decades for the implementation of the DREAM Act. Congress has rejected it every time. President Obama has indulged them instead with piecemeal amnesty and orders of non-enforcement like last summer's illegal alien deportation waivers. But it still wasn't enough. So, this week they... Read More
Surprise, surprise, Part II. Yesterday, I discussed the White House deportation waivers -- a blanket amnesty through administrative non-enforcement that will benefit at least an estimated 2.1 million future Democratic voters. Today, the New York Times brings news of the first lucky winners of the Obama amnesty golden tickets. You'll be shocked, shocked to learn... Read More
Before I get to the big and disappointing announcement this afternoon, I want to share an e-mail from a Utah Tea Party leader in Utah who was incensed that the movement to unseat entrenched incumbent GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch was falsely portrayed as an "outside" campaign orchestrated by nefarious forces: Dear Michelle, Most of the... Read More
Surprise, surprise. No, it's about as unsurprising as the setting sun or the rising sun. The Obama Department of Homeland Security late last week announced it would enforce the DREAM Act illegal alien student bailout by administrative order -- call them White House deportation waivers -- over the heads of a bipartisan majority of Congress...

As faithful readers of this blog know, I was reporting on the Tea Party movement long before it was even called the Tea Party movement -- and long before a legion of Johnny-come-latelys in Washington had grabbed their fiscal conservative costumes and joined the parade. I can remember not being able to get mainstream media... Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More

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: Meanwhile, Senate Democrats continue to push the pro-amnesty DREAM Act and security-undermining environmental land grabs. Priorities... *** The... Read More
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... Read More
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...

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... Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More
Now is the time to melt those phone lines and make yourselves heard on the multi-billion-dollar DREAM Act illegal alien student bailout. The Senate is scheduled to take a cloture vote on the DREAM Act at 4pm Eastern today. More info here. One interesting development among squishy Senate Republicans. I heard from Sen. McCain's office... Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More
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.... Read More
Big Labor and the Open Borders Lobby are launching six-figure ad campaign for the DREAM Act illegal alien bailout in Florida, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada, and Texas. They never rest. And they are putting their money where their mouths are. How about you? Media Advisory For: Contact: Blair Fitzgibbon November 30, 2010 (202) 503-6141 **Telephonic Press... Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More
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...

As I told you yesterday and as I've been telling you for, oh, years, the shamnesty crowd is counting on open-borders Republicans to drag the DREAM Act illegal alien student bailout across the legislative finish line. Here's a handy phone list of target Senate Republicans. Use and share: Sen. Murkowski of Alaska 202-224-6665 907-271-3735 Sen.... Read More
The illegal alien student bailout architects are meeting with President Obama today to strategize and schedule the DREAM Act vote for the lame-duck session. Via Politico: "Sen.

Two years ago, immigration enforcement activists scored a victory in a lower California court challenge to the state's illegal aien student tuition-discount scheme. 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...

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... Read More
Soon-to-be lame duck Harry Reid is promising yet another vote on the perpetually rejected DREAM Act illegal alien student bailout. Univision host Jorge Ramos crowed about it on his Twitter page, promoting an interview with Reid scheduled to air this Sunday. The Huffington Post confirmed: Don't forget: A critical number of
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... Read More

Walking it back.
Looks like DREAM Act zealot Colin Powell has been talking to his lawyer in the last 24 hours. Since boasting yesterday on the talk show circuit that he employed illegal aliens to do work on his McLean, Va. manse, he has now performed a whiplash-inducing walk back of the standard Washington variety. He "misspoke." Yesterday:... Read More

The open-borders lobby is out in full force, launching a week-long campaign yesterday to pass another illegal alien amnesty-by-another-name. DREAM Act activists and Hispanic lawmakers strategized with President Obama at the White House. The "undocumented students action and resource network" has been activated. How about you? Keep track of where your lawmakers stand at NumbersUSA.... Read More
I've been covering the bipartisan open-borders push for the illegal alien DREAM Act since 2004. Quick legislative recap: Senate Republicans beat back the attempt to give special in-state college tuition preference to illegal aliens in 2007. It fell eight votes short of cloture in 2008 and was reintroduced in the House in 2009 to no... Read More
