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
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...

Painful in pink.
It is painfully clear from this latest clip of California Democrat Rep. Pete Stark at last weekend's town hall that he has no idea what the hell E-Verify -- the federal employer citizenship verification program -- is. Nor does he seem to care what it is, as he smirks at his informed constituents and asserts... Read More
Scroll for updates...7:09pm Eastern...motion to invoke cloture passes 62-35...and...omni-pork sails through the Senate on voice vote...$410 billion soon to siphoned away from taxpayers to bolster congressional re-election prospects...they should have said "Oink" instead of "aye..." Just watched Jeff Session's E-Verify amendment to ensure that omni-pork spending only goes to legal citizens get tabled. Vote was... Read More
Oh, the open-borders crowd's heads are exploding. Under President Obama and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano's watch, federal immigration agents had the nerve to -- gasp! -- enforce immigration laws. How could this happen? Quick, launch an investigation! This must not be allowed to stand! You can be sure the taxpayer-funded National Council of Raza will... Read More
Just heard from Sen. Sessions' office about the bipartisan amendment to ensure that stimulus fund recipients perform E-verify citizenship vetting before spending our tax dollars. Good news: "...the E-Verify fight isn't over. We just re-filed the amendment which is modified to fit the Collins/Nelson substitute. We can still object to a UC [unanimous consent] to... Read More
GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions and Democrat Sen. Ben Nelson attempted several times to bring their bipartisan amendment to the floor last week. SA 239 would require local governments and businesses that receive porkulus money to use the federal E-Verify citizenship check system. On the House side, a long term extension of the E-Verify program passed... Read More
But wait. The open-borders folks are always telling us these are jobs Americans won't do. John "Lettuce" McCain doesn't think these Americans exist, either. Yet here they are, American citizens lining up to do the work illegal aliens were doing (just like they did after the Colorado Swift raids): Howard Industries found itself at the... Read More
Judging from my e-mail, a lot of folks are hopping mad about this weekend's story from the Shelbyville, Tennessee Times-Gazette concerning Tyson Foods' decision to replace the paid Labor Day holiday with the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr. Brian Moselely reports that there are 700 Muslims working at the 1,200-employee plant, including some 250 Somali... Read More
As expected, John McCain's appearance at the annual convention of La Raza/The Race yielded no Hermana Souljah moments. Ed Morrissey points to McCain's mild, almost apologetic rejoinder to open-borders zealot Enrique Morones and compares it to Barack Obama's embrace of the radical activist. That's a relief. But it's the very least we could expect of... Read More
Rule of lawlessness.
Via the Senate Conservatives Fund comes news of a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling this week making it illegal to fire illegal alien workers who use fake Social Security numbers. Crikey: Here’s the news from the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco: A federal appeals court ordered reinstatement Monday for 33... Read More
No kidding.
Reader A.F. e-mails the chart of the day. He writes: "Michelle, I work peripherally for the insurance industry and get the industry’s magazine National Underwriter. The May 8 issue contains a cover story titled: "Workers Comp for Illegal Aliens Sparks Debate Among the States." A box within the text describes which states already provide WC... Read More
I've covered dozens of stories like this over the years. The same pattern recurs: Reports of illegal aliens working at secure military facilities, outrage at the news, plans to deport the illegal workers and punish the employers...followed by few or zero deportations and a slap on the wrist for the employers. How much you wanna... Read More
Yes, they can.
Are we a Sanctuary Nation or Sovereign Nation? A growing and surprising number of judges are coming down on the side of local immigration enforcement. This is especially welcome news given the shrinking differences between the GOP and Democrat establishments on the issue. Via the NYT, which must be beside itself: After groups challenging state...

Mexican lawmakers whine about Arizona employer sanctions law.
Arizona has a tough, new state employer sanctions law to discourage illegal immigration. It's called the Legal Arizona Workers Act and it prohibits employers from knowingly employing unauthorized aliens; requires the Attorney General and county Attorney to investigate complaints about employers who hire unauthorized aliens; and makes it unlawful for a person to file false... Read More
Enforcement starts at home.
Good news for immigration enforcement proponents from Phoenix: But the open-borders lobby will be back, of course: The plaintiffs had asked for a preliminary injunction blocking the law from taking effect. Farrell Quinlan, a spokesman for business groups in the suit, said they planned to file more information with the judge to answer what he... Read More
Et tu?
Perhaps someone should spy, stalk, and investigate.
Well, this is fascinating. Two Boston Globe reporters hung out on Mitt Romney's lawn last week and other Globe staffers have been scoping out the lawn over the last two months: Standing on stage at a Republican debate on the Gulf Coast of Florida last week, Mitt Romney repeatedly lashed out at rival Rudy Giuliani... Read More
Robert Novak and other Beltway Republicans have found a lot not to like about Mike Huckabee. Glaringly, Novak has nothing to say about Huckabee's unrepentant open-borders record: For shamnesty. For recycling McCain-esque insults of American workers. For pandering to identity politics. And not only for government in-state illegal alien tuition discounts, but for expanding them... Read More
Rule of law.
There are, believe it or not, a few Democrats who have their heads screwed on straight when it comes to immigration enforcement. Several were elected last fall; the open-borders lobby has conveniently ignored them. At their peril. Numbers USA brings words that one of the pro-enforcement Dems is readying a worthwhile piece of legislation with... Read More
Welcome to our open-borders judiciary: *** Previous: Federal judge blocks tougher penalties for illegal-alien hiring
The Center for Union Facts is marking Labor Day by reminding Americans of union fatcats and the corruption of Big Labor. The state of the unions is...not good: Things are so bad with one carpenters' union that it outsourced picketing duties to homeless people. As I noted a few days ago, Big Labor is busying... Read More
Employer sanctions, SSN no-match letters stymied by San Francisco judge (Clinton appointee, surprise!).
Oh, crikey. A San Francisco federal judge appointed by guess-who interferes with stiffer employer sanctions for businesses that knowingly hire illegal aliens because she says she needs more "breathing room:" Who's behind the lawsuit? Big Labor. Yeah, you know, the same lobby that's supposed to be looking after American workers (or as Miss Teen South... Read More
Update - related note: Lots of folks are asking about the accused killer in the Newark execution-style murders of four young students. Yes, he's here illegally according to media and law enforcement officials and he just pleaded not guilty this morning. More: "Carranza, who spoke through an interpreter, admitted he was not a U.S. citizen... Read More
Cutting the corners no one else will cut.
Yup, you guessed it (via the Sun Herald):
"We must fight all for one and one for all, or we lose the moral authority to fight for anybody."
The nation's biggest racial demagogue and the nation's biggest employer joined hands at the National Council of La Raza's annual conference to push for another shamnesty bill. AP reports: Looks like Scott could use a little more "cerebral exercise" himself. Wal-Mart needs to worry less about what Congress is doing and more about its own... Read More
Update: La Shawn Barber writes in today's Washington Examiner--"Now that amnesty is dead, locals must act against employers." *** Take that, John McCain: Beginning in January, employers in Arizona could face having their business licenses suspended or revoked if they get caught hiring illegal immigrants. A new law signed Monday by Gov. Janet Napolitano created... Read More
I support Dunkin Donuts because they support our immigration laws.
Last spring, I praised Dunkin' Donuts for volunteering to participate in a government database program to verify that workers are here legally. The company was responding to customer concerns about illegal employees. Only 6,200 out of the nation’s 8 million employers participate in the screening program. The company continues to be vigilant. The Star-Ledger reports... Read More
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... Read More
I filed my State of the Borders column this afternoon. Didn't need to wait for President Bush's State of the Union Address to know what's in store: the coming amnesty disaster. More on that tomorrow. In the meantime, as is the White House m.o., the feds put on another last-minute dog-and-pony show to show their... Read More
First, check out this reaction to yesterday's illegal alien worker raids published in the Des Moines Register: Caption: Hector Angel, a Marshalltown business owner, states his point of view about the raid as ICE buses roll away from the plant. A natural response from open-borders zealots who've been giving the finger to immigration law for... Read More
The good news: The bad news: And if there are employer sanctions, they'll be bargained down to nothing. What won't make news: 1) It'll be just a matter of days before all of the illegal aliens caught are released. And then disappear. 2) The congressional representatives in each of these states--on both sides of the... Read More
Andy Ostroy has posted a poignant message about his wife, Adrienne Shelly, whose accused murderer, illegal alien day laborer Diego Pillco, reportedly tried to cover up the crime by faking a suicide scene. New Yorkers speak out about compromised borders and safety. A sample: The N
On election day, I was in New York City. You know what a lot of New Yorkers were buzzing about that day? Not the election. They were buzzing about a tragic story that has disappeared under the national MSM radar screen--even though folks who live in the city (including journalists) are still talking about it... Read More
Open-borders extremists are starting a boycott of the donut franchises and the restaurant chain. Why? Because they won't hire aliens whose bogus Social Security numbers don't check out: A local group fighting for immigrant rights is calling for a boycott of two nationally known companies. Dunkin Donuts and Applebee's are accused of discriminating against immigrant... Read More
The first Friday in June is designated National Donut Day. You know which kind to get.
...because they support our immigration laws. Beginning today, all 5,000 of Dunkin' Donuts franchisees will be required to participate in a government database program to verify that workers are here legally. The company was responding to customer concerns about illegal employees. Only 6,200 out of the nation's 8 million employers participate in the screening program,... Read More
The White House is webcasting the President's speech paying lip service to immigration enforcement now. Liveblogging... Most ridiculous line so far: Introducing his temporary "guest worker" plan by saying we need to "bring workers out of the shadows and reject amnesty." More tough talk: Those who enter our country illegally violate the law. To keep... Read More
I find it annoying that Bernard Kerik is getting praised in some quarters for "coming clean" and "accepting responsibility" for his "mistake." From all accounts, including Kerik's own, President Bush's aides asked him upfront about the nanny question several times during the vetting process and he did not come clean. Kerik didn't just make some... Read More
