Update: 11am Eastern. Indiana police report the suspect was here illegally from Guatemala and had been previously deported twice: *** Indianapolis Colts player Edwin Jackson was struck and killed, along with an Uber driver, early Sunday morning in Indiana. I reported on Twitter that the man arrested in the accident, Alex Cabrera Gonsales, is from... Read More
Is your church abetting Sanctuary Nation? by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 The random, heartless murder of a young tourist on San Francisco's Pier 14 by a five-time illegal alien deportee who benefited from the "progressive" city's sanctuary policy has law-abiding Americans, law enforcement officials and political opportunists of all stripes up in arms....

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
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
Not forgotten.
The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing yesterday on local enforcement of immigration laws. As the GOP minority pointed out: "Although they’ve given it a creative title, the Democratic majority called this hearing to fulfill its pledge to investigate Sheriff Joe Arpaio. (More on the witch hunt here.) The move follows a petition drive by... 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. And not just a run-of-the-mill illegal alien on welfare. She's one of the hundreds of thousands of deportation fugitives -- absconders -- whom... Read More
There are a lot of people who have forgotten about the heinous Newark schoolyard killings last year. (Background links.) I haven't. And neither have law enforcement authorities and prosecutors in New Jersey, who have worked hard over the past year to bring the MS-13-linked barbarians to justice. Six indictments were handed down today. And officials... Read More
"Hernandez has been arrested 16 times in five years in Colorado but apparently has never been deported, according to...
How many times do I have to ask: How many more tragedies like this need to occur before Americans finally hold illegal alien sanctuary enablers responsible for their reckless, deadly neglect? Lord have mercy. One of the victims was a 3-year-old child enjoying ice cream at Baskin-Robbins: As new questions arose about the man police... Read More
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and other Bay Area liberal lawmakers continue to look the other way at the victims of bloody illegal alien sanctuary policies. The San Francisco 49ers football team, however, isn't just sitting on the sidelines: Thank you, 49ers, for refusing to look the other way. Thank... Read More
Sick and tired of sanctuary.
Widow Daniella Bologna, whose husband and two sons were murdered by an illegal alien sanctuary beneficiary in San Francisco, is fighting back. She needs all the help she can get. I've reported on several lawsuits like this one over the past 10 years, and so far government officials have been able to evade accountability. Let's... Read More
"Gutted, like you gut a pig."
Nancy Pelosi had no comment on this latest illegal alien sanctuary travesty. Keep burying your heads in the hand, San Francisco: An immigrant suspected of being in the United States illegally - freed after being shielded from possible deportation by San Francisco officials despite committing two gang-related assaults as a juvenile - faces charges that... Read More
Sanctuary insanity continued.
Unrepentant, open-borders officials in San Francisco want illegal alien felons to stay -- and taxpayers to foot their housing and legal fees. Murder victims of sanctuary policies be damned! Guess the city doesn't think it has enough blood on its hands yet. Via Jaxon Van Derken at the SF Chron: A San Francisco city commission... Read More
"An example for the nation."
Last week, I noted the most recent open-borders insanity in Los Angeles-- a proposed ordinance requiring private retailers to set aside space for illegal alien day laborers. Well, the full city council has gone ahead and passed the rule...unanimously: Yeah. An example of the continu
Guilty on all counts.
You remember the horrible schoolbus accident in Cottonwood, MN that resulted in the deaths of these four beautiful kids: The remorseless illegal alien driver responsible for wreaking this bloody havoc was convicted on all 24 counts. You'll remember that she lied to police, telling them she was from Mexico, and blamed the accident on her... Read More
"Cultural affirmation."
You might ask yourself: Could the illegal alien sanctuary debacle in San Francisco get any worse? Any worse than the triple murder of an innocent father and his two sons at the hands of an illegal alien sanctuary beneficiary? Any worse than the callousness with which San Francisco government officials have treated the grieving, devastated... Read More
San Francisco values.
Nancy Pelosi may not care about San Francisco's inhumane and reckless illegal alien sanctuary policies. But a growing number of Bay Area residents have had enough. There's a protest tomorrow on the steps of SF's city hall. Reader David sends details. Make your voice heard:
Bay Area abomination.
Just how out of touch is Nancy Pelosi? Go look at her defense of San Francisco values, if you must. See what's missing? Not a word about the San Francisco values that led to illegal alien Honduran crack dealers getting subsidized escort shuttle service back home to escape deportation and proseuction. Not a word about... Read More
"[W]here is the compassion for the injustice inflicted upon American citizens?"
I've reported on the disastrous consequences of illegal alien sanctuary laws for the past eight years, in columns, books, and blog posts. San Francisco's policy is one of the longest standing and most damaging. Cinammon Stillwell has an excellent piece flaying the San Fran libs in the wake of the city's acknowledgement of its Honduran... Read More
"This county will not serve as San Francisco's dumping ground."
Yes. Finally. Local officials in San Bernardino are blasting open-borders San Francisco for its sanctuary policy and illegal alien criminal dumping policy. And they may sue. It's about time. The story may be off the national radar, but real people have to deal with the real, reckless consequences of left-wing radicalism. Keep at it. Hat... Read More
DREAM Act theater.
...can illegal aliens get sob-story coverage for their complaints about being denied in-state college tuition benefits. The USAT headline: "Illegal immigrants face threat of no college." Yeah, because blanket sanctuary gag orders to protect illegal alien youths have worked out so well. Ask San Francisco. *** Flashback: Before your open-borders friends and neighbors moan about... Read More
First things first. The San Francisco Chronicle's Jaxon Van Derbeken has done excellent work this past week exposing the abject stupidity, recklessness, and fecklessness of SF Mayor Gavin Newsom's open-borders administration. Van Derbeken's reporting was so devastating and so solid that the p.c. editors at his newspaper who initially refused to call the illegal alien... Read More
The Honduran drug kingpin revolving door.
Un-freaking-believable. Jaxon Van Derbeken at the SFChronicle follows up on his weekend report exposing how San Francisco operated a special tax-funded shuttle service for illegal alien Honduran drug lords to protect the poor "youths" from federal immigration officials. Now, we learn that when the city was told to stop flying the illegal immigrant drug offenders... Read More
Hope you pay close attention to what San Francisco's illegal alien sanctuary policy has wrought. Over the weekend, the SFChronicle reported that open-borders radicals in the city's juvenile probation department are shielding Honduran illegal alien drug dealers from prosecution and deportation by providing them a taxpayer-subsidized escort and plane ride back to their home country--where... Read More
Open borders in the court. Plus: McCain and Obama to attend "National Latino Congreso."
I know many of you are already sick to your stomachs over bad court news today. Sorry to deliver another one. La Raza/The Race cheers. McCain and Obama, any comment? Nada? Via KNBC: A Los Angeles judge dismissed a taxpayer lawsuit Wednesday that sought to repeal a long-standing directive prohibiting Los Angeles police officers from... Read More
Into the deportation abyss again.
Gee, where have I heard this story line before? Via A story that gets repeated over and over again as a result of the nation's comprehensive unwillingness to enforce immigration and deportation laws across the board, clearly, consistently, and unapologetically: The status of Riz’s immigration slipped past the Providence police, state court system and... 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
Open borders and the Beltway.
An illegal alien who had been deported twice before was convicted this week of the brutal murder of a restaurant worker who was employed by the popular Old Ebbitt Grill restaurant near the White House. The victim's skull was crushed after the two-time deportee bashed him in the head repeatedly with a baseball bat. Despite... Read More
Closing the door.
I can hear ACLU and La Raza/The Race lawyers stampeding to file their lawsuits now, along with the NYTimes editorial writers and Barack Obama supporters preparing to lambaste this community college system's decision as an act by "bitter" people "clinging" to the rule of law. Good for them: From sanctuary nation t
Who's looking out for you?
John McCain appeared in the "No-Spin Zone" tonight--and spun, spun, spun his way through a few, scant, superficial questions about immigration. The GOP's immigration drag queen has completely shed his costume. Asked whether he would do anything about illegal alien sanctuary cities, he shrugged off the question by muttering that "of course" he didn't approve... Read More
Unholy alliance.
During his visit this week, the Pope has made repeated comments critical of immigration enforcement efforts--such as they are--in the U.S. His primary concerns are not the sovereignty and security of our country. Open borders benefit Catholic churches looking to fill their pews and collection baskets. The Vatican and American bishops, led by radical L.A.... Read More
Repeal "don't ask-don't tell."
It's like turning around the Titanic, but there's finally a Los Angeles politician attempting to make the first common-sense change to the city's decades-old illegal alien sanctuary law in the wake of Jamiel Shaw's murder by an illegal alien gang member:
Law-abiding citizens of all colors are uniting against the targeting of innocent black residents of Los Angeles by illegal alien gangs. The parents of murdered high school student Jamiel Shaw met with L.A. public officials yesterday, urging them to rescind the city's notorious Special Order 40--one of the nation's oldest illegal alien sanctuary laws. Enough... Read More
Two years ago, I wrote about a billboard erected in Denver by illegal immigration opponents critical of the city's open-borders policies: The billboard sponsors were trying to shame city officials for flagrantly defying federal immigration laws and endangering residents. In San Francisco, city officials have no shame. They're actually launching an illegal alien sanctuary advertising... Read More
These are the four schoolchildren killed in the Cottonwood, MN bus accident this week. * Hunter Javens, 9, Cottonwood. * Jesse Javens, 13, Cottonwood (Hunter & Jesse were brothers) * Emilee Olson, 9, Cottonwood * Reed Stevens, 12, Marshall. My Fox Twin Cities reports: As I noted yesterday, a memorial fund has been set up:... Read More
Open borders, bloody consequences.
The local Fox affiliate in the Twin Cities finally confirms what the local papers didn't seem to want to mention about the horrible school bus accident that killed four children. It didn't have to happen: Authorities have confirmed that the the driver of the van that struck the school bus that killed 4 students on... 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... Read More
Deportation defiance.
Another defiant deportation evader has stepped in to "pick up the torch" that illegal alien activist Elvira Arellano left behind. Sanctuary Nation or Sovereign Nation? Which would the presidential candidates choose? Will the feds let this drag out like they did with Arellano--making a national mockery of our deportation laws?: She worked for IFCO, which... Read More
The bloody consequences of open borders, part 9,999,999.
Just think: If John McCain had his way, this animal might have received amnesty. Remember: Despite all the slick assurances from shamnesty advocates, their plan's criminal background checks were a joke. All of the illegal alien suspect's victims were young girls between the ages of 12 and 15. He started his raping spree last June--targeting... Read More
A few items for you this morning on our leading GOP immigration drag queens running for president. First up: Video of Mayor Rudy Giuliani boasting that NYC is "quite tolerant of undocumented immigration and this shouldn't surprise you because I've been mayor of this city a long time and outspoken on this issue even nationally,... Read More
Et tu?
Perhaps someone should spy, stalk, and investigate.
Immigration enforcement victory.
Good news from Arizona today, where Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon has announced his city will move to repeal its open-borders sanctuary policy: Oh, and the next time you hear open-borders radicals tell you that police officers support sanctuary, note this: The policy's opponents, including the president of Phoenix's police union, want officers to have more... Read More
"We need a president who has our backs."
Craig Nelsen of ProjectUSA recounts his battles with the open-borders Giuliani administration. Read it all. *** Meantime, Mike Huckabee gets nailed on his illegal alien in-state tuition discount support.
The CNN/YouTube debate.
Hot Air's Bryan Preston has contributed a video question for Wednesday's CNN/YouTube GOP debate: Wouldn't you like to know the GOP candidates' answers? How many could actually stick to a simple "yes or no?" Chances are low that our question will get picked. But who knows? Maybe a snowman costume would have helped our chances...... Read More
Update: Romney vs. Giuliani on immigration enforcement. Ask them where they stand on the Bush Treasury Department's approval of the matricula consular card. *** You know I'm happy to bash San Francisco when the moonbatty town deserves it, which is often, but you'll pardon me for not getting overly worked up over the Bay Area...

"Coming clean."
Update 2:00pm EasternThe NYPost compiles Kerik's "rap sheet:" Update 1:30pm Eastern Kerik pleads not guilty. Here's the PDF of the indictment. Update 12:04pm Eastern. Kerik facing a cumulative 142 years in jail. Rudy Giuliani in the wake of the indictment news: “I am not running as the perfect candidate.” "Sad day," prosecutors say. Update 11:30am... Read More
If there's one thing more nauseating than Hillary Clinton's whirling dervish positions on the Eliot Spitzer-crafted, Bush DHS-approved illegal alien driver's license plan, it's the hypocritical noise from open-borders zealots trying to exploit the moment. Take NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg (hat tip: Andrew Malcolm): BLITZER: Should illegal immigrants, there may be a million of them... Read More
Follow the money.
Update: Bad news. *** Via NumbersUSA (hat tip - reader Brad): Meantime, via FAIR, it looks the DREAM Act is back: Our sources tell us that the DREAM Act will be offered as an amendment to the Labor, Health and Human Services Appropriations bill (H.R. 3043) on the Senate floor, most likely late TODAY or... Read More
Beyond the flag wars.
I often ask you: Are we a sovereign nation or a sanctuary nation? I often remind you: It's your choice. You can choose to get involved in immigration enforcement efforts in your backyard. Or you can choose to do nothing and allow the sanctuary brigade to have its way. A lot of media attention has... Read More
Reckless driver's licenses.
I didn't get around to noting this one over the weekend. Every day, it's a tug-of-war as schizophrenic America careens from Sovereign Nation to Sanctuary Nation. Once again, New York chooses sanctuary with its new regulations allowing illegal aliens to obtain driver's licenses. Here's the Democrat governor Eliot Sptizer's press release: Just not immigration laws.... Read More
Night of the walking amnesty.
Tell your senator: Vote NO on Senate Amendment 2237 Exactly one week ago, I warned about the return of the DREAM Act, which would confer special tuition benefits on illegal alien students despite federal prohibitions on such special treatment. It was September 11 and no one was paying attention, I guess. Well, now bipartisan open-borders... Read More
