John Lee Malvo, the Jamaican national arrested early this morning near Frederick, MD in connection with the beltway sniper case, was in INS custody in Seattle on January 24, 2002.

Border Patrol puts defiant illegal alien abettors on notice
The U.S. Border Patrol issued new guidelines warning that illegal immigrants should not be transported for medical assistance even if they are in distress. -- The guidelines could mean that humanitarian groups who provide such help would be subject to arrest. -- The guidelines state "transportation to local authorities or medical treatment should not be undertaken," even if an immigrant is in medical distress, the Tucson Citizen reported Thursday. Driving the immigrants to a hospital or another location can be viewed as "illegal and can result in prosecution." -- Tucson-based Samaritan Patrol this summer openly transported immigrants to hospitals and to Tucson's Southside Presbyterian Church.

Who let Lee Malvo loose?
The mainstream media informed us this week that Lee Malvo, the reportedly "17-year-old" youth charged as a material witness in the sniper investigation along with John Mohammed, is a "Jamaican national." As of this writing (Oct. 24), the Immigration and Naturalization Service refused to comment publicly on the exact nature of Malvo's immigration status. -- Here are the facts the INS doesn't want you to know: Lee Malvo is an illegal alien from Jamaica who jumped ship in Miami in June 2001. [American Patrol broke this story this morning. Michelle explains the details.]

Poll Exposes Elite-Public Clash On Immigration
In the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist atrocities by 19 legal immigrants to this country, childishly naive observers such as I actually believed that at last the American ruling class would get the message-that it's not a terribly good idea to let millions of immigrants traipse into your country without at least knowing who they are, why they're here, where they're going to be, and what they plan to do. -- Alas, a large bucket of cold reality has been splashed into my face, and I now know better.

INS Incompetents Let Sniper Suspect Walk Free
The widely reviled Immigration and Naturalization Service is under attack once again, this time for bungling the case of sniper suspect John Lee Malvo, 17, a citizen of Jamaica. -- The INS let Malvo wander alone in America for 10 months, Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly reported tonight. -- Malvo is also a suspect in the Sept. 21 murder of a liquor store clerk in Montgomery, Ala. His fingerprint was found on a weapons magazine in a parking lot outside the store, Mayor Bobby Bright told the Associated Press.

Fox "has raised the immigration issue to the first level, to the primary level, and has begun with President Bush, soon after they both took office, a process which will be complicated, which will be long, but which we hope ... will come to fruition, to reach agreements between the United States and Mexico on immigration issues that are of great importance to both our countries..."

How illegals cripple law enforcement
A police decision to hand over two [illegals] to immigration authorities earlier this week is silencing potential witnesses in the serial sniper investigation, area Hispanic leaders said Wednesday. -- "It's a really bad message to send the Latino community and immigrants in general," said Gustavo Torres, director of a suburban Montgomery Co. social service agency, CASA of Maryland. "I am not going to encourage my community to (report) those criminals, (if) witnesses are going to be deported."

Idaho town being colonized by Hispanics
...As of the 1990 Census, no towns in Idaho were more than half Hispanic. But sometime during the 1990s, Anglos slipped into the minority in three cities -- Minidoka, Wilder and Roberts. -- The 2000 Census found the highest concentration of Hispanics, 77%, in tiny Minidoka. Of the city's 129 residents, the Census reported that 100 were Hispanic. Minidoka County is following, to a lesser extent, the trend that has transformed its namesake town. The proportion of Hispanic people in the county reached 25.5% in 2000. -- Meanwhile, Idaho's Hispanic population nearly doubled during the '90s, making up 7.8% of the state's population in 2000.

Most important release of 2002: Michelle Malkin's "Invasion"
"Invasion" exposes the starring role played by the federal government in the 9/11 tragedies. By creating overly generous immigration and visa policies in 1965, then letting those policies slip into practices that had no system of checks and balances, the U.S. government made it easy for our enemies to infiltrate the country and execute their murderous plot. -- "Invasion" is compelling and shocking. The uninitiated will learn how the immigration process has come completely unwound.

Let's end the bilingual travesty
If I were a Hispanic-American, I would feel humiliated every time an automated telephone answering system prompted me to press 1 for English, 2 for Spanish. I would wince every time an ATM machine invited me to conduct my transaction en Espanol. It would mortify me to click on a government Web site and find a link to the site's elaborate Spanish-language section. -- If I were Hispanic, I would be ashamed that so many American institutions take it for granted that people like me can't understand English.

From Mexico and beyond, they come month after month to this remote town on the windblown prairie -- some with visas and some with forged identities, some guided by smugglers and some drawn by loved ones. -- Immigration, both legal and not, has turned Denison -- population 7,300 -- into an unlikely boom town. -- One Kansas meatpacking town, Dodge City, is now about 40% Latino. -- Mark Grey, who has studied the trend for years, estimates that from 30% to 60% of the immigrants in Iowa are in the United States illegally.

Standing around may cost you soon in Cave Creek (about 25 miles north of Scottsdale, AZ). -- The town appears poised to launch a major campaign against trespassers. -- It comes following an increase in complaints from residents and business owners, mostly over Hispanic males who loiter around a local church that has a day laborer program. -- Cave Creek Mayor Vincent Francia said he has been trying for some time to crack down on all loiterers and trespassers, not just the day laborers, but has met with resistance from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, which provides law enforcement services for Carefree and Cave Creek.

The Nebraska Bank Killers: Were They Or Weren't They?
On September 26 a murderous Nebraska bank robbery shocked the nation. --- Were these Hispanic robbers immigrants? I'm a detail-oriented person who likes to get the facts straight.

I started with Larry Holmquist of the Omaha FBI. He said that the local police were more likely to know....
