Michelle Malkin, Fox News contributor and keynote speaker at Civitas’ 2013 Conservative Leadership Conference, spoke with Fox & Friends anchors Thursday morning about immigration. Malkin rejected the suggestion of amnesty as an immigration reform solution, the day after several U.S. Senators including John McCain visited the Mexico-U.S. border. During the Senators’ visit, a woman climbed the eighteen-foot wall separating the U.S. and Mexico. She was promptly arrested.
On the Fox News segment, “Caught in the Act,” Malkin calls out “The Gang of Eight” for their floundering immigration reform attempts, noting that both parties have failed to achieve the goal of securing the border and that the grassroots conservatives need to focus on the existing statutes on immigration.
Malkin delivered a powerful outcry for those who are trying to immigrate into the United States legally, enduring the long procedure of achieving citizenship, suggesting that they are the ones who are being forgotten and ignored by the government.
