Washington, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – By now, everone knows who Jose Antonio Vargas is, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who, years ago came out as an undocumented immigrant, or American as he would like to put it. He has since become a staunch advocate for immigration reform.

But there’s also Ruben Vives, the Los Angeles Times reporter who won a 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. Prior to his Pulitzer, Vives, who was born in Guatemala, was an undocumented immigrant and, like Vargas, he didn’t  know about it until later.

Pulitizer Prize-winning and other journalists are at the receiving end of both the country’s broken immigration system and President Obama’s immigration reform.

Like Michelle Malkin, conservative columnist . Althought not a Pulitzer Prize winner, she is the author of a book that justifies the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

Malkin, who like Vargas is from the Philippines, has been in the U.S. Illegally, or as we would like to put it — undocumentedly . Allegedly, she faked her marriage to a U.S. citizen in order to legalize her status . The arranged marriage was eventually discovered by then Attorney General Janet Reno (of the Elián González custody case fame in 2000).

Since then, Malkin has been living in the shadows (or as Filipinos call it, TNT, or Tago ng Tago – always hiding), writing her columns from an undisclosed location in the Pacific Northwest.

With Obama’s recent executive action on immigration, Malkin is among the estmated 5 Million undocumented immigrants who have been given relief from deportation. In fact, Malkin has just received her green card.

So now  she can come out of the shadows and openly attack Obama’s policies, including immigration reform.

All’s well that ends well.

Colorado Springs, Colorado (The Adobo Chronicles) – Filipino American Michelle Malkin is a conservative blogger, political commentator and author whose weekly syndicated column appears in a number of newspapers and websites.  She is a Fox News Channel contributor and has been a guest on MSNBC, C-SPAN and national radio programs.

The 44 year-old Obama basher rose to prominence after she published her 2004 book entitled, “In Defense of Internment: The Case for ‘Racial Profiling’ in World War II and the War on Terror.”  In this book, she defended the U.S. government’s internment of 112,000 Japanese Americans in prison camps during World War II, and argued that the same procedures could be used on Arab- and Muslim-Americans today.

Most of her blog writings are anti-Obama, anti-Democrat and anti-almost anything that is opposed to her ultra conservative views.

Today, The Adobo Chronicles uncovered a disturbing fact about her conservative blog: it is funded by the Obama White House (see screen capture).

We can only speculate either of two things:  one, that she speaks from both sides of her mouth, pretending to be conservative when deep down in her heart she is really a liberal; or two, that The White House is funding her anti-liberal rants to demonstrate the stupidity of the conservative movement in the country.

We’ll let our readers decide.
