Abstract Vox is a far-right, Spanish political party that has steadily grown to become the third main party in the national congress. Immigration is a major presence in Vox\'s political agenda. Through Critical Discourse Analysis, we analyze the party\'s public speeches and Twitter communications on immigration in the last 3 years, from the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 to the Ukraine-Russia war in 2022. These contexts have provided a fertile ground for Vox\'s concerns with the protection of national borders, the criminalization of African and irregular immigrants, and the Spanish Government\'s ineffectiveness to protect the Spaniards\' homes. Vox\'s main discursive strategies entail constructions of migrants and migration based on dichotomous binaries, culture clash, exclusionary discourses of domopolitics, and fears of imminent social and cultural changes. These constructions are based on the unproblematized belief on essential and unchangeable values that forge the identity of the homeland, which is implicitly threatened by immigrants. Against the migratory invasion, Vox constitutes itself as the ethical protector of the Spanish society and nation, "out of care for the insiders and not out of hatred for outsiders."
