With some news outlets reporting that the Homeland Security Department has lost track of a million undocumented immigrants , The Tonight Show ’s Jay Leno got a shot in at the federal government, saying that the National Security Agency couldn’t help because it only stalks American citizens.

President Barack Obama turned 52 years old Sunday , which prompted Late Night ’s Jimmy Fallon to joke about Vice President Joe Biden’s maturity level. The event also gave Leno opportunity to take a shot at First Lady Michelle Obama’s plan to make Americans healthier and joke about NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

The Affordable Care Act remains a hot topic on late-night TV. Real Time ’s Bill Maher took shots at the Republican-led House of Representatives, comparing their repeal attempts to a very unsavory character. Leno joked about the news that Congressional offices will be getting help in paying for the program , saying the act should be called “The Do As We Say, Not As We Do Act.”

Fast forward to 2:30 to see Maher compare House Republicans to an infamous Californian.
