Amnesty author Mike Pence for president? Dick Armey, Club for Growth, others hype him (UPDATE: he's out) - 01/21/11

... in 2006, Indiana Congressman Mike Pence proposed his own "compromise" amnesty plan. He may have gotten the idea for that plan from a proposal by billionaire heiress Helen Krieble, and also in 2006, Krieble, Pence, and Dick Armey of Freedomworks appeared at an event to promote comprehensive immigration reform. The latest bad idea from their general camp is to try to draft Pence to run for...

Koch family, U.S. Chamber, businesses met to plan strategy (+Glenn Beck, tea parties, "mobilize citizens for November") - 10/20/10

... immigration), John Stossel (ditto), Mike Pence (ditto), Bobby Jindal, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Rush Limbaugh, Jim DeMint, Tom Coburn, Paul Ryan, and Tom Price. Obviously, there's nothing wrong or that sinister about the Kochs holding meetings like these. And, George Soros and associates no doubt hold similar meetings with those on their side. However, just as Soros' loose borders...

9/12: Tea Party march on Washington DC live coverage (Glenn Beck, Freedomworks) - 09/12/09

... Cato Institute (ditto), and Rep. Mike Pence (ditto). The "star" power is provided by a Baldwin brother: Stephen (apparently Mickey Dolenz wasn't available). And, from the libertarian side of things, they've got speakers from Ron Paul's "Campaign for Liberty", the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights, and the Free State Project. They've also got speakers from two race-based groups: Mario Lopez...

"National Council for a New America": new GOP, same old amnesty? (Jeb, McCain, Romney) - 04/29/09

... had their own amnesty plans: Mike Pence and Jon Kyl. Per Ben Smith, Sarah Palin was invited and hasn't replied yet; Newt Gingrich and Michael Steele were ruled out due to heading a 527 and a party respectively. UPDATE: The full text of the letter they sent out is below. Other signatories are Cathy McMorris Rodgers, John Carter, Pete Sessions, David Dreier, Kevin McCarthy, Roy Blunt, John Cornyn...

White House's "tough cop" amnesty scheme (the "infinitely renewable Z visa") - 03/28/07

... similar provision, as does the Mike Pence scam, but both of those are not tied to performance regarding reduced illegal immigration; rather, they're tied to having resources in place or as little as having plans ready. I have little doubt that the White House scheme will be similar.

Adam Nagourney doesn't confront GOP candidates on immigration politics - 03/19/07

... scheme similar to that proposed by Mike Pence. You know, the one that featured unlimited immigration. We're also informed that "McCain... is from a border state that is deeply divided over immigration." Yes, large majorities voting for three propositions designed to reduce illegal immigration mark a state as "deeply divided". It's truly an "NYT-style" deep divide. And: "Tom Tancredo... has based...

Michael Chertoff admits he isn't doing his job (guest worker program) - 11/13/06

DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff spoke to the editorial board of the Dallas Morning News, and admitted that he isn't doing his job: "We are going to go after systematic, willful violators with heavy criminal cases, where people face real jail time, losing businesses, paying millions and millions of dollars in fines. Because that is the only way you will start to change the behavior that has driven...

Dick Armey, Kay Bailey Hutchison, Mike Pence, and Helen Krieble do lunch - 09/26/06

... Hutchison (R-TX), Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN, 6), and Helen Krieble, President of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation. It was her brilliant idea - perhaps as a way to get cheap labor for her horse ranch - that led to the Pence massive amnesty scheme, you know, the one that would allow unlimited immigrants. Pausing briefly to wipe the "cheap" vegetables off his chin, Dick offers the usual...

Mike Pence "compromise" amnesty pimped by Chertoff, White House - 08/24/06

... Michael Chertoff joined with Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) to pimp the latter's massive illegal alien amnesty and "guest" worker scheme. You know, the scheme that would allow unlimited immigrants and the one that's supported by the WaPo.

Catch-and-release "stopped"; White House to pimp Pence massive illegal alien amnesty - 08/24/06

Yesterday DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff claimed that nearly all non-Mexican illegal aliens were being returned to their home countries and that "catch-and-release" had been stopped. Under C&R non-Mexicans who were caught were given notices to appear and released into the U.S.

Pence massive amnesty bad enough to get WaPo support - 08/14/06

If the news that Mike Pence's massive illegal alien amnesty would allow unlimited immigration wasn't enough of a clue to how bad it is, and if this article didn't do the trick, now comes the WaPo to let us know just how bad it is.

"A Compromised Plan" (Mike Pence massive illegal alien amnesty) - 08/06/06

From National Review: Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas, both Republicans, are making a last-ditch effort to bridge their party's divide on immigration and pass a bill this year. We agree that the country, and the Republican party, would benefit if a sensible immigration plan were passed soon.

Tamar Jacoby's "Immigration Realism" - 08/02/06

America's favorite amnestibot, Tamar Jacoby, has joined with Cesar V. Conda to pen "Immigration Realism". It's their reply to John Fonte's reply to the WSJ's reply to the original National Review open letter demanding enforcement first. And, as you might assume, Jacoby is wrong. Here's just one way: None of those who signed our letter believe that immigrants have a "human right" to come to work...

Mike Pence amnesty "would allow unlimited immigrants" - 07/26/06

... indefinitely. Offered by two Republicans [Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison], the plan is criticized by proponents of stricter immigration laws.

John Fund's Borderline Insanity - 07/24/06

WSJ columnist John Fund offers a heaping load of open borders propaganda in a column appropriately named "Borderline Insanity". The upside to his screed is that many people will realize it for what it is, and that will further reduce his and the WSJ's credibility. He sets out to show that "enforcement-only" won't work, a frequent theme from those who support massive immigration. Of course, he...

Cannon win gives anti-American forces hope - 06/29/06

WASHINGTON - With President Bush's immigration policy surviving fierce criticism in a Utah congressional race, lawmakers on both sides of the debate turned their attention Wednesday to finding a compromise on immigration legislation. Those who oppose Bush's call for immigration reform a

More on Mike Pence's "W" worker visa illegal alien amnesty scheme - 05/25/06

There's more on Rep. Mike Pence's "middle ground" "guest" worker scheme here. Under that scheme private companies would administer the program, vet applicants, and so forth. The things Pence forgot to deal with include: * our "guests" would have U.S. citizen children, meaning they would never leave... * the entire temp agency industry only employs 4 million people now.

Mike Pence's "W" worker visa illegal alien amnesty scheme - 05/23/06

Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) has introduced a "middle-ground" illegal alien amnesty scheme. It seeks to split the difference between the full-on amnesty in the Senate and the supposed only other choice of mass deportations. (As usual, the other choice of simply enforcing our current laws is not mentioned). As Rep. Tom Tancredo says: Pence's plan would require illegal aliens to return to their home...
