what to expect from the upcoming pence administration

A lot of Americans are asking: What will a Pence Administration look like? He’ll be sworn in any day now,  so it is important to get ready. I’ve lived in the great state of Indiana for thirteen years and here is what I’ve learned about the 46th President:

As with any soon-to-be President, I want to give Mr. Pence the benefit of the doubt. I urge him to steer the Republican party from it’s nationalist state and reform the immigration system. Already, it’s rumored that he’ll reverse the Department of Education’s recent decision to de-fund Spanish classes and require Russian for high school seniors. That’s a good start.

  1. As a fellow Hoosier, I want to push back on the specific example you chose for the second bullet point. Pence accepted federal money for refugee resettlement and then refused to use it to help Syrian families because he thought they posed a threat to Indiana residents: http://www.npr.org/2016/10/03/496466007/federal-court-blocks-gov-pences-attempt-to-block-syrian-refugees-from-indiana. He might think that was consistent with his earlier comment because he didn’t see his policy as rooted in offensive discrimination, but a federal court disagreed.

  2. Thanks, Jessica. Future President Pence does not have a good record on refugees and that simply prejudice and discrimination. We need to keep people informed about actions like this so when he takes office in a few weeks, people won’t be in the dark and we can keep the pressure on.
