‘I Am an American Because of Him’: The Journey of Pence’s Grandfather From Ireland

March 16, 2017 Sheryl Gay Stolberg wrote an article for the NY Times entitled "'I Am an American
Because of Him’: The Journey of Pence’s Grandfather From Ireland." The article which was published on St. Patrick's Day explored Pence's Irish immigrant family history. His grandfather Richard Michael Cawley who came from a poor Irish family fled guerrilla warfare in Ireland for the opportunities and freedom in America.

Pence has always spoken glowingly and proudly of his Irish heritage and grandfather who struggled to come to America and succeeded. At the same time while Governor of Indiana Mike Pence tried to bar Syrian refugees from his state. As Vice President Pence continues to try to bar refugees fleeing oppressive and war torn countries from coming to America. Stolberg's article really showed the hypocrisy that is Mike Pence.

After reading the article I decided to do a little more digging into Mike Pence's family tree. How "American" and/or "Irish" is he? As you can see from the image above many members of his family were born in Ireland. Most though not all of those immigrated to the US.  Mike Pence is only second generation American.

I previously wrote an article about Donald Trump's lineage. Trump is also only second generation American. I also have Irish ancestry. My Irish Cummins family came here in the 1600's landing in Virginia. My English Cobb family also landed here in the 1600's in Virginia. Pence and Trump both have major issues with immigrants and refugees yet their own ancestors more recently fled their countries during war time. You'd think they'd both have some compassion for these refugees especially when you consider that American actions partially caused the wars in those regions.

Trump's family history is even worse. Trump's grandfather Friederich Trump 1869-1918 fled Germany to avoid service in the war. When he tried to return to Germany he was denied for that reason. Trump then returned to the US. This means Friederich Trump was less than honest on his application for entrance and naturalization papers. This is probably why Trump had no problem stating he had bone spurs in order to dodge the draft.

Pence's family helped other Irish family members come to America. Pence and Trump both love immigration when it's their own family. They just don't want any other immigrants to come to the US. They both give the excuse of fear of "radical Islamic terrorism" but that's not their real issue. None of the 9/11 terrorists came from any of the travel ban countries. Pence and Trump only want European looking immigrants like themselves. They are racists against people of color and Muslims. This makes me embarrassed to be an American today when our leaders are such morally bereft people.
