Vice President Mike Pence was the special guest today on Michael Savage’s radio show, where the far-right talk show host urged Pence to place strict limits on both legal and unlawful immigration before the U.S. turns into “a one-party state” like California.
Savage, a radical conspiracy theorist who frequently spoke with Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign and recently met with him at Mar-a-Lago, rejoiced that Trump is “talking about all the things that I’ve lived for all these years,” particularly the need—as he sees it—to crack down on immigration.
“Unless we stop the flood of massive numbers of new people who come into this country legally or illegally who almost always vote Democrat, we’ll never ever have a Republican administration,” Savage said. “It will be just like California, which is a one-party state. I truly believe that if I can send one message to yourself and the president, yeah, the security of the nation, sure, but it’s all connected to illegal immigration, I think you all know that by the way.”
Pence agreed that the administration knows this—indeed, Trump made a similar statement last year—and praised Savage for being “in the forefront of a call for decisive action in this country to end illegal immigration,” before vowing to “end illegal immigration once and for all.”
