Welcome to BAN Amnesty Now

B.A.N. – Ban Amnesty Now – is a national, conservative research and educational organization. Our mission is to unite Americans behind stopping federal, state or local governments from enacting policies granting Amnesty to illegal aliens residing in the United states, and to promoting policies which support securing the U.S. border.

B.A.N.’s daily operations are run by a dedicated team led by Senator Russell Pearce, President, primarily out of our Phoenix, Arizona-area office.

A ‘blue slip’ for amnesty
The Washington Times  |  by  |  Tuesday, July 16, 2013
Rep. Steve Stockman, Texas Republican, is pushing House Speaker John A.

Marco Rubio's immigration flip-flop could spell political trouble
The Washington Examiner  |  by Byron York  |  Tuesday, June 25, 2013
After denouncing comprehensive reform in his 2010 senate victory, he has done a somersault of Romneyesque proportions, to the chagrin of the GOP base. When Mitt Romney ran as a strongly pro-choice Republican candidate for governor of Massachusetts in 2002, and then ran as a strongly pro-life candidate for the GOP presidential nomination just a few years later, he sowed doubts about his consistency that damaged his chances to win higher office. And not just with Republicans for whom abortion is a defining issue; a complete 180 on a matter of such consequence raised questions about Romney's core beliefs on everything. He never fully recovered. Read More...

Pro-amnesty Republicans still in denial over immigration and the welfare state
The Washington Examiner  |  by Conn Carroll  |  Friday, May 31, 2013
The response from pro-amnesty Republicans has so far amounted to, “Don’t worry about the cost of amnesty to American taxpayers. We’ll reform all those big government entitlement programs later.” Read More...
