We consider the Markov branching process with immigration allowing the possibility of infinite numbers of offspring and/or immigrants. Our focus is on the construction and uniqueness of the minimal transition function and on its asymptotic behavior. Conditional limit theorems for the population size are given in cases for which the transition function is dishonest.
