“In this White House, let me be clear, we are with you 100 percent … We will always stand proudly with the brave heroes of ICE and our border patrol,” the Vice President stated.
Pence also said that they will support ICE “without apology with the men and women of ICE and law enforcement at every level.”
The Trump administration has been continuing to support the efforts of ICE, while protests have erupted around the country calling for the agency to close. Many Democrats have called for the abolition of ICE, including Dick Durbin, Elizabeth Warren, and Kristen Gillibrand. (RELATED: SEN. DICK DURBIN CALLS ICE ‘A GROUP OF INCOMPETENTS’)
“The Democrats want open borders, which means lots of crime. We want tough, strong powerful borders, and we want no crime, and we’re going to protect ICE. We protect ICE. They protect us and we protect them,” Trump declared during his rally on Thursday night. (RELATED: TRUMP ON ICE: ‘THEY PROTECT US AND WE PROTECT THEM’)
