Vice President Mike Pence threw the full support of the White House behind the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency this week; saying the Trump administration is “is with you 100 percent.”
Pence was speaking at ICE headquarters Friday when he called-out liberal legislators’ growing demands to out-right abolish the federal agency; hailing the agents as “brave heroes” who help protect the nation’s borders.
“While I stand before you today at a time when some people are actually calling for the abolition of ICE, in this White House let me be clear we are with you 100 percent,” said the Vice President. “And as the president said last night we will always stand proudly with the brave heroes of ICE and Border Patrol.”
“Calls to abolish ICE are an insult to these heroic law enforcement officers who make sacrifices every day to secure our borders, enforce our laws, and protect our safety and security,” added a White House press release.

BEHAR GOES NUCLEAR: The View Host Calls Pence’s CHRISTIAN FAITH a ‘Mental Illness’
Left-leaning comedian Joy Behar viciously attacked Vice President Mike Pence’s faith on Tuesday, equating his faith to a “mental illness” and mocking the former Governor of Indiana’s steadfast belief in the power of prayer.
The comic’s intolerant rant began after ‘The View’ played a clip of former White House adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman discussing the Vice President’s faith, where she baselessly claimed on reality television that “Jesus tells him to say things.”
“He’s not very popular at all,” said cohost Sunny Hostin. “I think when you have a Mike Pence who now sort of puts this religious veneer on things and calls people ‘values voters,’ I think we’re in a dangerous situation.”
“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you,” added Behar. “That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct, he’s hearing voices.”

GAME OVER: Pence CALLS OUT NFL During Fiery CPAC Speech
Vice President Mike Pence delivered a fiery speech before the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference -commonly referred to as CPAC- Thursday morning, saying 2017 was the “most consequential year” for the conservative moment and blasting the NFL after months of players disrespecting the national anthem.
“It is great to be back at CPAC and I stand here today with profound gratitude to say that because of all of you, because of the conservative majorities in Congress you’ve helped elect, and because of the strong leadership in the President you put in the White House, 2017 was the most consequential year in the history of the conservative movement,” said the Vice President.
“I’m here because I stand with President Trump. I’m here because we stand with the conservative moment. Come to think of it, we always stand for our flag and our national anthem as well,” added Pence.
The crowd immediately broke out in applause, with CPAC audience members chanting U-S-A after the Vice President’s not-so-subtle jab at the NFL.
The President has been an outspoken critic of the National Football League; urging a nationwide boycott after “disgraceful” players repeatedly “took a knee” during the performance of the US national anthem.
