(KNX 1070) -- Vice President Mike Pence delivered a pep talk this morning to the nation's 20,000 ICE agents during a visit to the agency's headquarters in Washington D.C.

His speech was relayed to all ICE offices. He blasted the approach of some Democrats to abolish the department. 

“We are with you 100 percent,” Pence said. “We will always stand proudly with our brave heroes of Ice and the Border Patrol... Under President Trump, we will never abolish ICE.”

 Pence said increasing public criticism of the agency was putting officers and their families at risk, asserting that the agency was being "attacked and demeaned... at an unprecedented rate."

"These attacks against ICE officers and their families must stop and must stop now," he said.
