As a caravan of migrants makes its way to the U.S.-Mexico border, Vice President Mike Pence would not rule out the option of closing down the border ahead of the midterm elections, he told ABC News in an exclusive interview.
When asked if President Trump is considering an executive order to stop all immigration at the border, Pence said: “What we need to do is secure our border. The president will take steps to do that. But we also need to reform our laws.”
