HOUSTON (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to Texas includes spending time with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and talking about the political turmoil and economic crisis in Venezuela.
After arriving Friday, he stopped at a Houston facility for Homeland Security Investigations, a division of ICE, to thank agents for their service.
Pence will also deliver remarks at Rice University’s Baker Institute about the situation in Venezuela. Houston is home to a large Venezuelan immigrant community, as well as CITGO’s corporate headquarters. Pence has called for the release of six of the company’s executives who’ve been jailed in Venezuela.
He’ll later participate in a discussion at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Center in College Station on the vice presidency along with former vice presidents Dick Cheney and Dan Quayle.
