“The president and I are determined to work with the Congress to fully fund the wall, to build the entire wall,” said Vice President Pence, “but we have to fix our immigration system.”

The money raised at Monday’s roundtable discussion will benefit “Protect the House,” a fundraising partnership that includes Pence’s Leadership PAC and the National Republican Congressional Committee to benefit 20 Republican House members thought to be “vulnerable” in this year’s upcoming mid-term elections.
