MIAMI -March 6, 2019-US Vice President Mike Pence granted his first exclusive interview to a Spanish-language network since taking office to Noticias Telemundo's Washington, D.C. correspondent Cristina Londoo. The interview took place today in Washington, D.C. and covered immigration, the upcoming presidential elections and the crisis in Venezuela, among other subjects of interest to the Hispanic community.

This is a rush transcript and it's subject to change. If you quote the following material please credit "Noticias Telemundo."


CL: The Trump administration has worked really hard and fought tooth and nail to get their campaign promises. One of them was having a heart towards the DACA recipients and the TPS recipients. That side of the promise we have not seen yet. Are they forgotten?

MP: The President and I couldn't be more proud of the progress of the Latino community under this administration. We have cut taxes, rolled back regulation, expanded opportunity for businesses and now more Hispanic Americans are working today than ever before in our nation's history. But the President has also called for reforms of our immigration system. Our immigration system is broken. We have a crisis at our Southern border and the President is going to continue to call on the Congress to support border security, to support his declaration of a national emergency. But once we secure our border, the President has made it very clear that whether it's DACA recipients, TPS, or other issues, that when Congress is ready to actually address the loopholes in our system that human traffickers and drug cartels use to entice vulnerable families to take the long and dangerous journey up to our Southern border, we're ready to make those reforms. We're ready to do that with compassion and commitment to the rule of law, but everything begins with border security.

As the wife of a TPS holder, I find his calling humanitarian programs for vulnerable people loopholes offensive.
