Pence, who was a frequent supporter of the Border Patrol during his time in the Trump administration, tweeted on Friday evening pictures of his time in office visiting the southern border and talking to Border Patrol.

Breitbart News had previously reported that in May alone, the Border Patrol apprehensions had jumped almost 700 percent when compared to the same time in 2020 under former President Donald Trump. “Agents apprehended more than 172,000 migrants at the U.S.-Mexico boundary, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials report.”
The report also included, “During Fiscal Year 2021, which began on October 1, 2020, Border Patrol agents apprehended a total of 897,213 migrants,” which is also up from the same period last year when the apprehensions were only at 229,225; that is almost a 300 percent increase.
The rise in apprehensions included “636,892 single adults, 78,513 migrant families, and 181,808 unaccompanied minors.”
