ICYMI: President Trump Honors ICE and Border Patrol Agents at the White House

Speaking from the White House Monday afternoon, President Trump honored the men and women working for Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 

"We’re here today to salute the incredibly brave patriots who keep America safe, the heroes of ICE and Border Patrol. To everyone here today from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Customs and Border Protection, I want to you let you know that we love you, we support you, we will always have your back, and I think you know that," Trump said. "Everyone here today understands a vital truth: that America is a land of opportunity because we are a nation of laws.  For America to be a strong nation, we must have strong borders."

During the event, the White House sent out a series of tweets detailing the work federal immigration agents do to keep America safe.

ICE has come under fire in recent months by the left, with politicians calling for the abolishment of the federal law enforcement agency.
