Vice President Pence is a former governor of Indiana and member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Governor Ducey recently joined 25 governors in the creation of the American Governors’ Border Strike Force to help secure the southern border. The governor is also calling on social media companies to step up and take action to protect youth from cartel recruiting messages luring them into transnational human smuggling activity.
