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.

I like Joe Biden but

He really needs to made some amends regarding the drug war and his role in it. He also needs to call for an immediate end to federal marijuana prohibition.

Do you think he will end up being indicted for something?

Years from now.

When a movie is made, who would you cast in the main rolls. Pick anyone, living or dead and we will have a few laughs

Here are a few of my picks:
Donald Trump - Rodney Dangerfield would have been great
Jarrad Kushner - Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper)
Ivanka - Reese Witherspoon maybe

Who else?

Harris County jury returns verdict for husband of fired deputy in diner choking case

Source: Houston Chronicle

A Harris County jury Monday convicted the husband of a former county deputy of murder in the high-profile death of a young Houston father who was fatally choked at a Crosby-area Denny’s.

Terry Thompson, 42, who faces up to life in prison, was convicted of murdering 24-year-old John Hernandez last year after placing him a chokehold that left him brain dead.

Jurors spent 12 hours deliberating Thompson's guilt, and rejected his defense team's contention he was acting in self-defense. They deliberated seven hours Friday and returned Monday morning to continue.

It is the second time the notorious case has gone to trial. In June, the first trial ended in a mistrial after a hung jury was unable to reach a verdict

Finally, this case begged for justice. The victim was 5'7" and weighed 127 pounds. The murderer was a bodybuilder and weighed at least 250 lbs.
