Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday that he still wants Roe v. Wade to be overturned, but declined to say if President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will comply with the campaign promise to do away with the landmark ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

Kavanaugh has not expressed outright opposition to Roe v. Wade, but abortion rights activists are alarmed that it could be on the chopping block if he is confirmed. During the 2016 campaign, Pence said that he hoped to see the ruling end up on "the ash heap of history," while Trump predicted that Roe v. Wade would be overturned "automatically" if he appointed anti-abortion-rights justices to the court.

Pence defends effort to reunite separated families

Pence defended the government's effort to reunite immigrant families separated at the border after Bash pointed out that the administration appeared poised to miss a court deadline to reunite children under the age of 5 with their parents and later asked, "Was there a plan?"

"Of course there's a plan," Pence said. "At times when we prosecute people for entering our country illegally, they're separated from their children for a period of time. Those children are dispatched to relatives or to foster care and we know where they are and there's a plan to reunite them."

CNN has reported that the administration managed to reunite fewer than half of the eligible separated migrant families in its care by a court-imposed deadline on Tuesday -- as the fates of thousands more remain in limbo.
