Notre Dame announced Thursday that Vice President Michael Pence will be the commencement speaker on May 21 and will receive an honorary degree. In the past the university’s choice of commencement speakers has sometimes stirred controversy, and this might be no exception.
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence paid a somber visit to the site of the Dachau concentration camp, joined by his wife, Karen, and the couple’s 23-year-old daughter, Charlotte. They were accompanied by Abba Naor, a survivor of the camp, and other dignitaries.
Addressing the hundreds of thousands gathered in Washington, D.C. for the 44th March for Life, Vice President Mike Pence also said that President Donald Trump had asked him to address the rally. “He asked me to thank you for your support, for your stand for life and your compassion for the women and children of America.”
