Look carefully at where it's broke, it's on the 'beam' that carries the front jaw. That being the case as you tighten down on the vice the force of the jaws closing together will create a force that wants to pull that piece apart, not push it together. In other words the resulting force of clamping something puts that area it in a state of tension, not compression. That being the case, that area needs to be one of the stronger spots on the vice to handle that much force being exerted on it. Even so, a properly brazed joint, or a joint torch welded with cast rod like George does, should stand up to the load since either repair, in theory, should be as strong, or stronger than the origional part.
