Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace to discuss how Vice President Harris is handling the border crisis. According to Pompeo, “the conditions down there are no different today than they were in January of this year.”
“And we’ve had multiples and multiples of people come across the border,” Pompeo told Wallace. “So it’s not the conditions down there that caused the current crisis at the border, it’s the policies of the Biden administration.”
Meanwhile, the former secretary of state was able to negotiate with Central American countries regarding their emigration. “The first responsibility is to keep our southern borders secure,” Pompeo said. We had it done. We got there.” During his term, there were 600 to 900 percent fewer encounters at the border.
“Don’t take my word for it,” he went on. “This week the Mexican leadership and Guatemalan leadership says this is a direct result of the Biden policies.” Guatemalan President Giammattei reiterated this sentiment in an interview with Sara Carter that same week.
“It’s simple math,” Pompeo said. “180,000 in May is the highest in 20 years. This is a result of a bad border policy. It’s created a crisis . . . It’s not only bad for [the trafficked migrants], it’s really bad for the United States and it’s not a result of what’s happening in Central America.”

Migrants sick of waiting, surge border after judge temporarily blocks Biden from revoking Title 42
Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted recently, on May 17, that agents under his command apprehended 2,849 migrants last weekend. However, as migrants no longer want to wait for Title 42 to end, they have surged the border.
In a Breitbart exclusive, the media outlet reported the “number will be eclipsed as it appears the total could approach 4,000 this weekend.” Unfortunately, “the migrants did not appear to know or understand that the Title 42 will not end on Monday due to a federal court order. They expressed they were simply tired of waiting” the report adds.
Between April 1st and May 15 of this year, approximately 513,000 migrants illegally crossed the southern border.
Breitbart notes “whether Title 42 ends or not, migrants say they are tired of waiting and surged across the Rio Grande into the Eagle Pass, Texas, area of operations. As many as 3,600 crossed so far this weekend — eclipsing last weekend’s total of just over 2,800 migrant apprehensions in the Del Rio Sector — according to a source operating within U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”
In just a couple of hours on Sunday evening, agents apprehended more than 700 migrants. Agents identified majority of the migrants as Honduran nationals, and some as Colombian.
One source told Breitbart resources were not available to transport migrants from the border to the processing station. It also appears the NGOs who regularly shelter the migrants are overloaded as migrants are reportedly being dropped off at an Eagle Pass Stripes convenience store.
“The crossings are not without danger. On Saturday, seven migrants were swept off their feet in the middle of the night forcing Border Patrol agents to jump into action to save their lives” Breitbart Texas reported. Those seven were lucky, whereas the bodies of three migrants were recovered at the Del Rio Sector.
