Trending Now

In a candid discussion this Sunday, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did not hold back his critique of President Biden's immigration policies, describing them as "deeply dangerous" for the nation.

During an interview with John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM's "Cats Roundtable," Pompeo voiced his concerns over the handling of the current migrant influx and the broader implications for U.S. security and electoral integrity.

A Controversial Stance on Immigration and Asylum

Pompeo criticized the Biden administration for what he perceives as a lax approach to immigration, particularly pointing out the process that allows migrants to schedule asylum appointments without stringent follow-up measures once they enter the U.S.

This critique comes in the wake of Biden's address to Congress where the president expressed frustration over the lack of support for a border deal.

The proposed package aimed to bolster the number of border patrol agents and immigration judges to expedite the asylum process.

The Debate Over Noncitizen Voting Rights

Diving deeper into the contentious issue of immigration, Pompeo highlighted a recent challenge by the New York City Council against a ruling that deemed a local law, allowing noncitizens to vote, unconstitutional.

He labeled the attempt to permit noncitizen voting as "deeply unconstitutional" and contrary to American traditions, stressing the importance of preserving the integrity of the path to citizenship and voting rights.

Political Power Play?

Pompeo suggested that beyond humanitarian concerns, there might be political motivations behind the Democrat Party's immigration policies.

He argued that enabling a lax border control could be seen as a strategy to secure political power for decades to come.

"I think the only logical explanation is that they believe that this will give them the power and the capacity to control the country for decades ahead," Pompeo stated, highlighting a significant concern over the potential political ramifications of current immigration policies.

Security Concerns and the Threat of Terrorism

Expressing grave concerns about national security, Pompeo warned of the risks associated with not thoroughly vetting individuals entering the U.S.

He raised the specter of terrorist attacks similar to those on September 11, 2001, and the recent attack by Hamas on Israel, suggesting that the current border policy might inadvertently facilitate the entry of dangerous actors into the U.S.
