US Secretary of State visits Venezuelan migrants in Colombia

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visits Venezuelan migrants in Colombia as he completes a four-country tour of South America to pressure Venezuela's socialist leader Nicolas Maduro.

Pompeo arrived in a migrant center in the border town of Cucuta on Sunday with Colombian President Ivan Duque. Not far away, Venezuelan security forces sat at the international bridge of Simon Bolivar, which separated the two countries.

The migrant center was the first stop for some of the more than three million Venezuelans who fled hyperinflation and political upheaval in their homeland.

The US was the first of more than 50 nations to recognize opposition leader Juan Guaidó as interim President of Venezuela in January. But significant public support for Guaidó has not eased Maduro's position of power.
