269 Chinese Migrants Illegally Crossed Border In One Day

While the border crisis exacerbated by President Joe Biden’s immigration agenda is nothing new, troubling details continue to surface regarding the invasion of Chinese nationals across the nation’s porous southern border.

According to the latest figures released by Customs and Border Protection, 269 Chinese nationals were encountered by border agents during one 24-hour period this week. Putting the staggering rate into perspective, the total number of such CBP apprehensions in just two recent days was more than all encounters of Chinese migrants reported throughout the 2021 fiscal year.

There have been more than 20,000 recorded illegal crossings by Chinese nationals since Oct. 1, with the vast majority using the border’s San Diego sector.

This particularly active section of the border has recorded more than 95,000 migrant encounters since October, nearly twice the 53,000 reported during the same period the previous year.

Given the current international tensions as well as the Chinese Communist Party’s clear intentions to spy on the United States, border security experts and lawmakers have been sounding the alarm about the potential ramifications of the ongoing influx.

Fox News quoted one CBP official who advised: “It’s just as important to focus on what’s in the flow as opposed to how large the flow is from a national security perspective.”

National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd issued a similar warning, noting that most of the Chinese migrants entering the U.S. are military-age males.

“This is a very scary prospect,” he said. “We know that China does not like us; we know that we are in the crosshairs of China. “And they are exporting so many people to our country, and you have to really fear about that.”

U.S. Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R-FL) has been sounding the alarm for months, responding in October to the arrival of 17 Chinese nationals via boat on the shore of Key Largo, which is in the district he represents.

“Nothing surprises me now with the Biden administration,” the Florida Republican said at the time.

His concerns were similar to those of Judd, adding: “Now why you have these mostly men, military-age men, from China trying to get into the United States, sneak into the United States, that kind of worries me.”
