'What are they planning?' Illegal Chinese migration surges at the southern U.S. border

JACUMBA HOT SPRINGS, CA - The southern border of the United States has experienced a significant increase in illegal migration recently.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data, over 2.5 million instances of detaining or turning away people attempting to illegally cross into the U.S. from Mexico were recorded last year. Among the illegal migrants, Chinese nationals have become the fastest-growing group.

In the San Diego sector, over 180 Chinese illegal aliens were apprehended in a single day, contributing to a total of 22,000 Chinese nationals caught by border patrol since October 1.

National correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC) based out of the Los Angeles bureau, Bill Melugin, emphasizes that "apprehended doesn’t mean deported."

The breach in the border wall in Jacumba, east San Diego county, has facilitated illegal crossings, with February witnessing an invasion from 73 different countries within one week.

Concerns have been raised about individuals on the terror watchlist exploiting the porous border.

Sharyn Alfonsi of CBS’ 60 Minutes said, “Thirty minutes later, a smuggler's SUV raced along the border fence and dropped another group at the same spot. And 30 minutes after that…. another group. At one point this armed Border Patrol agent standing 25 feet away…. did not deter them.”

In contrast, Texas has fortified its border security under Governor Abbott's leadership. The Texas National Guard has installed razor wire and fences in the El Paso sector to prevent unauthorized entries.

Illegal Chinese immigrants often embark on extensive journeys spanning multiple countries to reach the U.S. An illegal crosser shared a journey that took him through Thailand, Morocco, Ecuador, and several other countries before reaching the U.S.

Many illegal aliens cited reasons such as escaping China's repressive political climate and economic challenges as motivations for their migration.

Social media platforms like TikTok have become sources of information for illegals seeking entry into the U.S. Step-by-step instructions for hiring smugglers and directions to specific entry points are shared on these platforms.

Historically, millions of Chinese nationals entered the U.S. on temporary visas. However, the number of visas granted to Chinese nationals has decreased in recent years due to escalating tensions between the U.S. and China.

As a result, many cross illegally and allegedly seek asylum as an alternative route to enter and stay in the U.S.

Jacumba Hot Springs, California, has become a focal point for this wave of illegal migration.

Jerry Shuster, a 75-year-old retiree who owns land near the border fence, has witnessed thousands of illegal aliens passing through his property weekly. Despite the challenges posed by this influx, Shuster has called for comprehensive solutions to address the root causes of migration.

CBP acknowledges the need to address gaps in border security. However, implementing effective measures requires congressional funding.

In February, a Chinese illegal immigrant apprehended in the San Diego sector admitted he was in the U.S. to "take the money."

There's a storm coming, & it seems that a large percentage of our "leaders" are either blind to it or just don't care. There is also a large number of our citizens that are also wearing blinders on if they don't see what is happening, both by our leaders/politicians/justice system etc & by our enemies taking advantage to prepare for an event.
