269 Chinese Illegal Immigrants Reportedly Apprehended At US-Mexico Border

With illegal immigration on the rise in the U.S. because of President Joe Biden’s lax border policies, San Diego Border Patrol agents recently reported a massive number of Chinese individuals at the southern border in a single day.

Border Patrol agents reported that 269 Chinese illegal immigrants were apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The figure excludes those who managed to evade detainment and enter the U.S.

The Daily Mail reported that Chinese nationals comprise the largest demographic of unlawful migrants trying to pour across the southern border.
Since fiscal year 2024, which began in October 2023, more than 20,000 Chinese unlawful migrants were apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border, marking a stark increase compared to 2021, when such a figure stood at only 342.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, Fox News host Bill Melugin reported on the unlawful Chinese border crossings, writing, “NEW: Per CBP source, Border Patrol’s San Diego sector apprehended 269 Chinese nationals who crossed illegally yesterday.”

“More than 200,000 Chinese nationals have now been encountered by CBP in FY’24 so far.

For perspective, there were only 450 Chinese encountered in all of FY’21,” Melugin added.

The recent development comes after the head of the U.S. Border Patrol warned that his agents are being overwhelmed by the surge in Chinese illegal immigration, fearing that the Biden administration’s watering down of the vetting process could pave the way for communist spies to enter America.

In September 2023, during testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee, Chief Border Patrol Agent Anthony Good of the agency’s El Paso, Texas, Sector told Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) that his agents were “trying their best to figure out why [individuals from other continents are] coming” to the U.S.

Green blamed Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for the disaster at the southern border, saying that he has made it “clear to the entire world that our borders are open.”

“While it is true that some individuals may be seeking relief from authoritarian regimes, there is no way for our brave men and women on the frontlines of this crisis to adequately vet all of them before being effectively forced to release them—particularly when countries like China won’t allow us access to their various law enforcement databases,” Green added.
