Border Patrol officials informed lawmakers that smugglers charge Chinese illegal immigrants up to $60,000 to enter the United States unlawfully.

The average cost for entry is estimated at around $8,600, but it can reach $60,000 for those coming from China.

Human smuggling and trafficking have become lucrative businesses for criminal organizations, with an estimated $30 million weekly income from trafficking and smuggling operations in the Del Rio sector alone.

The cartels exert heavy control over the southern border, resorting to violence and even murder to maintain their dominance.

Border Patrol agents suggested detaining everyone to deter illegal immigration and emphasized the effectiveness of border walls in reducing unauthorized crossings.

“It costs more to go through an area that has a better chance of getting away,” said Aaron Heitke, the Chief Patrol Agent for the San Diego sector.

Tucson Sector Chief Patrol Agent John Modlin said, “I think optimally, other than the rare occasion where you have someone with a crazy medical condition, everyone should be detained. And that, to me, is the most obvious way to not encourage illegal immigration, is everyone’s held until they have a hearing.”

El Centro Chief Patrol Agent Gregory Bovino said, “In many of those areas now, where there is border wall, we see very little vehicular incursions across the desert between ports of entry, and a decrease in pedestrian crossings at the border, especially where the 33-foot wall exists.”

Despite the record number of illegal immigrant encounters at the southern border, President Joe Biden has denied the existence of a crisis.
