Chinese migration

Chinese migration to the U.S. has surged, with a record number of 30,000 Chinese individuals arrested for illegal border crossings nationwide since October.

Leaked data

This figure exceeds the total of 24,000 Chinese migrants encountered throughout fiscal year 2023, as reported in leaked Border Patrol data.

Overwhelming surge

Due to the overwhelming surge of Chinese migrants crossing the U.S. border illegally, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has reduced the number of questions asked to Chinese nationals during processing from approximately 40 to just five.

National security concerns

This adjustment aims to expedite processing but raises national security concerns. In fiscal year 2021, only 342 Chinese migrants were encountered at the U.S. border, a stark contrast to the 24,000 individuals arrested in 2023, which exceeded the combined total of Chinese migrants apprehended in the previous decade.

Dispose of passports

The San Diego border region has seen a significant influx of Chinese migrants, overwhelming border agents. Furthermore, reports indicate that many migrants dispose of their passports or ID cards on the Mexican side of the border, complicating efforts by CBP to verify their identities and countries of origin, thereby hindering deportation processes.

Border Protection

Customs and Border Protection has minimized the questions posed to Chinese nationals from approximately 40 to five to accelerate processing amidst the increase in unauthorized border entries.

Economic incentives

Furthermore, many Chinese migrants seem driven by economic incentives rather than escaping severe persecution. A family’s account, after crossing into San Diego, revealed no immediate crises compelling them to depart their country, making asylum claims in the U.S. less justifiable.

Chinese government

The surge in Chinese nationals entering the U.S. raises security apprehensions due to the Chinese government’s history of active infiltration.

Federal investigations

Ongoing federal investigations on Chinese espionage and a report from September highlighted instances of Chinese individuals illicitly accessing military installations and sensitive U.S. locations over 100 times in recent years.

Deportation

Acting ICE chief Patrick J. Lechleitner expressed unease over the sudden rise in Chinese arrivals and mentioned ongoing discussions with China regarding deportation flights.

14 passengers

A recent deportation flight to Shenyang accommodated only 14 passengers, as reported by Thomas Cartwright of Witness at the Border, signaling attempts to address the situation.
