Foreign Influence: Chinese Illegal Aliens Come to Our Border Without Any Vetting, Yet They Are Released

{snip} The biggest threat is the large number of Chinese aliens coming in, thanks to the lack of a full border wall and more aggressive use of the military at the border. {snip}

“Chinese nationals are coming to our border in increasing numbers with absolutely no way to vet them and they are all allowed into our country as legitimate asylees,” said one veteran agent who patrols the Rio Grande Valley Sector in an interview with CR.

“This is the biggest national security, espionage, and cybersecurity threat to our nation that policymakers in Washington are completely ignoring,” said the agent who must remain anonymous because he is active duty and is not authorized to speak to the media.


Based on data from weekly Texas border apprehension reports that CR has been given by an agent in the field, a total of 118 Chinese nationals have been apprehended just in Texas during the first two weeks of September.

This is a pace of over 3,000 Chinese nationals coming through the border just in Texas alone under very suspicious circumstances every year. Last year, according to CBP, 991 were caught at the entire southwest border, plus another 86 at the northern and maritime borders.


“Every Chinese alien I’ve encountered has run from us rather than surrendering,” said the Texas border agent. “Then they claim asylum. But if they are trying to claim asylum, why are they running? Why are they overwhelmingly male if they are fleeing persecution? Also, after they fly into Brazil, they ditch their documents and come with nothing on them but cash. Lots of cash. They are also wearing fancy clothes like Gucci. They are coordinating their trafficking already overseas and some are paying the cartels along with other smuggling entities as much as $70,000. These are wealthy people.”


What is astounding is that we treat them as asylees despite the suspicious circumstances and the lack of vetting.

“We share nothing with China, so they can just make up a name and we have no way of checking into them,” said the agent who also worked in evidence collection at the station for several years. “We literally have no idea who they are before we release them. They just give us a random name a birthdate and we have no way of verifying it. None of those from China are in the system and they certainly don’t share criminal histories with us. All of them are released into the asylum system.”

{snip} They know we are gullible enough to treat those coming from China as “fleeing communism,” even though we have no idea of knowing if the government is sending them.

The scary thing is that not only is China our top cybersecurity threat, but much of the hacking now comes from within the United States. Now, we don’t have evidence it’s coming from those who cross the border because we also bizarrely bring in a tremendous amount of them through our visa system and on green cards. But those coming through the border have absolutely no vetting.

Shockingly, China is not listed as one of the 35 or so “Special Interest Alien” countries, whose border crossers require more vetting. For example, if an Iranian national is caught at the border, they are automatically interrogated by the FBI. That is not the case for Chinese nationals. Often, agents will be forced to rely on a private translating service to even interview Chinese nationals because few agents are fluent enough in Mandarin.

As it is, we hand out roughly 70,000 to 85,000 green cards to Chinese national every year, more than to nationals of any country other than Mexico. In addition, we have, by far, more foreign students from China than from any country. In fact, 363,341 Chinese nationals were here on student visas for the 2017/2018 academic year, roughly one third of the growing total of over 1 million foreign students every year.

Chinese immigrants have been very productive for the most part, but how in the world could we possibly vet these people and be sure that the Chinese have not either initially sent any of them as operatives or is manipulating those they know are here studying technical fields with bribes and threats to their relatives back home. {snip}


Now consider how bad it has to be for them to send people to our border given how generously we hand out visas. The fact that wealthy, young Chinese nationals can easily get a student visa but come through our border and then run from agents should scare us all.

And we haven’t even discussed the birth tourism scam of Chinese nationals giving birth to babies here while on tourist visas and grabbing citizenship for their kids thanks to liberals insisting that our Constitution somehow mandates this national suicide. {snip}


That should include closing all the insane immigration loopholes as well as deploying our military in a meaningful way at our border. We are essentially as a state of cold war with China and immigration is a very dangerous pipeline through which they can direct asymmetrical attacks on us. Never in our history did we continue mass migration – both through visas and at the border – from countries that were at war with us.
