An increasing number of Chinese nationals are undertaking the perilous journey to cross the U.S. southern border. Their motivations are diverse and complex, ranging from seeking better life opportunities to escaping political oppression. However, amidst this influx, concerns have arisen about the presence of military-age males with potentially sinister intentions.
The migration pattern has shifted dramatically. Previously, routes were dominated by Cubans and Haitians; now, Chinese nationals, often following a social media playbook, make this dangerous trek. They surrender to U.S. border control, endure detention, and apply for asylum. This exodus reflects a broader critique of Xi Jinping’s governance and its implications for personal and economic freedom.
However, alongside these stories of desperation and hope, there is a growing concern about the motives of some migrants, particularly military-age males. Experts like Gordon Chang, a senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute, warn of potential saboteurs among these groups. This suspicion is fueled by their often unaccompanied status and reluctance to speak English, raising red flags about their intentions.
U.S. border authorities have noted a significant increase in Chinese migrants. In fiscal year 2023, over 24,000 Chinese migrants were detained at the southern border, a stark rise from previous years. This surge includes not just the impoverished but also the middle class, indicating widespread discontent within China.
For those of us with a military or intelligence background it is easy to contemplate that thousands of these Chinese illegals could be an sleeping army of terror, that could be awakened by the Chinese Communist Party in the event of an outbreak of hostilities where the U.S. is on the other side.
As an example of the tactic, we see a new breakout of war in Israel, some say instigated by Iran, and which is likely being directed by China. The new war in Israel is a distraction for the U.S. and has cause a loss of support for Ukraine against Russia, a war the China cares more about.
Think about the kind of distraction it would be if China were to attack Taiwan, but simultaneously launch several thousand illegal immigrant soldiers into terrorism, protests and much more. This is not only a reasonable scenario, but a likely one, given China’s recent rhetoric, its penchant for planning treachery in advance and the easy ability of these kinds of soldiers to get into the U.S.
This is another example of the Biden Administration’s lack of will in protecting our southern borders and our country in general. Scary.
