Over 700 Chinese Illegals Apprehended at U.S. Border in One Week

A report from U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealed that nearly 700 migrants from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) were apprehended entering California in just one week.

“We have only conducted one repatriation flight back to China recently,” a source familiar with the matter said. “Until that changes, unless we have specific derogatory information about an individual, we are releasing. There’s just no other option.”

The source reportedly told Breitbart Texas the number of Chinese migrants caught represents a more than threefold increase from the same time last year.

Report from Breitbart:

The agency remains baffled by the continued increase in Chinese migrant arrivals. Twice as many PRC nationals entered Southern California during the third week of April than the entire 2021 fiscal year when a total of 342 PRC nationals were encountered by the Border Patrol along the entire Southwest border. According to the source, intelligence debriefings yield little information about the migrants and their purpose for entering. The language barrier and the sheer volume of crossings and apprehensions is a major challenge according to the source.

As the incursion of 700 Chinese nationals into Southern California was underway last week, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned national security and intelligence experts on Thursday about the threats posed by China. During his remarks at the Vanderbilt Summit on Modern Conflict and Emerging Threats in Nashville, Wray told the crowd, “The PRC [People’s Republic of China] has made it clear that it considers every sector that makes our society run as fair game in its bid to dominate on the world stage, and that its plan is to land low blows against civilian infrastructure to try to induce panic and break America’s will to resist.”
