Shocking Discovery Made at California-Mexico Border
A group of smartly dressed Chinese migrants have been apprehended in California after illegally crossing the southern border. The group, composed mostly of Chinese nationals fleeing authoritarian leader Xi Jinping, were photographed in neat lines with pristine luggage as they were processed following their illegal entry. This latest surge in Chinese migrants comes as President Biden grapples with a growing humanitarian and political crisis at the border.
According to news sources, the group of migrants was spotted near the San Diego County town of Jacumba Hot Springs. The county is currently debating the approval of millions of dollars in emergency funding to help shelter and process these migrants. The increase in Chinese nationals attempting to cross the southern border has been staggering. In the past fiscal year alone, over 24,000 Chinese citizens were apprehended at the Mexico border, a significant increase from just 323 the year before.
This trend has caught the attention of Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who noted the dangers posed by these illegal crossings. Governor Abbott stated that there are not just Chinese nationals, but also people from known terrorist watch lists crossing the border, creating an “extraordinary danger” for the country. He also criticized President Biden for his open border policies and stated that Texas is taking “extraordinary steps” to crack down on illegal immigration.
In California, the migrant surge is forcing the government to consider spending millions on additional facilities to house these individuals. The San Diego County Board of Supervisors is voting on Tuesday on a bill that would allocate an additional $3 million for migrant facilities, on top of the $3 million that has already been spent since September. However, the situation is not unique to California, as many other states are also struggling to cope with the influx of migrants from China and other countries.

The increasing number of migrants from China can be attributed to the strict pandemic restrictions and lockdowns imposed by the Chinese government, which has led to an economic downturn and shattered confidence in the ruling Communist Party. Many of the Chinese asylum-seekers state that they are escaping an increasingly repressive political climate and bleak economic prospects.
According to the Associated Press, the migrants are using a dangerous and relatively new route through Panama’s Darién Gap jungle. This route has become increasingly popular thanks to social media platforms, where posts and videos provide step-by-step guidance on how to cross from China to the US. The journey involves traveling through multiple countries, including several Central American nations, before reaching the US border. Videos on these platforms provide tips on what to pack, how to survive in the jungle, and even how to bribe authorities in different countries.
The Chinese government’s response to this trend has been to ramp up censorship and crack down on those promoting illegal immigration. However, the increasing number of Chinese nationals attempting to escape their country is a clear indication of the desperation and hopelessness felt by many in China. This is not just an issue for the US but also a reflection of the political and economic struggles facing China. As the crisis at the border continues to grow, it remains to be seen how the US government will address this pressing issue.
