RED FLAG: More Chinese Migrants Now Crossing San Diego Border Than Mexican Nationals

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.23.24

The number of Chinese migrants crossing the southern border has spiked in recent months. According to new data, more Chinese migrants are crossing in certain areas than Mexican nationals.

From The New York Post:

Since the fiscal year began in October, border agents have encountered 21,000 Chinese nationals in the San Diego sector, according to Customs and Border Protection data obtained by Fox News.

During the same period, border agents only encountered 18,700 Mexicans trying to cross the border into the US in the region.

In fact, the number of Chinese nationals crossing into San Diego was only second to the number of Colombians.

The data points to a growing trend of Chinese nationals trying to flee the communist nation and enter the US illegally.

Over the course of 2023 fiscal year, Customs and Border Protection reported that 24,048 Chinese migrants were apprehended — a record high.

Fox News border correspondent Bill Melugin has been covering the surge in Chinese crossings; he shared the following video on X.

“I can speak Spanish but it’s not doing me a whole lot of good down here. We are getting a massive explosion of Chinese nationals crossing the border,” Melugin says.

“Some from China, others from Turkey, others from Middle Eastern countries. Most of them adults from all around the world.”
