House GOP To Probe Surge In Chinese Illegal Immigration

The House Homeland Security Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Accountability is gearing up for a significant hearing next week to address a startling uptick in Chinese illegal immigration.

Titled “Security Risk: The Unprecedented Surge in Chinese Illegal Immigration,” the hearing is scheduled for May 16 at the House Cannon building.

Among the key witnesses slated to testify are Simon Hankinson from the Heritage Foundation, Todd Bonsman representing the Center for Immigration Studies, and Craig Singleton from the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

In a staggering revelation, data indicates that since March 2021, there has been a staggering 8,000% increase in Chinese illegal immigration to the United States. Border agents have encountered over 24,000 Chinese nationals along the southern border in the current fiscal year, with a notable proportion being military-aged men.

A recent report exposed that in April 2023, the Biden administration directed US Customs and Border Protection to expedite their vetting process for Chinese migrants, a decision believed to have fueled the surge in arrivals.

Chairman of the Subcommittee, Representative Dan Bishop, underscored the national security implications of an open border, stating to the Daily Caller, “A wide-open border presents a ripe opportunity for the [Chinese Communist Party] to undermine our national security.”

Bishop stressed the necessity for scrutiny, particularly in light of directives instructing Border Patrol agents to reduce vetting procedures for Chinese nationals to hasten their entry into the country. He emphasized the need to assess the risks posed by releasing growing numbers of minimally-vetted Chinese nationals into American communities.

Former Border Patrol agent Ammon Blair, in an interview with the outlet, likened the situation during the surge of Chinese illegal immigrants to a scene from “Red Dawn,” expressing apprehensions that current administration policies are paving a “Silk Road” for US adversaries.

Blair raised concerns about the complicity of the administration’s policies in facilitating what he perceives as an invasion by the Chinese Communist Party, with embedded threats ranging from cyber warfare to drug trade via Mexican cartel proxies and economic destabilization.
