It still pales in comparison with the number of Latinos and, yes, even Mid-Easterner, that try to come here illegally. But we’re seeing a disturbing increase in the number of Chinese illegal aliens attempting to sneak in from Mexico at the Southern Arizona border.
Why are they coming here? Is it because they seek freedom from Communism and the chance at a better life . . . or because they are Communists who want to do us harm? Since U.S. Customs and Border Patrol is catching a good number of these Chinese, that’s a pretty good indication that some sneaked in undetected, too, and are here in our midst.
Several groups of illegal immigrants from China have been arrested in southern Arizona in recent days, part of an increasing trend that U.S. Border Patrol agents said Monday was being fed by smugglers recruiting tourists to Central and South America.
The arrests included two Chinese found among a large group of migrants who entered the county from Mexico on Friday. Three more Chinese were found Saturday, a group that included four Chinese was captured Sunday and four more were arrested early Monday.
All were discovered close to the border near Nogales, Ariz.
The Border Patrol has seen a small but significant rise in the number of Chinese caught after entering Arizona from Mexico, agent Colleen Agle said. Between Oct. 1, 2008, and the end of August, agents captured 261 illegal immigrants from China in the patrol’s Tucson sector in southern Arizona.
Just 30 Chinese were caught in the same area during the federal fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2008.
Why the increase in Chinese now? What do you think this means? What is their mission here?
