328 Chinese nationals caught trying to illegally enter US at the southern border

The Daily Sheeple – by Sean Walton

At least 328 Chinese nationals trying to enter the United States illegally since January have been intercepted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials as part of heightened awareness on the borders to block the coronavirus from slipping into the nation.

Officials told Secrets Wednesday that since January, 328 Chinese were “apprehended” and sent back across the border or repatriated consistent with existing policy and procedure. Another three from South Korea, where the virus is also spreading, were also caught.

Some 227 foreign nationals from other nations who tried to enter through legal border points from Feb. 2 through March 3 have been turned away due to the travel restriction ordered by the president and implemented by the Department of Homeland Security, officials said.

The White House previously announced travel restrictions for China, saying the U.S. would keep out any foreign national who’s been in China within 14 days.

Several agencies within the DHS have been enlisted into President Trump’s “whole of government” attack on the virus, and more than 700 officials have been deployed to the effort.

Senior administration officials said that the president’s three-year focus on the border, the new wall, and the policy of keeping illegal immigrants in Mexico while awaiting permission to enter the U.S., have gone a long way to keep the virus away, especially at the southern border.

But acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf on Tuesday raised concerns about a court challenge to the Migrant Protection Protocols policy of keeping migrants in Mexico, where the coronavirus has also landed.

“MPP has an uncertain future. We know from experience that the journey to the U.S. border puts migrants in poor conditions — and they often arrive with no passports, medical histories, or travel manifests. The administration will continue to closely monitor the virus globally, as well as in our hemisphere, and will adjust our proactive measures as necessary,” he said.

Added a senior administration official: “We have a unique public health threat posed by individuals arriving unlawfully at the border. Any halting of MPP would exacerbate that threat.”

DHS acting Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli said, “The department’s top priority is the safety of the American people, and President Trump has directed an aggressive, coordinated interagency response to fulfill that mission.”

  1. All the world knows anyone or any group can walk in anytime and bring whatever they want with them. Fence? Security Guards? Cameras? Wall? They’re toys. So, C’mon down!! Or up, whichever is the case.

    Sickening. In more sense than one.

    .

  2. Naturally, the article doesn’t say WHAT border crossings and HOW MANY at each border crossing are coming in through Mexico. El Paso? There are a lot of Chinese, Vietnamese, etc. in El Paso coming from Juarez… Ojinaga to Presidio? Big Bend Park? I just love the click bait where the article writer refuses to give the details.

    Watch out for mountain lions. “Coronavirus” just might become the least of your problems! Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!

  3. “328 Chinese nationals caught trying to illegally enter US at the southern border”

    And they’ll probably be flown to a state of their choosing with a daily allowance, so what’s your point?

    It’s just another day at the border.

    Maybe they’ll bring more Corona with them and I don’t mean the beer.

  4. “Officials told Secrets Wednesday that since January, 328 Chinese were “apprehended” and sent back across the border or repatriated consistent with existing policy and procedure.”

    Consistent with existing policy and procedure?!!

    Evidently that policy doesn’t include Mexicans, Hondurans, Guatemalans, El Salvadorans, etc. Otherwise they wouldn’t be flown in and wouldn’t still be here for years on end.

    Don’t you just love selective enforcement?
