The influx of Chinese illegal immigrants crossing the southern border has surged by an astonishing 4,000 percent since 2021, as per Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin's on-site report.

Melugin, while in Jacumba, California, highlighted the challenges posed by the language barrier, stating, "My Spanish speaking skills are not doing me a whole lot of good down here," amidst a significant rise in Chinese nationals breaching the border.

Engaging with recently arrived illegal immigrants awaiting processing, Melugin discovered a diverse group hailing from China, Turkey, and Ecuador. One individual, relying on her phone for translation, expressed her intention to head to Los Angeles.

This abnormal trend was emphasized by Melugin as he remarked, "this is not normal."

A source from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) disclosed to Fox News that encounters with Chinese illegal immigrants have escalated significantly. From October 2023, the start of fiscal year 2024, over 20,000 such encounters have been recorded, a stark contrast to the mere 450 encounters throughout fiscal year 2021, marking a staggering 4,000 percent surge.

Earlier reports unveiled a streamlined vetting process for Chinese illegal immigrants by the Biden administration. An internal email from April 2023 instructed Border Patrol agents to curtail interview questions for apprehended Chinese nationals from 40 to just five, expediting their release into the U.S. interior and complicating the identification of potential national security risks.
