Authorities have revealed that a record number of Chinese nationals have been caught illegally crossing the Southern Border into the United States.
A staggering 4,797 Chinese nationals were encountered on America’s southwestern border with Mexico in November alone.
This figure broke the record that was set just one month prior.
According to figures from Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), November was the third consecutive month that a record was set for monthly encounters at the border with citizens of Communist China.
4,261 Chinese nationals were encountered in October and 4,042 were encountered in September.
There were also 7,245 nationwide encounters with Chinese nationals by immigration officials in November.
This marks an increase across the whole country from 7,164 in October.
The monthly figures mark a shocking increase from fiscal years 2021 and 2022.
During the previous years, when there were just 450 southwest border encounters with Chinese nationals in fiscal year 2021 and 2,176 in FY 2022.
However, the number surged to 24,314 in FY 2023 and has already climbed past 9,000 in just the first two months of FY 2024.
Earlier this year, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) warned that some of the Chinese nationals entering the United States had connections to the Chinese Communist Party and the People’s Liberation Army.
Green was citing information from a Border Patrol Sector Chief.

The new figures were released alongside data revealing that there were nearly 250,000 illegal immigrant encounters in November alone, breaking the record for the month.
Illegal border crossings have surged under the Biden administration.
An estimated 1.7 million illegal immigrant gotaways have been recorded since Biden took office in 2021.
There were 415,000 total reported gotaways for 2018, 2019, and 2020 under the Trump administration.
The number of illegal border crossings jumped to a record high in fiscal year 2022.
The surge has included a 1,000% increase in illegal immigration from several different countries.
Nationals from Afghanistan, Ethiopia, and the Dominican Republic, among others, have been recorded crossing the border.
The record-high increases in illegal border crossings have strained so-called “sanctuary cities” like Chicago and New York.
These major U.S. cities have struggled to house foreign nationals.
Chicago passed a measure earlier this year to provide $51 million in taxpayer funds to house and feed migrants.
Meanwhile, 50 places of worship in New York City are now being used to accommodate foreign nationals.
Multiple public opinion surveys indicate that voters disapprove of Biden’s handling of the border.
A Fox News poll found that 62% of respondents disapproved of Biden’s handling of the border.
According to the poll, which surveyed more than 1,000 registered voters in late June, only 35% approve of Biden’s border policies.
