Open Borders Setting Up America's Own Surprise Attack?

The U.S. Border Patrol has encountered 72,823 "special interest aliens" on America's borders over the past two years--many from the Middle East--according to an exclusive Fox News report.
A special interest alien is a government term used to refer to an illegal alien from a nation that either promotes terrorist activity, harbors terrorists, or poses a possible security threat to the U.S.
Data obtained by Fox and "confirmed by multiple CBP [Customs and Border Protection] sources ... which reflects apprehensions between ports of entry between Oct. 2021 and Oct. 2023, shows that agents encountered 6,386 nationals from Afghanistan in that period, as well as 3,153 from Egypt, 659 from Iran and 538 from Syria," according to the outlet.
Additionally, in the last two years, Fox News' Bill Melugin reports that Border Patrol agents have encountered 139 illegal aliens from Yemen, 123 from Iraq, 164 from Lebanon, 1,613 from Pakistan, 15,594 from Mauritania, 13,624 from Uzbekistan, and 30,830 from Turkey.
"Border Patrol sources tell me they have extreme concerns about who is coming into the country because they have little to no way of vetting people from these special interest countries," Melugin wrote on X, formerly Twitter, Tuesday.
"I'm told unless [illegal aliens] have committed a crime previously in the U.S., or they are on some sort of federal watchlist, there's no way to know who they are because most of their home countries don't share data/records with the U.S., so there is nothing to match a name to when BP agents run fingerprints," Melugin said.
The numbers Melugin reports do not include those encountered at ports of entry or "gotaways" who have successfully evaded Customs and Border Protection.
Responding to Melugin's report, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., asked in an X post, "If these individuals were caught, how many got away?"
A new report from the House Judiciary Committee found that "more than 1.7 million known 'gotaways'" have successfully evaded Border Patrol agents and entered the country during the first 26 months of the Biden administration.
News of the "special interest aliens" who have been encountered on America's borders comes just a few days after Hamas launched an unprecedented attack against Israel, killing hundreds, including Americans.
While many 'special interest aliens' have ties to Islamic countries some experts have been warning for months that that amount of Chinese nationals flooding our country could set the stage for terrorist attacks in the homeland if we go to war with China over Taiwan.
The vast majority of those crossing are men, and the vast majority of those men are of military age. Most of the time, when these men are intercepted by U.S. officials they claim that they have come to apply for asylum in the United States. Of course they know that their court dates will be set far into the future because our system is being absolutely overwhelmed by asylum seekers right now.
As they wait for their court dates, most of them are released into the United States and are permitted to go wherever they want. So what this means is that thousands upon thousands of Chinese men of military age have been allowed into this country, and we don't know where they are or what they are doing.
According to Fox News, the number of Chinese nationals that are being encountered at our borders far exceeds anything that we have ever seen before...
So far in fiscal year 2023, U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered nearly 40,000 Chinese nationals on both the southern and northern borders, far surpassing the approximately 23,500 and 27,800 encountered in fiscal years 2021 and 2022, respectively.
In July, more than 6,000 crossed the border, just two months after the COVID-19-era rule that allowed for expelling illegal migrants quickly - known as Title 42 - expired.
Obviously these Chinese nationals do not walk to our borders from China.
So how do they get here?
Well, it is being reported that many of them begin their journeys in the nation of Ecuador...
The Chinese migrants typically start their journey in Ecuador, which is visa-free for Chinese citizens, as per The Diplomat. From there, they head to Necoclí, a town in Colombia's northern coast, which then leads to the Darién Gap, a 66-mile dense jungle reportedly filled with armed guerillas, drug traffickers and deadly biodiversity. Some who undertake the treacherous journey allegedly pay smugglers up to $35,000 for help.
This is a major national security issue, but the Biden administration isn't doing anything about it.
Needless to say, this is greatly frustrating many Republicans. In fact, the chair of the Homeland Security Committee in the House of Representatives recently told the Daily Mail that he is concerned that China may be sending these men here for a specific purpose...
House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green, R-Tenn., told DailyMail.com that there has been a 'massive increase' of Chinese nationals tied to the People's Liberation Army (PLA) that have gained access to the U.S. by crossing over the border.
And there have been over 17,800 Chinese nationals released into the U.S. this year alone, he claimed.
Green called the 'stupidity' of the Biden administration's border policies currently in place 'mind-blowing' because now Chinese spies could act as 'saboteurs' in the same manner Russian military men established residency in Ukraine before the invasion.
I think that Green's concerns are quite justified.
Just as rumors of a potential war between the U.S. and China are reaching a crescendo, we are seeing Chinese men cross our borders in much larger numbers than we ever have before.
And they appear to be doing it in groups.
Earlier this year, one reporter released video footage that showed "hundreds of military-aged Chinese men in Panama heading toward the U.S. border"...
A reporter released new video that appears to show hundreds of military-aged Chinese men in Panama heading toward the U.S. border.
Muckraker.com founder Anthony Rubin said on "Fox & Friends First" Wednesday that every day, multiple times a day, groups of men are lining up and getting on buses to continue their journeys.
There appears to be at least some level of coordination to these efforts.
And once they get here, Chinese nationals often end up in places where they aren't supposed to be...
The Chinese nationals posed as 'tourists' wandered onto a missile launch site in New Mexico, as first reported by the Wall Street Journal. In addition, some reportedly staged as scuba divers in order to get close to a Florida rocket launch site, while others claimed to be staying on an Army base in Alaska.
The operatives have reportedly claimed to be tourists who are 'lost' and unable to find their way to a Burger King or McDonalds coincidentally close to a U.S. military base.
These are just the ones that have been caught.
How many other spies have successfully completed their missions without being caught?
Once migrants are released into this country, they can literally go anywhere.
And when a war with the United States finally erupts, they will be ready to carry out their assigned tasks.
Only a very foolish nation would allow the enemy to pre-position tens of thousands of soldiers, spies and saboteurs, but that is precisely what we are doing.
