Chinese Immigrants Are Crossing Texas Border By Hundreds a Year

Hundreds of Chinese immigrants are crossing the Texas border annually, prompting the Border Patrol to erect signs in Mandarin, Fox San Antonio reports.

“We have had on occasion a number of Chinese in the groups that we have called in and reported to border patrol,” said Jim Gibson, with the Texas Border Volunteers.

Border Patrol estimates about 500 Chinese immigrants try to cross the border in South Texas every year.

To curtail the number of immigrant dying trying to cross the border, the feds posted Mandarin-worded rescue beacons, Fox San Antonio reported.

“The fact that the federal government put the chinese language on a rescue beacon is significant and tells us there are a significant number of people from China coming through or else they wouldn’t have bothered with it,” Gibson said.
