Chinese nationals are flooding the southern border in record numbers

Once upon a time, spying was great fun. It was dangerous and exciting and sexy.

If you were a spy, you were risking everything for your country, including your life. Travelling in disguise with forged papers and secret messages hidden on your person, speaking exotic tongues, pursued relentlessly at every turn by dangerous enemies who would give no mercy if you fell into their hands. Show me a young man of spirit who wouldn’t fancy a crack at that.

In the Victorian era, British and Russian spies engaged in a thrilling secret war in the blasted, desolate terrain that separated the Russian empire’s underbelly from the northern outposts of the Raj. Rudyard Kipling dubbed this secret war the “Great Game.” The British were terrified the Russians would attempt an invasion of India by land, and they were right. The Russians did want to invade. The jewels of British India sparkled far too bright.

The problem for both parties was that they didn’t really know what lay between the two frontiers, apart from hostile tribes, decadent khans and emirs and some very nasty deserts and mountain ranges. And so, for the better part of a century, Britain and Russia sent some of their most daring, talented men out into the wilderness to scout, forge alliances and sew discord and misinformation among their enemies and their enemies’ ever-shifting allies.

The stakes, as I say, were of the highest order. Peter Hopkirk’s fantastic book The Great Game opens with a miserable anecdote about two British spies who were captured by the pampered emir of Bokhara, in modern-day Uzbekistan. Colonel Charles Stoddart and Captain Arthur Connolly were kept together in a stinking, muddy, rat-filled pit for months before they were beheaded under the “blazing midday sun” in the town’s square, surrounded by a small group of local peasants.

The two men had been sent by the British East India Company to offer an overture to the emir, in the hope of securing a treaty against the Russians, but instead negotiations soured. And that was the difference between life and death.

Things aren’t the same today. Just look at what’s happening between America and its chief geopolitical adversary China right now.

Instead of donning some elaborate disguise to get into the US, a would-be Chinese spy need only rock up at the southern border in his tracksuit and walk across. He scarcely has to look up from his phone. He may get picked up by Border Patrol, but—small inconvenience—he’ll soon be released into the country, where he can travel anywhere he pleases.

Great Game, I think not.

That’s what tens of thousands of Chinese nationals are now doing every year, entering the US illegally across the southern border. Figures for the first six months of the year show that nearly 25,000 Chinese nationals were apprehended crossing the border illegally. If rates continue for the rest of the year, that will be a 14,000% increase on figures from 2021, when just 342 Chinese nationals were apprehended by Border Patrol.

Remember: these are just the ones who are apprehended. The real figures are likely to be much higher.

Many of these people must be spies. The Chinese would be stupid not to be sending spies. And the Chinese aren’t stupid.

After all, the Chinese regime does everything else it can to sabotage America’s capabilities, from cyber warfare and stealing patents to social-media apps like TikTok that are literally turning America’s youth into drooling idiots with attention spans that would shame a fairground goldfish. Oh yeah, and biological warfare on a global scale. Don’t forget that!

What serious country would allow this to happen? Would allow tens of thousands of its chief rival’s citizens to enter its territory and then disappear to do God knows what, God knows where?

Is the US a serious country any more?

I’m not so sure.

More and more, with each passing day, I find myself reaching for a simple rule of thumb: “The purpose of a system is what it does.” The border is wide open to flood America with migrants. That’s the aim. And if that helps China send hundreds or thousands of secret operatives into the country, well—maybe that’s the purpose too.

Never forget the degree to which America’s corrupt elites have acquiesced in the nation’s decline, in the destruction of its native industries and their reconstruction abroad, principally in China.

This was the central premise of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and explains why America’s elites reacted so aggressively to his “America First” platform: because their fortunes are not pegged to America’s. America First means elites last.

If you want an example, look at the deliberate sabotage of America’s rare-earth-metals industry. Rare-earth metals, you may know, are vital for high-tech electronics. China now has a virtual monopoly on the production and trade in these substances, but this is a recent development. So do a little digging on why the massive open-pit mine at Mountain Pass, California was closed, when it could have been mined for another 30 years. Look at who helped pass the Desert Protection Act that forced it to close and look at her husband’s interests in Chinese business. Consider also how the senator in question had a Chinese mole in her staff for 20 years, until they were unmasked in 2018.

This is just one example among countless others.

As the nation declines, and ordinary people see the American Dream evaporate before their eyes, all the elites see is the chance for greater enrichment—rising stocks, broadening portfolios, a happy ending as the sun sets on America.

So when we look at these immigration figures, let them remind us that the work of 2016, the true work, still remains to be done. Globalism is still the enemy, at home and abroad.

America first.
