Large Deportation Flight – Too Little, Too Late?!

(RightIsRight.co) – The Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s recent announcement that it conducted a deportation of Chinese illegal aliens over the weekend came a little too late, as the Biden administration has already let millions of illegals enter the country.

The DHS did not specify how many illegals were on the flight, which is the first large deportation charter flight to China since 2018.

However, the department said that the removal of Chinese illegals was part of Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas’ “continued efforts to engage the [People’s Republic of China] on areas of mutual interest.”

Mayorkas was impeached by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives earlier this year over his handling of the border, as record numbers of encounters have been reported under his watch. The Democrat-controlled Senate dismissed the articles of impeachment against him.

“We will continue to enforce our immigration laws and remove individuals without a legal basis to remain in the United States,” Mayorkas said in a press release announcing the deportation flight to China. “People should not believe the lies of smugglers.”

According to the DHS, “Together, the United States and PRC are working to reduce and deter irregular migration and to disrupt illicit human smuggling through expanded law enforcement efforts.”

While the exact number of Chinese illegals transported over the weekend remains unknown, one planeload of illegals pales in comparison to the number of Chinese nationals who Customs and Border Protection have apprehended under the Biden administration.

Moreover, CNN reported that in the first 11 months of 2023, 31,000 Chinese illegals were apprehended while attempting to unlawfully cross the U.S. southern border. That number was higher than the previous ten years combined.

A DHS press release touted an executive order signed by Biden last month that temporarily suspended the entry of some illegals into the country if daily border encounters pass 2,500.

Furthermore, Biden has been criticized for waiting until months before a presidential election to take executive action on the border, an action that House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) called “window dressing.”

“If he was concerned about the border, he would have done this a long time ago,” Johnson added.

In turn, citizens from U.S. nemesis China are not the only security concerns crossing the southern border. Last month, eight suspected terrorists with suspected links to ISIS were arrested after illegally entering the U.S.
