The influx of Central American illegal immigrants appears to have attracted the attention of Chinese nationals seeking to gain access to the United States. Border Patrol union officials in the Rio Grande Valley Sector tell National Review Online they’ve noticed a recent uptick in the number of Chinese border crossers.

I disagree.”

Homeland Security Solicited Bids for “Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children”

Murrieta Mayor: Feds Never Contacted Us About Dumping Illegals in Our City
Alan Long also told FOX News the federal government have not contacted him about dumping hundreds of illegal immigrant children on the streets of Murrieta.
“We’re a very small town. It’s a bedroom community of about 106,000 and the air is clean and the people are beautiful… As far as we know, Murrieta is still a destination point. So we have every reason to expect more buses to arrive in Murrieta. Border patrol and Homeland Security has not answered any of those questions. We just anticipate more coming. Border patrol… At the national and the Department of Homeland Security, we have yet to hear from them with a short term and long term plan. So we’re really in the dark.”
