Lucas: Call it an invasion

A Chinese Liberation Army infantry division is made up of 12,000 men.

In fiscal 2023, 24,000 Chinese migrants, mostly of military age, unlawfully crossed the “secure” southern border into the United States.

That is the equivalent of an invasion by two full Chinese army divisions.

And thousands more have come in since then, especially along the open southern California border with Mexico. They make up a third Chinese Army division.

What are they doing here? Who sent them? Why has Joe Biden let them into the country?

If they were armed and uniformed it would be an official act of war. Now, dressed in civilian clothes and not carrying weapons, it is only an unofficial invasion. And they haven’t fired a shot.

It is like a stealthy Pearl Harbor waiting to happen.

Imagine what would happen if 24,000 American men of military age walked into China, or at least tried. The Peoples’ Liberation Army (PLA) would run out of ammo mowing them down.

But nobody in their right mind goes to China, even the Chinese abroad don’t. They go to California instead.

California has become the illegal immigrant entry of choice for Chinese and other migrants ever since Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sealed his state off from Mexico with miles of barbed wire.

Eagle Pass, Texas is now the walled off Berlin of the Cold War.

Biden can talk all he wants, but he opened the border on day one of his administration when he could have left untouched the secure border initiatives that former President Donald Trump had put into place.

Now, plummeting in the polls as he seeks re-election, Biden is planning to place a band aid on a shotgun wound.

This is not to single out the hordes of Chinese nationalists who somehow get out of the Chinese communist police state and make the long journey to break into the United States and freedom.

It is not easy to get out of China, just ask Marco Polo. But these Chinese men crossing the border seem to have no problem getting out, possibly because they are being sent.

But of the migrants ranging from countries ranging from Afghanistan to Zambia entering the U.S, only the Chinese come from an adversarial country that wants to replace the U.S. as the world’s leading superpower.

It could be that some of these Chinese men of military age are legitimate asylum seekers.

It could be that others are spies or special military operators seeking a foothold behind the lines in the U. S. with the aim off undermining the country. Nobody really knows.

And Joe Biden is letting them wander in and travel to wherever they want while having the U.S. taxpayer pick up expenses.

Biden is being rolled by the Chinese, just as he was rolled when he allowed the Chinese spy balloon to traverse the U.S. gathering intelligence unhindered.

He only ordered it shot down over the ocean after it had completed its mission.

Everybody from every second and third-rate country in the world wants to get into the U.S. to get a piece of the country’s generous welfare benefits.

Thanks to California Gov. Gavin Newson, who is warming up on the presidential sidelines, immigrants are now eligible for free medical care in California on top of all the other benefits they are showered with.

Meanwhile the country goes down the drain as cities like New York and Chicago crumble in crime.  Even Kiev is safer than New York.

Biden spent this past weekend in California raising campaign money. He did not visit the border. He never does.

Biden was also in California last November where he met with Chinese Communist Party dictator Xi Jinping.

Biden called the talks “some of the most productive discussions we’ve had.”

A month earlier, according to the U.S. Border Patrol, 555 Chinese nationals, mostly young men, crossed the border into California.

A month later, after Biden’s “productive” meeting with the Chinese leader, Biden waved in 6,136 more young, mostly male Chinese nationals.

The meeting was productive, all right, productive for China, not the United States.
