Illegal Chinese Immigrants Pay More to Enter U.S.

World Journal, news report, Posted: Oct 31, 2008

NEW YORK - Even as the United States fights an economic crisis and cracks down on illegal immigration, illegal immigrants from China are willing to pay $82,000, about $10,000 more than two years ago, to enter the United States. The World Journal reports that statistics from organizations serving immigrants from Fujian Province of China show about 3,000 immigrants arrived in the United States illegally this year. More than 90 percent of them are male. One man who recently arrived in New York said he paid the money and left China about a year ago, when the United States wasn't facing an economic crisis. The Chinese-language newspaper reports that the immigrants pay more because of the devaluation of U.S. dollars to Chinese money as well as the increasing challenge of entering the country illegally. Some were caught, deported to China and have returned illegally a second time, leaving each of them more than $100,000 in debt.
