More Illegal Chinese Immigrants Entering U.S.through Mexico

China Press, Posted: Aug 04, 2009

An increased number of Chinese immigrants are entering the United States illegally through Mexico, China Press reports.

According to the report, during the first five months of 2009 U.S. immigration authorities arrested 969 illegal Chinese immigrants, most of whom entered through southern Arizona,. Authorities also found out that Chinese immigrants pay human traffickers ten times more $20,000 to $30,000 than Mexicans to cross the boarders, unaware that they would be traveling in the desert for days without water.

Chinese consulate officials expressed concerns towards the issue. They promised to provide assistance to identified Chinese citizens according to the law. However, if they cannot be identified, they cannot be deported back to China.
