The Border Patrol released more illegal aliens onto the streets of an already-overwhelmed San Diego, California on Friday, at the same time that a “welcome center” for immigrants was forced to shut down because it ran out of funding, due to the surge.

“The Border Patrol bus released approximately 200 migrants onto the streets in San Ysidro, where they were then handed over to a non-governmental organization for help,” Fox News reported Friday.

The release of illegal immigrants on Friday is the latest instance of ongoing Border Patrol releases into San Diego.

In just one five-week period late last year, nearly twenty thousand migrants were dropped off in San Diego, local station CBS 8 reported on October 18, 2023:

“Border Patrol has dropped off more than 18,500 migrants into San Diego over the past five weeks. More than 1,400 migrants have been dropped off in Oceanside and local nonprofits and city governments are stepping up to help. 

Last week, CBS 8 reported that Border Patrol had dropped 13,000 in one month's time, meaning there has been at least a 5,500 increase in just seven days.”

Indeed, illegal immigrants are increasingly flooding into San Diego, between official ports of entry. And, if apprehended, they’re overwhelming detention facilities.

Border Patrol encounters between ports of entry in San Diego Sector are up 73.8% through the first four months of the current fiscal year (Oct. 2023-Jan. 2024), surging to 120,124 from 69,117 in the same period last year. In each month, the number of encounters was at least sixty percent higher than the same month year-ago.

Similarly, encounters with illegal immigrants at the port of San Diego by U.S. Customs and Border Control’s Office of Field Operations are up 70%, from 36,834 in the first four months of FY2023 to 62,722 in FY2024 to-date.

Not all of the illegal immigrants released into San Diego stay there, or even remain in the state, however.

Since the Border Patrol drops them off at a bus station, they can simply hop onto another bus and head anywhere else in the U.S. Alternatively, local nonprofits are there to provide them with free transportation to airports and rail stations.

The illegal immigrants claiming to be asylum-seekers are on the honor system to report to a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office once they settle in their new location. If they do, a court date will be set, where they can plead their case for asylum, if they show up.

What’s more, not all of San Diego’s illegal immigrants hail from Central or South America – some come from far-off, hostile regimes like China.

The influx of immigrants from hostile countries, who mix in with migrants from more friendly nations, poses a serious national security threat, as MRCTV’s Nick Kangadis reports:

“While the top nationality represented isn’t a complete surprise, with 28,000 criminal invaders from Colombia being encountered, coming in second are invaders from China, with 21,000 encounters in that sector alone since October. The rest of the top 10 includes, in order, Mexico, Brazil, Ecuador, Turkey, Guinea, India, Guatemala and Peru.”


“While some Chinese might actually be trying to flee the oppression of their communist government, you better believe that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) would take advantage of such a situation and send in spies and other military-related individuals.”
