Now Chinese migrants are sneaking onto Guam: Top Republican warns Communist Party wants to ‘exploit’ every part of the U.S. map and warns critical American base is vulnerable

There are rising concerns that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is infiltrating the United States’ sensitive military site in Guam where over 20,000 troops are stationed.

A growing number of Chinese nationals have been sneaking in from the Northern Mariana Islands into Guam, which makes the U.S. territory susceptible to CCP influence. 

Guam is the location of the Navy’s only submarine base in the western Pacific. It also hosts a ‘strategically important’ air base with bombers and fighter jets. 

The island’s homeland security agency has reported 118 ‘unlawful or attempted unlawful entries by Chinese citizens’ since 2022.

The number peaked at 85 in 2022 followed by 27 in 2023 and six so far in 2024, according to Stars and Stripes. 

‘Count on the Chinese Communist Party to exploit every potential vulnerability on the map. What the CCP is doing in Guam is almost certainly no exception,’ House Homeland Security Chairman Mark Green, R-Tenn., told DailyMail.com.

‘The United States maintains a significant military presence on the island, a vital outpost for helping America defend our strategic interests in the region.’ 

He added that the ‘surging numbers of Chinese nationals coming into Guam’ should be a ‘major cause for concern, in part because we simply do not know for what purpose these individuals are coming.’

Green blames the Biden administration for allowing the CPP to ‘sense weakness’ and then ‘take advantage’ of the situation. 

‘It’s not just rising numbers of Chinese nationals illegally crossing our Southwest border that demands attention—what’s happening in Guam does, as well.’ 

Chinese migrants using the border to gain entry are the fastest growing group being smuggled in from Mexico. 

Last year, Green told DailyMail.com that there had been over 17,800 Chinese nationals released into the U.S. from January through September after they came across the southern border.

In addition to the illegal migrants streaming onto the island, DailyMail.com previously reported on the ‘loophole’ that allows Chinese nationals to spy on U.S. military installations in Guam.

In 2019, the Biden administration enacted a policy to allow Chinese nationals to visit the Northern Mariana Islands for 14 days without a visa. 

From there, many have been reported to charter boats to Guam in order to get information on sensitive U.S. military sites.

Guam Customs and Quarantine spokeswoman Alana Chargualaf-Afaisen told Newsweek that the agency stops ‘unlawful arrivals’ to the territory.

The migrants often ‘prevent harm in a variety of areas, including military intelligence and reconnaissance, terrorism, communicable diseases, human trafficking for slave labor, prostitution and illegal gambling, cheap, undocumented labor, the movement of illicit drugs, and other illegal activities that pose a threat to the quality of life in Guam, are of equal concern to our island,’ said the statement to Newsweek.

The ongoing visa loophole is of major concern to top leaders in the Senate as well.

Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, previously told DailyMail.com that the visa loophole allows spies to take a ‘hard look’ at what that U.S. is doing militarily in Guam and then ‘use that against us.’ 

‘We’re trying to close those loopholes. I just think it’s very, very important that we do this,’ said Ernst, who sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Ernst and Rep. Rep. Neal Dunn, R-Fla., wrote a letter to Department of Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas slamming the policy, which the administration has said provides a significant economic boost for the small island.
