California sees surge in Chinese illegally crossing border from Mexico

从墨西哥非法进入加州的中国人数急剧攀升




The number of Chinese immigrants illegally crossing the Mexican border into California has skyrocketed in recent years, the result of a lucrative smuggling industry, mass migration from China and a diversifying pool of migrants settling in the United States.

从墨西哥边境非法进入加州的中国移民人数最近几年急剧上升,由于偷运行业的有利可图,导致大量中国移民以及其他移民来到美国。

Between October and May, the first eight months of the fiscal year, Border Patrol agents in the San Diego sector apprehended an estimated 663 Chinese nationals, compared with 48 in the entire previous fiscal year and eight in the year before that, according to data provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

根据美国海关与边境保护局的数据,去年10月到今年5月间(本财年8个月间),圣迭戈的边境巡逻人员逮捕了大约663名中国国民,而前一财年总共才48人,再前一年是8人。

Before then, “we just weren’t getting [Chinese nationals],” said Wendi Lee, a spokeswoman for the Border Patrol.

再往前追溯,“我们连一个中国人都没逮捕到,”边境巡逻部门的一位发言人如是说。
