President of Universal Coin and Bullion Mike Fuljenz revealed that Facebook is failing to ban counterfeit goods on its social media platform and ignoring those repeated warnings is a serious security risk to the American people. On the latest episode of the Sara Carter Show Fuljenz and Carter discussed China’s efforts to advertise counterfeit purses, cosmetics, currency and unauthorized medicinal products.

Fuljenz, a member of the Anti-Counterfeiting Educational Foundation and an Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force, said “we just sent a letter to Facebook about all the counterfeits that are appearing in Facebook ads. And that applies to Wish, platforms like Alibaba, eBay and Amazon.”

“The Canadian broadcast company did surveys on counterfeits it’s not just purses and watches. It’s not just $100 bills, it’s quarters in your change. It’s cosmetics with chemicals. It can be poisonous, it’s airline parts on the planes we find even our fighter jets for US Air Force. It’s medical parts. It’s medicines,” he added.

In the meantime, Facebook has not responded to Fuljenz’s letter. “That’s amazing. Because they censor us all the time there. It doesn’t matter what you write about. You could write about trying to save lives,” Carter said. “Facebook and all of these social media apparatuses are good at censoring. But you’re saying they did not respond to your warning?”

As a result, Fuljenz concludes that China has too strong of a relationship with the U.S. to motivate any change. “We’re dependent on China for production of legitimate products,” he said. “But the society over there looks at counterfeits differently than we do, and has a great impact on us.”

Now, the president of Universal Coin and Bullion helps get counterfeit victims’ their money back after they buy fake gold and currency.

Number of illegal migrants from China, mostly single males, surpassing those from Mexico in some areas

U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported that the total number of apprehensions from China at the conclusion of the 2023 fiscal year, was 24,048 persons, more than 10 times the 1,970 arrests recorded in 2022. Of the more than 140,000 Chinese nationals, mostly single males, who have illegally entered the United States since President Joe Biden took office, does not include persons who have evaded capture.

In one California border sector, where the majority are apprehended, CBP announced that between October and February, the 21,000 encounters with Chinese citizens surpassed the 18,700 Mexicans taken into custody.

Foreign Desk News explains that the migrants will typically fly to Ecuador, as there is no visa requirement, then pay guides to transport them to the U.S. border. Many of the transients will claim asylum on the basis that they are victims of the oppressive regime in Beijing.

The influx has caused concern in Washington over the possible national security implications, such as how on March 27, an unnamed Chinese individual was arrested for attempting to enter the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, California, without identification.

The Wall St. Journal reported that unauthorized Chinese citizens, often posing as tourists, attempted to access or surveil sensitive U.S. military instillations more than 100 times in recent years.

Last summer, House Homeland Security Chairman Mark Green (R-TN), announced that his committee had obtained evidence from the U.S. Border Patrol confirming that many of the detained, and later released per Biden administration policy, have ties to China’s People’s Liberation Army.
