Speaking to ABC News, Jim Mancuso, the assistant director of the Global Trade Division at Homeland Security Investigations, stated that Iran’s drones recovered on the battlefield in Ukraine and the Middle East have “sensitive U.S. communications systems, and they have sensitive microelectronics.” Mancuso added that Iran, China, and Russia were trying to “illegally acquire” American technology.
He went on to add that anti-American forces are using an “extensive network” to obtain American technology out of the country, in violation of international export laws.
Through specialized “procurement networks,” these regimes are repacking goods and transferring them through Beijing to get to places like Tehran, according to the DHS official. Some of the technology, according to Mancuso, is being exported and found in ordinary household items such as radios and microchips.
“They’re going to go to China, and then from China, they’re going to be loaded on an Iranian aircraft, and they’re going to be flown to Iran,” Mancuso told ABC News. The official noted that the DHS is looking at Russian networks operating in this country and that the agency knows that they are “repackaging sensitive U.S. equipment and is going onward to further the Russian war effort [in Ukraine].”
Mancuso said U.S. officials were targeting the “procurement networks,” and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) begin when U.S. technology and materials are discovered where they should not be. “We’re always trying to stay one step ahead,” he told ABC News.
Border Patrol Council President concerned over ‘influx’ of military-aged Chinese men crossing the southern border
According to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol data Border Patrol agents detained over 30,000 Chinese individuals for illegally crossing the border from January to November 2023, sparking concern.
Just The News reports that National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd on Wednesday said the United States should be incredibly concerned by the influx of military-aged Chinese men coming across the southern border.
“Why are we seeing this influx?” Judd asked on the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “At best, they’re just coming here for a better life or for a better job. At worse, they’re coming here to be part of the Chinese government, and that’s what scares me an awful lot.”
“We know that the Chinese have huge gangs here in the United States, and they control certain parts of our country,” he later said. “They control the drug flow. They control the prostitution. They control everything that’s illegal in certain portions of the country. We have to look into that. It’s very important that we understand why we are having so many people from China, especially military-aged men, from China.”
“I don’t want to cause mass hysteria where United States citizens are violent towards people from China,” Judd said. “However, we have to … allow the intelligence community to do their job. We’ve got to let law enforcement do their job and look into these individuals.”
Many Chinese immigrants are leaving due to economic conditions in China and its strict lockdowns, Yahoo News reported.
“Again, at best, they’re here for a better life,” Judd said. “At worst, they’re here to be part of the Chinese government to infiltrate our own country.”
