Turkish migrants crossing US border say Americans are 'rightly' concerned: 'No safety'

A Turkish migrant, who told Fox News he paid about $10,000 to a cartel on his way to the United States and sold everything he owned, said Americans should be concerned about the lack of security at the southern border.

The man told Fox News after illegally entering Jacumba, California, San Diego County: “Basically the American people are right, absolutely true. Who's coming into this country? They don't know. OK, I'm good .But What if they are not good? If they are murderers, psychopath, otherwise?

About crossing the border, he added: “Like no security, no security check, no background check.”

He said he was concerned about who was crossing the border because “people are not normal.”

He told Fox News that his journey to the US took him 24 days, and he traveled through Qatar, Dubai, Egypt, South Africa and Brazil before arriving in Central America to get to the US.

Fox News saw dozens of migrants, mostly from China and Turkey, crossing into Southern California on Thursday.

San Diego County has become the busiest sector in the country for illegal border crossings. U.S. Customs and Broder Patrol said 37,370 people entered the country in April, according to the Los Angeles Times.

CBP told Fox News that 120 Chinese migrants entered California on Thursday.

This comes as record numbers of migrants continue to cross the border illegally, and a day after a bipartisan immigration bill failed for the second time in the Senate on a 43-50 vote after being blocked by Republicans and some Democrats.

“We gave Republicans a second chance to show where they stand,” Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said after the vote. “Do they want to solve this so-called emergency or do they want to show blind loyalty to the former president even when they know he is wrong?”

“Today is not a bill, today is a statement of support,” Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., said before the vote. “Everyone sees it for what it is.”

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said in a statement earlier this week: “I will not vote for the bill coming to the Senate this week because it contains several provisions that will violate Americans' shared values. These provisions would not make us safe.”

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, I-Ariz., who was one of the bill's primary authors along with Lankford, said the bill would not help keep the border secure.

“Using this failure as a political punching bag only punishes those who were brave enough to do the hard work in the first place,” she said, calling the vote “political theater.”

Illegal immigration has become one of the top issues in this fall's 2024 presidential election.
