Chinese ‘Cyber Police’ Agent Caught Running Network to Help Illegals Flood America

An investigation has uncovered a disturbing online network that is helping foreign nationals illegally flood into the United States over the Southern Border.

Alarmingly, the private social network is run by a self-identified Chinese Communist Party agent.

The network provides illegal immigrants with resources to get into the U.S. and evade border authorities.

The American Self-Guided Tour Channel, a Chinese-language group with over 8,000 members, was discovered during an investigation by the Daily Caller.

The group operates on the encrypted instant messaging platform Telegram.

It serves as both a forum for discussing Chinese illegal immigration and a hub for documents detailing specific routes to the U.S.

Documents in the Telegram channel translated by the Daily Caller identify U.S. border wall gaps, instruct Chinese nationals on how to answer questions from Border Patrol agents, and provide scripts for requesting asylum.

Furthermore, the channel is overseen by an individual who spreads Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda.

The network is controlled by an individual identifying himself as a Chinese “cyber police” officer who bans accounts that fail to toe the communist regime’s party line.

The discovery has set alarm bells off in Congress.

After learning about the network, Republican Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) said:

“We’re allowing an element that is completely beyond our law to be established firmly as a beachhead in the United States of America, and the people of America are going to pay a severe price, much worse than we are paying even now.”

Customs and Border Protection data shows that the overwhelming majority of the roughly 48,000 Chinese illegal immigrants encountered by U.S. authorities in 2024 have been single adults.

Experts warn that “military-aged males” make up the lion’s share.

Bishop, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee’s Oversight, Investigations, and Accountability subcommittee, described the 1,100% spike in Chinese illegal immigrants since fiscal year 2022 as “historically unprecedented.”

The congressman revealed that the inner workings of China’s human smuggling networks have largely remained a mystery to lawmakers up until now.

“Even people, like me, who’ve seen a lot of it have not yet totally come to grips with the sort of depth that you’ve described,” said Bishop.

The American Self-Guided Tour Channel and several related Telegram groups facilitating Chinese illegal immigration were discovered after the Daily Caller’s investigators analyzed a Chinese illegal immigrant’s abandoned cell phone.

The device was found near the California-Mexico border by a San Diego man in January 2024.

Through a months-long review of the American Self-Guided Tour Channel, the investigators discovered that the group contains documents instructing Chinese nationals on how to navigate the U.S. immigration system.

Those instructions include scripts for claiming asylum and answering questions from Border Patrol agents.

One document advises those wishing to apply for a green card in the U.S. to “be sure to prepare a story about your persecution in advance.”

Another document provides responses to questions Border Patrol agents may ask in order to establish whether or not an asylum-seeker has a credible fear of persecution from their home country.

Under current law, migrants who claim “credible fear” of persecution can seek asylum in the U.S.

“Even if moving would be inconvenient, can you live safely elsewhere in the country?” reads one of the hypothetical questions.

“No, because the situation I’m facing is nationwide,” the suggested answer states. “Even if I move to another place, I’ll be under threat just as before.”

Another post provides templates on how to craft asylum claims based on political, religious, racial, sexual, and even gender persecution, despite women comprising only a small fraction of Chinese illegal aliens.

“I am [name, ancestral hometown] nationality, I was born on [birthday]. Because I suffered gender-based violence and discrimination in my motherland, I am seeking asylum in [country],” the document’s template on gender persecution states.

“My family forced me to marry, they wanted me to marry a man much older than me.

“When I refused, they beat me and threatened me saying that if I didn’t obey, they’d kill me.

“After marrying, my husband started physically and mentally abusing me, I was forced to leave my home and live in hiding.

“I tried seeking help from the local government, but they’re either corrupt or unwilling to help me.

“If I am forced to return to [motherland], I fear for my life, there I will face more violence and discrimination.”

Documents stored on the channel indicate a relatively sophisticated understanding of the U.S. immigration system, with some featuring intricate flowcharts to map out various potential U.S. immigration pathways.

One such flowchart suggests that, as a last resort, those who’ve received a deportation order, but lack a passport to return to their countries, may consider starting the immigration process over with a false identity.

“You can try alternate identities, [but] the difficulty is relatively high and Trump may invite you to a meeting with state security agents in the future,” the document states, referring to President Donald Trump.

The DCNF’s review of the American Self-Guided Tour Channel also discovered that its owner — @wjackcn, or “Jack W” — claims to work as a cyber police officer stationed in China.

“Yes, I am cyber police,” Jack W stated on April 30, 2024, after an account in the channel asked him if he was a cyber police officer.

According to federal authorities, cyber police serve China’s Ministry of Public Security by monitoring website content and spreading propaganda.

After identifying himself as a cyber police officer, Jack W outlined his policing duties in a post in which described himself as being “responsible for national security affairs, fighting reactionaries and foreign hostile forces.”

Later that day, Jack W directed channel members interested in national security work to apply to China’s premier civilian intelligence agency, the Ministry of State Security.

“If you want to work for the Ministry of State Security, please use the method of participating in the National Civil Servant exam,” Jack W told members of the Telegram channel.

Although Jack W’s affiliation with the Ministry of Public Security or Ministry of State Security cannot be confirmed, a review of the account’s posts found that it promoted Chinese illegal immigration and has banned members for expressing “hurtful opinions towards the motherland.”

Jack W’s Telegram channel has also promoted CCP propaganda.

On June 4, 2024, the American Self-Guided Tour Channel posted an image of a tank with the caption:

“Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the Defeat of the Western-Backed Colour Revolution.”

The comment was in reference to the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre.

During the massacre, the Chinese government slaughtered as many as 10,000 pro-democracy protesters, according to the former British ambassador to China.

In addition to Jack W, several other members of the network have identified themselves as Chinese police officers, military personnel, and CCP members.

Rep. Bishop described Chinese illegal immigration as “the most astonishing threat.”

“Chinese nationals presenting at the Southern Border of the United States were almost unheard of previously,” Bishop noted.

In May 2024, Bishop chaired the House Homeland Security Committee’s Oversight, Investigations, and Accountability subcommittee hearing concerning the approximately 8,000% increase in Chinese illegal immigration the U.S. has experienced since March 2021.

The hearing followed a January 2024 DCNF investigation revealing an internal Customs and Border Protection email showing that the Biden administration dramatically simplified the vetting process for Chinese illegal immigrants in April 2023 by reducing the number of interview questions Border Patrol agents are required to ask from roughly 40 down to just five.

“The experts that testified before the Subcommittee on Oversight that I chaired when we had a hearing on this established fairly persuasively that there is no vetting,” Bishop added.

“It’s a perfunctory, quick interview, and they move on into the country and are released.”

“China is the foremost adversary of the United States on the world stage,” Bishop warned.

“Something’s descending on the United States that we should never have allowed to occur.”
