Adm. Daryl Caudle, Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command, said during an interview late last week that foreign nationals are attempting to enter U.S. Navy bases multiple times every week.

Caudle made the remarks during a Friday interview on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” when asked about a recent story out of North Carolina where foreign nationals were caught near where some of America’s top special forces operators live and train.

“Well, you know, this thing of our military bases getting penetrated by foreign nationals is happening more and more,” he said. “This is something we see probably two or three times a week, where we’re stopping these folks at the gate.”

He said that it was happening “at least” two to three times per week “and this is just Navy alone where we’re seeing folks try to come in.”

“And usually the cover story is ‘I’m a student, you know, I’m here, I’m an enthusiast. I want to see the ships.’ That type of thing. We have to turn them around,” he said. “And typically we get NCIS involved with those. And we get biometrics when possible. But yes, there’s been an uptick.”

He said that the foreign nationals often have passports and papers with them when they are caught.

“But they’re in no way shape or form authorized to be on our base,” he said. “And it’s really hard for us to tell the underlying motive for these type of cases. Wow, that’s, that’s stunning. It is. It’s got to be a concern.”

“This is Russian, Chinese,” he added. “Is comes from all all these different nations. We’re seeing an uptick in it.”
