Chuck Norris Explains the Troubling Way His Newest Movie Mirrors Real-Life

By Movieguide® Contributor

In his newest movie, Chuck Norris takes on an alien threat of unknown origin – a mission he wishes he could undertake in real life as well.

“Alastair (Norris), the commander of a covert Earth security task force, calls upon super-powered rookie Jim (Derek Ting) to go on a mission led by battle-hardened Colonel Green (Marc Singer) and his seasoned marines to track a mysterious energy disturbance at a base in New Mexico suspected of experimenting on alien technology,” a description of the movie reads.

While Norris enjoyed working on the movie – particularly because his son Dakota, a third-degree black belt, choreographed his fight scenes – he was disturbed by the real-life parallels he noticed to America today.

“There’s one real-life alien invasion I truly wish I could protect our country from: the crime and criminals among the millions and millions of immigrants the Biden administration has encouraged and allowed to cross into the U.S. illegally from our southern border,” Norris said.

“Anyone who knows me knows I respect all law-abiding people,” he continued. “I’m all for legal immigration, but I know for a fact that too much crime and criminals pass through the dark shadows of the massive illegal invasion going on since Biden took office.”

Because of how open the southern border has become, Norris explained, the majority of illegal immigrants flooding in are no longer coming from Mexico and the Northern Triangle (El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras) but are rather from more dangerous nations like China, former Soviet Union blocs and many Middle Eastern countries.

While many people illegally entering America are fleeing the troubles of their native countries, countless bad actors also try to blend in with this crowd and infiltrate the U.S. for a far more nefarious purpose.

In 2023, 172 people on the terrorist watchlist were apprehended by border agents, the most ever on record and more than the past 6 years combined. And in September 2023 alone, the last month with currently released official data, border patrol arrested 35,433 illegal immigrants with previous criminal convictions or outstanding warrants. 598 of these people were known gang members.

The dangerous people flooding in aren’t the only problem, as the ease of access through the southern border has fueled the fentanyl crisis as well. Last year, border patrol seized 27,293 pounds of fentanyl – enough to kill more than 6 billion people. Furthermore, the control of the migration routes by the cartel has led to countless robberies, kidnappings, rapes, and even the suspected harvesting of organs by the organization.

Clearly something needs to change. With all of this crime coming in through the southern border, it’s no wonder that Norris felt a connection between his newest movie and the crisis America is facing in real life.

Movieguide® previously reported on Norris:

As the U.S. returns to the moon for the first time in 50 years, Chuck Norris is reflecting on the faith of the astronauts who led the original Apollo missions.

While most Americans recognize Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins as the crew of Apollo 11, the mission that first brought man to the surface of the moon, many Americans do not realize that these men had deep ties to religion.

“The truth is, Armstrong was a Christian (not a Muslim as some falsely reported), Collins was a nominal Episcopalian, and Aldrin was an elder at his Presbyterian Church back in Houston,” Norris explained.

Even more shocking and underreported, Aldrin took communion before he and Armstrong left the lunar module to take the historic first steps on the moon.

“Before Armstrong and Aldrin actually stepped on the moon, they made another historic step. While Collins stayed back in the lunar module, Armstrong looked on respectfully as fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrin performed a communion ceremony before the two set foot on the moon,” Norris said.

Aldrin did not keep this moment to himself either. While removing his communion elements, he spoke to Mission Control, encouraging everyone listening to take a moment to thank God.
