John Binder of Breitbart News reported that China is the top exporter of foreign students to America.
In fact, it sends more of its students to the U.S. annually than Europe and Africa put together.
On a yearly basis, the U.S. issues approximately 800,000 F, M, and J visas to foreign students and their members, per State Department data. Approximately 30 percent of F visas were given to Chinese nationals in addition to 23 percent of all M visas.
Breitbart News previously reported that in any given year about 500,000 Chinese students in the U.S. are attending universities and then making efforts to eventually obtain Optional Practical Training (OPT) authorization to acquire entry-level jobs in white-collar professions.
In the Fiscal Year of 2019, about 117,000 Chinese nationals attained F visas to arrive in the states as students. The next country exporting its nationals to the U.S. as students is India. In 2019, over 46,000 Indian nationals received F visas.
China has maintained consistent domination of U.S. foreign student visa programs in the last few years. For example, in 2018, over 110,200 Chinese nationals received F visas. Binder noted that “this is more than any country was able to secure by at least 50,000 visas.”
On April 26, 2020, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton called on the U.S. to review its issuance of visas to Chinese students during the Wuhan virus pandemic.
“It’s a scandal to me that we have trained so many of the Chinese Communist Party’s brightest minds to go back to China to compete for our jobs, to take our business, and ultimately to steal our property and design weapons and other devices that can be used against the American people,” Cotton stated.
“I think we need to take a very hard look at the visas that we give the Chinese nationals to come to the United States to study, especially at the post-graduate level in advanced scientific and technological fields,” Cotton added.
Similar to the F visa, China dominates the M and J visas, which allows for the U.S. to import foreign vocational education students and “cultural and educational exchange” volunteers and interns to get hired as camp counselors, au pairs, research scholars, professors, and teachers.
In 2019, China claimed more than 50,000 J visas and more than 2,200 M visas. Binder provided a big picture overview of what these numbers entail: “For perspective, this means that Chinese nationals got as many M visas for the year as all Europeans were able to secure.”
Similarly, Chinese nationals obtained more than 50,000 J visas and more than 2,400 M visas. According to the data, China is able to procure more J visas to send nationals to the U.S. during a single year than both North America and Africa put together.
It’s not just student visas where China dominates.
China is still the country with the second-highest number of green cards issued to its nationals during the last decade. Only Mexico tops it.
Although China has slightly pivoted from its previous era of Maoist totalitarianism, the country remains a geopolitical rival to America.
If the GOP and Trump administration are serious about containing Chinese influence, they should be instantly pushing for a Chinese Exclusion Act of the 21st century.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
