China Dominates Student Visas in US, Hundreds of Thousands Attending Now

Published

on

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.

China has weaponized its immigration on previous occasions and has numerous nationals in the U.S. who engage in espionage.

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.

Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016

Coulter tells it like it is.

Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.

Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.

Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is  necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.

As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.

Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.

She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.

also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”

She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.

The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.

Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
