Over 100 Republicans in Congress are planning a fast track to give American citizenship to Chinese investors, so they may play a greater role in the United States, even as another Chinese national stands accused of stealing intellectual property from Tesla, Inc.
House Republicans are planning to vote on new legislation that will give green cards and American citizenship to wealthy Chinese nationals who want to move to the United States, generating more concern about intellectual property theft.
Lofgren is a former immigration lawyer whose district includes much of Silicon Valley. She is trying to get the HR.1044 “country caps” bill passed without hearing or committee votes by sending it through a fast-track process. But that process requires 290 voters for a win, ensuring that the GOP leaders can stop her bill by reducing GOP support below 50 votes.
Led by Colorado Rep. Ken Buck, roughly 108 GOP members are co-sponsoring the HR.1044 outsourcing legislation, despite its likely harmful impact on American college graduates in their home districts. Several websites, including SAITJ.org and h1bhuntinglicenses.com, allow voters and opposition-researchers to track the inflow of H-1B foreign contract-workers into the white-collar jobs sought by constituents in each member’s congressional district.
This news breaks even as Tesla, Inc. accuses a Chinese national of stealing intellectual property from the company for the purpose of giving it to a Chinese company.
Tesla is suing a former employee, Guangzhi Cao, for allegedly stealing trade secrets from the motor company and providing them to a Chinese competitor. According to The Verge, Cao admits that he uploaded zip files containing source code for one of the company’s project to his iCloud account, which Tesla alleges was then obtained by Chinese startup Xiaopeng Motors. Cao now works for Xiaopeng Motors.
Xiaopeng Motors is backed by Alibaba, the Chinese competitor to Amazon.
Guangzhi Cao, a former engineer at Tesla, admitted in a court filing this week that he uploaded zip files containing Autopilot source code to his personal iCloud account in late 2018 while still working for the company. Tesla sued Cao earlier this year for allegedly stealing trade secrets related to Autopilot and bringing them to Chinese EV startup Xiaopeng Motors, also known as Xmotors or XPeng, which is backed by tech giant Alibaba.
Cao denied stealing sensitive information from the automaker in the same filing. His legal team argued he “made extensive efforts to delete and/or remove any such Tesla files prior to his separation from Tesla.” Cao is now the “head of perception” at XPeng, where he is “[d]eveloping and delivering autonomous driving technologies for production cars,” according to his LinkedIn profile.
It appears the Republican members of the House are completely ignoring the massive security threat posed by China, which is arguably the only other super power on the planet, and an economic powerhouse that is only now starting to feel the brunt of President Donald Trump’s tariffs.
Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien
A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.
CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.
The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.
Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
