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.
President Trump Preparing New Executive Order to Rescind DACA Amnesty After SCOTUS Decision
SCOTUS threw out the last one on procedural grounds.
White House sources have indicated that President Donald Trump is planning on signing a new executive order to terminate President Obama’s DACA amnesty program this week.
The Supreme Court had thrown out an earlier executive order to terminate the program in a court ruling last month, terminating the federal drive to enforce American immigration laws on supposed procedural inadequacies.
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows suggested that the President would soon sign a new executive order to terminate the amnesty program, while speaking on Fox and Friends on Monday morning. “Starting this week, you’ll see executive orders, you’ll see business that actually goes forward from the Oval Office when Congress doesn’t act.”
The President has spoken openly of his intention to terminate DACA a second time after the Supreme Court’s arbitrary decision. The court’s ruling had established that the President has complete authority to terminate the amnesty for a selected population of almost a million illegal immigrants, expanded by President Obama without congressional approval in 2014.

The court’s own ruling will likely prevent the judicial branch from overthrowing a second DACA termination executive order, having admitted that the federal government has every right to terminate the program that was implemented on a whim.
Liberal billionaire oligarchs such as George Soros and Charles Koch continue to fund an influence campaign to maintain the amnesty order, hoping to secure a status quo of open borders and weak immigration laws with the hopes of delivering a broad pool of affordable labor for large businesses and the American elite.
