Senator Ted Cruz blocked legislation that would create an immigration carve-out to more than seven million Chinese nationals during Senate proceedings on Friday. Senator Cruz cited the national security threat that the Hong Kong People’s Freedom and Choice Act would represent.
The law would’ve enshrined residents of Hong Kong with permanent eligibility as US refugees. Proponents of the bill are citing Hong Kong’s tenuous relationship with mainland China, arguing that moving Hong Kongers who oppose Communism to the United States is necessary for the Chinese territory’s pro-freedom movement.
Supporters of the bill have argued that a free pass to Chinese nationals doesn’t represent a national security threat, even as Chinese state agents carry on campaign of corporate and state espionage in the United States that may be unprecedented in American history.
A Chinese citizen born in Hong Kong was arrested over the summer, having infiltrated the CIA and FBI to provide intelligence to officials of the People’s Republic of China. Alexander Yuk Ching Ma had secured a top secret security clearance, gaining employment with the CIA in 1982.

“Our Democratic colleagues embrace open borders. When it comes to illegal immigration, their preferences is to make all immigration legal. This bill advances that long-time partisan political agenda, that the Democrats have.”
Assertions of congressional liberals that Hong Kongers are exclusively freedom-loving classical liberals are largely incorrect. The special territory of the People’s Republic of China is politically diverse as anywhere else is, and a sizable contingent of the territory’s population are party members of the Communist Party of China.
Dan Cadman of the Center for Immigration Studies described the Hong Kong amnesty as “a potential national security disaster in the making for our country, and if it passes, the intelligence organs of the PRC and its People’s Liberation Army will be delighted at the opportunities it spawns.” The law had passed the House of Representatives unanimously, with not one congressional Republican opting to stand against an immigration amnesty giveaway to Chinese citizens.
The Temporary Protected Status amnesty program has proved anything but temporary, with citizens of nations such as Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador qualifying for the program for almost twenty years.
The amnesty bill will almost certainly have to be reintroduced in the House in the next legislative session.
Tariq Nasheed Calls Out Joe Biden’s Amnesty Plan
Some on the Left are not down with Joe Biden’s mass migration agenda.
The social commentator Tariq Nasheed has been a major skeptic of Joe Biden’s ascent to the presidency of the U.S. Biden has already put forward an amnesty bill that would legalize 11 million illegal aliens, which is now bringing back this controversial debate to the fore.
On January 19, 2020, Nashed tweeted, “Question for the Biden supporters: Can you name ONE BENEFIT that Foundational Black Americans will gain from Biden prioritizing 11 million undocumented immigrants coming into the country? That’s a simple question that no one seems to answer.”
Question for the Biden supporters:
Can you name ONE BENEFIT that Foundational Black Americans will gain from Biden prioritizing 11 million undocumented immigrants coming into the country?
— Tariq Nasheed 🇺🇸 (@tariqnasheed) January 19, 2021
Nasheed is an advocate for Foundational Black Americans (FBAs), blacks who were brought to the country as slaves and who have resided in the country ever since.
Nasheed is an immigration skeptic, who views migrants as scab labor that depresses the wages of FBAs while also diluting public assistance for FBAs, as numerous migrant groups push for their own ethnic-based handouts at the expense of FBAs and Founding Stock Americans.
It is often forgotten that there is a strong tradition of immigration restriction among blacks in America that goes back to the days of Booker T. Washington all the way to Barbara Jordan’s efforts to restrict immigration in the 1990s. Before the advent of the welfare state, there was a strong ethnic consciousness in the black community that propelled it to build its own businesses, churches, schools, and other institutions. On top of that, blacks developed an independent identity that viewed foreigners, especially those who came to undercut domestic black labor, with skepticism.
Although Nasheed is a known race hustler, his views on immigration are a breath of fresh air. There was once a time when the Left used to oppose immigration on labor grounds. But now, thanks to how pro-corporate the contemporary Left has become, it has fully embraced the mass migration agenda.
