Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton and Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn are teaming up to end China’s exploitation of the U.S. migration system.
John Binder of Breitbart News reported that “In the wake of the Chinese coronavirus crisis, Cotton and Blackburn — as well as Rep. David Kustoff (R-TN) in the House — have filed legislation called the SECURE CAMPUS Act that ends the China-to-United States pipeline of Chinese nationals receiving student visas for STEM fields.”
“The Chinese Communist Party has long used American universities to conduct espionage on the United States,” Cotton declared in a statement. “What’s worse is that their efforts exploit gaps in current law. It’s time for that to end.”
Binder noted what Cotton and Blackburn’s plan would do:
- Ban Chinese nationals from receiving student visas to the U.S. for STEM fields
- Ban Chinese nationals from working on federal R&D grants in STEM fields
- Require universities, labs, and research institutes recieving federal taxpayer money to confirm that they will not knowingly employ participants in China’s foreign talent recruitment programs
- Require China’s foreign talent recruitment program participants to register as foreign agents
- Require the State Department to publish a list of China’s foreign talent recruitment programs
Blackburn said the following in a statement:
Beijing exploits student and research visas to steal science, technology, engineering, and manufacturing secrets from U.S. academic and research institutions. We’ve fed China’s innovation drought with American ingenuity and taxpayer dollars for too long; it’s time to secure the U.S. research enterprise against [China’s] economic espionage.
Breitbart News previously noted that China greatly benefits from the U.S.’s legal migration system.
Binder offered some sobering numbers about mass Chinese legal migration:
From 2008 to 2018, more than 825,000 Chinese nationals arrived in the U.S. on green cards — an immigration status that provides them with permanent residency, a pathway to American citizenship, and eventually the ability to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country through the process known as “chain migration.”
In any given year, there are approximately 500,000 Chinese students in America, which is more than any other country. They usually take spots in university classrooms and work to receive Optional Practical Training (OPT) in order to displace entry-level white-collar workers.
Binder concluded that “In Fiscal Year 2019, alone, Chinese nationals secured about 170,000 F, J, and M visas to arrive in the U.S. as students — more than any other country in the world.”
China’s exploitation of America’s legal migration is in line with its unconventional strategies to expand its influence abroad.
It’s banking on not having to fire a shot in its quest to become the world’s pre-imminent superpower. By infiltrating countries, conducting espionage, buying up property, and dispossessing native workers, China is doing everything it takes to gain an advantage against the West and its allies.
In doing so, it can establish a formal foothold in the U.S. and other countries, whereby it can exercise soft power.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
