US’ next target: Chinese scholars

Some US lawmakers are trying to pass legislation that would make it harder for Chinese students and scholars to enter the US, citing security concerns as a trade war rages between Washington and Beijing. The members of Congress, mostly President Trump’s fellow Republicans, have introduced bills that would require more reporting from colleges and universities about funds they receive from China, prohibit students or scholars with ties to the Chinese military from entering the United States or set new limits on access to sensitive academic research.

“The Communist Party is infiltrating American society to censor free speech and steal sensitive research,” Republican Senator Ted Cruz, who has sponsored several pieces of China-related legislation, said.

The individual bills face little chance of passing despite growing bipartisan concern in Congress over security risks from China. However, small pieces of the measures could make their way into broader, must-pass bills, like the annual National Defence Authorisation Act.

China has reject such accusations and is pushing back. On Monday, Beijing warned students about risks in the US, pointing to the rising number of visa refusals
