Public Security Ministry’s children denied visas to the U.S. Hua Chunying fumes in public

On May 13, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry made a rare admission that “children of the Ministry of Public Security were denied visas to the U.S.,” while scolding the United States and other Western powers for accusing them of human rights problems. Analysis suggests that the U.S. is specifically targeting Chinese officials for serious human rights abuses; the U.S. Secretary of State has stated that no one may be enslaved, tortured, disappeared, ethnically cleansed, or in any other way violate human rights.

Hua Chunying Rarely Admits “Children of Public Security Ministry Denied Visas to U.S.”

At a regular press conference at the Chinese Foreign Ministry today (13), a member of the media asked about news that a Chinese undergraduate student (i.e., a college freshman) was denied a visa at the U.S. Embassy on the grounds that her father was a member of the Ministry of Public Security.

Moreover, in the note from the U.S. visa official, it was mentioned that this is in light of the U.S. Secretary of State’s instruction to stop issuing visas for spouses and children of active duty personnel of the Chinese Immigration, Security, and Public Security Ministries; the note also mentioned that the reason is that the Chinese Communist Party refuses to accept Chinese citizens deported from the U.S. to China.

Hua Chunying replied, “I just saw the information, and my colleague called me a U.S. visa reminder, and the reminder wrote that the issuance of visas for the children of the above-mentioned status holders to attend U.S. schools is suspended.”

Hua Chunying then accused, “The United States is artificially destroying normal personnel exchanges between China and the United States for political reasons.” And she asked rhetorically, “Should China deny visas to U.S. intelligence and law enforcement personnel and their families to come to China?”

Why did the U.S. sanction Chinese Communist Party public security personnel?

Just yesterday (12), the U.S. Secretary of State announced sanctions against a Chinese Communist Party official who persecuted Falun Gong – Yu Hui, the former director of the 610 Office in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. Because “Yu Hui has committed serious human rights violations, namely the arbitrary detention of Falun Gong practitioners. Yu Hui and his immediate family members are ineligible to enter the United States.”

The U.S. has conducted 12 rounds of sanctions against dozens of CCP officials for serious human rights abuses, including those who persecute Falun Gong, Hong Kongers, Xinjiangers, and dissidents. In general, these officials and their spouses or children are not allowed to enter the U.S.; in severe cases, they are subject to property freezes and financial sanctions.

What do the Chinese public security officials do to the Chinese people? Illegal arrests, enforced disappearances, robberies, rape of women, sexual abuse, forced labor, drugging, torture, live organ harvesting, and more; netizens say you can think of as many bad words as you want to use, and you can give examples.

Hua Chunying goes on a rampage to scold Western powers about “human rights”

At today’s press conference, Hua Chunying went on a rant about the United States, Britain and Germany, saying that these countries always try to act as “human rights teachers”, but their own human rights problems are rampant; and about the ethnic cleansing of Indians in the United States, the centuries-old colonial history of Britain, the killing of indigenous people by German colonial forces in Namibia, and so on.

The problem is that what Hua Chunying said is history, but now these countries no longer have these colonial acts, but reflect on the review of the past and correct it. In contrast, the Chinese Communist Party continues to justify and deny its persecution of human rights, smear other countries, and embolden itself to continue persecuting its own people.

On May 12, representatives of the United Nations from the United States, Britain, Germany and other countries, along with Human Rights Watch and other organizations, held a side event at the United Nations on the human rights situation in Xinjiang, China, expressing concern about the “genocide” in Xinjiang and calling on Beijing to allow the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to visit Xinjiang. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights should be allowed to visit Xinjiang.

In response, Hua asked: If someone “asks you to open your door unconditionally and let them go to your home and rummage around, can you agree?” This is not about facts, she said, it is about sovereignty and dignity.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights: A Right for Everyone, Everywhere

In response to the Chinese Communist Party’s repeated claims that its persecution of its own people is an “internal matter,” a few days ago, U.S. Secretary of State John Blinken fired back at the United Nations in response to a speech by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, saying, “Some people believe that what governments do within their own borders is their own business, that human rights are a subjectively determined value, and that different societies see them differently.”

But, he said, “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights begins with the word ‘universal’ because member states agree that there are rights to which anyone anywhere should be entitled.”

Blinken said, “Domestic jurisdiction is not a blank check for any country to use as a justification to enslave, torture, disappear, ethnically cleanse, or in any other way violate the human rights of its people.”

The Chinese Communist Party has signed a series of “international rules.” Wang Yi also said at the meeting that he “upholds the basic norms of international relations, which are based on the purposes and principles of the UN Charter.”

But the question is, has the CCP done so?

Blinken mentioned that “all member states should fulfill their commitments – especially those with international legal effect, including the UN Charter, treaties and conventions, Security Council resolutions, international humanitarian law, and the rules and standards agreed upon by the World Trade Organization and numerous other international standard-setting organizations rules and standards agreed upon by the World Trade Organization and numerous other international standard-setting organizations.”

Communist Party Wants to Redefine “International Rules on Human Rights” and U.S. Will Push Back Hard

What to do if you can’t do it? In recent years, the Chinese Communist Party has sought to redefine human rights. It has argued that “the people’s happiness is the greatest human right; China has always regarded the right to survival and development as the primary basic human right,” and so on.

In response, Western scholars have given rebuttals. Voice of America recently quoted National Review journalist Jimmy Quinn as saying that the CCP has redefined human rights as a universal value and institutionalized its discourse through the influence it has been accumulating in international institutions.

“It’s creating a very dangerous framework,” Quinn said, “in which mass atrocities can be ignored and give way to a focus on economic development.”

Quinn said the CCP has focused its offensive in recent years on trying to change the way the international order is discussed, with the goal of reshaping those institutions and ideas that underpin it.

This is not simply pure propaganda or empty slogans, writes Nadège Rolland, a senior fellow at the National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR), a U.S. think tank, but is evidence of the CCP’s “leadership’s determination to change the norms that underpin the existing system and to lay the groundwork for a new international system that the Chinese Communist Party dreams of “.

In response, Blinken said, “When we see countries undermining the international order, pretending that the rules we have all agreed on do not exist, or simply breaking them at will, we will push back hard.”
