U.S. Offers Visa Sanctions, Blames Communist China for Refusing to Admit Chinese Illegal Immigrants

When it comes to illegal immigration in the United States, many people think of South American refugees, but there are actually many stranded Chinese illegal immigrants in the U.S. Recently, a State Department spokesperson told the media that federal agencies will hold the Chinese Communist regime accountable for refusing to accept stranded Chinese illegal immigrants.

A January report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security revealed that since October 2017, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), has filed 1,300 notices to the Chinese Communist Party requesting travel documents for deported Chinese nationals, but has never received a response. The number of deported Chinese nationals currently released into the U.S. community and awaiting deportation is upwards of 40,000, many of whom have committed felonies.

In an email to Epoch Times, a State Department spokesperson said that it would work with the Department of Homeland Security to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable in light of the repeated urging and lack of response.

The letter mentioned that the U.S. Secretary of State, has ordered U.S. consular officials to stop issuing visas to active members of the CCP’s Supervisory Committee, Ministry of State Security, and Ministry of Public Security, as well as their spouses and children under the age of 30.

In addition, visa sanctions apply to officials at the level of deputy director or above of the CCP’s National Immigration Bureau, as well as their spouses and children under the age of 21.
