Chinese spies will use proposed STEM visas

Minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has introduced a bill sponsored by House Democrats to increase competitiveness with China, claiming visa regulations for STEM students will allow China to send more spies. than coming to America as a student.

The Sunday morning futures contract The segment begins with McCarthy criticizing the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) China-related actions.

“She has defended China from any investigation into the origins of Covid even though it has killed more than 900,000 Americans,” McCarthy said. “She’s stopping American athletes from protesting the Olympics and now she’s producing a bill that sends Americans taxpayer money to China.”

McCarthy said the US COMPETITION Act is an “Act of Recognition” because it “sends $8 billion to the United Nations green climate fund that gave China $100 million.” Recent bills pass House of Representatives by an almost partisan vote of 222-210.

“It has unlimited green cards [for skilled workers]”McCarthy announced.

McCarthy’s statement is not entirely accurate, although the bill remove the digits on a green card specifically for individuals with doctoral degrees in certain STEM fields.

Other immigration provisions in the bill include new visas to encourage foreign entrepreneurs to launch tech startups in the US and temporary protected status for eligible Hong Kong residents in 18 months after the bill was enacted.

Under the Trump administration, more than 1,000 visas Chinese students and researchers have been canceled due to alleged ties to the military in a policy widely criticized of universities and students.

McCarthy pledged that if Republicans retake the House, he would form a bipartisan China committee to address issues such as increasing competitiveness and investigating the origins of Covid-19.

“You take the Democrats action, I don’t know what China has done to these people, but it has to be just as powerful because their actions each time stop and harm the people,” McCarthy said. We are defending China.
