Administration of US President Donald Trump is considering banning Chinese Communist Party members and their families from entering the USA.
According to preliminary information, the project is under discussion. At the same time, it may also allow the U.S. government to cancel visas of Communist Party members and their families who are currently in the country, which will entail their expulsion.
In addition, according to the newspaper, there are proposals to restrict entry into the United States for Chinese People’s Liberation Army soldiers and heads of Chinese state enterprises. The details of the plan have not yet been fully approved, sources said Trump may reject it.
On July 14, U.S. President Donald Trump signed a decree cancelling economic preferences for Hong Kong and imposing duties on China due to the decision of the Chinese leadership to restrict the autonomy of the region.
China’s National Security Law came into force on June 30. It identifies four types of crimes in Hong Kong that are considered a threat to statehood: separatist activities, attempts to undermine state power, terrorist activities, conspiracy with foreign states or forces to threaten national security.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the Chinese authorities are imposing censorship in Hong Kong, described by the author of the novel anti-utopia “1984” George Orwell.
