A bill introduced in Congress would prevent members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from obtaining U.S. citizenship if passed.
“It is clear members of the CCP do not share our American ideals and values. We should not permit them to enjoy all of the privileges that come with being an American citizen,” said U.S. Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-Pa.), who proposed the new law, in a June 15 press release.
Reschenthaler summarized the adverse behavior of the members of the CCP, not only against the United States but also against other countries.
“The CCP continues to engage in aggressive and reckless behavior on the global stage, including stealing American intellectual property, violating international trade laws, committing heinous human rights abuses,” Reschenthaler said.
“And more recently, failing to act and responsibly share information that could have contained the deadly COVID-19 [CCP Virus] pandemic,” he added.
The bill with the title: End Chinese Communist Citizenship Act, would complement the existing legislation, which is too vague to be applied with certainty to CCP members.
The same bill provides for an exception for Chinese citizens who leave the CCP, and another for relatives of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents.
The bill introduced by Reschenthaler is one of many measures by which U.S. lawmakers are seeking to protect their nation from the continuing abuses perpetrated by the CCP.
It is not only about aggression against the United States since around 120 countries requested an independent investigation for the mishandling of the CCP Virus pandemic by the CCP.
Among the many conflicts and aggressions caused by the CCP, the one that stands out the most is that caused by the CCP Virus, which has already cost 440,000 lives and incalculable losses in many countries.
For a group of U.S. legislators, the CCP intentionally acted against global health.
“After months of investigating, it’s become crystal clear the Chinese Communist Party’s coverup of the coronavirus, especially in the early days of the outbreak, played a significant role in turning what could have been a local epidemic into a global pandemic,” Sen. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) told Fox News.
One investigation argues that if the CCP had reported the CCP Virus in a timely manner, the number of infections would have been reduced by up to 95 percent, and thus the global disaster it still causes would have been lessened.
