In Sept. 2014, the Chinese Communist mouthpiece People’s Daily revealed that 1.18 million official Chinese families had settled abroad. According to data from the Beijing Municipal Procuratorate, over the past 30 years, about 4,000 officials were found to be corrupt. On average, each person has extracted about 100 million yuan (more than $15.7 million).

In 2011, the website of the China Central Bank published a report stating that since the mid-1990s, the total number of escaped and missing party members was around 18,000. These people have taken about 800 billion yuan ($125 billion) in public funds.

The U.S. is the first choice for corrupt Chinese officials. A 2011 Radio Free Asia report revealed, U.S. government statistics show that 74.5% of the sons of Chinese Communist Party officials (including retired ones) have U.S. green cards or citizenship, and 91% of their grandchildren hold U.S. citizenship or higher.

For example, the grandson of former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin, Jiang Zhicheng, is a U.S. citizen. 

Chen Yuan, the son of Chen Yun, former Vice Chairman of the CCP Central Committee, also has U.S. citizenship. 

Liu Chaoying – General Liu Huaqing’s daughter, Zhang Jianguo—daughter of former State Council spokesman Yuan Mu, Wu Guanzheng—granddaughter of former Secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, and son of General Zhang Wannians, all have settled in the US.

Zeng Wei, son of former Politburo Standing Committee member Zeng Qinghong, settled in Australia. 

Bo Guagua, son of Bo Xilai, former Politburo member, Secretary of Chongqing, has been a Canadian citizen for the past two years.

According to a report in Hong Kong’s “Dong Xiang” magazine, in May 2012, the CCP launched an internal investigation that found that more than 90% of the family members of the 17th Central Committee members had migrated abroad, mainly to the U.S.

Statistics show that in the 17th Central Committee (with 204 members and 172 alternate members), there are 187 members with relatives abroad; 142 alternate members have relatives abroad; 113 members of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection have relatives who have migrated abroad.

The magazine “Dong Xiang” revealed that in the “Two Sessions” (bicameral—National People’s Congress and National People’s Political Consultative Conference) in 2013, there are 179 people’s deputies nationwide with a foreign residence permit, foreign passports, and foreign nationality, accounting for 6% of the delegates. Meanwhile, this figure at the National People’s Political Consultative Conference is nearly 450 people, accounting for 20% of the delegates.

Dong Xiang’s report states that the 2013 National People’s Congress was derided as an “international conference”; while the National People’s Political Consultative Conference was derided as a “foreigner’s club.”
