Demanding Answers on the Chinese Communist Party Police Station in New York
This past week, Homeland Security Chairman Mark Green and I sent a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and FBI Director Christopher Wray requesting information on the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) clandestine ‘police stations’ uncovered in New York City and reportedly elsewhere in the country, which violates our nation’s sovereignty by suppressing Chinese dissidents living in the U.S., conducting surveillance, and spreading CCP propaganda.
In the letter, we write: “The Committee is examining the persistent threats posed by the CCP to U.S. homeland security, in which the CCP continues to brazenly violate U.S. autonomy. In February 2023, the CCP flew a surveillance balloon across the majority of the continental United States, collecting intelligence on sensitive military and homeland security sites. The Committee continues to monitor and take action against Chinese Confucius Institutes and other Chinese entities of concern, which are operated on U.S. college campuses at the behest of the CCP to commit academic espionage. While the New York Chinese police station has been shut down, our work to mitigate CCP threats to the homeland is far from over.”
