Beijing in drive on illegal foreigners


Beijing has launched a 100-day crackdown targeting foreigners who have entered the country illegally, stayed longer than allowed or who are working in the capital illegally.

The crackdown by the Public Security Bureau, which will run from today to the end of August, makes Beijing the second mainland jurisdiction to clamp down on foreigners, after a big increase in the number living and working on the mainland as a result of the opportunities offered by its formerly booming economy.

Guangdong‘s provincial government introduced a regulation in May last year to encourage the public to report violations involving foreigners, including illegal entry, overstaying, working without permits or doing business without licences.

Official data shows that there are about 200,000 foreigners in Beijing on any given day, including 120,000 who live in the capital but who might not have a job or work legally.

Figures from the Public Security Bureau in 2009 show the number of foreigners staying in Beijing for longer than six months stood at 110,000 – including 40,000 workers, 30,000 students, 30,000 foreigners who are not on a work or study visa and 10,000 diplomats and their relatives, China Daily reported.

Beijing police said that official records showed that foreigners who did not have permanent residence and a job were more likely to engage in illegal activities.

A British man who sexually assaulted a Chinese woman was beaten up outside a central Beijing department store last Tuesday night. A video clip showing the assault, which was uploaded on the internet, triggered an outpouring of anti-foreigner sentiment on the mainland.

Beijing police said that the man, a British national with a tourist visa, was drunk.

During the crackdown, police will comb Beijing neighbourhoods popular with expatriates checking for violations. The public is also being encouraged to come forward with information about suspicious activities involving foreigners.

Foreigners could face fines of up to 10,000 yuan or three to 10 days’ detention for entering the country illegally.

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
