The administration of American President Donald Trump is considering new restrictions on Chinese students entering the U.S.
U.S. officials say increased concerns over spying and the loss of new technologies are among the reasons. İn June, the U.S. State Department shortened the length of stay for visas given to Chinese graduate students studying in several fields. The fields include flight, robotics and some kinds of manufacturing. Visas were shortened from five years to one.
At the time, the officials said the goal was to limit the risk of spying and of the loss of intellectual property that is important to national security. Now, the Trump administration is considering whether to carry out additional investigations of Chinese students attending U.S. schools.
Reuters news agency reported that officials want to examine student phone calls. They also are considering looking at students’ personal accounts on Chinese and U.S. social media sites.
Security officials are expected to train education officials on how to uncover spying, as they now do for people in the government, a U.S. official said.
The U.S. State Department said, “The department helps to ensure that those who receive U.S. visas are eligible and pose no risk to national interests.”
The Chinese government has said that the U.S. overstates the problem for political reasons.
China’s ambassador to the U.S., Cui Tiankai, said “Why should anybody accuse them as spies?”
