U.S. Immigration Ban on Chinese Communist Party Members


The United States has imposed a broad immigration ban on members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP): they will no longer be able to become US citizens or obtain a residence permit.

US Citizenship and Immigration Services issued the following notice: “In the absence of exceptional circumstances, any immigrant who is or was a member of the Communist or any other totalitarian party within or outside the country is not admitted to the United States.”

The Trump administration has been a frequent critic of the CCP lately for its role in hiding the coronavirus outbreak.

The changes are part of “a wide range of legislative initiatives passed by Congress to combat threats to the security of the United States,” the Immigration Service said.
