The Chinese Way

There are around 120,000 foreign residents now in China. They are from across the globe and cover all races doing a variety of work. Yet, China, like America, also has an illegal immigration problem they are trying to tackle. Of the 120,000, many are either in country illegally or their proper visas have expired. The visa allowing foreigners to live there expires every 90 days. To re-up, the foreigner must pay and wait considerable time. The person actually must leave China and then return at a border crossing. Many travel to Mongolia or other border countries and recross in the same day. It is a BIG hassle.

The Chinese method is simple, direct and hard. Since many foreigners can be spotted miles away by police, the person is stopped, asked for papers. Police have checkpoints in known "foreigner" housing areas where visa papers must be shown. Beijing has given the police 100 days to cleanse China of illegals. The method is ruthless and abrupt , if your papers are not on you or in good order. To make it clear, your professional status is of no consequence. That is what happened to American, Melissa Chan, a news reporter in Beijing for al-Jazeera. She attempted to renew her visa and was detained. China refused to renew it, no doubt on political grounds, yet, it stunned her as she had lived there for over year, her belongings were in her apartment, the car. Now what? Good question.

Some of the crackdown on illegals is a result from a video on their equivalent to YouTube, Youku. An intoxicated British man is sexually attacking a Chinese woman. Chinese men pull the other off and start beating him. The man falls to the ground where more Chinese come and kick and beat him helpless until police arrive. Police indicated the man was only a tourist and legally there. This video has given foreigners a bad rap as it has been viewed 10 million times.

The Chinese face a huge task to deal with their own illegals working in China, despite the benefit they bring to their economy.

      Perrya, regarding Juarez, I'm talking about its evolution over the past 40 years...and how it relates to illegal immigration.

      The cartels, that is only one, more recent facet. I'm looking to the creation of the maquila zones, which were expanded under NAFTA..turning a relatively remote, frontier region into high density business centers..as well as a breeding ground for far worse than cartel violence (the feminicide that has been going on for the past decade, for example).

      Then we can discuss the bi-national/multinational solutions that need to be (and in some cases are) implemented in order to create an environment enriching to each party.

      I'm sorry brother, I thought you were trying to deny the Reptilian infiltration. I agree, the violence in Juarez and places like Nuevo Laredo is horrible, and it has been for a long time. What scares me now is the Zetas fighting turf wars in towns like Cuidad Acuna, which was peaceful just a few years ago. Take care brother.

      Both of you are losing me. Juarez is a killing ground for drug cartels

      Are you going to hold this hub hostage, Jimmy?

      Did I not mention the Nazi-reptilian world government infiltration agenda enough for this hub to stay up?

      This has gone beyond off topic...

      Perrya, I'd like to discuss Ciudad Juarez with you.

      I suggest you shut down this hub ASAP.

      Perrya, I find mikelong's dialogue suspicious. I feel your hub may have been infiltrated by a Reptilian.

      You need to read my whole statement.

      I only mentioned Russia in regards of dismissing the "Communist" epithet raised towards China.

      If my main purpose was to talk about Neo-Nazis, believe me, I would be thorough. Anyone who follows my writing will know that I am very long-winded...right Perrya?

      Join forces with me and Old Poolman, we are in this for the long haul.

      mikelong, the neo-nazis you talk about are actually Reptilians disguised as neo-nazis. You are right that they are infiltrating the Russian government, but they are also infiltrating all governments. You are spreading the truth, but you need to spread the whole truth.

      That's about as real as "Chinese people speak Chinese"...

      We are off topic, but that is because someone decided to counter China's racism with an irrelevant economic system.

      Are we off topic? China is communist with a dash of capitalism.

      And not much has changed there. Russia is home to more neo-Nazis than anywhere else, and they have also infiltrated the government...they can care less about Hitler, per say (though his birthday is very popular there), but they favor the idea of racial superiority..just with Russians at the top.

      It isn't actually communism if everyone is not equally involved. The Soviet Union was not Communist...they were, rather, elitist favoring ethnic Russians over everyone else.

      Well, there is also communism.

      There is another name for what they do in China. It's called racism.

      immigration is such a sticky issue for all countries. It will be interesting to see how China does deal with.

      We don't want to become China, do we?

      If we want to solve our undocumented issue problem we have to get to the roots of the issue. This begins with assessing U.S. government relations with other governments who are harming their own populations.

      Speaking specifically of illegal immigrants from Mexico, over the past 10-20 years the bulk have come from the south...Oaxaca and Chiapas in particular.

      The Mexican government, having found oil in Chiapas, has been using draconian measures against the rural, and mostly indigenous, people in that state. This is colonialism at its finest...

      The European-blooded Mexican elite are again wading into areas that are primarily Indian, deciding the people are worthless, and has been systematically trying to remove people from their farms/properties.

      With no legal recourse (and with Mexican military units trained/armed/and prodded by the American government), and little to no way to keep going, many have come here.

      When I was living in a small ejido a few hours north of Durango City, I marveled at the beauty of the land, and the productivity of the soil. But right down the road is an American factory...with slums clustered around it. The Americans pay workers there 50 dollars a week....they work 10-12 hour days 6 days a week. There is no job security...there are no benefits of any kind.. But the cash money is drawing youth away from an independent way of life.

      There are more Salvadorians living in the United States than in El Salvador..both legally and illegally. But what has driven them here?

      Shall we reminisce on the implications of Iran-Contra? It's directly connected.

      We need to use our power to do much more abroad...and much less when it comes to destructive behaviors. We can't be manipulating other countries, especially those that don't worry about leaving "undesirables" in their population behind..
