U.S. Department of Agriculture data shows that as of 2020, China owns 338,000 acres of U.S. farmland. Although the acreage is less than 1% of U.S. farmland owned by foreign nationals, the acquisition of land has raised national security issues. Half of the land owned by Chinese citizens is located in Texas.
From Daily Caller:
The U.S. government has also identified Chinese intelligence threats emanating from U.S. urban areas as well. America Changle Association, a New York City social group allegedly tied to Chinese intelligence, closed recently after the FBI raided the organization’s Manhattan office sometime in fall 2022. Changle’s closure came several months after the DCNF found that during a 2021 video conference, Chinese officials identified Changle’s former chairman as having worked with an alleged Chinese intelligence service.
