GOP lawmaker says the country needs to 'wake up' over 'extremely concerning' purchases of farmland by China

CHIP ROY: Ons het H.R. 3847, that’s Curing America’s Land From Foreign Interference Act, om dit spesifiek te probeer afdwing, om die Chinese Kommunistiese Party te probeer keer, ons vyand, ons teëstander, from being able to pick up and buy American land. Can you imagine, can you imagine if we woke up one day and oh Khrushchev is buying up a bunch of dirt across the country? Can you imagine what we would do? The reaction would’ve been off the charts but yet we are kind of asleep at the switch right now while the Chinese Communist Party is taking specific steps like Michael outlined to attack our country.

WHY IS CHINA BUYING AMERICAN FARMLAND?

Terloops, it’s not just China. Ons het 37 million acres in this country that are foreign-owned. That is essentially the size of Iowa. We got to wake up. We need to wake up here in Washington and prohibit this and stop it and not allow them to have our agriculture products soos 140,000 acres next to Laughlin Air Force base in Texas in south Texas and Val Verde, Texas. Extremely concerning from a national security standpoint.
