Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “House Republicans sound the alarm over a China-linked food mill near N.D. Air Force base”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Dozens of House Republicans told the Biden administration they fear a Chinese company’s purchase of farmland near a military base in North Dakota will imperil national security.

Rep. Carlos Gimenez, Florida Republican, sounded the alarm about the Fufeng Group’s purchase near Grand Forks Air Force Base in a new letter signed by 50 colleagues and sent to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. They fear the company will be too cozy with the communist government in Beijing.

“The Grand Forks Air Force Base has exceptional intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities, making the recently purchased land the ideal location to closely monitor and intercept military activity,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter obtained by Fox News. “The presence of a CCP-affiliated corporation near a military installation potentially undermines the integrity of our high-capability military bases, jeopardizing our strategic interests.”

They said the acquisition will set a poor precedent and could lead to new acquisitions by companies with ties to the communist government.

They also said foreign companies have too big of a stake — 37.6 million acres as of 2021— in U.S. agricultural land.
