Florida bans communist influence in schools, government and businesses

Two laws have already gone into effect in Florida that ban communist Chinese influence in schools, government and businesses. The governor of this jurisdiction, Ron DeSantis, warned about the danger of the interference of antagonistic nations to the values of the United States. Therefore, he took action at the legislative level.

DeSantis signed two bills aimed at stopping the influence of the Chinese Communist Party. It also includes six other foreign adversaries on college campuses. In addition, they seek to stop foreign espionage against companies.

“I signed legislation ensuring that foreign adversaries, like the Chinese Communist Party, cannot access Florida schools, government and businesses. This includes the prohibition of Confucius Institutes in our colleges and universities “, he told a press conference and spread it on social networks.

Infiltration through the Confucius Institute


The state of Florida hides behind an advance by China at the educational level in the United States. As of 2019, more than 100 Confucius Institutes have been established in the United States, these educational centers are controlled by the Chinese Communist Party and try to silence critics. They include at least 519 Confucius Classrooms in the US, more than any other country in the world. Confucius Classrooms are aimed at primary and secondary schools.

Texas found Chinese Communist Party infiltration both at the university level (including the University of Texas and Texas A&M campuses) and at the elementary and high school level (including the Coppell and Houston Independent School Districts).

According to the Texas Scorecard, “Using the name of an ancient Chinese philosopher as a Trojan Horse, the Confucius Institutes appear to be an international network of educational programs. They provide Chinese language instruction, organize cultural activities and welcome Chinese speakers. However, these organizations may have a secondary political purpose that goes beyond the teaching of the basic Chinese language and culture.”

They charge that the Confucius Institute network is controlled by the CCP Ministry of Education’s International Chinese Language Council Office, commonly known as “Hanban.” Hanban describes itself as a non-profit, non-governmental organization affiliated with the Chinese Ministry of Education. However, Hanban’s governing body is made up of representatives from 12 state ministries, including the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Florida law prohibits infiltration from 7 countries


Florida law would effectively ban Confucius Institutes. According to the US headquarters of the Confucius Institutes, there are currently four such centers in Florida.

Before being signed by the governor, the bills passed unanimously at the legislative level. In fact, at the federal level, there is a bipartisan initiative to regulate Chinese land purchases. Since an alert was lit after a purchase of land by communist China near a military base. Following that line, DeSantis intends to limit the influence of communist regimes, even in the private sector.

Contrary to the discourse of the “progressive” left that would accuse this measure of being “xenophobic” and “exclusive,” DeSantis signed House Bill 7017 and Bill 1523 surrounded by Asian-American leaders and politicians from Florida.

According to the governor’s office, the purpose of these laws is to “protect Florida’s higher education institutions and government from foreign influence and combat corporate espionage by keeping Florida’s intellectual property safe within state boundaries.”

HB 7017 prohibits seven countries from entering into agreements with Florida’s public universities if “a program’s curriculum or values ​​are dictated by the country, not the university.” Countries on the list include China, Venezuela, Syria, North Korea, Iran, Cuba and Russia.

Additionally, the legislation also requires stricter oversight of deals with foreign countries to ensure contracts do not threaten U.S. national security. It also strengthens transparency around gifts from foreign countries to Florida universities.

In parallel, a related bill, HB 1523, targets trade secret theft. The legislation seeks to combat corporate espionage.

Chinese citizen threatens national security


For example, Amin Yu, a Chinese citizen living in Orlando as a permanent resident, smuggled underwater drone parts from US companies to Harbin University, a state university in China that conducts military research.

“Yu used two companies he founded in the US to purchase systems and components for underwater vehicles under the direction of a Harbin University professor,” according to the report.

In the face of national security threats like this, Florida bans Communist Chinese influence. As well as six other nations, in educational, corporate and governance level.
