#United States revokes Visas of 1000 Chinese students considered as security risk. The US says it has revoked the visas of more than 1,000 Chinese students and researchers who have been deemed to be a security risk.
Following this move is a proclamation by President Donald Trump in May, which is aimed at Chinese nationals suspected of having ties to the military. He said some had stolen data and intellectual property.
The state department gave no details. China has not commented.
Nearly 370,000 students from China enrolled at US universities in 2018-19.
A state department spokeswoman described those declined a visa as “high-risk graduate students and research scholars.”
She said they were a “small subset” of the total number of Chinese students.
“We continue to welcome legitimate students and scholars from China who do not further the Chinese Community.
