U.S. Rep Stands Up to Chinese-Funded, University Programs
May 17, 2023
Rep. Michelle Steel says her constituents know first-hand the terrors of communism and refuse to see that become an issue in America. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) often promotes its communist propaganda through Confucius Institutes, which receive Chinese funding, in American Universities. Rep. Steel has a plan to combat this by having these universities file as foreign agents since they are receiving funding for promoting foreign agendas.
Ivy League universities such as Yale, Harvard and Princeton have reported receiving millions in foreign funding from China. In 2021 alone, federal data revealed higher education received $120 million in contracts from China.
