NOT FOR ALL THE TEA IN CHINA! DeSantis Intros Plan to Stop CCP from Buying Up U.S. Land

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.23.22

Florida Governor Ron Desantis is taking action against the Chinese Communist Party; the Sunshine State gov wants to limit Chinese influence in the U.S. by introducing additional protections for land buys and contracts.

“The actions seek to block the nations from being able to engage in espionage or influence operations within the state and preventing purchases of agricultural land and lands surrounding military bases by those governments or their agents,” The Daily Wire reports.

“From server farms to farmland, the Communist Party of China has been worming its way into our nation’s data storage systems and buying up tracts of land near sensitive national security sites,” DeSantis said in a statement. “By prohibiting the purchase of lands, state contracts with Chinese technology firms, and the infiltration of CCP-affiliated groups such as Confucius Institutes, Florida is leading the way to protect our nation from international foes.”

“The Chinese Communist Party cheats on trade, steals our intellectual property, and produces deadly drugs like fentanyl that are pouring into our southern border,” said Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez. “Governor DeSantis’ announcements today are not only critical to protecting American interests and Florida farmlands but also to maintaining our national security. Florida will never kowtow to the oppressive regime of China.”

DeSantis shared the news on Twitter.

“Today, I took action to protect Floridians from the bad intentions of adversaries abroad, such as the Chinese Communist Party. This Legislative Session, I am proposing additional protections for our homeland against threats arrayed by those who seek our nation’s downfall.”
