a new bill offered by Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., would ban corporations and individuals affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party from buying or leasing U.S. farmland.
The bill, called the “This Land is Our Land Act,” would force connected entities to divest ownership of American farmland within two years or face fines and penalties.
“No Chinese corporation or individual associated with the CCP should be permitted to own American farmland. It undermines the integrity of our nation’s food supply chain, it presents national security threats when the land is in close proximity to military installations, and it hurts American farmers,” Hawley said.
His bill comes after a Chinese spy balloon was allowed to float across America before being shot down, and amidst Americans’ growing fears of Communist China as the United States’ most powerful enemy worldwide. Beijing’s aggressiveness has only grown under Biden’s feckless foreign policy.
