While we acknowledge the importance of the topic of this hearing and that the Chinese Government is in some instances engaging in economic espionage and intellectual property theft, Advancing Justice | AAJC seeks to draw the subcommittee’s attention to our concerns about the FBI’s surveillance, profiling, and false prosecutions for espionage of students, scientists, and researchers of Asian descent. Biased public statements by public officials combined with data and individual cases indicating that there have been wrongful arrests and prosecutions of innocent Asian Americans have raised red flags for us that the FBI may be engaged in biased policing.
