Great that the corruption and incompetence at DHS is now a tool for Chinese intelegence
This is why we need to take their toys away from them and stand them in the corner. Instead the DHS buy access to massive amounts of data on innocent US citizens, immigrants, and foreign nationals, without sufficient oversight or access controls, and in most cases without even the fig leaf of a warrant involved.
If these idiots need access to this kind of data, they clearly aren't capable of managing it themselves. This spy ring was busted because one of them tried to bribe the wrong person, not because anyone was paying attention to the fact that they were profiling political dissidents that were later the targets of crimes. This campaign has been happening long enough and in the open enough that the US government needs to say and do lot more than just stand back as this case trickles through the courts.
Chinese state backed foreign agents have been targeting, stalking, beating, and killing people on US soil here in California since at least the trump administration. Neither he nor Biden has seriously dealt with the issue, which may in fact include the mass shooting of a Taiwan linked church here. Instead of DHS targeting the Chinese nationals committing these crimes against people on US soil, we have DHS agents working FOR them.
