According to the sources, the Trump administration is going to put new background checks and other restrictions on Chinese students in the US.
This June, the US state department shortened the length of visas for Chinese graduate students studying aviation, robotics and advanced manufacturing from five years to one.
US officials said that their goal was to remove the risk of spying and theft of intellectual property in important areas of national security.
But now the Trump administration wants to examine Chinese students with extra checks before they attend a US school.
Trump administration is considering checking the phone records of students, keeping an eye on Chinese and US social media platforms for everything that raise concern about students’ intentions in the US.
It also includes affiliations with government organizations, a US official and three congressional and university sources said.
