How America Is Becoming Unfriendly To Chinese Students, Scientists, And Scholars

The American immigration and justice system has appeared to target Chinese students, and ethnically Chinese researchers, with paranoid rhetoric, visa restrictions, and heightened policing and politicization of China-connected research, particularly in the past year and a half. Together, these three trends comprise the primary — but not only — components of the current atmosphere of suspicion and distrust in America of not just Beijing, but Chinese people as a whole. In other words, sinophobia. This article, which we are calling our “Sinophobia Tracker,” shows how those three trends have developed. We will regularly update it in the future to include further news.
