Many CCP Officials’ Descendants Hold Dual Citizenship
Family members of CCP’s high-ranking officials often
hold permanent residency of other countries.
These officials also abused their power to bring their
children great fortunes in China.
These CCP officials’ descendants are referred to as
the “Chinese overseas corruption army”.
The number of Chinese students is the largest among
international students in the U.S., which constitutes
the No. 1 source of the U.S. educational revenue.
The children of CCP officials in the U.S. live luxuriously.
They usually arrive before college age, and often
live in upscale apartments and drive expensive cars.
As a blog posting on Sina.com revealed,
according to U.S. government statistics, 74.5% of CCP
minister-level officials’ (including retired officials)
children hold U.S. green card or citizenship.
The percentage increases to 91% among
grandchildren of these officials…”

However, the posting still attracted much attention
due to its fast circulation before deletion.
It is also said that many family members of high-ranking
officials hold positions in large Chinese enterprises,
and that most billionaires in China are family members
of these high-ranking officials.
For example, Wang Jun, son of Wang Zhen, is the
president of Citic Group, a company worth 701.4 billion
RMB; and Wang Jun’s son, Wang Jingjing, is the vice
chairman of CSEP, a company worth 166.6 billion RMB.
Hu Haifeng, son of Hu Jintao, is the president of
NUCTECH, a company worth 83.8 billion RMB;
and Li Xiaopeng, son of Li Peng, is the president of
Huaneng Group, a company worth 17.6 billion RMB…
According to China Comment magazine, corrupted
officials caused a 5-billion-RMB loss to China’s
national wealth. This number only includes
documented cases of corruption. When included,
the undocumented cases of corruption would
put this number to over 200 billion RMB.
The corruption in China has spread across the globe,
and the family members of these corrupted officials
are called the “Chinese overseas corruption army.”
Many Internet users believe that the reason these
officials send their descendants overseas is to better
cover up their grey incomes.
Jin Zhong, editor in chief of Hong Kong Open magazine
said to RFA, foreign identity is a symbol of privilege
and an escape route for these CCP officials.
If any changes occur in China, they will be able to
escape to the U.S. Therefore the U.S. green card
becomes a certificate privilege.
