Nonprofit Head Bragged About Hosting Chinese Police Station Right In Front Of NYC Mayor Eric Adams

The chairman of a New York City nonprofit bragged about housing an allegedly illegal Chinese police station in front of Mayor Eric Adams during a 2022 gala, video footage shows.

At the America ChangLe Association’s 24th anniversary banquet, its chairman, Lu Jianshun, took the stage and said the organization had established a “Fuzhou Police Department” within its headquarters, footage from the Sept. 26, 2022 event shows. The video also shows Adams was sitting in the front row.

“In 2020, we collaborated with the Changle District Court to establish a so-called Changle Overseas Chinese Dispute Litigation Center for Foreign Affairs and to help our fellow Changlenese to fight for judicial rights and interests,” Lu Jianshun said during his 2022 banquet speech, which was translated into English as he spoke, footage shows.

“At the very beginning of the year of 2022, in order to better implement the motherland government’s policy of benefitting the Overseas Chinese, our councilor of our association — which part of the — our councilor of our association, Mr. Lu Jianwang was invited to participate in the opening of ‘The World End Of The World,’ which is Overseas 110 network platform founded by the Fuzhou Public Security Bureau, and was also entrusted to set up the Fuzhou Police Department in the Changle Association of America,” Lu Jianshun said.

The United States District Court in the Eastern District of New York unsealed a complaint in April 2023 charging two members of America Changle Association — one of whom was Lu Jianshun’s brother, Lu Jianwang — with conspiring to act as agents of the People’s Republic of China and crimes related to opening and operating an illegal overseas police station.

The Eastern District of New York’s unsealed complaint states that “Lu Jianwang and others” operated an “unofficial police station” on behalf of the Fuzhou branch of China’s “primary domestic law enforcement agency,” the Ministry of Public Security. By January 2022, the Fuzhou Public Security Bureau had opened 30 such international police stations, dubbed “110 overseas stations,” according to the complaint.

The Ministry of Public Security ordered Lu Jianwang to “identify the locations of Chinese persons of interests in the United States,” including a dissident living in California, the complaint alleges.

The New York Post has reported that sources close to the mayor claim Adams was unaware of America Changle Association’s police station at the time of the nonprofit’s banquet. However, video footage shows Lu Jianshun discussing the police station and its operations during the gala, with Adams sitting front and center.

“We started a new division in our association, which is helping everybody to collect their driver’s license, to register and to get their ID card from their hometown,” Lu Jianshun said during the 2022 gala.

Later in the evening, Adams was welcomed on stage and delivered a speech praising America Changle Association, footage from the event shows. Adams was joined on stage by Lu Jianwang and Chen Jinping, both of whom would later face federal charges, according to photos posted in an article by overseas.fjsen.com.

“This is such an important organization to empower our Chinese American community, particularly those from the Changle district in Fujian province,” Adams said during his speech at the 2022 banquet, footage from the event shows. “As a city, this is an important businessmen and women, you are the foundation of this community in general, but throughout this entire city.”

“Your organization has been instrumental in our efforts to provide life-sustaining support to our newest New Yorkers and their descendants,” Adams continued. “And, so, I celebrate you on this 24th anniversary for the cultural contributions and how you continue to make this city a great place to raise children and families.”

Adams also acknowledged the presence of several other New York Democratic politicians, footage from the event shows.

“I’m especially happy to share the table with our amazing councilwoman, Sandra Ung, and our great senator in the state of New York, Senator John Liu, who have strong voices speaking on behalf of your community,” Adams said.

After his speech, Adams presented Lu Jianshun with a “Certificate of Recognition,” according to event footage.

In addition to Adams, several of the other New York Democratic politicians or their representatives also took the stage during the banquet, footage shows. This included New York City Council member Sandra Ung, New York State Sen. John Liu and U.S. Rep. Grace Meng’s “community liaison,” Sydney Li, all of whom delivered speeches in Mandarin.

Winnie Greco, special assistant to Adams, also delivered a speech in Mandarin, footage from the event shows.

During her speech, Greco welcomed several staff members of Adams’ office as well as two New York Police Department officers to the stage, telling the audience to reach out to the mayor’s office for help with operating a small business or immigration matters, according to event footage.

In April 2023, the DCNF reported that Adams and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer attended an apparent 2022 fundraiser for Meng with Lu Jianwang at Crown One Restaurant in New York City.

Meng has attended multiple events alongside Lu Jianwang, including the September 2016 opening of America Changle Association’s Manhattan headquarters, the DCNF reported. During the event, Meng stood beside Lu Jianwang during the ribbon-cutting ceremony, photos from the event showed.

Adams, Greco, Meng, Li, Liu and Ung did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

America Changle Association, Chen and the Lu brothers could not be reached for comment.

Dems Ask Each Other to Stop Busing Migrants

“You must stop busing migrants to Chicago and New York City.”

Last week I discussed the outpouring of humanitarian kindness by Colorado’s Gov Polis in shipping unwanted migrants to New York City. Don’t mistake this for the ‘bad’ kind of busing that DeSantis and Abbot do. No, in Polis’ words, it’s “honoring our values by treating people with dignity and respect.”

I’m not so sure that shipping people to NYC or Chiraq treats them with dignity and respect. NYC and Chicago certainly don’t.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot demanded Saturday that Colorado Gov. Jared Polis stop busing asylum seekers to their cities, saying they are “over capacity.”

“We respectfully demand that you cease and desist sending migrants to New York City and Chicago,” Adams and Lightfoot wrote in a letter to Polis. “Since December of 2022, Chicago and New York City have received hundreds of individuals from Colorado.”

“You must stop busing migrants to Chicago and New York City,” the mayors wrote. “In the case of family reunification, let us work together to ensure that people are reconnected with their loved ones, however sending migrants to our cities whose systems are over capacity, where they may struggle to find shelter and other services is wrong and further victimizes these most vulnerable individuals.”

Polis previously insisted, “too many people, in our opinion, view this through a political lens or as playing politics — and it’s terrible that in some places, people have been used as political props. But what we are doing here is just honoring our values by treating people with dignity and respect.”

Adams and Lightfoot should honor their values by putting the migrants on buses to Denver. Or trains or planes. The whole thing can become a paradox in which the migrants are being perpetually shipping around the country without ever stopping.

Or, and this is racist madness, we can build a border wall, enforce border security, pull out of the international refugee treaty that demands we give open the door to migrants, and then ship all the arrivals back where they came from. By bus. Even if it’s across the ocean.

But that would be madness. This way is so much better. Once all the migrants are bused to Chicago and NYC, we can build a border wall around them.

These Democratic Mayors Said Their Cities Were ‘Sanctuaries.’ Then The Migrants Showed Up

Democratic mayors who once touted their cities as sanctuaries for illegal migrants are now complaining about receiving migrants bused from the border.

Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott began busing illegal migrants to Washington, D.C., in April, New York City in early August and Chicago in late August. Republican Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey also began busing illegal migrants to Washington in May.

All of the destinations are considered sanctuary cities, which means illegal migrants’ immigration statuses won’t be reported to authorities. Despite their open rhetoric towards illegal migrants, the Democrat mayors running those cities are now complaining about the arriving buses.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser declared a “public emergency” Thursday to surge more resources as the city continues to receive illegal migrants bused from Texas and Arizona.

Bowser spokesperson LaToya Foster referred the Daily Caller News Foundation to the announcement, which established an Office of Migrant Services.

“We hope this will address any questions that you have that clearly demonstrates and details Mayor Bowser’s commitment and hard work,” Foster said.

Bowser has tweeted since 2016 about Washington’s status as a “sanctuary” for illegal migrants, but is critical of Abbott’s and Ducey’s effort.

“Washington, DC is a sanctuary city. We protect the rights and humanity of all our residents, and our #DCValues and our local culture are guided by a celebration of diversity and inclusivity,” Bowser said in 2018.

Lightfoot complained on Sept. 1 that Abbott’s effort is “racist and xenophobic,” despite the fact that she’s advertised Chicago as a sanctuary city for years.

“Yes, Chicago must be a sanctuary city,” Lightfoot said in 2019. “We’ve got to stand up to the Trump administration’s racist, anti-immigrant terror and make sure every Chicagoan is safe, regardless of citizenship status. And we’ve got to strengthen the Welcoming City Ordinance by eliminating carve-outs.”

Adams, who has advocated for his city to “remain a sanctuary,” called Abbott’s busing strategy “horrific.”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has encountered over 1.9 million migrants at the southern border between Oct. 2021 and July 2022.

Abbott has bused over 7,900 illegal migrants to Washington, over 2,200 illegal migrants to New York City and over 300 illegal migrants to Chicago, according to a statement his office shared with the DCNF. Ducey has sent 1,715 illegal migrants to Washington, his office told the DCNF.

Adams’ and Lightfoot’s offices didn’t respond to the DCNF’s requests for comment.
