On Nov. 14, the Clinton City Council approved an agreement that endorsed a 15-year lease, to a “Chinese entity,” of the former Ashford University campus. This would be a lease to buy.
The U.S. is one of the few nations to allow foreign nationals to buy our property. Why do we allow it? Once a “Chinese entity” owns a big chunk of Clinton, it will exert influence in our political process.
I think the United States Congress should mandate no foreign nationals can buy parts of our country. Lease, yes, as does Thailand and many others. But buy America, no.
