Letter: Offer real answers on China’s land grab

In Carl Liechty’s letter to Mark Figley on Thursday morning, I failed to see where you provided any answers to the fact that China is gobbling up U.S. soil at an unprecedented rate. The latest USDA figures show China owns 191,000 acres in the USA. Communist China’s most recent purchase is 300 acres in North Dakota next to one of our military bases!

Oh, by the way, I just read an article that states the U.S. Border Patrol has seized enough fentanyl to kill every person in the United States. That’s over 330 million at last count. And guess where that killer drug comes from? China!

So I implore you to take action and call President Biden and ask him to shut down the borders. That would help curb the drug problem, and then ask the Democratically controlled Congress to pass a law prohibiting the sale of our lands to Communist China.

So my answer is we call our legislators and get the ball rolling to shut down Communist China’s attack on the USA. What do you think, Carl?
