  • Here's a reason to end US immigration.

    Fears about foreign espionage have resurfaced in the Silicon Valley with the case of Chinese businessman Qing Chang Jiang.



    Jiang is at least the fourth Chinese native indicted since October on charges involving the shipment of equipment or trade secrets to China from the nerve center of the U.S. technology industry.


    He was to be arraigned Thursday, and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.


    Jiang, president and sole U.S. employee of EHI Group USA Inc./Araj Electronics, was arrested Jan. 10 for allegedly shipping three microwave amplifiers that could be used to improve the quality of long-distance calls "” or to make intercontinental ballistic missiles more accurate.


    Prosecutors say Jiang, a Chinese citizen, shipped the amplifiers without a license to a company in Shijianzhuang, China, that shares its address with the 54th Research Institute, a Chinese military agency. Prosecutors allege Jiang shipped the amplifiers for use by the Chinese military.


    Most exports to the military agency are outlawed. The U.S. government says the agency poses an "unacceptable risk of diversion to developing weapons of mass destruction."


    His lawyer, Lupe Martinez, denied Jiang is part of any organized Chinese effort to get U.S. technology and questioned whether corporate giants that legally export billions of dollars in equipment to China are held to the same standard.


    Martinez also said prosecutors are exaggerating the danger posed by Jiang, who has lived in the United States legally since 1995 and has a wife and son in China.


    In the three years since the Justice Department established a computer hacking and intellectual property unit in Northern California, there has been a "significant increase" in the number of illegal technology shipments being reported, according to Ross Nadel, the prosecutor who leads the unit.


    But, Nadel added, the increase may stem from companies being more willing to report such crimes.


    "In large part, what gets on our radar screen depends on the victim company's willingness and quickness to come forward to law enforcement," Nadel said.


    Prosecutors worry Jiang may have been illegally exporting technology to China since 1998, when he bought what was once one of the world's fastest computers from a federal weapons lab.


    He bought the computer, once used for classified projects, from Sandia National Laboratories in a sale one Sandia official later described as an act of "enormous stupidity." The computer was repurchased and never left the United States, and Jiang was never charged in the case.


    His arrest followed the December indictments of Fei Ye, a U.S. citizen, and Ming Zhong, a permanent U.S. resident, on charges of allegedly stealing trade secrets from Sun Microsystems, Transmeta Corp., NEC Electronics and Trident Microsystems. Federal officials say they planned to sell microprocessors to a Chinese startup.


    Chinese citizen Shan Yan Ming, who works for a division of PetroChina, was indicted in October after allegedly copying proprietary software at 3DGeo Development Inc., which makes software to help identify oil reserves.

        End US immigration. Immigrants bring their third-world mentality to the US. Look at New Jersey, Michigan, Florida, etc.

          The guy convicted is a Chinese citizen doing business in the US, what does that have to do with immigration? You want to take a guess on which country has the most businessmen in other countries? and espionage is thrid-world mentality? Your existence is really an insult to human intelligence.
