House Republicans warned top Biden Cabinet secretaries about the 'alarming' effort by a Chinese government -linked company to buy a large plot of land miles from a crucial military drone base in North Dakota. Fufeng Group, a huge agricultural company with significant links to China's government, purchased 370 acres as a location for its new wet corn mill in the agribusiness park just a short distance from Grand Forks Air Force Base. Republicans have slammed the land grab as an "alarming development" for national security.
