Most Chinese students are flocking learning institutions in the United State and this has raised fears that Americans may soon be overpowered by these immigrants. Therefore, there are measures aimed at controlling the number of Chinese seeking education in American learning institutions (Li 7). This essay explores the issues regarding the regulation of the number of Chinese students wishing to pursue education in the United State.
America is experiencing sleepless nights due to the impacts of the Chinese invasion in various international activities like trade, sports, military interventions, and scientific discoveries. This is influenced by the fact that America became the world superpower after the First and Second World wars that destroyed the economies of world giants like Russia, Japan and France (Nedilsky 12). China is using various approaches to ensure it ascends into power through either diplomatic or technical means that involve forming healthy relations with third world nations and ensuring its citizens are trained to manage technical and social issues.
Significance of Chinese International Students in the United State
The most important advantage associated with the increase in the number of Chinese students in the United State is that this will increase the number of learning institutions. It is important to understand that the United States has established several learning institutions and expanded the existing ones to accommodate students from various countries (Cohen 43). It is evident that most immigrants in the United State are from China especially youths who are seeking a better education. Therefore, this nation should not limit the number of Chinese students seeking education in its learning institutions.
Secondly, when a country expands its learning institutions it goes without asking that there will be job opportunities. This means that United State should not limit the number of Chinese students wishing to pursue education from its learning institutions. This will create job opportunities for teachers, lecturers, subordinate staff, and other academic-related employment (Allison 78). In addition, there will be job opportunities for people who offer accommodation and hotel services. Therefore, this reduces the problem of unemployment that has plagued Americans for decades.
Foreign exchange is an important economic activity that determines international relations between nations. In addition, it allows nations to get funds for development and other activities that require a lot of money to finance them. It is important to explain that a country that does have foreign income hardly develops due to the challenges facing local trade (Li 11). Therefore, America should encourage Chinese students to seek further education in learning institutions in America to earn more foreign income. In addition, this will also help it to solve its balances of trade and payment and this will become a significant step towards developing its economy.
Lastly, cultural exchange is an important aspect of ensuring that nations develop cordial relationships among themselves. This means that even though people come from different cultures it is important to ensure that they have good relationships (Dolin 39). Therefore, America should encourage Chinese students to interact with their students to ensure they learn different cultural aspects from one another.
On the other hand, it is important to stress that there must be limits to the number of Chinese students invading America in search of education. Even though, people have the freedom to move from one country to another provided they respect their territorial regulations this behavior must be regulated for various reasons.
First, all developed and developing nations are facing serious unemployment challenges and even if they develop strategies to manage this issue this has not offered lasting solutions (Bader 67). In addition, the human population is increasing very fast and this means that nations will continue to experience unemployment challenges. Therefore, America must ensure that the number of Chinese students pursuing education in its learning institutions is regulated to ensure the problem of unemployment is managed.
In addition, the high population increase caused by an influx of Chinese students in America will exploit the available social amenities. This means that the local authorities will not offer social services to the population as required because of unpredictable population sizes (Cohen 53). There will be increased traffic jams as water and sewerage services become inefficient due to the impacts of high population on the limited housing facilities. Pollution will also be inevitable due to an increase in vehicles and the need to supply food to the huge population.
Cultural dilution is also an inevitable problem that America will face. Even though, nations advocate for interactions among people from different cultures it is important to ensure that they protect and preserve their cultures (Allison 211). Therefore, America should ensure that the number of Chinese students pursuing education in its institutions should not exceed the maximum required to maintain a balance between the American and Chinese cultures.
Lastly, China has put America on its toes regarding the supremacy battle to control the world. It is using all means to ensure that it controls most of the international trading blocks and business activities. Therefore, it is obvious that China may be investing in its students to plan to control America in the future and deprive it of its world leader title (Nedilsky 34). This may be a tactic to study the culture and practices of America to develop strategies of overpowering it when the right time comes.
There is the need for nations to develop healthy relationships by promoting political, economic, and social exchange among them. However, this should not be used as an excuse to advance other interests. Therefore, America must ensure it regulates the number of Chinese immigrants to safeguard its economic, social, and political positions.
