FACT SHEET: Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Ownership of Agricultural Land is a Threat to South Carolina
The CCP DOES NOT have a right to own U.S. agricultural land, but it is taking advantage of our Nation’s vulnerabilities.
South Carolina Farmland is NOT PROTECTED.
4.8 Million Acres in South Carolina Open to CCP Control.
According to USDA reports, CCP holdings of U.S. agricultural land surged by more than 5,300% from 2010 to 2020.
The CCP now owns 352,140 acres of U.S. land valued at $1.9 billion.
- The 352,140 acres now controlled by the CCP could instead potentially be farmed by 800 American families.
- 11 states (AZ, KY, MD, MN, MO, NE, ND, OK, PA, SC, and WI) have passed laws effectively restricting the CCP from owning agricultural land, and another 3 have introduced legislation.
- U.S. citizens and companies may NOT own agricultural land in China.
