The Subcommittee on National Security, the Border, and Foreign Affairs Chairman Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.) announced a closed-door classified hearing on Friday that will take place this coming Thursday on Chinese efforts to infiltrate U.S. military bases.

The hearing, titled, “Intruder Alert: Assessing the CCP’s Ongoing Infiltration of U.S. Military Installations," is going to "explore the Biden Administration’s policy failures that have enabled the CCP and other malicious actors to infiltrate U.S. military installations."

The subcommittee said in a news release that the hearing will be held "inside the Secure Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) within the U.S. Capitol" at 9am.
 
“There has been a multitude of concerning media reports on Chinese spies and other hostile foreign actors accessing and infiltrating U.S. military installations. The Biden Administration’s lax immigration policies have facilitated the entry of individuals engaged in espionage activities and it is unacceptable and endangers American citizens," said Grothman in a statement. 

"I look forward to gaining critical answers to how the Department of Defense and the U.S. Intelligence community are responding to these threats and what strategies have been instituted to ensure incursions of U.S. military bases are prevented moving forward,” he added.

The witnesses include John Dixson, director for defense intelligence at the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security in the U.S. Department of Defense and Jill Murphy, deputy assistant director of the China Branch in the Counterintelligence Division at the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
