Last week, U.S. President trump issued an executive order to prohibit us companies and individuals from engaging in any wechat related transactions after 45 days on the grounds that wechat collects information about US users and threatens US national security. However, the executive order does not specify the definition of “wechat related transactions”, and the specific details of the ban will be formulated by the U.S. Department of Commerce. < / P > < p > although the administrative order does not directly say that wechat should be banned, theoretically, “installation and use” also belongs to the broad Trading category. The White House can ask apple and Google stores in the United States to remove wechat apps, or stop providing updates. Even if the white house simply banned “financial related transactions” in a narrow sense, it would completely end all business services of wechat in the United States. < p > < p > less than 2% of Tencent’s huge revenue comes from the US market. This means that abandoning the U.S. market is not a big loss for Tencent. Before that, Tencent stopped wechat support for Indian mobile phone numbers in the Indian market, and most American Chinese registered wechat with American mobile phone numbers. If Tencent continues to operate in the Indian market, Chinese Americans may not be able to use wechat in the future. In view of the fact that the president of Apple will block the sales of Apple’s iPhone on wechat yesterday, he asked whether the news of trump in China would affect its sales. Trump said, “so what?” (whatever). He stressed that he did not care about this, and his primary purpose was to ensure the national security of the United States. < / P > < p > if wechat is completely banned in the United States, the biggest impact will be on millions of Chinese Americans. Their social interaction with domestic relatives and friends will be interrupted. Because the social applications commonly used in foreign countries cannot be used in China, the vast majority of domestic relatives and friends are on wechat platform. Without wechat, Chinese Americans will not only lose all their wechat groups, but will no longer see the dynamics of the circle of friends and relatives in China. They can only make one-on-one contact with relatives and friends in China through SMS, phone calls and email. In addition, many first generation Chinese immigrants get news information through the official account of WeChat. In addition, half of the more than 5 million Chinese in the United States are concentrated in New York, the San Francisco Bay area and Los Angeles. Chinese life services in these areas are also carried out through wechat. Chinese supermarkets and restaurants can accept wechat payment, Chinese e-commerce and fresh food can place orders through wechat, and Chinese information platform reaches users through wechat. It can be said that the life of many Chinese Americans and the operation of Chinese enterprises are inseparable from wechat. < / P > < p > although Tencent has not publicly announced its countermeasures, Chinese Americans have decided to take legal action to sue the federal government of the United States to protect their right to use wechat in the United States. This week, several Chinese American lawyers set up a non-profit organization, the American wechat Users Association (wechat), headquartered in New Jersey. They have nothing to do with Tencent. They are just ordinary users of wechat in the United States, and they do not represent the partisan debate in the United States. < p > < p > the US wechat Association said in its founding statement, “what we represent is the most common wechat users in the United States who like to brush the circle of friends endlessly, wait for the red envelope and fight the emoticon pack with enthusiasm. Wechat is not a perfect app, just as many Americans complain about Facebook. But some of us like to use it. Mr. President, he has no right to deprive us of our choice with a vague and illegitimate decree. ” The lawyers said that the White House’s executive order to ban wechat transactions violated the US Constitution and administrative procedure law, and they planned to sue the federal government in federal courts, asking federal judges to issue a preliminary injunction to prevent the US government from blocking wechat transactions. In addition to several current lawyers, wechat also plans to hire better lawyers to join the team. They paid part of the expenses themselves, and offered donation options on the official website, appealing for the participation of Chinese Americans. < p > < p > the US micro Federation announced yesterday that they had hired Michael bien, the named partner of Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld LLP, a famous San Francisco law firm. This lawyer has more than 40 years of litigation experience in the United States, and has rich litigation experience in California and the Ninth Circuit Court of appeal. He has been rated as the best lawyer by American lawyer professional journals. In the United States, it is very common for civil rights organizations and non-profit organizations to sue the federal government for specific policies, and there are many precedents. Almost every immigration policy of the trump administration has been sued by civil rights agencies, and federal district judges have issued preliminary injunctions to veto the president’s executive orders. Take the travel ban against several Muslim countries in 2017 as an example. Human rights agencies have won lawsuits in the Federal District Court and the circuit court of appeal, temporarily freezing the president’s travel ban. It was only at the end of the day that the Supreme Court of the United States decided to support the president’s executive power by a 5:4 vote.
