a terrific etha we thought we could go back when things are better, but it's only gotten worse. many of our friends were arrested, some went missing, is clear. we must stay here. or taiwan likes asylum laws and a couple do not have residency status. they now working in taipei on the special permit. but even if they remain here for years, they will never guess citizenship. so they will be in trouble when their passports run out. my passport expires in 2027 and i can't go back to renew it all. i'm slowly losing my status as a hong kong and i could become stateless. that stressful. obtaining time when he citizenship would give me a sense of security and belonging. i want these politicians have repeatedly expressed support for hong kong as since the pro democracy movement began. but unlike in many western countries, that sympathy did not turn into policy taiwan set up a special office 2 years ago to provide humanitarian aid to hong kong. it's out,
6:37 pm
it's on a case by case basis. it's also say over a 100 cases, scott, how in various ways. but none of them were granted asylum poll show that taiwanese i embezzle, and when it comes to sharing resources with hong kong exhaust, these sentiments are mounting and met increasing threats from china. taiwan reason to a suspended, a permanent residency plan for hong kong professionals after backlash from legislators. many side has national security concerns from gotoassist tribune. the 2 major can use hong kong to infiltrate taiwan. i believe they're already chinese spies in taiwan now. and if we open up further, we would only make it easy for them to come and get citizenship to garcia. this is an authoritarian regime that threatens to invite us, perhaps from as a change of leadership in china. we could consider relaxing the rules. but for now, tar one must be cautious when chelsea from hong kong excels have given up in frustration and left tie, one for the west. that was on mock and kelly's minds too. but they say taiwan is their new home. so it's eating,
6:38 pm
i'd feel very hot if we had to go that worked so hard to get new life and blended them all. then after 23 years, you're told you constant i anymore. sophomore. why can't that be more understanding that we felt love from the community? since became wealthy everyone so nice and they make us feel at home, or i hope the show of kindness continues. india, i do mock and kelly still hope for change in asylum policy. but that seems unlikely . and one step hospice expire, they will have no choice but to leave. or i'd left it more on this from lawmaker lot returned from the ruling democratic people's party. he drunk me from taipei, he's also head of the dps international affairs department. mr. little welcome is taiwan. really bodied people fleeing hong kong could be chinese spies. but it is only one of the concerns we may have. but tell you that over the past
6:39 pm
years, we have received in mo, mo, on congress coming to taiwan. about 5 years ago, every year we made about $4000.00. i'm congress to acquire my residency. now, last year we have received $11000.00 on commerce. so i think in general, we are having a more open up policy to hong kong residence to acquire a residency in taiwan. but recently, the gum is talking about and discussing some ways to use the rules of setting i'm con residence. so there are some consisting telling society about the possibility of somebody has to be used by beijing as a way to influence the domestic politics and societies in taiwan. but how widespread concern is it, and is it ground enough to try and curtail the rules that allow permanent residency for these hong kong as well? unfortunately,
6:40 pm
how can we see right now is quite different from hong kong. we knew in the past, as you can see that the b as b in for training in different sectors of society. so i think they said legitimate concern. and so i want about the possibility of a baking using hong kong as a way to place or the domestic and the security of taiwan. but, but this, but these concerns aren't new for taiwan. all this because it's been well acknowledge that beijing has been spying on taiwan for decades. in fact, a report in 2017. well before the hong kong pro democracy protests suggested that there was some 5000 chinese spies in taiwan at that time. i guess what i'm trying to say is if pages wants to spy on taiwan, it doesn't need to wait for hong kong as to stream into taiwan. does it well yet away?
6:41 pm
yes. but i've to say that the government has decided to try to easter was too low and congress to taiwan. but some people is the saudi does. are concerned about that. so we will try our best to convince the people that we will take care of that because says that people have especially validation screwed up. so i want but the governor's pot is the general case lady who has opened our policy to hong thomas. you keep talking about trying to ease the rules for hong kong, didn't seem taiwan. why in the past, you have to work. so i use, i am day acquired some other residencies, temper residencies, and the government, which side to approve in a way that you don't have missions, security concerns. but now we try to use the rules by allowing them to acquire the residency in a much easier way. so, and also in the past, if you are study here in taiwan, it's brady, the for you to acquire
6:42 pm
a temporary residency. and then after 5 years, you can easily acquire the residency. but you have to study here in time. and now you don't have to study here in time one and before you acquire and apply for the premier risk of the majority of hong kong. those who have been given any residency in taiwan are on temporary residents permit, and they are on the verge of their passports running out. i mean, the government will have to act fast. doesn't that unless the government expects these? hong kong is to go back to hong kong to renew their passports. can you give us a timeline? i would you would actually ease rules? well, actually the government has from the get the new rules. and if there's no objection, i think the government can implemented policy. i think the oldest right away, but you would take some time and i think would be a matter of that. yes. right. well, hopefully this is something that hong kong,
