“It is difficult to regulate overseas organizations with Taiwanese laws and what we could do is to alert the public to these organizations’ hidden agenda,” Hsu said.

However, laws can be amended to deal with domestic organizations allegedly networking for Beijing, such as the China Unification Promotion Party, Hsu said.

While Taiwan is a democracy where people are free to express their political beliefs, measures have to be taken against Beijing seeking to influence the nation’s democracy, Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Huang Wei-cher (黃偉哲) said.

National security could be compromised if Beijing is actively approaching and inciting Taiwanese, Huang said.

Chinese councilors should be banned from entering Taiwan if the purpose of their visit is different from what is stated on their visa application, the lawmaker said.

The National Immigration Agency should reject their entry and deport them if necessary, he added.
