Dear Congressman Rohrabacher,
As you may know, some 228 persons (in remembrance of the 228 Taiwan Massacre in 1947) took their applications for US national non-citizen passports to the American Institute in Taiwan, Taipei Office, on March 29, 2006. We understand that 35 pages of supporting legal rationale were presented to AIT on Feb. 22, 2006 for study and examination by the Dept. of State.
It is the iron fact that the government of the Republic of China is actually a government-in-exile and it has never been awarded the sovereignty of Taiwan in the post WWII era. This is quite evident from an examination of the San Francisco Peace Treaty (SFPT) that became effective on April 28, 1952. Nevertheless, over the past few decades, the government representatives of the ROC have been able to convince members of the US Congress that they are the unfortunate victims in the ebb and flow of world politics, whereas in fact they are the aggressors, and have committed numerous crimes against the Taiwanese people.
A description of the SFPT's handling of Taiwan would be to say that it is a "limbo cession." From late 1952 to the present, Taiwan has remained under the administrative authority of the principal occupying power of the SFPT, which is the United States of America. In other words, Taiwan is an area under the jurisdiction of the USA.
At the present time, the people of Taiwan are Anti-China and the very good friends of the USA. However, if the PRC takes over Taiwan by military means, Taiwan could quickly become the base of Anti-Americanism in Asia.
Your assistance in pressing the Dept. of State to review the 35 page legal rationale regarding the eligibility of native Taiwanese persons to apply for US national passports will be very highly appreciated. Additionally, it would be desirable for your staff members to do a full investigation of this issue.
