CHAPTER III RESIDENCE
[Article 13] Foreigners residing in China must hold an identity card or residence permit issued by the competent authorities of the Chinese Government.
The period of validity of the identity card or residence permit shall be fixed according to the particulars of entry.
Foreigners residing in China shall, within the prescribed time, submit the documents to the local public security authorities for examination.
So, you don't just NEED papers you "MUST HOLD", but you have to carefully "SUBMIT THE DOCUMENTS" to the local commissar.
[Article 16] Foreigners who fail to observe the laws of China may have their period of residence shortened or their resident status revoked by the competent authorities of the Chinese Government.
[Article 17] Foreigners lodging temporarily in China shall go through the formalities of registering their temporary lodging in accordance with the regulations.
[Article 18] Foreigners holding residents' permits who change their place of residence in China shall register their move in accordance with the regulations.
[Article 19] Foreigners without residence permits and those studying in China may not be employed in China without the permission of the competent authorities of the Chinese Government.
CHAPTER IV TRAVEL
[Article 20] Foreigners with valid visas or residence permits may travel to those areas stipulated by the Chinese Government as being open to foreigners.
[Article 21] Foreigners who wish to travel to areas that are not open to foreigners are required to apply to the local public security authorities for travel permits.
Question: who do you think the average illegal alien would RATHER face, an Arizona peace officer, or a Red Chinese security agent? Who would you rather face?
Hence, we have an anti-American puke apologizing for our law to people who are ORDERS of magnitude more draconian...and more serious...with respect to who they let in their country, the documentation they have to carry AND provide without even being asked, where they can live, and where they can travel. I feel safer every passing day.
