The Chinese foreign ministry said that Beijing was “willing to maintain dialogue and cooperation in area of immigration enforcement with the U.S.” and would begin to accept deported Chinese nationals. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas further confirmed that cooperation between the U.S. and China will be reestablish, stating that he had “an engagement” with his Chinese counterpart.
