In a letter Monday, Emmer and Rep. Dan Newhouse of Washington called on U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to “provide Americans with the fullest possible picture of all foreign purchases of United States land.”

Citing a recent U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) report, the congressmen 
noted that Chinese businesses have significantly increased their ownership of 
U.S. farmland from 13,720 acres to 352,140 acres in just one decade, 2010 to 2020.

Of course, the congressmen added, this is particularly troubling because “no 
major economic activity originating from [China] is transacted without the 
direct or indirect participation of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).”

“During this time of high inflation and supply chain challenges, food-producing 
land is more important than ever, and our constituents deserve to know as much 
as possible about foreign acquisition of domestic farmland …” the letter concluded.

In a tweet sharing a copy of the full letter, Emmer commented that “a country that cannot feed itself cannot survive.”
