WASHINGTON, D.C. -U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is calling on the Trump Administration to block the Chinese's government's appointment Andy Tsang-Wai-hung, a former head of police in Hong Kong, to lead a post that would oversee transnational organized crime, trafficking, terrorism, and corruption for the United Nations.

As Fox News reported:

"Texas Republican Sen. Cruz -- who has sponsored legislation to halt Chinese infiltration on U.S. campuses and research institutions -- told Fox News in a statement that such Chinese efforts need to be stymied.

"‘The Chinese Communist Party has systematically pursued a policy of joining and exploiting international organizations to advance their agenda. The pattern is the same across issues as varied as the WTO, Internet governance, Interpol, and human rights bodies,' he said.

The Texas senator who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee called on the administration to make sure Beijing is halted in its ambitions.

"‘The UN has no business putting yet another Communist Party cutout in a leadership position, especially one with a direct history of advancing China's abuses in Hong Kong. The Trump administration should use its voice and vote to block this appointment.'

"As Hong Kong police chief in 2014, Tsang was responsible for putting down pro-democracy protesters who demanded democratic elections for chief executive. More recently he served as China's deputy director for its narcotics control commission."
