Efrem Efrem: THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

BELGIAN POLICE CONTINUE

THEIR EFFORTS TO FIND

ACCOMPLICES IN THE MARCH

22nd ATTACKS.

BUT MANY BELIEVE THE ROOTS

OF THE DANGER BEGAN LONG

AGO.

Reporter: WHEN

ISLAMIC TERRORISTS STRUCK

THE HEART OF BRUSSELS, THE

TIMING FOOLED AUTHORITIES,

BUT FOR OTHERS IT WASN'T A

TOTAL SURPRISE.

EVERYBODY KNEW THAT THE

NEXT ATTACK WAS ONLY A

QUESTION OF WHEN, NOT IF.

Reporter: DANIEL SAYS

THE ROOTS OF BELGIUM'S

PROBLEM GO FAR BEYOND

MARCH 22nd.

THE ROOTS ARE REALLY A

VIOLENT IDEOLOGY THAT IS

SPREADING AMONG MUSLIM

COMMUNITIES.

WHAT WE SEE HERE IS THAT A

NEXUS EXISTS BETWEEN THE

IDEOLOGY FUNDED AND

SPONSORED, AND IT GOES

BACK TO THE 1960s

ALREADY BY SAUDI ARABIA

AND OTHER GULF COUNTRIES.

Reporter: THIS MOSQUE

IN THE HEART OF BRUSSELS

IS ONE EXAMPLE OF HOW

MONEY FROM SAUDI ARABIA

AND OTHER GULF COUNTRIES

ARE BEING USED TO SPREAD

MUHAMMADISM, A BRAND OF

ISLAM.

THIS WAY OF SPREADING THE

MUSLIM FAITH IS EVEN MORE

DANGEROUS THAN THE ISLAMIC

STATE.

THEY HAVE REALLY TURNED

AROUND A MODERATE MUSLIM

COMMUNITY INTO WHAT WE

HAVE NOW AS A HOTBED FOR

RADICAL IT LAM.

THE ORIGINAL OF ISLAM,

WHICH IS DIFFERENT FROM

CHRISTIANITY OR JUDAISM,

WE KIND OF EMBRACED IT.

Reporter: THIS

CONSERVATIVE SAYS WHEN

BELGIUM AND THE REST OF

EUROPE ENACTED ITS "OPEN

DOOR" POLICY DECADES AGO,

IT DIDN'T

REALIZE THE

CONSEQUENCES.

YOU CAN BUILD YOUR

MOSQUES AND HAVE YOUR

QURAN AND WORSHIP YOUR GOD

HERE AND DO EVERYTHING.

AND, OF COURSE, THAT WAS A

MAJOR MISTAKE BECAUSE IF

YOU START DOING THAT,

SHAR'IA LAW WILL FOLLOW

SOONER OR LATER.

Reporter: HE WARNS

THE PROBLEM RUNS WR DEEP.

VERY

DEEP.

IT RUNS VERY DEEP.

WITH HAVE CITIES IN

BELGIUM AND THE REST OF

EUROPE WHERE MUSLIMS ARE

THE MAJORITY.

AND THE CITIES ARE

ISLAMIZED.

IF YOU WALK THERE AS A

WOMAN NOT DRESSED IN A

MUSLIM WAY, THE CHANCE IS

VERY BIG YOU WILL GET

HARASSED OR ATTACKED OR

WHATEVER.

OR IF YOU'RE A JEW WALKING

THERE, THEN THE CHANCE IS

VERY BIG YOU WILL GET

ATTACKED.

SO THAT IS ISLAMIZATION.

Reporter: THE USE OF JEWS OF

BELGIUM ARE PARTICULARLY

CONCERNED.

YOU DON'T HAVE AN

EVENING WITH FRIENDS

WITHOUT SOMETHING RAISING

THE ISSUE, SHOULD WE STAY?

CAN WE STAY?

CAN WE STAY AND DON'T WE

HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY

TOWARDS OUR CHILDREN?

IS THERE A FUTURE FOR THEM

IN THIS COUNTRY WHERE OUR

PARENTS PUT DOWN THEIR

LEGGAGE.

WE HAVE BEEN FACING THE

ATTACKS, BUT JEWS ARE

USUALLY THE FIRST TARGETS,

BUT NEVER THE ONLY TARGET.

Reporter: HE SAYS THE

RESULT IS GLOBAL ISLAM.

IT IS TO CREATE A

CALIPHATE.

IN THEIR MIND, CLEARLY,

THERE NEEDS TO BE AN

ISLAMIST RULE CERTAINLY IN

WHAT IS NOW THE MUSLIM

WORLD AND EVEN BEYOND.

AT THE END OF THE DAY,

THEY BELIEVE THAT BELGIUM

AND BRITAIN

AND THE UNITED

STATES HAVE TO BE

PART OF

IT.

THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUTH IN

THEIR MIND.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM.

Efrem: AN EGYPTIAN

MAN HIJACKED A MAN FROM

BELGIUM TO CAIRO.

HE RELEASED MOST OF THE 55

PASSENGERS, BUT KEPT THE

CREW AND FOUR OTHERS.

THE PRESIDENT OF BELGIUM

SAYS THE HIJACKING IS NOT

A TERRORIST ATTACK.

MEANWHILE, AN ISLAMIC

TERRORIST GROUP IN THE

PHILIPPINES REPORTEDLY

HIJACKED TWO INDONESIAN

SHIPS.

THE OWNERS OF A TUGBOAT

AND A COAL BAR SAY THEY

RECEIVED RANSOM DEMANDS

FROM ABU SHAIF.

AND THE GROUP IS SAID TO

BE HOLDING 10 INDONESIAN

NATIONALS HOSTAGE.

LGBT ACTIVISTS AND A

COALITION HAV ARE BATTLING.

IN NORTH CAROLINA, THE

GOVERNOR CALLED A SPECIAL

SESSION TO STAT SET UP A

STATE-WIDE STANDARD FOR

WHO BELONGS IN WHICH

BATHROOM.

GIRLS LIKE ME SHOULD

NEVER BE FORCED TO UNDRESS

OR SHOWER IN THE PRESENCE

OF BOYS.

Efrem: THE LAW

MANDATES GOVERNMENT

BATHROOMS BE SEPARATED

PRIMARILY BY BIOLOGICAL

SEX.

IT DOES NOT SET STANDARDS

FOR BATHROOMS IN PRIVATE

BUSINESSES.

THE ACLU FILED A FEDERAL

LAWSUIT MONDAY AGAINST THE

STATE.

THE MAYORS OF SEATTLE, SAN

FRANCISCO, AND THE

GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK HAVE

BANNED NON-ESSENTIAL

PUBLICLY-FUNDED TRAVEL TO

NORTH CAROLINA.

AND THE NBA THREATENING TO

MOVE ITS 2017 ALL-STAR

GAME OUT OF CHARLOTTE.

IN GEORGIA THIS WEEK, THAT

KIND OF CORPORATE PRESSURE

LED THE GOVERNMENT TO VETO

A SEVERELY WATERED DOWN

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY BILL.

THE BILL PROVIDED

PROTECTION FOR PASTORS WHO

DO NOT WANT TO PERFORM

SAME-SEX WEDDINGS.

STILL, HIGH-POWERED

CORPORATIONS FROM NETFLIX,

TIME WARNER, AND DISNEY

THREATENED TO LEAVE THE

STATE IF THE GOVERNOR

SIGNED THE BILL.

I DO NOT THINK WE HAVE

TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST

ANYONE TO PROTECT THE

FAITH-BASED COMMUNITY IN

GEORGIA.

EVERYONE I SPOKE TO IS

OUTRAGED.

WE ARE SURPRISED TO

GOVERNOR DEAL WOULD BOW

DOWN TO HOLLYWOOD AND THE

NFL.

Reporter: THIS PASTOR

SAYS BELIEVERS IN GEORGIA

ARE RALLYING TO REVERSE

WHAT THE GOVERNOR HAS

DONE.

IN NORTH CAROLINA, THEY'RE

HOPING THAT THE GOVERNMENT

WILL NOT GIVE IN, DESPITE

ENORMOUS PRESSURE TO

REVERSE THE NEW LAW.

> THE F.B.I. HAS

SUCCESSFULLY HACKED

THE iPHONE OF ONE OF THE

SAN BERNARDINO TERRORISTS.

THE F.B.I. WILL NOW DROP

THE LAWSUIT IT FILED TO

FORCE APPLE TO HELP.

THE ANALYSTS ARE NOW

LOOKING AT THE INFORMATION

IN HOPES OF UNCOVERING

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE

ATTACKS.

> INVESTIGATORS ARE

INVESTIGATING WHY TWO MEN

SHOWED UP AN A CHURCH ON

SUNDAY WITH GUNS.

CBN NEWS VISITED THE

CHURCH IN 2014 TO SEE ITS

STATE-OF-THE-ART SECURITY

SYSTEM.

CHARLENE AARON HAS MORE.

Reporter: MEMBERS OF

BELLEVUE BAPTIST CHURCH

ARE COUNTING THEIR

BLESTLEBLESSINGS AFTER AN ARMED

MAN ENTERED THEIR

SANCTUARY.

31-YEAR-OLD MARCUS DONALD

ARRIVED DURING THE

SERVICE.

A CHURCH USHER NOTICE THE

PISTOL STICKING OUT OF HIS

POCKET, AND THEY CALLED

SECURITY.

BELLEVUE BAPTIST, WITH

MORE THAN 30,000 MEMBERS,

HAS LONG BEEN READY FOR

SUCH AN EVENT.

IN 2013, CBN NEWS

HIGHLIGHTED BELLEVUE IN A

STORY ABOUT CHURCH

SECURITY.

THE CHURCH I WENT TO

HAD ABOUT 200 PEOPLE, AND

WE KNEW EVERYBODY WHO CAME

THROUGH THE DOORS.

BUT WHEN YOU HAVE A CHURCH

THIS LARGE, IT IS LIKE A

CIVIC CENTER.

Reporter: ANDY WILLIS

HEADS UP THE SECURITY

TEAM, WHICH INCLUDES MORE

THAN 100 PAID AND

VOLUNTEER STAFF.

TODAY CHURCHES THAT

SPEAK THE TRUTH, THAT

TEACH

AND PREACH TRUE

BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES, THEY

DRAW A LOT OF ATTENTION

BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT OF

COMPONENTS OF SOCIETY THAT

DON'T WANT TO HEAR THAT,

THAT ARE ABSOLUTELY

AGAINST THAT.

AS A CHURCH SECURITY TEAM,

WE HAVE TO BE PREPARED FOR

THOSE KINDS OF SITUATIONS,

TO INTERVENE AND TO

PROTECT THE FLOCK.

Reporter: WILLIS SAYS

THE CHURCH ALSO RELIES ON

STATE OSTATE-OF-THE-ART CAMERAS.

A CAMERA SYSTEM THAT

CONSTANTLY MONITORS AND

RECORDS ACTIVITIES ON

CAMPUS IS EXTREMELY

IMPORTANT.

THEY'RE NOT VERY

EXPENSIVE.

AND THE THING THAT YOU GET

IS THAT YOU GET THE

PROTECTION IN A LIABILITY

SITUATION THAT YOU WON'T

HAVE IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT.

Reporter: POLICE SAID

DONALD TOLD HIM, QUOTE," ,

PEOPLPEOPLE IN SOCIETY ARE A

THREAT TO HIM AND HE MUST

BE VIGILANT."

CLEARLY HAD IS

DISTURBED A LITTLE BIT.

I'M NOT A DOCTOR, SO I

HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE

DIAGNOSIS FOR HIM IS.

BUT HE CERTAINLY HAD THE

POTENTIAL TO DO A LOT OF

REALLY BAD STUFF.

Reporter: MEMBERS ARE

THANKFUL THAT NO ONE WAS

HURT.

EVERYTHING WAS ALL

RIGHT IN THERE.

NOTHING WENT ON INSIDE THE

SANCTUARY.

I HEARD A DISRUPTION IN

THE CHURCH.

I DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING

ABOUT ANYONE BEING ARMED.

AS THE PASTOR SAID, WE

HAD A DISTURBANCE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

DONALD, WHO'S MOTHER

ATTENDED THE CHURCH, WAS

ARRESTED WITHOUT INCIDENT.

AND POLICE ARE CONTINUING

THEIR INVESTIGATION.

ON TWITTER, CHURCH LEADERS

POSTED: "NOBODY WAS

INJURED.

PRAISE THE LORD FOR HIS

PROTECTION."

WILLIS SAYS CHRISTIANS

NEED TO TRUST GOD BUT BE

PREPARED.

THE BIGGEST THING THAT

MAKES ME CRINGE WHEN I

TALKED TO OTHER CHURCHES,

IS WHEN THEY SAY WE DON'T

HAVE SECURITY; WE'RE JUST

PRAYING WE'RE PROTECTED.

> JUST LIKE EVERY

SATURDAY, A VERY LARGE

GROUP OF PEOPLE SHOWED UP

HERE AND PRAYED OVER EVERY

SEAT IN THE SANCTUARY,

PRAYED OVER THE HALLWAYS

AND THE CLASSROOMS.

AND, YOU KNOW, WE PRAYED

FOR SOULS TO BE REACHED.

WE PRAYED FOR THE MESSAGE

OF CHRIST TO GET OUT.

ADDITIONALLY, THESE

INDIVIDUALS, THEY COME

EVERY WEEK, FAITHFULLY,

LED BY OUR PASTOR, STEVE

GAINES.

WE PRAYED FOR SAFETY.

WE PRAYED THAT NO HARM

WOULD COME TO THIS PLACE.

Reporter: PRIOR PRAYERS

THAT WERE HEARD AND

ANSWERED.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: NEXT, THE

COUPLE PARENTING 32

CHILDREN ON A MISSION TO

CREATE A WORLD WITHOUT

ORPHANS.

Efrem: AND ESTIMATED

EIGHT MILLION CHILDREN

LIVE IN ORPHANAGES, AND

SOME CHRISTIANS ARE

SAYING, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

THEY'RE LEADING A MOVEMENT

TO PUT CHILDREN IN STABLE,

WORSHIPPING HOMES.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAGEORGE THOMAS HAS MORE.

George: THIS MAN IS

ON A MISSION.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator:

THE STATISTICS SHOW THAT

AT LEAST ONE OR TWO

CHRISTIAN FAMILIES WILL

TAKE ONE ORPHAN, AND THEN

WE WILL HAVE A WORLD

WITHOUT ORPHANS.

George: BACK IN 1998,

HE SAW FIRSTHAND THE

PLIGHT OF CHILDREN LIVING

ON THE STREETS AND IN

ORPHANAGES IN HIS HOME

TOWN OF MARIO PORT.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator: I

JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW I

COULD HAVE LEFT THEM ON

THE STREETS.

WHEN I SAW THEIR EYES, I

UNS THUNSUNDERSTOOD THE FATHER'S

HEART.

IT WAS A CRAZY IDEA, BUT I

KNEW I HAD TO DO

SOMETHING.

George: WHAT HE AND

HIS WIFE DID WAS

REMARKABLE.

OVER 18 YEARS, THEY HAVE

BECOME PARENTS TO 32

CHILDREN.

THAT'S RIGHT, 32.

MOST ARE ADOPTED.

Through Translator:

MY ADOPTED CHILDREN WERE

LIVING ON THE STREETS.

SOME OF THEM WERE AS YOUNG

AS FOUR AND FIVE.

SOME AS YOUNG AS TWO.

BUT WE KNEW IF WE DIDN'T

TAKE THEM OFF THE STREETS,

MOST OF THEM WOULD BE DEAD

OR IN PRISON.

George: TODAY THE

COUPLE RUN THE LARGEST

REHABILITATION PROGRAM FOR

STREET YOUTH IN UKRAINE.

Through Translator:

NOBODY NEEDS TO ADOPT 32

CHILDREN, LIKE WE DID.

MY FAM I FAMILY IS NOT THE NORM.

BUT I STRONGLY BELIEVE

THERE ARE ENOUGH CHRISTIAN

FAMILIES IN THE WORLD WHO

CAN ADOPT ONE, MAYBE TWO,

AND THEN THERE WILL NOT BE

ANY ORPHANS LEFT IN THIS

WORLD.

George:

HE TOOK THAT

MESSAGE TO THAILAND, WHERE

450 KEY ORPHAN-CARE

LEADERS MET FOR THE FIRST

EVER GLOBAL FORUM FOR A

WORLD WITHOUT ORPHANS.

ROSAN MALUTA HELPED

ORGANIZE THE GATHERING.

OUR PURPOSE IS VERY

SIMPLE: TO ACTIVATE,

CONNECT, AND CREATE THE

BODY OF CHRIST, WITH THIS

VISION OF EVERY CHILD

VISIT A PERMANENT,

NURTURING, AND SAFE

FAMILY.

George: HE BELIEVES

CHURCHES AND CHRISTIAN

ORGANIZATIONS HAVE TO

CHANGE THEIR APPROACH FROM

INVESTING IN ORPHANAGES TO

INVESTING IN FAMILIES.

IT IS NOT EASY.

YOU CANNOT JUST CLOSE AN

ORPHANAGE.

THE MESSAGE IS NOT LET'S

CLOSE ALL INSTITUTIONS.

THAT'S THE WRONG IDEA.

WE NEED TO CHANGE THE WAY

PEOPLE THINK FIRST.

George: CRAIG

GREENFIELD WORKS AMONG

VULNERABLE CHILDREN IN

ASIA AND SAYS THE CHANGE

HAS TO START WITH

FAITH-BASED GROUPS.

IT IS CHRISTIAN

ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE

PERPETUATING THIS MODEL OF

ORPHANAGES.

IN LARGE SECULAR

DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATIONS,

THEY HAVE NOT SUPPORTED OR

DONE ORPHANAGES FOR MANY,

MANY YEARS.

George: THE CHANGE IS

HAPPENING, ALBEIT SLOWLY,

SAYS REBECCA NAPES, WHO

WORKS WITH A NETWORK OF

AUSTRALIAN CHURCHES,

HELPING STRENGTHEN

CHILDREN'S RIGHTS TO A

FAMILY.

THERE IS A GROWING

AWARENESS TAKING PLACE IN

THE CHURCH, AND THAT

THAT'S NOT THE BEST WAY TO

TAKE CARE OF CHILDREN.

AND THAT MANY CHILDREN IN

ORPHANAGES ARE NOT

ACTUALLY ORPHANS, BUT

THERE ARE REASON SUCH AS

POVERTY OR ACCESS TO

EDUCATION.

George: BUT THIS

PARADIGM SHIP IS NOT

WITHOUT ITS CRITICS.

HERE IN THE NORTHERN PART

OF THAILAND, THERE ARE 600

PRIVATE ORPHANAGES, AND

MANY OF THEM, LIKE THIS

ONE, ARE RUN BY

CHRISTIANS.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Through Translator: I

GREW UP IN AN ORPHANAGE AS

WELL.

SO MY DESIRE IS TO TAKE

CARE OF ORPHANED CHILDREN.

George: THIS MAN RUNS

THIS CHILDREN'S HOME.

HIS FAMILY WAS TOO POOR,

SO THEY SENT HIM AWAY.

Through Translator:

THERE WAS NO SCHOOL IN MY

VILLAGE.

MY PARENTS SENT ME TO AN

ORPHANAGE, WHERE I WAS

ABLE TO GET AN EDUCATION.

George: HE ADMITS IT

WAS IDEAL.

NOW HE AND HIS WIFE TRY TO

CREATE A FAMILY-LIKE

ATMOSPHERE FOR THE 30

CHILDREN THEY CARE FOR.

HE SAYS THEY ONLY TAKE

THOSE WHO ARE TRULY

ORPHANED.

THE TRUTH IS CHILDREN

SHOULD LIVE WITH THEIR

FAMILY.

BUT IF THAT CAN'T HAPPEN,

FOR WHATEVER REASON, THERE

HAS TO BE PLACES LIKE THIS

THAT CAN BE ANOTHER CHOICE

FOR THEM.

George: BACK AT THE

FORUM, PARTICIPANT FROM 60

COUNTRIES ATTENDED

WORKSHOPS AND SEMINARS ON

RAISING AWARENESS OF

FAMILIES AND

COMMUNITY-BASED CARE.

SEVERAL SPEAKERS ADDRESSED

THE FORUM, INCLUDING TERRY

MEEUWSEN, A MOTHER OF

SEVEN, FIVE WHO ARE

ADOPTED.

Terry: YOU'RE

WELCOME.

George:

SHE

STARTED

"ORPHANS'

PROMISE" IN

2005.

SHE LEARNED EARLY ON THAT

BUILDING AND FILLING AN

ORPHANAGE WASN'T ONLY THE

BEST THING TO DO.

Terry: PEOPLE STILL

COME TO ME AND SAY, I'D

LIKE TO BUILD AN

ORPHANAGE.

CAN WE DO THAT THROUGH

"ORPHANS' PROMISE"?

AND I SAY, YOU CAN HELP US

BUILD FAMILIES, BUT WE'RE

NOT REALLY BUILDING

ORPHANAGES.

AND THE ORPHANAGES THAT

EXIST, WE HELPING TO

CHANGE HOW THEY THINK AND

FEEL INTO THAT FAMILY

UNIT.

> HOW MANY WAYS CAN WE

PREPARE POTATOES?

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Terry: I TOLD YOU SHE

IS RESOURCEFUL.

George: SHE SAYS

WHILE HIS NEW SHIFT

DOESN'T ALWAYS GUARANTEE

THAT CHILDREN WILL HAVE

HEALTHY FAMILIES TO GO

BACK TO, IT IS IMPORTANT

THAT THE BODY OF CHRIST

STEPS IN TO FILL THE GAPS.

Terry: LET'S STEP UP,

AS THE PEOPLE OF GOD, IN

WHATEVER CULTURE WE'RE IN,

AND LET'S TAKE THOSE

CHILDREN INTO A FAMILY

SETTING.

LET'S HELP THEM FIND

HOMES, SO WE'RE CREATING A

WORLD OF HEALTHY FAMILIES.

* HALLELUJAH

George: MALUTA IS

EXCITED TO SEE MORE AND

MORE PEOPLE EMBRACE THIS

NEW MINDSET OF ORPHAN

CARE.

HERE IS THE GREAT PART:

NOT EVERYONE CAN ADOPT,

NOT EVERYONE CAN FOSTER,

NOT EVERYONE CAN ENGAGE IN

SOME SORT OF PROGRAM, BUT

EVERYONE CAN DO SOMETHING.

EVERYONE CAN BE AN

ADVOCATE, EVERYONE CAN

PRAY, AND EVERYONE CAN BE

A CHAMPION.

IT IS A LONG AND

COMPLICATED PROCESS, BUT

WE HAVE TO START

SOMEWHERE.

George: THE FORUM, HE

SAYS, IS A NEW PHASE OF

THAT LONG AND DIFFICULT

JOURNEY TOWARDS A WORLD

WITHOUT ORPHANS.

George: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS, CHANGMI,

CHINA.

Efrem: NEXT, SEE WHY

MANY CHINESE MILLENNIALS

HEADING TO THE U.S. FOR

EDUCATION FEAR THEY WON'T

BE SAFE.

Efrem: MARCH IS THE

BUSIEST TIME OF YEAR FOR

STUDENTS IN CHINA.

MANY APPLY TO COLLEGES AND

UNIVERSITY IN THE U.S.

HOWEVER, THIS YEAR SOME

ARE CONSIDERING MORE THAN

JUST EDUCATION WHEN

CHOOSING A SCHOOL.

WE HAVE THE STORY.

Reporter: CHINESE

MILLENNIALS ARE HEADING

TOWARDS THE UNITED STATES.

TODAY, CHINESE PARENTS ARE

EAGER TO SEND THEIR

PARENTS OVERSEAS, AND THE

STUDENTS COMING ARE

YOUNGER THAN EVER.

IN 2014, APPROXIMATELY

460,000 CHINESE LEFT CHINA

FOR VARIOUS REASONS.

MORE THAN HALF OF THEM

CAME TO THE U.S. FOR

HIGHER EDUCATION.

BUT SOME CHINESE PARENTS

WORRY ABOUT THEIR CHILD'S

SAFETY WHILE STUDYING

ABROAD.

WHILE NO CHINESE

STUDENTS WERE KILLED IN

THE MASS SHOOTING AT THE

VIRGINIA TECH UNIVERSITY,

THE 2007 INCIDENT RAISED A

SECURITY CONCERN ABOUT

CHINESE STUDENTS.

BEFORE APPLYING FOR

SCHOOLS IN AMERICA, I WAS

A LITTLE SCARED.

I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN

TRUST THE SCHOOL I CHOOSE.

AND CHINESE STUDENTS

HAVE BEEN VICTIMS IN OTHER

SHOOTINGS.

ON JANUARY 16th OF THIS

YEAR, A CHINESE STUDENT

WAS SHOT TO DEATH ON AN

ARIZONA STATE CAMPUS.

AND ANOTHER CHINESE

NATIONAL WAS FOUND DEAD

OUTSIDE HIS DORM AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN

CALIFORNIA.

IN APRIL OF 2012, TWO

CHINESE STUDENTS WERE SHOT

TO DEATH IN THEIR CAR, ONE

MILE FROM THE SCHOOL IN

LOS ANGELES.

> MANY CHINESE STUDENTS

AND THEIR PARENTS ARE

WORRYING IF STUDYING

ABROAD IS STILL AN OPTION.

SOME MAY BE PAYING MORE

ATTENTION TO THE CAMPUS

SAFETY THAN THE

CURRICULUM.

CHINESE STUDENTS SHOULD

KNOW HOW TO PROTECT

THEMSELVES IN AMERICA.

THEY SHOULD NO WHAT TO DO

IF AN EMERGENCY COMES.

Through Translator:

WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE

STUDENTS TO ACTIVELY

PARTICIPATE IN MANY

ACTIVITIES.

COMMUNICATION AND

PARTICIPATION ARE THE TWO

MAIN GOALS WE SET FOR OUR

STUDENTS.

COMMUNICATION CAN SAVE

LIVES, SOMETIMES.

Reporter: DESPITE

SECURITY CONCERNS, U.S.

COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES

CONTINUE TO RECEIVE A

RECORD NUMBER OF

APPLICATION TO CHINESE

STUDENTS EACH YEAR.

WILL THE SAFETY CONCERNS

KEEP CHINESE STUDENTS FROM

MOVING ABROAD?

MILLENNIALS WE TALKED TO

IN BEIJING SAY WHILE

SAFETY IS A CONCERN, IT

WON'T PREVENT THEM FROM

SEEKING HIGHER EDUCATION

IN THE UNITED STATES.

Through Translator: I

DON'T THINK THIS WILL STOP

ME FROM GOING ABROAD.

IN MY VIEW, I BELIEVE MOST

OF THE CAMPUSES ARE SAFE.

I KNOW THE SCHOOLS IN THE

U.S. WILL DO THE BEST THEY

CAN TO PROTECT THE

STUDENTS.

PARENTS AND STUDENTS,

EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT.

CHINESE STUDENTS ARE

LOOKING FORWARD TO

OBTAINING HIGHER EDUCATION

IN THE U.S., AS WELL AS

BUILDING A NEW LIFE HERE

IN THE LONG RUN.
