A federal judge in Sacramento, California, rejected a request for bail from Juan Tang, whose prosecution for visa fraud has helped fuel tension between China and the U.S. Tang stayed at the Chinese consulate in San Francisco for about a month after federal agents confronted her at her apartment in Davis. Barnes said she found the facts surrounding Tang’s lengthy stay at the consulate “somewhat unusual.” Consulate officials must’ve had a good idea of Tang’s background to let her stay there, she said. Tang has every incentive to stay in the United states and fight this case,” Negin told the judge. The case is U.S. v. Tang, 20-mj-96, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California (Sacramento).
