It is hard to supervise the chaotic situation

In recent years, China has become the destination of "gold washing" for more and more foreigners.

According to statistics of the Bureau of Exit and Entry Administration of the Ministry of Public of Security, the number of exit and entry foreigners has reached over 54 million in 2011, an increase of nearly 4 percent from the 52 million in 2010.

Located in the embassy district, Sanlitun is a famous living area of foreigners and has luxuriant shopping malls and bars. A security guard said conflicts involving foreigners frequently occurred here.

According to the security guard, black people often gathered in the famous Sanlitun bar street at night, shouting. But he did not know what they are shouting so he cannot prevent bad things from happening in time. "Someone who knows their language told me that they are cursing," the security guard said.

Zhang, who works at a milk tea shop nearby, said that he saw some foreigners engage in such illegal activities as drug trafficking and break the peace at night.

"Sometimes, drunken foreigners fought in the street and ran away before the police came. We just stay in the store and dare not go out to see," Wang, a young man who works at a video store, said, shaking his head.

The residents and storekeepers nearby Sanlitun think it necessary to check these illegal foreigners. With the apparent increase in recent patrols of police, conflicts involving foreigners have comparatively reduced. However, Zhang thinks that the strength of police force is still not enough because some foreigners still disturb the peace and even do illegal activities as usual.
