萧雨, 中国官派学者在美国建党支部 两周后解散. VOA Chinese, Nov 20, 2017

("在美国加州大学戴维斯分校成立了中国共产党支部 * * * 美国1938年实施的《外国代理人登记法》规定,任何受外国政府或政府控制,或接受其指示的个人和组织必须在美国司法部注册")

My comment:
(a) I read it, but was puzzled how FARA applies to the situation. I had been under the impression that FARA applies to foreign governments.
(b) Nine hours before VOA publishes the above, South China Morning Post (SCMP) has published a similar report (so far the only English-language report). So I consult it.

Nectar Gan and Zhuang Pinghui, Why a Chinese Communist Party Branch at the University of California, Davis, Was Disbanded. SCMP, Nov 20, 2017
www.scmp.com/news/china/policies ... y-branch-university
("The US Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) requires all individuals and groups acting under the direction or control of a foreign government or political party to register with the Department of Justice in advance and regularly report their activities")
(c) FARA. US Department of Justice, undated
https://www.fara.gov

, whose bottom supplies law ("22 USC § 611 et seq") and regulation (Code of Federal Regulations; CFR for short)/ The former includes § 611 Definitions: "(b) The term 'foreign principal' includes— (1) a government of a foreign country and a foreign political party * * * ")

So it is not that federal law bans a CCP branch in US. Instead the Chinese scholars who founded it had to register themselves as foreign agents.

DPP has branches in US, eg 民主進步黨美西黨部 民進黨矽谷支部. (A female DPP party officer in US even got involved in the spying case of Lt. Cmdr Edward C Lin.) So does KMT.
