Effect on Bay Area RE?
I know for sure some of the houses bought in my neighborhood are from dual working Chinese origin people(not sure if US or Chinese citizens).

This is interesting, but i assume it won’t go far.

Sensitive areas are pretty much all the hot sectors: Aeronautics/astronautics, computer science, some branches of physics, biotechnology (biological warfare comes to mind), and so on could all be sensitive.

It would restrict SWE pool a bit for bay area as most chinese people come here studying masters/phd.

I guess it all depends on what “sensitive” means. I know for government contractors, even greencard may not enough, citizenship is required, and for most you need additional security clearences.
