A Chinese national was arrested Wednesday for illegally entering President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Florida and refusing to leave — the second time a person from China was arrested for trespassing on the property this year, reports said.
Jing Lu, 56, was ordered off the property by the club’s private security officers, but she returned to take photos and the club called police to arrest her, according to The Palm Beach Post.
When Palm Beach County police arrived to arrest the woman, it was discovered that she had an expired visa.
Lu was charged with loitering and prowling. She was being held Wednesday night at the Palm Beach County jail.
Trump, who is expected to travel to the resort with his family for the holidays, was heading to Michigan for a campaign rally on Wednesday as the US House voted to impeach him.

The arrest comes after an April incident when Secret Service agents busted a woman carrying a pair of Chinese passports and a thumb drive at the resort.
Yujing Zhang, 32, was trying to gain access to an event advertised on Chinese-language social media by Li “Cindy” Yang, the South Florida massage parlor entrepreneur who operated a consulting business selling access to President Trump and his family, the Miami Herald reported.
There was no indication on Wednesday night that the two incidents were connected.
