Earlier this year, Andrew Chen*, a junior adviser to the Australian government, visited the country’s Ministry of Defense to attend a meeting.

He and his colleagues walked into the Ministry of National Defense building and took out their government documents. A security guard stopped Mr. Chen and pulled him aside.

“They asked to take a photo of me, like a portrait, just in the hall,” he said.

“Just ask me to be alone. The white colleague with me didn’t ask for that,” said Mr. Chen, a Chinese-Australian.
