Chinese woman detained for US presidential resort breach likely to refused bail

 A Chinese woman charged with lying to briefly enter US President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club is expected to learn whether she will be granted bail, although that likely does not matter. 
Federal Magistrate Judge William Matthewman is scheduled to decide Monday whether Yujing Zhang can be released on bail on charges of lying to federal agents and illegal entry. Her visa has been revoked, however, meaning immigration officials would likely detain her if the 32-year-old posts bail. 
Zhang was arrested March 30 after Secret Service agents say falsely told agents she is a member of the Florida club. 
Agents say she told a clerk inside she was there for a nonexistent Chinese American event. She was arrested after agents found her carrying four cellphones, an external hard drive and a thumb drive containing computer malware. -AP
