Though reasoning is off.

Were you really unaware? Why are you surprised?

RSG (The Rebbe's BIL, older SIL of Frierdike Rebbe) did visit (and IINM purchased some RE there).

I see your edit...

Yes I was.

I'm surprised because if the reason stated is correct, that's well, surprising.

What was the real reasoning?

IINM there were two reasons given (actually one mainly for visiting, and another for moving there):

1. Not confident that would be allowed (halachically) to go out of EY once entering.
2. The ability to send emissaries and conduct activities in certain other countries.

It should also be noted that after the establishment of the State of Israel, the Frierdike Rebbe made an effort to be naturalized in the US (IINM the only color video of the Frierdiker Rebbe that exists, documents the ceremony).

ETA: @Yehuda57 provided a more accurate and detailed response below.

Are you aware that יהדות התורה והמדינה was written at the Rebbe's behest (and rumor has it that when the final version was published the Rebbe commented נישט גענוג שארף)?

יתמו חטאים (ולא חוטאים) מן הארץ.

Unfortunately I don't think enough youngsters are aware of it.  Pretty amazing how things don't change and it's as relevant and true today as it was when written (probably around 60 years ago).

Though it is quoted in this contemporary website.

He also worked at the Rebbe's secretariat IINM.

I am sure you are aware that the Rebbe came to nichum aveilim when the R Yoelish was sitting Shiva.

The dates are a bit off

Did you check the Julian calendar which was in use in the Russian Empire at the time.

Still off. IIRC correctly the Rebbe once publicly mentioned that he is older on his papers than his real age.

Yup. Far off. As are other grave factual errors. Doesn't seem like a very professional background check.

In the US? I’m not so sure. I remember hearing talk of Russian agents in 770 holding upside down Siddurim…

Keep in mind that it's based on information they received from Russian immigrants who knew that the number one rule was to lie to authorities, so pretty sure chassidim gave false information whenever questioned, and lav davka the chassidim themselves knew the correct information
