Last I checked Ms. Lam was "installed" as Chief Executive by the PRC and she is highly supportive of the Security Law that was passed in Beijing last month. Here is how the South China Morning Post sees it:
"Lam's comments came in defense of Beijing's controversial move to craft and pass a national security law for Hong Kong designed to "prevent, stop and punish" secession, subversion, terrorism and foreign interference in the city.
The move has sparked concerns over human rights and the city's long-standing freedoms, and raised questions as to how a law drafted by the mainland can be smoothly adopted to Hong Kong's common law system.
On Tuesday, Lam again pointed to foreign pressure in reiterating the need for Beijing to safeguard national security.
Citing the late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping's quote that "there are some things Hong Kong can't solve without the central government", Lam said the time for Beijing to step in had arrived.
When pushed to address specific legal principles and the content of the new law, Lam again said she was unable to comment as the draft legislation was not yet available.
Questions she declined to answer included whether future June 4 vigils to commemorate the Tiananmen Square crackdown might be banned under the new law, and whether people would still be allowed to chant the frequent vigil slogan "end one-party dictatorship".
In a rare show of unity, lawmakers from the major parties in the Legco have accused Lam of "bending a knee to Xi" in her support of the Security Law."
