As China continues its blatant mistreatment of its Uyghur population, I supported a bipartisan proposal to ensure that goods made with forced labor in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China do not enter the United States market.
China has shown the world through various recent and past examples that the Chinese Communist Party cannot be trusted, and I have worked in Congress to take action against China, including the introduction of two pieces of legislation, H.R. 5932, the Ensuring Chinese Debt Transparency Act of 2020, which states it is the policy of the U.S. to demand more oversight of China in regard to financing and passed the House with a unanimous vote, and H.R. 6399, the Securing America’s Vaccine’s for Emergencies (SAVE) Act of 2020, which would amend the Defense Production Act (DPA) of 1950 to ensure the supply of certain medical equipment,
And, I supported S. 3744, the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020, a bill that directs the president to impose sanctions on China to ensure proper treatment of the Uyghur people, which was signed into law by the President Trump on June 17, 2020.
Human rights are not debatable, and I will continue my work to ensure that America is on the front line against human rights abusers both home and abroad.
