In the News…

A bipartisan bill has been introduced in both chambers of Congress that would force companies to disclose their business associations with manufacturers located in Xinjiang, a Chinese province where the government there has interred more than 1 million Uyghur Muslims.

The bill would press for stronger trade restrictions on China following reported abuses of religious minorities. Some in Congress argue it would make it more difficult for people to import products from Xinjiang, while others accused its sponsors of using Uyghur rights as a talking point for the coming elections.

Representative Jennifer Wexton of Virginia, the bill’s lead sponsor, said, “Crimes against humanity and perhaps even genocide are being committed by the Chinese government, and Republicans talk a good game but only if it doesn’t create any kind of burden on U.S. corporations or their profit margins—profit that may be earned off the backs of slave labor.”
