Washington: The US House of Representatives on Wednesday approved an overwhelming majority to send President Donald Trump to the White House to veto or sign legislation, calling for a ban on Chinese officials responsible for the persecution of Uygur Muslims.
The tally was 413–1. Near-unanimous support in Congress – the Senate unanimously passed the bill – pressures Trump to impose human rights restrictions on China.
Although Trump’s fellow Republicans in Congress said they expected him to sign the bill, the White House has not yet indicated whether he would do so. Aide did not respond to requests for comment.
The bill calls for sanctions against those responsible for the repression of Uygar and other Muslim groups in China’s Xinjiang province, where the United Nations estimates that more than a million Muslims have been detained in the camps.
The region’s Communist Party secretary, Chen Kwango, blamed a member of China’s powerful Politburo for “gross human rights violations” against him.
Republican Senator Marco Rubio said, “Congress gave a clear message that the Chinese government cannot do any disrespect.”
Tensions between Trump and China’s government have increased in recent weeks as Trump blamed Beijing for worsening the coronovirus epidemic.
The bill calls for steps from US companies or individuals working in the Xinjiang region to ensure that their products do not include parts that use forced labor.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement, “Today, with this overwhelming bipartisan law, the United States Congress is taking drastic measures to combat human rights abuses against Beijing’s Uigars.”
China denies the abuse and says that the camps provide vocational training.
Voting on Wednesday was historic, the first use of proxy voting due to an epidemic.
