U.S. Lawmakers Launch Bill Targeting Four CCP Companies

On December 15, U.S. Republican Senator Marco Rubio and Representative August Pfluger jointly launched the Uighur Human Rights Sanctions Review Act. They believe that those Chinese companies, Hikvision, Dahua, Tiandy, and BGI, which are all controlled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), provided the CCP with technical equipment they used to carry out genocide against Uyghurs and other predominantly Muslim minorities in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. According to the regulations, within 30 days after the act takes effect, the US department of the treasury’s office of foreign assets control, and the Department of Justice must jointly consult to determine whether these CCP companies have violated the human rights of Uyghurs and other groups in Xinjiang, whether they compliant with the Global Magnitsky Act, or the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act signed into law by former President Trump on June 17, 2020, or SDN list under Executive Order 13818 signed by former President Trump on December 20, 2017. Senator Rubio said the CCP uses advanced technology to target and persecute anyone they consider an enemy of the dictatorship, and that the Biden administration must stop delaying and hold these CCP-backed companies accountable or explain why they are unwilling to do so. Rep. Pfluger said the U.S. should not use Chinese surveillance companies that help the Communist government track and monitor dissent, collect genomic data, and persecute ethnic and religious minorities.
