(PatriotWise.com)- On Thursday, President Joe Biden once again muddied the waters on America’s position on China – signing a new bill designed to punish the Chinese Communist Party for its constant and horrific human rights abuses against ethnic minorities.
The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act will stop the importation of goods from the Xinjiang region of China, where millions of ethnic minorities including Uyghur Muslims have been forced into concentration camps where they are “re-educated,” tortured, forced to work, and even sexually abused by members of the Chinese military.
The Biden administration, in signing the law, will build on existing restrictions on the export of products to be used by biotechnology companies in China who use new biotech to commit human rights abuses and to spy on their citizens.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement that the Biden administration plans to work with Congress to implement the bill and ensure that global supply chains remain free of forced labor.
It’s a good sign that Biden at least knows that this is the right thing to do, but let’s be honest…if it wasn’t for Republican legislators banging this drum for so many years, would the Biden administration have really taken tough action on China?
Would Joe Biden really be stepping in and doing something about this, knowing that his family stands to profit even more from their shady business deals with Chinese investment firms?
Cough, Hunter Biden, cough.
Republican Senator for Florida Marco Rubio, a co-sponsor of the legislation, insisted that the new bill would “fundamentally change” America’s relationship with Beijing.
Let’s hope so.
