U.S. Senate Passes Bill To Ban All Products From China's Xinjiang
The latest effort in Washington to punish Beijing for what U.S. officials say is an ongoing genocide against Uyghurs and other Muslim groups.
The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act would create a "rebuttable presumption" assuming goods manufactured in Xinjiang are made with forced labor and therefore banned under the 1930 Tariff Act, unless otherwise certified by U.S. authorities.
It would be up to importers to prove otherwise. The bill will now move to the House. Businesses with supply chains or investments in Xinjiang already risked violating American law.
