Progress in the Senate!

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act unanimously on October 15, 2019. It was passed out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on September 25th. Since then, we have been waiting for the full Senate to take action on the bill. It has many co-sponsors, and the sponsors of the Senate bill have been getting impatient. Finally, we are seeing some action on this very important bill:

The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, is signaling that the bill will be voted on in the Senate soon. Let’s hope he follows through, and that it will be signed into law by President Trump very soon.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Says a Crackdown in Hong Kong Would be “Completely Unacceptable”

Reuters China reports that the U.S. Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, said that a violent crackdown on protesters in Hong Kong would be “completely unacceptable.”

“The people of Hong Kong are bravely standing up to the Chinese Communist Party as Beijing tries to encroach on their autonomy and freedom,” McConnell wrote in tweet.
“Any violent crackdown would be completely unacceptable. … The world is watching.”

Reuters China quoting Mitch McConnell

The world is watching. China should negotiate in good faith and honor the agreements that were made when Hong Kong was returned to Chinese control.
