Last week, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., introduced the “Deterring Communist Chinese Aggression Against Taiwan Through Financial Sanctions Act,” a bill “which would impose devastating financial sanctions on the Chinese government if Communist China...
“The bill would reinstate the policy in place before 2014, which granted People’s Republic of China (PRC) applicants one-year multi-entry visas. PRC applicants, some of whom engage in espionage and other malign activity, should undergo regular consular interviews and screening to ensure they have a legitimate reason to travel to the United States,” the senators’ offices noted.
In his letter, Scott stresses that under no circumstance should the global community give Communist China an international platform to whitewash its crimes, which is what will happen if they are allowed to host the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing.
Besides granting Hong Kong protester Priority 2 Refugee Status, the bill would also waive immigration intent for non-immigrant visas and let refugees who have their citizenship revoked by the Chinese regime stay in the U.S. The bill would end in five years.
Scott’s resolution, which he brought out last month, would urge the IOC to move the 2022 games to another country. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is cosponsoring the resolution. So are Republican U.S. Sens. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Mike Braun and Todd Young of Indiana, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma.
Back in June, Rubio introduced the “Hong Kong Safe Harbor Act” with the support of U.S. Sens. Ben Cardin, D-Mary., Bob Menendez, D-NJ, Jeff Merkley, D-Oreg., and Todd Young, R-Ind. The bill “would provide those Hong Kongers who peacefully protested Beijing’s corrupt justice system, and have a well-founded fear of persecution, to be eligible for Priority 2 Refugee status” and is in “response to the People’s Republic of China (PRC) actions to implement its Law of the People’s Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.”
On Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., sent a letter to leaders of NBA teams, Fortune 500 companies, the United Nations, and media urging them to use their respective roles to put human rights over profits, and stand with the Uyghurs and Hong Kongers living under the oppression of Communist China and General Secretary Xi Jinping.
For almost a year, Scott has been urging the IOC to reconsider its decision to host the 2022 Winter Olympics in Communist China as General Secretary Xi Jinping commits genocide against the Uyghurs in Xinjiang and restricts the human rights of Hong Kongers.
Last week, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., sent a letter to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressing condolences for the loss of 20 Indian soldiers last month during the Chinese assault on Indian troops in the Galwan Valley, and offering his support as India continues to stand strong against Communist China and General Secretary of the Communist Party Xi.
The bill “would provide those Hong Kongers who peacefully protested Beijing’s corrupt justice system, and have a well-founded fear of persecution, to be eligible for Priority 2 Refugee status” and is in “response to the People’s Republic of China (PRC) actions to implement its Law of the People’s Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.”
