WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement following new reports showing “clear evidence” that Communist China is guilty of genocide against Uyghurs.
Senator Rick Scott said, “It’s clear and I’ve been saying it for a year – the brutal crimes being perpetrated in Communist China by General Secretary Xi are a genocide, and it’s time for every freedom-loving nation in the world to recognize and condemn these atrocities. Under General Secretary Xi’s leadership, the Chinese Communist Party has executed a campaign to abuse, harass and destroy the Uyghur population. They have forcibly sterilized women and separated children from their families in an attempt to erase the Uyghur culture. When Uyghurs are not being tortured and brainwashed in concentration camps, they are forced into slave labor. As Communist China continues to show the world its true colors, these horrific abuses cannot be ignored.
“The Biden Administration must hold Communist China accountable by using every tool at our disposal. I also look forward to President Biden accepting my request for a meeting to discuss Communist China’s genocide and why the 2022 Olympic Games must be moved to a nation which truly respects human rights.”
