Hong Kong needs to remain a free, democratic, and autonomous entity but is facing increasing interference from the communist Chinese government. This bipartisan bill would show that the U.S. stands with Hong Kong by sanctioning those violating human rights and taking steps to protect American citizens and businesses in the event that extradition from Hong Kong to China is allowed.
If China wants to undermine Hong Kong’s autonomy and status as a democratic government it’s going to do so whether or not the U.S. threatens sanctions in response. It may be a bipartisan effort, but this bill ultimately won’t do much to protect human rights or democracy in Hong Kong.
