Rubio on DHS’ Minimal Steps to Implement UFLPA

Jun 9, 2023 | Comunicados de Prensa

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), author of the bipartisan Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, released a statement after the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced just two new additions to the UFLPA entity list.

  • “While today’s announcement by DHS to punish more bad actors is welcomed, it is just a drop in the bucket and must go further. The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act requires the U.S. government to block all imports from Xinjiang, as well as from programs that transfer Uyghurs elsewhere in China, unless the companies involved can prove their supply chains are free of slave labor. That is clearly not happening. Instead, the Biden Administration’s current case-by-case approach is giving a free pass to many companies still profiting from slave labor.” – Senator Rubio
