Rubio, Kaine Bill to Reauthorize North Korean Human Rights Act Passes Senate

Dec 12, 2022 | Press Releases

U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) applauded the U.S. Senate’s unanimous passage of their North Korean Human Rights Reauthorization Act of 2022. The bipartisan legislation responds to the ongoing human rights crisis occurring under the Kim Jong-un regime by reauthorizing the North Korean Human Rights Act of 2004 for an additional five years. The bill now heads to the U.S. House of Representatives for consideration.

  • “The United States must always stand up against the poison of totalitarianism, which continues to inflict horrific suffering on the North Korean people. The House of Representatives should take up this bill immediately to provide much-needed relief to those who are forced to live under Kim’s cruel regime.” — Senator Rubio

  • “The ongoing abuses being committed by the North Korean regime are a direct affront to the values enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. With today’s Senate passage of this bipartisan legislation, we reaffirm our support for the North Korean people, who continue to have their most basic freedoms denied.” — Senator Kaine
