Rubio on DHS’ Continued Minimal Steps to Implement UFLPA

Sep 26, 2023 | Press Releases

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced three additions to the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) Entity List. These are the first additions by the Biden Administration since June.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), author of the bipartisan Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, released a statement urging the Biden Administration to add additional companies to the UFLPA Entity List.

  • “The Biden Administration is not moving fast enough to list entities under the UFLPA for slave labor practices. While today’s additions are a positive step, the notable delay in enforcing this law raises serious concerns.
  • “There are potentially thousands of China-based companies and entities complicit in slave labor. The current pace of implementation suggests that it could take DHS decades to fully enforce the law. The slow pace emboldens those profiting from slave labor.” – Senator Rubio

Flashback… In June 2023, Rubio issued a statement following DHS’ announcement it was designating two entities to the UFLPA Entity List.
