Jun 30, 2022 | Press Releases

Miami, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a video regarding his Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (P.L.117-78), which went into effect on June 21, 2022. The law bans the import of goods from the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR), or from entities outside the region that have links to forced labor programs, unless companies can prove with clear and convincing evidence that items were not made with the use of slave labor.
“American corporations and consumers can no longer turn a blind eye to the suffering of Uyghurs and other predominantly Muslim ethnic groups in XUAR,” Rubio said. “Finally, the United States is standing up to the Chinese Communist Party and its use of slave labor. The Biden Administration must strictly and aggressively enforce this law.”
