Rubio Sounds Alarm on Biden Waivers, Urges Enforcement of Export Controls

Oct 14, 2022 | Press Releases

By issuing a series of high-profile exemptions, the Biden Administration is already undermining an important new rule to keep critical chips and semiconductor manufacturing equipment away from the Chinese Communist Party. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) criticized the White House’s pattern of handing out waivers that benefit Beijing at the expense of America’s national and economic security.

  • “The Biden Administration’s new export restrictions may look good on paper, but rules are only worthwhile if they are enforced. Now, just days later, the White House has already handed out exemptions to many of the biggest international chipmakers — a growing list that will allow the Chinese Communist Party to keep producing at America’s expense.  
  • “With every new waiver granted, last Friday’s announcement looks more and more like a toothless, ‘get tough on China’ press release.” — Senator Rubio

Want more? In August, Rubio called for new export control laws to expand the number of entities on U.S. trade blacklists and limit the power of big business-friendly officials at the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security to grant exemptions.
