On June 27, seven US Senators wrote a footnoted letter to President Trump urging him to speed the procedures of targeted sanction on Xinjiang.

The letter by the seven Democratic Senators was sent to Mr. Trump “[…] to express concern about reports that your administration is delaying the imposition of targeted sanctions against Chinese officials involved in human rights abuses against the Uyghurs and Central Asian Muslim population in Xinjiang.”

The seven Senators speak openly of “the gravity of the situation” in Xinjiang, citing the State Department’s recent Country Report on Human Rights Practices, which prompted Secretary Pompeo to describe the Land of the Red Dragon as “[…] in a league of its own when it comes to human rights violation.” The letter also quotes Human Rights Watch and other organizations on the repressing and ever-controlling apparatus displayed and employed in Xinjiang, plus the testimony given by Ms. Rushan Abbas, founder, and president of “Campaign for Uyghurs,” an advocacy group based in Herndon, Virginia.
