Lipinski Statement on Legislation Responding to Chinese Government's Crackdown on Protests in Hong Kong

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) released the following statement today:

“Today the House passed two Senate bills to condemn the Chinese government’s crackdown on Hong Kong protesters, authorize sanctions against those who engage in human rights violations there, and bar the export of police gear to Hong Kong. I am optimistic that the President will sign this important legislation and make clear our nation’s position that cries for liberty must never be silenced. Hong Kong’s leadership must protect the rights of protesters to exercise democratic expression.”
