U.S. Imposes Visa Restrictions on Certain Employees of Chinese Technology Companies that Abuse Human Rights [ https://www.state.gov/u-s-imposes-visa-restrictions-on-certain-employees-of-chinese-technology-companies-that-abuse-human-rights/ ] 07/15/2020 10:49 AM EDT
Michael R. Pompeo, Secretary of State
The United States of America has long been a beacon of hope for the worlds most oppressed peoples, and a voice for those who have been silenced. We have been especially vocal about the Chinese Communist Partys human rights abuses, which rank among the worst in the world.
Today, the State Department is imposing visa restrictions on certain employees of Chinese technology companies that provide material support to regimes engaging in human rights abuses globally. Under Section 212(a)(3)(C) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, an alien is inadmissible to the United States if the Secretary of State has reason to believe the aliens entry would have potentially serious adverse foreign policy consequences for the United States.
Companies impacted by todays action include Huawei, an arm of the CCPs surveillance state that censors political dissidents and enables mass internment camps in Xinjiang and the indentured servitude of its population shipped all over China. Certain Huawei employees provide material support to the CCP regime that commits human rights abuses.
Telecommunications companies around the world should consider themselves on notice: If they are doing business with Huawei, they are doing business with human rights abusers.
