The Senate just passed the bill a few minutes ago. This legislation has recently unanimously passed both a Senate and House committee. Since last Thursday, U.S. Senators have been looking for the quick passage of this bill. The passage will be the great news for the Hong Kong people who have been fighting for their freedom and HK autonomy against CCP dictating regime in the last five months.
The bill “Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Acts 2019”, which was promoted by Congress, is considered to be an enhanced version of the 1992 US-Hong Kong Policy Act. The new bill requires 1) Secretary of State must certify that HK deserves special treatment 2) Requires a WRITTEN strategy from President that covers what America will do in the erosion of HK autonomy 3) Impose sanctions on those who violate Hong Kong’s autonomy and human rights, such as refusing entry and freezing of assets in the United States 4) Requires Commerce Dept for do a annual report for next 7 years about CCP using HK to steal sensitive technology.
