Pascrell Condemns Chinese Communist Crimes
House of Representatives overwhelmingly supports Hong Kong freedom
Washington, DC, November 18, 2020
U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) today voted in favor of H.Res. 1033, a House resolution condemning the Chinese Communist Party’s continued assault on the freedoms of the people of Hong Kong. The resolution passed by voice vote.
“The people of Hong Kong are crying out for the rights of human dignity and freedom that are only guaranteed under democracy. Their bravery has inspired the world and their voices can never be silenced,” said Rep. Pascrell, a harsh critic of China’s humanitarian crimes. “The cowardly silence of Donald Trump and his chief diplomat Mike Pompeo to the Chinese Communist Party’s atrocities were a betrayal of American democratic values. But the people of the United States will always stand for freedom. And today, once again, the people’s House stands unequivocally with the people of Hong Kong.”
