BEIJING (AP) — A bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers wants President Donald Trump to help Muslims respond to a sweeping crackdown in China’s northwest.
The group proposed legislation on Wednesday that would urge Trump to condemn “gross violations” of human rights in the Xinjiang region, where the U.N. estimates that as many as 1 million Uighurs and other predominantly Muslim minorities are being held in arbitrary detention. It would call on Trump to press his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, to close the “political re-education camps” immediately.
