June 29, 2020

Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement after China passed a national security law for Hong Kong:

"Xi Jinping and his Communist thugs must face severe consequences for crushing Hong Kong's freedoms. The House of Representatives should pass the Hong Kong Autonomy Act to impose punishing sanctions on Chinese Communist Party officials. The administration should consider all options at its disposal to deny Beijing the benefits of Hong Kong's special financial and economic status. We cannot ignore China's draconian actions."
