Elizabeth Freund Larus, Chairman of the Department of Political Science and International Affairs, commented on Indus News on China’s sanctioning of U.S. officials. Larus indicated that China imposed sanctions on U.S. Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, U.S. Rep. Chris Smith, and U.S. Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback in retaliation for their support of the newly passed Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act, and for their criticism of Chinese human rights abuses in Hong Kong and in Muslim-majority populated Xinjiang Province. Larus also indicated that the U.S. Congress compelled President Trump to invoke the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act against four Chinese officials last week for their role in abusing human rights in Xinjiang.
