Senate Democrats Block Proposal to Block Chinese Imports Made with Uighur Slave Labor

Senate Democrats reportedly blocked a law on Wednesday to prohibit imports made with Uighur slave labor for fear that it would hamper efforts to win China’s participation in a climate agreement. Democrats excluded the Uighur Forced Labor Prevention Act, which was sponsored by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), after members of the party privately objected, according to sources cited Thursday by The Washington Free Beacon’s Alana Goodman.
