1/ I'm proud to stand with the people of #HongKong. Passage of the #ExtraditionLaw would put Hong Kong human rights advocates, business persons, journalists and American citizens at risk of rendition to mainland #China

2/ I urge Chief Executive #CarrieLam & #LegCo President #AndrewLeung to withdraw the current bill and explore alternatives that preserve #HongKong’s autonomy and protect human rights and the rule of law.


3/ As the people of #HongKong continue peaceful demonstrations, the Police Commissioner and Secretary for Security should direct #HongKong police to refrain from using excessive force and intimidation and I urge them to protect the right to free expression.

4/ Strong protections for human rights and rule of law are the foundation of Hong Kong’s prosperity & flourishing U.S.-Hong Kong relations. If the extradition law passes, Congress must look to revise the Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992 to reflect the erosion of autonomy.

5/5 This week I will join @marcorubio & @RepChrisSmith in introducing the “HK Human Rights & Democracy Act” to reaffirm U.S. commitment to human rights & the rule of law at a time when Hong Kong’s autonomy is imperiled by Chinese gov't interference & a revised #ExtraditionLaw.
