Congressional Members Urge U.S. President to Help Stop Suppression of Falun Gong in China

(Minghui.org) Congressional members recently wrote to U.S. President Donald Trump, requesting that he raise the issue of human rights during his meeting with Chinese president Xi Jinping. They include House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, New Jersey Representative Chris Smith, and Florida Representative Dennis Ross.

A large number of high-ranking officials involved in the suppression have been punished under Xi’s anti-corruption campaign, but the suppression continues.

Nancy Pelosi wrote in her letter, “But human rights are also integral to a fair trading relationship in countries like China that exploit prison labor, engage in other unfair labor practices, and stifle free speech and dissent.”

On the shelves of many western politicians is the book “A China More Just,” written by Gao, which is invaluable in formulating China policies.
