Senator Rubio Press:

The defense of human rights and democracy are in our moral and national interest.
Senator Marco Rubio's Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act reaffirms U.S. commitment to democracy, human rights, and the rule of law in #HongKong

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Jim Risch (R-ID), Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today reintroduced the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, bipartisan legislation that would reaffirm U.S. commitment to democracy, human rights, and the rule of law at a time when Hong Kong’s autonomy is under assault by interference from the Chinese government and Communist Party.

Co-sponsors include Senators Angus King (I-ME), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Ed Markey (D-MA) and Tom Cotton (R-AR). Representatives Jim McGovern (D-MA) and Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ) introduced companion legislation in the House.

“As over one million Hong Kongers take to the streets protesting amendments to the territory’s extradition law, the U.S. must send a strong message that we stand with those peacefully advocating for freedom and the rule of law and against Beijing’s growing interference in Hong Kong affairs,” Rubio said. “I am proud to re-introduce legislation that places the U.S. firmly on the side of human rights and democracy and against those who would erode the freedoms and autonomy guaranteed to the people of Hong Kong, freedoms that have made the city a prosperous global commercial hub governed by the rule of law.”

“America’s strength has been and always will be in our values. We cannot stand idly by as the rights of the people of Hong Kong are trampled on by China,” Cardin said. “I’m proud of our continued, bipartisan affirmation of the United States’ commitment to Hong Kong’s autonomy, to Hong Kong’s vibrant civil society and to the basic human rights of the people of Hong Kong.”

“A Hong Kong that safeguards its autonomy, upholds fundamental freedoms, and maintains an open business environment is good for Hong Kong, good for the United States, and good for the world,” Chairman Risch said . Bipartisan concern about the erosion of Hong Kong’s autonomy has been growing for several years, but the proposed extradition law has taken that concern to new heights. I continue to urge that the extradition law be withdrawn or indefinitely postponed. Passage will compel the U.S. Senate to reevaluate aspects of the U.S.-Hong Kong relationship.”

“As the world bears witness to the brutality with which security forces in Hong Kong are responding to tens of thousands of pro-democracy activists in a display of force not seen in years, I am proud to join my colleagues in introducing this important legislation to reaffirm our steadfast support for Hong Kong’s autonomy, democracy and respect for human rights,” Ranking Member Menendez said. “The United States must use all of our diplomatic tools to stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Hong Kong in the face of this latest effort by Beijing to censor them and infringe upon their basic rights and freedoms.”

“The protests in Hong Kong are grounded in the removal of an unpopular and unfair extradition bill,” said Senator Toomey. “However, the fight extends well beyond one piece of legislation. It extends to stopping the growth of Chinese authoritarianism, which poses a threat to basic human rights, including the right to free speech, the right to a fair trial, and the right to a genuinely representative government. This bipartisan legislation makes clear that the United States stands alongside the Hong Kong people in their struggle for freedom, and I urge all my colleagues to support this measure.”


The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act would:

Require the Secretary of State to issue an annual certification of Hong Kong’s autonomy to justify special treatment afforded to Hong Kong by the U.S. Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992.
Require the President to identify persons responsible for the abductions of Hong Kong booksellers and journalists and those complicit in suppressing basic freedoms in Hong Kong, including those complicit in the forced removal of individuals exercising internationally recognized rights to mainland China for detention or trial, and to freeze their U.S.-based assets and deny them entry to the United States.
Require the President to issue a strategy to protect U.S. citizens and businesses from the implications of a revised Fugitive Offenders Ordinance, including by determining whether to revise the U.S.-Hong Kong extradition agreement and the State Department’s travel advisory for Hong Kong.
Require the Secretary of Commerce to issue an annual report assessing whether the Government of Hong Kong is adequately enforcing both U.S. export regulations regarding sensitive dual-use items and U.S. and U.N. sanctions, particularly regarding Iran and North Korea.
Make clear that visa applicants shall not be denied visas on the basis of the applicant’s arrest, detention or other adverse government action taken as a result of their participation in the nonviolent protest activities related to pro-democracy advocacy, human rights, or the rule of law in Hong Kong.

新民党主席叶刘淑仪及副主席容海恩,拜访新任美国驻港澳总领事史墨客(Hanscom Smith),透过对方向美国国会领袖转交新民党意见书,强烈呼吁美国国会不要通过《香港人权与民主法案》。

据《星岛日报》报道,新民党指出,回归后,香港的民主及人权状况一直良好。而行政长官已于9月4日宣布正式撤回修订条例草案,因此,新民党认为美国国会没有通过《法案》的理由。

新民党强调,若法案获得通过,将损害港美长期以来互惠互利的合作关系,及对香港的经济、以及国际社会对香港的观感造成负面影响。

新民党重申,支持修订《逃犯条例》,因为该条例有助打击跨境罪行,特别是涉及中国大陆、澳门及台湾的跨境罪行。

请各位香港朋友看看有这事吗?
有 似乎沒用
新民党被中共收买了
新民黨是親共的黨派,反對人權民主法案不意外。美國一直在看香港局勢發展,他們不可能欺騙到美國議員。按目前事態,法案通過無人可擋,只是時間問題。大概十月前後就會通過,給中共送一份精緻的生日禮物。

新黨派主席葉劉淑儀已被共和黨資深黨員俞懷松點名要加入制裁名單,為國慶提前加添了氣氛。以我觀察,有部分香港親共派因此變得寒蟬。

當香港「反送中」運動進入9月,大家關心焦點集中 #美國國會 能否通過《香港人權與民主法案》。不講不知道,這條能夠抓緊中港政府要害、增加抗命者推進民主運動籌碼的法案,今日議員聯署(Co-sponsor)人數已經升至43人!
Co-sponsor是美國國會的特有制度之一。國會在編排議程時,議員的聯署人數是考慮先後次序的主要因素。參眾兩院議長會根據不同法案的聯署數目,安排法案審議的優先次序,聯署數目越多,自然會優先處理。
安排法案審議除聯署人數外,還有另一個決定因素,就是眾議會議長佩洛西(她是僅次於正副總統之第三號權力人),她有絕對權力決定議案的先後次序,議案好大機會通過,但由於議案對中港政府影響深遠,中共港府一定會傾力去收買一些政客!

新民黨是絕對親共的,葉原本一直是港府高官,後來因為硬推23條被引咎辭職,後來她又想爭特首的位置,也是失敗了,她是非常效忠黨國的,雖然再三失意於黨國,但她還是堅定的擁護。而且她是屬於非常的強硬派,如果她做了香港特首,這次香港發生的事絕對已經遭到鎮壓了....

佩洛西:國會下週審議《香港人權與民主法案》,兩黨均支持

9月18日,美國國會眾議長佩洛西(Nancy Pelosi)聯合兩黨議員,以及香港眾志秘書長黃之鋒、歌手何韻詩、香港眾志常委羅冠聰等人一起召開記者會,宣布國會將於下週審議《香港人權與民主法案》,支持香港爭取民主和自由。

佩洛西表示,國會參眾兩院的兩黨議員都「熱情支持」這項立法。她還稱,「如果我們出於商業利益而在支持中國人權事務上不站出來,那麼我們就會失去在全世界任何地方的道義權威」。

黃之鋒在記者會上表示,感謝美國兩黨支持香港爭取自由和民主,尤其在北京的強硬態度之下。黃之鋒稱,過去三個月,很多海外留學生和外國人也都支持香港的抗議行動,「我們站在一起」,「香港人從不孤單」。

何韻詩發言稱,香港不同界別、階層、年紀的逾百萬人爭取民主和自治,這與國際社會追求的普世價值是一致的。她也表示,這次發言機會已反映出香港人並沒有被孤立,而是獲得了全球支持。
Next week, the bipartisan Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act will be marked up by @HouseForeign Affairs.
Thank you to @RepEliotEngel & @RepMcCaul for your leadership,
and to @joshuawongcf, @hoccgoomusic & their fellow activists for working to advance the cause of freedom.
