The U.S. House of Representatives approved legislation on Tuesday calling for “targeted sanctions” against senior Chinese officials, including the Communist Party’s secretary in the Xinjiang region, Chen Quanguo. The Uighur Human Rights Policy Act would require President Donald Trump to condemn the crackdown in Xinjiang and call for the closure of the detention camps. China is holding as many as 1 million Uighurs and other Muslim minorities in so-called reeducation camps.
