DHS Issues New Ban On Tomato And Cotton Imports From Xinjiang To Combat Chinese Slave Labor
The U.S. will ban imports of cotton and tomato products from the Xinjiang region of China in an effort to eliminate slave labor from domestic supply chains, the Department of Homeland Security announced Wednesday.
An ongoing investigation found that forced labor is being used in the Xinjiang Province of China where the Chinese government has detained over one million Uighurs and other minorities in “re-education” internment camps because of their ethnic and religious affiliations, Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli said in a press briefing Wednesday.
