We can not remain silent. We must demand an end to this barbaric practice," said Smith, adding that Chinese officials needed to be pulled for "crimes against humanity" to justice.
The new act requires the closure of mass prison camps in the North-Western Region of Xinjiang, and includes, for the first time, the invitation to Trump, to impose sanctions against a member of the Chinese Politburo: The Secretary of the Communist party in Xinjiang, Chen Quanguo, for the conditions in the prison camps to be responsible, it said.
China protested sharp projects against the law. Spokeswoman Hua Chunying aussenamt said on Wednesday in Beijing of an "interference in internal Affairs".
