This is the September 26, 2018 hearing on "China's Repression and Internment of Uyghurs: U.S. Policy Responses," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Ted Yoho: "The word 'dystopia' is frequently used to describe the Chinese Communist Party's repression in the northwest of China. There is good reason for this. What's happening there should be confined to science fiction but, unfortunately, it's not. The party calls this region Xinjiang, and those who live there sometimes refer to it as East Turkestan. The Uyghurs, a Turkic Muslim people, have historically been the region's majority population and remain a plurality. [...] The party has used the specter of terrorism to excuse its abuses and scapegoat the victims. But the truth is the victims are men and women, young and old, from every walk of life. They are not targeted based on extremism. They are targeted based on their religion and ethnicity." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Adrian Zenz, Nury Turkel, and Justin Jacobs.
