I flew to Hong Kong to release @hrw ’s new World Report. This year it describes how the Chinese government is undermining the international human rights system. But the authorities just blocked my entrance to Hong Kong, illustrating the worsening problem.

Troubled by the ongoing violence in Hong Kong. The overwhelming majority of HK citizens aspire for greater political freedom—it’s time for Leader McConnell to allow a vote on the bipartisan Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019.

The Chinese Communist Party and their puppets in Hong Kong continue to silence and intimidate those speaking up for democracy and human rights. The new security law in #HongKong  is nothing more than a direct assault on freedom and autonomy.

We need to act on the tragedy unfolding in Hong Kong. Why is President Trump giving the Chinese Communist Party a free hand? @senatemajldr  McConnell: Why have you buried the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act in your legislative graveyard?

The protesters throughout #HongKong  have demonstrated extraordinary bravery in defense of their freedom. I have cosponsored S.1838, the 'Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act,' to support them. I urge the Senate to pass this bill and #StandWithHongKong .

Every day, I’m inspired by the heroism of the countless protestors in Hong Kong working to advance the cause of democracy and human rights. Their bravery is reminding the world of the power of nonviolent action.

Calling on all sides to deescalate violence and for Senator McConnell to have an immediate vote on the bipartisan Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act.

The police violence against protestors in Hong Kong is unacceptable. We must support these brave individuals standing against Chinese Communist Party tyranny and pass the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act.

The U.S. Senate has now joined the House of Representatives in passing the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. The people of #HongKong  have woken up to the news that both branches of the U.S. Congress stand with you in your fight for democracy and the rule of law.

Every American has the right to voice their support for democracy and human rights for Hong Kong. Full stop.
