    Trump Slaps Import Bans On Chinese Companies Using “Forced Labor” From Imprisoned Muslims

    Washington has announced its latest move to punish Chinese CCP officials and mainland-based companies for enabling human rights abuses in Xinjiang, the far-western region where as many as 1 million Chinese Uighur (a Muslim minority group) have reportedly been interned in a network of ‘forced labor camps’.

    The Trump administration announced Tuesday morning that it has banned imports from three Chinese companies based in the Xinjiang region of China, retaliation for Beijing’s repression of the Uighurs.

    US Customs and Border Protection on Aug. 11 issued a “withhold release order”, which is used to combat forced labor in global supply chains, against Hero Vast Group for using “convict labor and forced labor to produce the garments it manufactures.” CBP said in a statement. It issued similar orders against Lop County Meixin Hair Product Co. on June 17 and Hetian Haolin Hair Accessories Co. on May 1, according to the Tuesday announcement.

    The US plans to impose similar restrictions on six more firms, targeting cotton, textiles, tomatoes, haircare products and computer parts from the area.Those should arrive by the end of this fiscal year, the CBP said (the new fiscal year for the federal government begins Oct. 1).

    Hard labor has always been a recognized punishment and is specifically allowed for in the Constitution's prohibition on slavery.

    That's entirely different from what China is doing.

    Yeah. You are right. Prisoners sent into fire zones to fight fires risk life and limb. No union death benefit. No life insurance payout. That goes beyond cleaning weeds out of a ditch while on the chain gang.

    I'm willing to consider that risking life and limb may be different than the rock yard or stamping out license plates but as I understand it they are not forced but are induced to fight fires for pay.

    And in any case China is imprisoning people who do nothing wrong and using them for slave labor for corporations.

    Over a month after widespread allegations that China has been routinely using its Muslim Uighur population as prison laborers for products shipped to the West — specifically after 13 tons of human hair in weave products estimated to be worth over $800,000 was seized as a US port — the Department of Homeland Security announced Monday five new orders blocking the importation of products believed to be the result of forced labor.

    Acting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan underscored the new measures send a "clear message" concerning forced labor entering US supply chains.

    “Today’s Withhold Release Orders send a clear message to the international community that we will not tolerate the illicit, inhumane, and exploitative practices of forced labor in U.S. supply chains,” Morgan said, according to The Hill.

    The directives are aimed at blocking products from multiple facilities in China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region that are suspected of being either internment or 're-education camps' or as including staff made up of forced labor.

    A brief listing of the five orders via the DHS website includes the following:

    All products made with labor from the Lop County No. 4 Vocational Skills Education and Training Center in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, China.
    Hair products made in the Lop County Hair Product Industrial Park in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, China.
    Apparel produced by Yili Zhuowan Garment Manufacturing Co., Ltd. and Baoding LYSZD Trade and Business Co., Ltd in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, China.
    Cotton produced and processed by Xinjiang Junggar Cotton and Linen Co., Ltd. in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, China.
    Computer parts made by Hefei Bitland Information Technology Co., Ltd. in Anhui, China.

    Morgan added of these tightening of controls that “The Trump Administration will not stand idly by and allow foreign companies to subject vulnerable workers to forced labor while harming American businesses that respect human rights and the rule of law.”

    Eh, those are actually pretty good programs. They don't force those guys to do that (maybe it's different in Cali), they volunteer (as much as an inmate can I guess), and when they get out they're certified firefighters.

    I had a chance to work with some of them on some big fires back when I was a volunteer FF. They loved what they did, only wishing they were called up more.

    And check this out, might be the only thing California's governor Newsom has done right:

    I met a guy that works at the landfill. He was always extremely helpful and polite. After about a year he was telling me something like 6 more months. It was not until that moment that I knew he was an inmate. I never recognized the subtle stripes on his outfit. This guy learned how to operate and fix heavy equipment. He was imprisoned for 15 years because of major drug bust. I am honored to know him and think that program offered him a success avenue.

    You can see in this chart that the trade deficit was spiraling out of control before trump took office. From the looks of it now, his trade policies are starting to work. I would have to see what happens over time to make a solid conclusion though. Changes take time to register when you are dealt with such a $#@!ty hand and the chinese virus all at the same time. I was actually somewhat impressed it is going his way again considering all of the democrats who have shut down their states crippling whole industries.
