H.R. 2621 – China Human Rights Protection Act

The China Human Rights Protection Act would establish sanctions to be imposed against any Chinese national seeking entry into the United States who has performed or assisted in human rights violations. Such human rights violations include torture, extrajudicial killings, forced abortion or sterilization, and medical or psychological experimentation or organ harvesting done without freely obtained consent.
Sanctions authorized by the legislation include the denial or revocation of an entry visa into the United States and the blocking of property transactions within the United States. An exception is made, in accordance with an international treaty, to allow entry to those travelling to the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
