China Aid Press Release,
Using information garnered from a meeting with a China Aid delegation, Marco Rubio recently took the Senate floor to highlight the suffering of two Christian human rights lawyers.
After opening his speech with a celebration of the American freedom to agree with or openly resist governmental power, Rubio compared this situation to that of China, whose flagrant abuse of human rights criminalizes those who disagree with the Communist regime. He raised the cases of two human rights attorneys, Jiang Tianyong and Tang Jingling, honoring the requests of their wives, whom he met last week as part of a China Aid delegation.
