(Washington, D.C.—Feb. 3, 2017) Senator Marco Rubio urged newly-appointed members of U.S. government to support the cases of imprisoned Chinese dissidents, recounting his meetings with members of a China Aid delegation on social media yesterday.

Rubio, who co-chairs the Congressional-Executive Commission on China, reiterated his support of Chinese dissidents by recounting his meeting with the wives of two jailed Christian human rights lawyers, Jiang Tianyong and Tang Jingling. These women were members of a China Aid-led delegation that met with U.S. lawmakers this week in order to raise awareness of China’s human rights and religious freedom violations.

Rubio posted about the meeting on Twitter and encouraged the Trump Administration and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to “make their cause our nation’s cause” in a Facebook post on Feb. 2.

Rubio’s Facebook statement can be read in full below.

China Aid hosts delegations, such as the one that met with Senator Rubio, in order to shed light on the horrible abuses occurring within China and promote religious freedom, human rights, and rule of law.
