(Worthy News) – A Democratic senator on Wednesday blocked the final passage of a bipartisan bill to crack down on imports from ’s Xinjiang region, where Beijing is accused of using forced labor.

Sen. Ron Wyden, Oregon , stopped the vote Wednesday in a bid to extend President Biden’s child credit that’s been making direct payments of up to $300 per month to parents as part of relief.

Mr. Wyden’s move marks the latest in a series of obstacles for the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, which authorizes against companies that facilitate the forced labor of minority groups, including Uyghurs, in Xinjiang and prohibits imports from the region unless Customs and Border Protection determines that no forced labor was used in production.
