Blackburn Sounds Alarm On Recently Revealed CCP Police Files In Conversation With Ambassador Bremberg

June 2, 2022

NASHVILLE, TENN.  U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) sounded the alarm on the atrocious Xinjiang police files during a conversation with President and CEO of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, Ambassador Andrew Bremberg, on Unmuted with Marsha.

 “The detailed reports in the Xinjiang police files reveal the horrifying truth about Xi Jinping and his communist regime – from shoot-to-kill policies, to forced labor, and nonstop surveillance. Their monstrous, inhumane attempt to push revisionist history and erase an entire culture for simply practicing religious freedom is only the beginning. This should be an immediate wake-up call to the West of just how far the CCP is willing to go to get their way,” said Senator Blackburn.




  • A series of police files recently obtained by numerous news outlets have revealed details of the Chinese Communist Party’s use of internment camps and described the routine use of armed officers and the existence of a shoot-to-kill policy for those trying to escape.


  • In Xinjiang, China, the government is currently detaining over 1 million Uyghurs for attempting to exercise religious freedom.


  • Senator Blackburn is a co-sponsor of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, which ensures goods that are manufactured using Uyghur forced labor in Xinjiang are prohibited from entering the United States. This legislation, signed by President Biden, will take effect on June 21, 2022.


  • Senator Blackburn also introduced the Iran China Accountability Act, which includes a provision to halt the internment of the Muslim Uyghurs. 


  • Ambassador Bremberg previously served as the Representative of the United States to the Office of the United Nations and Other International Organizations in Geneva.
