The House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning the treatment of Uyghurs and other minorities in China.

The bill, "Condemning the ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity being committed against Uyghurs and members of other religious and ethnic minority groups by the People's Republic of China," was sponsored by Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas). 

The legislation was introduced in April and passed Wednesday night by 427-1.  

The Chinese government is already angry with the United States after President Joe Biden decided to diplomatically boycott the Beijing Olympics.
