Feds Seize 'Made in Chinese Prison Camp' Hair Weaves
Made in China is false advertising.
These Chinese Communist products, even when they are properly labeled as to their place of origin (and they often aren't) ought to be correctly described as Made by Chinese Slave Labor or Made by Chinese Prison Camps.
And it's telling how American lefties, who claim to care a lot about working conditions, are fine with slave labor in China (or Qatar).
Federal authorities in New York on Wednesday seized a shipment of weaves and other beauty accessories suspected to be made out of human hair taken from people locked inside a Chinese internment camp.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials told The Associated Press that 13 tons (11.8 metric tonnes) of hair products worth an estimated $800,000 were in the shipment.
This is the second time this year that CBP has slapped one of its rare detention orders on shipments of hair weaves from China, based on suspicions that people making them face human rights abuses. The orders are used to hold shipping containers at the U.S. ports of entry until the agency can investigate claims of wrongdoing.
That would be the organization that Senator Elizabeth Warren and other lefties would like to get rid of.
Wednesday’s shipment was made by Lop County Meixin Hair Product Co. Ltd. In May, a similar detention was placed on Hetian Haolin Hair Accessories Co. Ltd., although those weaves were synthetic, not human, the agency said. Hetian Haolin’s products were imported by Os Hair in Duluth, Georgia, and I & I Hair, headquartered in Dallas. I & I’s weaves are sold under the Innocence brand to salons and individuals around the U.S.
But it's a good thing that All Lives Don't Matter. The prisoners in China aren't the sort whose lives matter to the Left, because guess how many of the corporations signaling their Black Lives Matter virtue are complicit in it?
Corporations mentioned in the report have had varied responses. Coca-Cola said in a statement it prohibits the use of all forms of forced labor and said its sugar supplier in Xinjiang passed an internal audit.
Nike said in a statement that it does not directly source any products in the Xinjiang region and has been reviewing suppliers outside the area “to identify and assess potential risks” to Uighurs and other minorities amid reports that some have been sent to other parts of China to work under repressive conditions.
Can we get a Netflix series about a young man in China growing up in a prison camp making Colin Kaepernick gear?
Nah, his life doesn't matter.
