China will reportedly no longer accept deportees from the United States as a means of vengeance for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) recent trip to Taiwan.
China made the announcement on Friday as part of its series of retaliations against the U.S. over the 82-year-old lawmaker’s trip, which saw Pelosi defying both the Biden administration and China. At the time of the trip, Pelosi said it was to be viewed as an “unequivocal statement that America stands” with the “island of resilience.”
As Breitbart News reported:
Pelosi, in the op-ed, pointed to the Taiwan Relations Act, identifying it as “one of the most important pillars of U.S. Foreign policy in the Asia Pacific.” The act, she wrote, provided the framework for a relationship “rooted in shared interests and values: self-determination and self-government, democracy and freedom, human dignity and human rights.”
