(Washington—Oct. 6, 2014) A bipartisan group of United States Senators wrote a letter to President Obama on Thursday, requesting that he make the relocation of Chinese lawyer Gao Zhisheng to the U.S. a top priority in his upcoming meetings with Chinese President Xi Jinping at November’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit.

The letter, led by Senators Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and Marco Rubio, R-Fla., included signatures from Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., James Inhofe, R-Okla., Ben Cardin, D-Md., John Cornyn, R-Texas, Ed Markey, D-Mass., Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Mark Begich, D-Alaska.

The letter, below, follows a Washington Post editorial that highlighted the results of Gao’s imprisonment and named other victims of China’s hostile human rights climate.
