WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement regarding the ongoing demonstrations in Hong Kong in response to the Chinese Communist Party:

"The Chinese Communist Party is deepening its campaign to deprive Hong Kong of its freedom and autonomy. The people of Hong Kong have responded with ten weeks of protests, which have been met with more threats and deepening repression.

"America's relationship with Hong Kong is premised on its autonomy from China, and if the Communist Party refuses to ensure that autonomy then the United States should and will reevaluate that relationship. I will continue to push the Hong Kong Policy Reevaluation Act, which would begin that process, and will work with my colleagues to pass it, until authorities withdraw the extradition bill from future consideration and take steps to ensure that Hong Kong's special status is protected."
