  EXPRESSING SENSE OF CONGRESS THAT CHINA SHOULD CEASE PERSECUTION OF 
                        FALUN GONG PRACTITIONERS

  Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN. Mr. Speaker, I move to suspend the rules and agree 
to the concurrent resolution (H. Con. Res. 188) expressing the sense of 
Congress that the Government of the People's Republic of China should 
cease its persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, as amended.
  The Clerk read as follows:

                            H. Con. Res. 188

       Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate 
     concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the Government of the People's Republic of China should 
     cease its persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, and its 
     representatives in the United States should cease their 
     harassment of citizens and residents of the United States who 
     practice Falun Gong and cease their attempts to put pressure 
     on officials of State and local governments in the United 
     States to refuse or withdraw support for the Falun Gong and 
     its practitioners;
       (2) the United States Government should use every 
     appropriate public and private forum to urge the Government 
     of the People's Republic of China--
       (A) to release from detention all Falun Gong practitioners 
     and put an end to the practices of torture and other cruel, 
     inhumane, and degrading treatment against them and other 
     prisoners of conscience; and
       (B) to abide by the International Covenant on Civil and 
     Political Rights and the Universal Declaration of Human 
     Rights by allowing Falun Gong practitioners to pursue their 
     personal beliefs; and
       (3) the United States Government should investigate 
     allegations of illegal activities in the United States of the 
     Government of the People's Republic of China and its 
     representatives and agents, including allegations of unlawful 
     harassment of United States citizens and residents who 
     practice Falun Gong and of officials of State and local 
     governments in the United States who support Falun Gong, and 
     should take appropriate action, including but not limited to 
     enforcement of the immigration laws, against any such 
     representatives or agents who engage in such illegal 
     activities.
