Ten major liberal environmentalist groups have been caught lobbying Congress to allow the importation of illegal Communist Chinese solar panels made with slave labor.
In 2021 Congress passed legislation outlawing the importation of solar panels made in Communist China by slaves in Uyghur detention camps, which Communist China evaded by laundering the panels through shell companies in other countries.
In addition, the Trump administration placed a tariff on slave labor-made solar products. As part of President Joe Biden’s “green energy” agenda, that tariff was repealed and Communist China was allowed to continue importing slave labor “green energy.”
Congress responded by introducing a Congressional Review Act resolution overturning Biden’s order and reinstating the tariff, which quickly drew the ire of major environmentalist groups, who rely on Chinese slave labor to make so-called “green energy” products, which rely heavily on heavy toxic metal from polluting Chinese pit mines.
Now ten of them have been caught lobbying Congress in opposition to the bill.
10 green groups lobby Congress on behalf of Communist China and Uyghur genocide.

The League of Conservation Voters, Natural Resources Defense Council, Sierra Club, Climate Action Campaign, Environmental Law and Policy Center, Clean Energy for America, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, Earthjustice, Environmental Defense Fund, and Union of Concerned Scientists have signed a letter to Congress opposing the resolutions and supporting the continued use of slaves to make their “green energy.”
The letter never mentions the products are banned because they are made by imprisoned slaves, instead referring to Communist Chinese slave labor plants as “facilities in the Southeastern Asian countries.”
The legislation is now before Congress as H.J.Res 39 and S.J. Res 15.
