The Biden administration says it is not lobbying against the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Friday.

The U.S. House of Representatives is set to consider a bill as soon as next week that would ban imports from China’s Xinjiang region over concerns about forced labor, the bill's sponsor, congressman Jim McGovern, told reporters on Thursday.
