House Votes to Open US Doors to Hong Kong Residents

WASHINGTON — The House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives vot­ed Mon­day to wel­come Hong Kong res­i­dents to live tem­porar­i­ly in the Unit­ed States, vow­ing to be a bea­con for rights as Chi­na clamps down in the territory.

The House moved by con­sen­sus to issue so-called Tem­po­rary Pro­tect­ed Sta­tus for five years to Hong Kong res­i­dents, mean­ing that peo­ple from the finan­cial hub will have the right to work in the Unit­ed States and will not be sub­ject to deportation.

The ini­tia­tive must still be approved by the Sen­ate, but it enjoys sup­port across par­ty lines, unlike a pre­vi­ous bid by Democ­rats to extend the sta­tus to Venezue­lans that was effec­tive­ly blocked by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and his Repub­li­can Party.
