Congressman David G. Valadao (CA-22) joined Congressman Dan Newhouse (WA-04) to introduce the Prohibition of Agricultural Land for the People’s Republic of China Act. Chinese ownership of domestic agricultural land has increased from $81 million in 2010 to $1.8 billion in 2020, according to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The large-scale state backing for these investments indicates a broader strategy from Beijing to control U.S. farmland.

"Not a single American tax dollar should be sent to the armed forces of oil-rich Azerbaijan - a country that ethnically cleansed Artsakh, holds Armenians POWs, and now occupies territory in the Republic of Armenia," said Congressman David Valadao. "President Biden should immediately withdraw his waiver of Section 907 and, if he won't, Congress should statutorily prevent any and all U.S. arms or aid to the Aliyev regime. The alternative - continuing to ship U.S. military aid to Baku despite its ongoing anti-Armenian aggression - sends Aliyev the green light to escalate his attacks."

“Reports of inhumane treatment of these prisoners, as well as misrepresentation by Azerbaijani authorities to justify their continued capture, makes clear this is an issue of both human rights and international law,” said Congressman Valadao. “I wholeheartedly condemn Azerbaijan for their failure to uphold the November 9 agreement, and I implore them to return all Armenian captives immediately.”
