Republican Senator Marco Rubio said Monday he brought in Rushan Abbas, a supporter of the rights of China's Muslim Uighurs, as a guest on President Donald Trump's annual State of the Union

The House voted nearly unanimously last year for legislation calling for a tougher response to China’s treatment of its Uighur Muslims. The bill has bipartisan support in the Senate, but the Senate’s Republicans leaders have so far not scheduled a vote in that chamber.

Members of Congress often invite guests to the nationally televised speech as a way to bring attention to political positions.
