Marco Rubio said the US needed to fight back against the "extraterritorial reach" of the Chinese government to better protect Uyghurs around the world, citing a CNN investigation into the alleged deportation of Uyghurs from several major Arab countries.

(CNN)US Sen. Marco Rubio said Thursday that the United States needed to fight back against the "extraterritorial reach" of the Chinese government to better protect Uyghurs around the world, citing a CNN investigation into the alleged deportation of Uyghurs from several major Arab countries at Beijing's request.

"CNN reported a Uyghur man being taken from his pregnant wife in Dubai and extradited to China," Rubio in his opening statement to the committee Thursday.

CNN's report, published Tuesday, chronicled a series of alleged detentions and forced deportations from three major Arab countries at China's request: the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

As Beijing's global influence expands, rights activists fear that even as Western nations take China to task over its treatment of Uyghurs, countries in the Middle East and beyond will increasingly be willing to acquiesce to its crackdown on members of the ethnic group at home and abroad.

The HRW receives reports of Uyghurs at risk of deportation on a weekly basis, Richardson said.

Richardson said the first deportation of Uyghurs documented by HRW was from Cambodia in 2009.
