CBP Seizes 26,000 Pounds Of Human Hair

US Customs and Border Protection officers seized a 13-ton shipment of beauty products made out of human hair on Wednesday.

CNN reports CBP officials at the Port of New York/Newark say the shipment originated in Xinjiang, China.

That's a clue that human rights abuses and forced labor were at play when the hair was collected.

The US State Department estimates that over one million Uyghurs have been imprisoned in a huge network of camps in Xinjiang.
