I support H.Con.Res. 122 (112th) ("Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should resume normal diplomatic relations with") because the Taiwan Relations Act was enacted on the constitutional foundations of the plenary powers doctrine. The exercise of the foreign affairs power does not exist in a vacuum but such is conditioned by the legislative powers of foreign commerce. The American interest in the human rights of the people of Taiwan is statutory policy. The TRA legislative record on the human rights clause demonstrates that Senator Pell and Helms were referring to torture under the Fourth Geneva Convention in 1980. The rights of self-determination must be secured to the people of Taiwan. The 1972 Shanghai Communique imposed a requirement of "peaceful resolution" but this objective can only be achieved by the pathway to self-determination. The inherent power of US v. Curtis-Wright Export Corp has more baggage than sales of any military aircraft to Taiwan. The inherent and inalienable rights of Fong Yue Ting v. US and US v. Kagama were first rooted in art 5, Burlingame Treaty of 1868. Taiwan has inalienable rights of self-determination.
