In the "Prayer Request" column of the Sunday Worship Schedule for May 10, 2019 of Kong Fok Church, Evangelical Free Church of China (Hong Kong), it is written: "In memory of the proposed amendment to Fugitive Offenders Ordinance, which has recently sparked off debate at the Legislative Council, may God guard all the parties so that they may tranquilly and rationally discuss the issue, and dispel the public's doubts and worries."

On April 28, 130 thousand Hongkongers took to the street to protest against the extradition law. On May 11, pan-democracy lawmakers clashed with pro-establishment lawmakers in the Legco over the controversial bill.

The Hong Kong Government claims that the aim of the proposed amendment to the extradition law is to fill up a loophole in the HK legal system, ostensibly highlighted by a case of murder, in which a HK man, after allegedly killing his HK girlfriend while traveling in Taiwan, returned to HK. The Taiwanese authorities, however, have disapproved of the amendment. Many Hongkongers are worried that the real purpose of the amendment is to make it possible to transfer anybody in HK, including Hongkongers and Westerners, whom the CCP dislikes, to China, whose record of rule of law is abhorrent, to say the least. A recent USCC report has warned that should the extradition law be passed, America may cancel the Hong Kong Policy Act.
