Congressman Sires Supports Creation of Job Corps Program


Congressman Sires cosponsored H.R. 2914, the Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act. This legislation was introduced by Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and would create jobs through the establishment of job corps programs. “This legislation creates jobs by funding job corps programs,” said Congressman Sires. “While this concept may be simple, its impact would be tremendous, and nationally, over 2.2 million jobs could be created.” The Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act would create several job corps programs. Specifically, the School ...

Mister Speaker with our economy still struggling and unemployment remaining unacceptably high, now is not the time to take more money out of the pockets of hard working Americans.The majority is opposing an extension of the Payroll Tax holiday enacted earlier this year that gave virtually all working Americans a much needed tax cut.The Payroll Tax holiday cut the Social Security payroll taxes of over 160 million workers.Economic uncertainty both here in the U-S and abroad, makes this a dangerous time to eliminate an important tax cut that is saving American families an average of $1,000 per ...

Congressman Sires’ Statement on President Trump’s Decision to Withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sires issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States’ commitment to the Paris Climate Accords: “In 2015, the world celebrated the outcome of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) in Paris, France. The Paris Climate Agreement marked the first coordinated international effort to reduce global carbon emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change. The United States joined 194 countries in agreeing to lower its carbon emissions and to assist still-developing nations to transition away from burning fossil fuels. Today, President Trump has announced that the United States of America will cede its leadership role in this historic effort to address one of the most important challenges of our generation by withdrawing our commitments from the Paris Climate Accords. This short-sighted and selfish act not only damages our nation’s credibility abroad, but also endangers the fut
Washington Review, June 9, 2017
While in Washington this week, I discussed the need for ongoing transparency in the Russia investigation, attended a Western Hemisphere Subcommittee hearing on energy opportunities in North America, participated in a Transportation and Infrastructure Committee hearing on Federal Aviation Administration authorization, and held a number of meetings. Russia Investigation Western Hemisphere Subcommittee Hearing Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Hearing Meetings Featured Legislation Russia Investigation On Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence regarding his conversations with President Trump about the ongoing FBI investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

Washington Review, May 25, 2017
This week in Washington, I spoke out against the President’s budget proposal and the CBO score of the Republican health care bill, attended markups in the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, the Foreign Affairs Committee, and the Western Hemisphere Subcommittee, and held a number of meetings. FY 2018 Budget Proposal CBO Score Transportation Committee Markup Western Hemisphere Subcommittee Markup Foreign Affairs Committee Markup Meetings FY 2018 Budget Proposal On Tuesday, the President released his fiscal year (FY) 2018 budget proposal. This proposal calls for almost $3.6 trillion in cuts over the next ten years, which includes devastating cuts to essential job-creation programs, affordable education initiatives, and benefit programs such as Medicaid. The proposed cuts threaten the ability of low- and middle- income American families to access services such as student loan financing, tax credits, SNAP (food stamps), and Social Security Disability Benefits. This budg
Congressman Sires Condemns Attack on Coptic Christians
(Washington, D.C.)-  Congressman Sires issued the following statement condemning the attack in Egypt that targeted Coptic Christians traveling to the Monastery of St. Samuel the Confessor:  “Today’s deplorable attack on innocent men, women, and children is the epitome of cowardice and barbarity.  No group should have to live in fear of violent attacks simply because of their beliefs.  The Coptic Christian community in Egypt has faced continuous, targeted persecution despite their deep roots in Egyptian society.  This attack, along with the bombings during Palm Sunday and New Year services, serve as a horrific reminder of the constant struggle against senseless violence around the world Last month, I met with President El-Sisi of Egypt to highlight my concerns regarding the increase in vigilante violence targeting Coptic Christians.  I reiterated my long-held stance that it is essential that we work with our allies in Egypt to defeat extremism and stop these heinous attacks
