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 ...

The letter, to object to the proposal to slow first-class service and close processing centers, was lead by Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN). “The Post Office plays a vital role in our community, providing affordable and reliable service that many citizens and businesses depend on” said Congressman Sires. “Reducing service will disproportionately affect millions of Americans and cut thousands of jobs.” On ...


Pay Roll Tax Cuts And Unemployment Benefits Extension


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 Pardon of Joe Arpaio
(Washington, D.C.) - Today, Congressman Sires issued the following statement on President Trump's decision to pardon former Sheriff Joe Arpaio who was convicted of criminal contempt of court:"Last night, President Trump once again proved he is willing to give a rubber stamp of approval to racism and bigotry when he pardoned Joe Arpaio. Arpaio repeatedly targeted, tormented, and harassed Latinos based on their race, routinely violating the 4th Amendment. By ignoring the court's ruling and abusing his power to pardon one of his early supporters, the President has shown a complete disrespect for the rule of law and elevated a man who sought to sow fear and distrust across the country.  Rather than working to unite the nation, this action follows in the President's pattern of divisiveness and goes against the core values of our nation. I condemn his actions and will continue to stand against racism, bigotry, and hatred in all its forms."
Washington Review, August 2017
The month of August was busy as I addressed current events, cosponsored new legislation, and sent letters to the Administration urging for the protection of important policies that are essential to the wellbeing of New Jersey and the nation. As Congress returns to Washington this week, it is crucial that we work together in bipartisan cooperation to address unfinished business and pressing issues such as relief for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Hurricane Harvey Civil Liberties Charlottesville Environmental Protections Veterans Kearny Point Vice President Pence Hurricane Harvey I experienced firsthand the devastation and destruction Superstorm Sandy inflicted on New Jersey in 2012, and some of my constituents are still working to rebuild their lives and homes. Now, our country is reeling from yet another deadly disaster whose recovery will be beyond any single state’s resources. Hurricane Harvey’s assault on Texas has left countless people stranded, and without homes whic
Congressman Sires’ Statement on President Trump’s Decision to Terminate DACA
(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Sires issued the following statement after Attorney General Sessions announced the President’s decision to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program: “The President’s cruel and reprehensible decision to end DACA with a six month delay is inhumane and devastating for families and communities across the country.  In doing so, the President is also hurting our economy and our national security while diverting critical law enforcement efforts that should be focused on those who pose a true danger to public safety.  Since it was launched in 2012, DACA has helped hundreds of thousands of eligible young people come out of the shadows to better themselves and their communities without the fear of being separated from their loved ones and sent to a place of which they might have no memory.  This decision targets millions of hardworking people who were brought here as young children and know no country but America as their h
