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 ...

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 Missile Strikes in Syria
(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ) made the following statement in response to U.S. missile strikes in Syria. “Assad continues to target innocent women and children with barrel bombs and chemical weapons. With support from Russia and Iran, Assad has already slaughtered nearly 400,000 people. If the President plans to continue using military force in Syria he must consult with Congress, make his case in front of the American people, and present a coherent long term strategy for further action. Assad is a brutal dictator and the international community must ban together to confront his aggression and care for the millions of refugees and displaced persons and help them heal from the wounds of war.” 
Washington Review, April 10, 2017
While in Washington last week, legislation I introduced passed the House of Representatives, I attended hearings, spoke on the House Floor, and held meetings. Featured Legislation Russian Interference Transportation Meetings Foreign Affairs Featured Legislation Last week, H.Res.54, a bipartisan resolution that I introduced earlier this year, reaffirming the U.S.-Argentina partnership, unanimously passed the House of Representatives.  The resolution cites President Macri’s commitment to rebuild the economy, combat domestic corruption, defend human rights abroad, strengthen press freedoms, attract foreign direct investment, and return Argentina to the international credit markets.  It also urges the State Department to coordinate an interagency strategy to increase cooperation with Argentina on areas of bilateral, regional, and global concern.  Finally, it encourages the Macri Administration to continue investigating the 1994 bombing of the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association
Congressman Sires’ Statement on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes Decision to Step Down from the Panel’s Investigation into Russia
(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Sires issued the following statement after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes announced that he will step aside from the panel’s investigation into Russia: “I have been deeply troubled by Chairman Nunes’ actions throughout the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russia. Partisan posturing within our Intelligence Committee is not only a detriment to Congress as an institution; it is dangerous for our security. Though I welcome the Chairman’s decision to step down, I continue to support the formation of an independent commission to complete the committee’s work in investigating this important matter.”
Congressman Sires Condemns Targeted Bombings of Coptic Christians
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sires issued the following statement regarding the bombings that occurred during Palm Sunday services at two Coptic Christian Churches in Egypt: “I condemn these bombings which ripped through two churches in the middle of Palm Sunday services in Egypt over the weekend. Attacking innocent families as they come together on a holy day is the height of cowardice and barbarity. It is unfortunately another reminder of the work that needs to be done to combat terrorists bent on targeting people based on their belief systems. Coptic Christians have always been a strong part of the diaspora community in New Jersey and Jersey City is the proud home of the first Coptic Church in America. Just last week I met with President El-Sisi of Egypt and we spoke about the importance of protecting the Coptic community. As I said then, I will reiterate that it is imperative we work with our allies in Egypt to make sure the perpetrators of these violent acts do not
