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 ...

Washington Review, July 28, 2017
This week in Washington, legislation I introduced passed the Foreign Affairs Committee. Additionally, I voted to increase sanctions against our adversaries, attended a House Foreign Affairs Committee Hearing on the continued fight against terrorism, spoke to the next generation of leaders at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s (CHCI) Ready to Lead Next Generation Program, and attended a markup in the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. I also spoke on the importance of affordable housing, and held a number of meetings. Affordable Care Act CHCI Ready to Lead Next Generation Program Transportation and Infrastructure Markup Affordable Housing Event Meetings NICA Act Foreign Affairs Hearing Iran, North Korea, and Russia Sanctions Affordable Care Act Early Friday morning, numerous attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act collapsed once again in the Senate.

Congressman Sires' Statement on Maduro's Move to Destroy Democracy in Venezuela
(Washington, D.C.)-  Congressman Albio Sires issued the following statement regarding Venezuela’s constituent assembly vote: "Maduro continues his quest to complete the 'Cubanization' of Venezuela and destroy all remaining democratic institutions. His sham constituent assembly was nothing more than a desperate move to shut out pro-democracy leaders who are fighting for the Venezuelan people. The Venezuelan people have shown tremendous courage and commitment to fighting for their country and I stand with them in their efforts to maintain strong democratic principles. I commend our partners in Mexico, Canada, Argentina, Peru, Panama, Brazil, and Colombia in calling out this fraudulent vote for what it is- a total farce. I implore our other allies in the region to be on the right side of history during this historic time and stand with the Venezuelan people who are asking for nothing more than their human and constitutional rights."
Congressman Sires Announce SAFER Grant Award for Hoboken Fire Department
(Washington D.C.) – Congressman Sires congratulated the Hoboken Fire Department for       receiving a grant worth $667, 539 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The funding was awarded by the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) program which seeks to increase the number of trained firefighters in communities. This program provides grants to fire department and volunteer firefighter organizations in order to allow them to hire new career firefighters, rehire recently laid-off firefighters, or to recruit or retain firefighters. “I am very pleased that the Hoboken Fire Department has received this award which will allow our communities to have a faster, safer, and more efficient emergency response,” said Rep. Sires. “This critical funding will provide our emergency responders with the necessary tools to continue keeping our communities safe.” 
Congressman Sires’ Statement on the Sanctioning of Nicolás Maduro for Undermining Democracy in Venezuela
(Washington, D.C.)-  Congressman Albio Sires issued the following statement regarding sanctions against Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela: "There is no doubt that Maduro used this sham constituent assembly to declare himself leader for life in Venezuela. For years, Maduro has been working to consolidate power, chip away at Venezuela's democracy, and disenfranchise the innocent Venezuelan people. Holding him accountable for his actions, calling this power grab out for what it is, and standing shoulder to shoulder with the Venezuelan people should be a top priority for all of our allies and neighbors in the Western Hemisphere.”
