Smith Accuses Obama Admin. of Giving China a Pass ...

The New Jersey congressman behind a landmark anti-human trafficking law is accusing the Obama administration of giving China a pass in its latest report on the global trafficking epidemic that has been likened to slavery. The State Department report cited nearly two dozen countries for failing to meet basic standards, nearly double the number in the 2010 report. The rating could subject any of them to U.S. sanctions. China, however, was not on the Tier 3 list of severe offenders. Instead, the country was kept for the seventh year in a row on a separate "watch list."The watch list is the ...

Chris Smith's African Abortion Adventure

Most members of Congress spent last week's recess back in their districts, talking to their constituents and getting a sense of what Americans want their elected officials to be doing back in Washington. But Rep. Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican, had other plans: He spent part of the break on a taxpayer-funded trip to Kenya, where he slammed the country's new constitution for allowing abortions in cases when the health of the mother is at risk. Kenyan abortion restrictions go far beyond those in American law, and Kenya's new constitution, approved overwhelmingly last August, codifies a ...

Smith Statement on Syria
Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations, released the following statement on Syria: I commend President Trump for assertively acting against the Syrian regime for its barbaric chemical weapons attack on the men, women and children of Khan Sheikhoun. These operations against the air base will hopefully degrade the chemical weapons capabilities of the regime and deter it from repeating such attacks. Until now, the Assad government and its Russian and Iranian backers have enjoyed virtually limitless impunity in their six-year-long slaughter of the Syrian people. The President acted decisively and responsibly to put these parties on notice that the savagery must stop and a negotiated transition of power in Syria must begin. I look forward to working with the White House and my colleagues in Congress to further guarantee accountability for the crimes against humanity and war crimes perpetrate
Asbury Park Press Op-Ed'Use Goldman Act to bring abducted children home'
Tonight, millions of Americans will kiss their child good night and fall asleep knowing that they will be able to do the same tomorrow. Unfortunately, for an alarming number of parents, this version of the American dream is impossible — for now — as their children are half way around the world, illegally abducted to a foreign land, leaving the American parent left behind and struggling to understand what can be done. Between 2008 and 2015, nearly 10,000 children were abducted overseas by a parent and, in almost every case, cut off from contact with the left behind American parent. The Hague Convention, signed by 97 countries, was designed to offer an orderly process for the return of these children to the country of “habitual residency,” or where the child had been living long-term before abduction. However, despite U.S. and international law being on side of the left behind parent, these cases often drag on for years, if ever resolved. Many of these parents have won in forei
Smith Introduces Bill to Help Combat Anti-Semitism
After recently chairing his ninth hearing on anti-Semitism, Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) today introduced the bipartisan “Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Act” (H.R. 1911) to strengthen U.S. international leadership in the fight against threats to Jewish communities.     Smith authored the provisions of law that created the State Department Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism and the Special Envoy to lead it in 2004.      “Jewish communities here and abroad continue to be targeted for hatred and deadly violence. America has a proud bipartisan history of leading the fight against anti-Semitism—a history we must build upon and expand,” said Smith, who has been a champion against anti-Semitism for decades. “The Special Envoy is critical to focusing and redoubling our leadership and this bill enhances the position.”      The legislation follows a bipartisan letter, signed by Smith and 166 other Hous
The Obama Administration’s indefensible refusal to use the sanctioning tools embedded in the Goldman Act has been noted by other governmentsSmith Urges New Administration to Bring Back America’s Stole
Today, Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) chaired a hearing entitled, “Enforcement is Not Optional: The Goldman Act to Return Abducted American Children,” to give a voice to families suffering from international parental child abduction—inviting the new Administration to make these cases a priority and use Smith’s law, the Goldman Act, to finally bring them home.       “Congress unanimously adopted the Goldman Act in 2014 to ensure that any Administration takes effective action when a country refuses to return an abducted American child,” said Smith, who authored the Sean and David Goldman Child Abduction Prevention and Return Act of 2014 (P.L. 113-150) to provide government support and assistance to abducted children and their left behind parents. “The Obama Administration’s record shows repeatedly that a words-only strategy will not get us past the abysmally low return rate of 33%; the new Administration has a chance to show so
