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, Pelosi Resolution to Help Human Rights Giant Liu Xiaobo Passes House
Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H. Con. Res. 67, calling on the People’s Republic of China to unconditionally release Liu Xiaobo and, with his wife Liu Xia, allow them to freely meet with family and seek medical treatment overseas if necessary.  Liu Xiaobo, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010, was in the midst of serving an 11 year sentence when he was diagnosed with liver cancer that had metastasized throughout his body.         The resolution, introduced by Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), co-Chairman of the Congressional Executive Commission on China (CECC), and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, also urges the Administration to assist in gaining Liu Xiaobo and his wife humanitarian transfer so that they can get treatments in the United States if they desire.  Liu Xia has been detained under “house arrest” since 2010 and has been hospitalized for a heart condition.       “The Chinese state media say
NJ.com News Article; Rep. Smith: 'humbling' to be in presence of Lakewood's Tuskegee Airman George Watson'Tuskegee Airman, Congressional Gold Medal winner George Watson dies'
Mr. Watson was born on Aug. 10, 1920 in Wildwood, to Jack and Anna Watson. He played football for Lakewood High School and was recently inducted into its football hall of fame. In 1942, just weeks after high school, he enlisted in the US Army Air Corps. He was sent to Tuskegee to help form the 332nd Fighter Group and the 96th Air Service Group, where he served as a supply sergeant and support personnel. In a talk at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst two years ago, Tech Sgt. Watson said he joined the service because his mother was scrubbing floors to make a living. The Army's Air Service was a way "to make a better life for himself." Bryce Watson said there still a great deal that hasn't been reported about his grandfather and the Tuskegee Airmen's role in the war, including what he called "Operation Fuel Tank," more popularly known as " The Great Train Robbery."   He was in Italy, based at Ramitelli Airbase. Operation Fuel Tanks is Bryce Watson said. George Watson S

Smith Leads Letter from 13 NJ Delegation Members to Oppose Summer Fishing Quotas
In a letter sent today, authored by U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) and signed by most of the New Jersey Delegation, to Secretary of the Department of Commerce, Wilbur Ross, New Jersey lawmakers expressed the need to delay any 2017 restrictions placed by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) on the New Jersey fishing industry. The letter highlighted the overwhelmingly negative impact the new regulations would have on New Jersey shore communities.      “A reduction of this magnitude will have clear and immediate consequences for the families and businesses along New Jersey’s 130 mile shoreline—many of which are still struggling to recover from the devastation of Superstorm Sandy,” said Smith. “The impact will not stop at the shore—local businesses rely on the fishing industry and the tourism that it helps bring. It is critical that any restrictions placed by ASMFC be delayed.”      The proposed regulations would inc
